    The atmoshpere is cosy and warm. The quality of the raw fish good, one stop restaurant to experience in one of the most centric area of Barcelona.

    We were offered a seat outdoors as the weather was good, and it was a nice touch. However, we were not allowed to order any of the dishes served in the restaurant, which was from a separate menu. That was a tad disappointing as we really wanted to try the dishes that got the restaurant featured as Michelin Plate restaurant. We settles for Tapas in the end. Croquettes were really good, especially the one containing Iberian Ham. Roasted peppers was good too. The beef ribs were tough but full of flavor.

    Easter lunch with a group of 12 people: the restaurant was really nice decorated and quite formal, we booked with the menu formula so we had stsrters, one dish and dessert. All dishes were really good and tasty but the service was not nice at all. They were in a hurry all the time:when we were chosing the wine they simply took the menu from us and started making suggestions, then they toom our plates without asking,while we were still eating starters. From a nice restaurant like this, i would expect a different kind of service.

    Looks over substance. Very nice place , live music was amazing. The waiter was very kind and helpful but the service was poor. 15min to be seated. 15min to have someone come to our table. But the most disappointing was the food. Really average / not good. So I would maybe recommend for a drink for the lovely atmosphere and the music but wouldn't go to eat.

    Good food and wine. Especially the Japanese kitchen - authentic taste. A classic old school restaurant with centric location.
