    Fantastic little place, with long bar attached. Attentive staff who are keen to explain the menu. Really happy have found this place. Highly recommended.

    Superb tapas. Lovely staff. Would never have found it down a side street without reading reviews. Go - you won't be disappointed.

    We made a booking on Sunday at 6:30 pm due to it appearing as the #1 ranked family restaurant in our area. Unfortunately, the atmosphere and the seating were not well suited to our family of 4 which includes a 3 year old and a 1 year old. Their high chairs did not have a belt and the top flipped up easily. Our baby/toddler was able to get out rather easily which made us have to hold him in place during dinner. The food that arrived was good. However, there were several mistakes with the service. First, my wife ordered a mojito which never arrived. Second, our selection of assorted meats never arrived either. When we pointed this out, to their credit, they did offer my wife a shot or a slice of cheesecake. We declined both offers... Furthermore they listed a non-alcoholic drink option which when ordered they stated could not be made without alcohol. All in all, it was our worst dining experience in Barcelona even though the food that did arrive was good.

    Would recommend this to everyone. I am coeliac and waitresses could not be more helpful with what I could and couldn't eat. Pulpo salad was divine and the rosemary infused beef was amazing as was their bravas (even without the sauce), all washed down with a limoncello at the end. I'll be back in the future.

    The seating is very uncomfortable unless you are 6 years old. The beef tenderloin was very tough and chewy even cooked medium rare. It was an inferior cut of meat. We complained to 2 waiters, and one told us the chef would come out to speak to us. After 30 minutes, he did not come. My husband finally ate it because he was starving and his second tapas plate was never delivered. This restaurant was rated #4 but I'm not sure how that could be possible! We feel very let down by this site. Truly our worst dining experience in Spain.

    great armosphere, food and mojitos. the chicken croquettes were unreal and the patatas bravas were probably the best i've tried.i think they were coated in polenta before cooked so were nice and crispy. the waitresses were rushed off their feet the whole time but still managed to sit down with every table to explain the dishes. they could do with some extra staff.

    An amazing place. Best meal I've ever had. Food was delicious. Chef was very friendly and suggested dishes that we wouldn't have thought of having, including oysters!! Great atmosphere, great food, great experience. Would definitely return.

    Amazing, modern, and exciting tapas. Also nicely presented. Not just the normal stuff. I liked their oyster - the flavor(s) were just crazy.

    Le cadre est vraiment sympathique, très chaleureux ! Nous avons manger au bar juste en face du chef en pleine préparation de ses tapas ! Un bonus pour la convivialité ! Le service est de qualité, très souriant. Il y a un serveur français, très pratique pour nous expliquer les plats... Si vous n'êtes pas un goinfre, je vous recommande ce resto
