    Nice but mostly crowded place for tapas. If you plan to go there with more than 2 people you should definitely consider to book a table in advance. Try to be very clear about what you want and what not. In our case we asked (in English) what a particular dishes include and the we get it served. In general we can recommend it the quality of the food is amazing. A highlight is also the dessert card, here we can recommend to go with the recommends of the waiter.

    Food was pretty good no doubt, service was also really quick. But something that bothered my friends and I was a certain level of discomfort we felt at the expense of the wait staff. I don't want to jump the gun, however we were 3 guys (brown guys I must add) who spoke no Spanish, however whenever we asked the staff to describe a little more about a particular dish, we were met with curt, short replies. At first we thought it was simply due to how busy the place was and then let it slide. However we noticed a few minutes later, 4 nice (considerably less tan than us and also non Spanish speaking) people sat at the table next to ours, to our surprise the same member of staff spent considerably more time at this table. Taking them through the entire spread, even taking them through the daily specials, which we weren't even made aware of. Honestly I hold nothing against the guys, however having lived across some parts of the world, it's always a little annoying to face such behaviour specially at a place where your total spend goes upto ~ 20 bucks a head. Just wanted to share this experience, wouldn't probably visit again and wouldn't possibly recommend it to other friends of distinct heritage. 2 stars are for the good food and swift service.

    Very well prepared Spanish Tapas, set in a casual bustling restaurant. An abundance of dishes on the menu, daily special boards and over the counter selection. Great for large groups and family to share the large menu on offer. This place gets really busy so head down early or make a reservation. Service is prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. English speaking staff available on request. Outdoor area perfect for people watch and catching some sun on the street. Credit cards and reservations accepted

    Fantastic visit - it was pretty busy when we went, but after waiting for a short while we managed to grab some seats by the bar, which was a great option. Just point at what you want and they'll serve it - everything I had was delicious and the staff were friendly. They didn't have the dessert we wanted, but recommended another and it was very good. Prices were reasonable. Highly recommended.

    The food and ambiance makes one feel like if one was going back decades. Your pallet instantly recognizes what tapas are supposed to taste like. The service is typical. Respect the staff and you will be will be treated like royals. The wait is long, though well worth it. The food is incredible, and quite authentic. If you don’t like it, you must not like traditional Spanish tapas. The wine selection is excellent. Value is above average for quality. This is not a tourist trap! It is busy, with mostly locals, because it is great! Wish we could reserve for our last night on Friday...a must do if visiting Barcelona.

    Crowded, noisy, fantastic food. The estimate for the wait will be longer than you end up waiting, although at busy times it will still be 30 minutes easily. Go earlier in the evening (around 7-8pm) and wait will be shorter. If you wait until the rush dies down, they'll be sold out of many dishes. The food is really good, although the English is spotty at best. Be prepared to ask for English translations of Catalan, or just order randomly (you'll get something good). The dessert menu is cool and different, the desserts themselves are delicious and sized so that you can have more than one without going into a coma. If you're nearby it's definitely worth the wait.

    4.5 really. It may seem more expensive than average, and that many tourists including myself are there, but not for no reason. They make excellent tapas, especially the ones with seafood. Totally impressive by the big squid and the razor clams, they cooked it to perfection by NOT OVERCOOKING them, leaving them 70% or 80% done. Wonderful mouth feel and full of original flavor. Don't be turned off by the line or number of people you see there, the wait was pretty short for me, they were able to find ways for people to get seated quickly. I recommend this place.

    4* for food and 5* for service and drinks We had a great night here. When ordering, we ordered a €14 bottle of wine, and the waiter told us the house white was better than the choice had made. He was right. It was better and less than half the price!

    Food was tasty but the experience was awful. Waited more than an hour only to be rushed like crazy. I wasn't even offered a second terrible, mass-produced beer. Waiter was annoyed when my wife asked if the house white was dry or sweet. This is just a tourist trap. Walk a block in any direction to do better.

    You must try mushroom&asparagus and green red pepper here. And their desserts are really good, especially three texture chocolate and coconut pudding.
