We had the delicious lime and cod balls, the ravioli (actually a cream soup), and then the fantastic tortellini with artichoke and the cod with one leaf of spinach (nevertheless excellent), finishing with a creek brûlée (standard fare) and fresh mint tea. Altogether very good meal well served by polite, efficient and friendly Eva and her fellow waitpersons. Really a wonderful experience after a long day travelling from the Pyrenees.

Modern, clean and elegant!
We had no reservation but Juan, the manager, still prepared a table the last minute, while he served us two glass of cava by the bar, on the house.

We enjoyed great starters during 15 minutes, but waited no longer than 10 minutes for our main courses. The cod and monkfish was fantastic!

Our waitress Andrea was quick, professional but above all all, so genuin. I didn't know what wine I wanted but still she delivered, without serving the most expensive wine on the menu. We also enjoyed an amazing dessert, chocolate puffs was out of this world! Fruit bread dessert was also super!

This was our first night in Barcelona and I can't not be happier! Juan and Andrea waved us goodbye and I felt like a private guest at their home.

5 star for service, 5 star for food and 5 star for the experience!
