Food and drink

There is a wide range to choose from, from salads such as rocket with goat’s cheese or avocado and strawberry with rocket to calves’ liver and onions or mountain lamb with wild mushrooms and rosemary. Puddings are especially good – try the fritters with ginger and anis.

Ambience

The high-ceilinged, airy dining room is relatively quiet during the day, when most people choose to sit out on the large terrace on the Passeig del Born. At night, however, it is a bright and noisy space. Slightly quieter are the tables on the mezzanine.

Service

Mostly efficient and reasonably swift, though for some reason I’ve had better luck at lunch and dinner than at the quiet breakfast period, when things can get a bit erratic.

Location

At the top end of the pretty, mostly pedestrianised Passeig del Born, just in front of the old market.

Price advice

Main courses are around 9 euros, but be warned there is a 15% surcharge if you eat out on the terrace.
