    Great atmosphere and very good food with large portions. In the evening there maybe a queue, so people are waiting to get inside. But the place is worth waiting! Try the marine paella!

    The seafood paella is awesome!!! The squids and prawns are fresh!!! I love the Sangria as well with loads of fresh fruits.

    Great value, probably the best place you can go if you are an average tourist. The prices are great thanks to an agreement upon a catering school that provides the waiters. Food is very well prepared.

    The chicken & rabbit PAELLA was GOOD, it could've been better but it did the job. The HOUSE WINE was DISAPPOINTING so we ordered a half liter of SANGRIA which was AMAZING! Get Catalan custard dessert!

    Very good food and reasonable prices. Paella was really good! Fixed menu (menu del día) is 10€ (starter, main, dessert). On Thursdays most restaurants include paella at their fixed menu.

    Viktoria PotapkinaJune 9, 2013
    Great restaurant, very full during lunch time, so you might have to wait in line outside to get a table. The food is great though so it's worth it! Menu del dia is only 10€!

    Good seafood paella and black rice for its price! Get ready to wait infront of the place for atleast 15min, even if the place is half empty they'll make you wait outside just for the fun of it!

    Great service, even when the place is fully booked. Spanish and Italian cousine are equally good. Several delicious vegetarian options are available. Well worth the money spent.

    The service is - like everywhere else in middle-class restaurants - a bit slow, but the food is quite good. I had the roast of lamb with rosemary potatoes - excellent.

    The paella was one of the best I've tried in Barcelona. The meat was falling off the bones and seafood was so fresh. Plus, it's cheap!

    It's a restaurant for tourists, and it doesn't hide it. Prices are still immensely reasonable, esp. for wines. You get a decent bottle for less than 10€. Food is okay, mixed appetisers could be better
