Excellent food, excellent service, authentic Spanish atmosphere and staff. Going to Barcelona is like going on holiday at lunch time. I hadn't been for a while but was welcomed back like an old friend and the new chef has really knocked things into shape. Worth going back for another look if you had moved on.
It was my boyfriends first time trying Spanish tapas and suffice to say he was extremely impressed, I however used to dine here often when working just around the corner. We will be back for more!
