La comida muy buena, servicio deja bastante que desear, hacía frío pero nos sentaron afuera por que los empleados estaban comiendo adentro del restaurante porque era su hora de descanso, para mi es incomodo comer con frío, aparte el mesero siempre nos estaba presionando para que termináramos pronto de comer, recogió mi plato antes de terminara, ademas nos exigió la propina. Aunque la comida es buena el servicio es parte de la experiencia y este no fue bueno. Por lo tanto no lo recomiendo.

First trip to Barcelona, and Salamanca was suggested by friends. I think we were expecting more out of the food. However, food was decent, service was very good...our waiter was especially kind and accommodating to our children. Glad to have experienced such a popular restaurant, but probably would try somewhere else in the future.

They ask for tip; food too large and a little over priced, not stylish

The place is lovely outdoors. The food is great. However the place was very busy so the service wasn’t the best. I would definitely recommend this restaurant especially if you want to have authentic paella!

We ordered the parillada de mariscos. The fish wasn't very fresh and the mejillones had been cooked previously and we're dry. They forgot the almejas and some other shellfish but when queried they gave us a few almejas at the end which were very fresh but highlighted the lower standard of what we'd just eaten.When we ordered the food they asked us our nationality for some reason. ... Halfway through the meal there was a row goung on in the kitchen which did affect the atmosphere a bit. Ive eaten here before years ago but it now seems to be a tourist trap and a bit over priced. A shame really..

I wanted to like this place more, given the cute location and the attentive staff. However, my " ceviche " appetizer consisted of cold pieces of cod on a bed of sliced raw veggies. Um, what? And my supposed sole meunière was served fried in a mysterious brown sauce, with a side of mushy boiled vegetables. The desserts were the only thing they got right: tiramisu and and ice cream thing. Disappointing. They also tried to pull both the "unsolicited bread on the table" and the "add tip to your bill" ploys.
