Out of the way place and family run. Good food portions and service, this is where the locals eat and is brilliant for soups and stews, in fact anything traditionally Catalan. well worth a try if you want an authentic catalan dining experience

We really had an expectation for eating good home cooking . We didn't expect a high level but we were very disappointed. Everything was as we expected when we walked in a good ambiance, two ' mothers ' looking after the kitchen and serving . A log fire burning and a neat and clean layout in the restaurant. The menu was 17 euro , as at weekends the menu of the day is not available. The starters were not too bad , my wife took the mussels and these were plain but well cooked , however nothing special in taste . I had the soup which was tasty but fatty . We went onto to the Paella . This was a huge let down . Almost no content in the paella, tiny scraps, and I mean scraps of chicken , boney tiny bits of beef and burnt out badly cooked 5 prawns . The rice was dripping wet . Didn't taste any flavour except salt . It's possibily the worst paella we ever had . Hoping for better we went onto to the deserts . These were worse than a supermarket quality . No taste at all . The creme caramel had no taste at all . No vanilla taste , not eggy taste not sweet caramel taste . My wife who is French had the Fromage Blanc which was dry and tasteless and the honey came out of a little square box . Terrible terrible terrible . It was service with a smile though , we didn't feel abused but it was a very poor meal and much lower than the write ups on trip advisor which we use all the time and normally find about right . We suggest you avoid this place there are so many others to choose in the area .

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and liked the reviews.It is on the corner in a small street, and it certainly looks shabby from outside. Nothing fancy inside but very personal. The owner was sitting at a table peeling garlic, which I took as a good sign.
Myself a cook and Spanish speaking, we discussed the menu and she gave her recommendation, which we followed. Excellent. Everything is fresh and with a nice rosado de la casa waiting for the food was a chance to discuss food with the owner.
I can strongly recommend the caracoles.
Excellent value for money.

You know when you discover a restaurant so perfect that you don't want others to know about it? Well, I've kept quiet about this one. It's tucked away in a side street that's almost impossible to get into because of the narrowness of the streets in this quarter of town. This offers excellent value for the 3-course Menu del Dia (which includes bread and a bottle of wine): at the time of writing (January 2012), it's €10,95. Sometimes, the menu is given verbally, so you have to listen hard. There are always three choices of each course: but the desserts are bought in and unashamedly offered in their wrapping: Flan (Creme Caramel), Crema Catalana (you know that one), Yogur (you can work that one out), Helado (ice cream). If you're lucky, fresh pineapple and Freshly-squeezed Orange Juice are added to the list (I know, Orange Juice as a dessert is quite a thing). The thing about this place is that it feels like it's home cooking. If you go at the beginning of the year, try Calcots (calshots). They're like overgrown onions cooked over a fire so that they are black on the outside. Remove this and dunk the inside into the special almond-based sauce. Order one dish between four. It's quite enough.
