El Cafe de la Placa
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 August 2016 via mobile

Don't have too big expectations, it is a simple cafe-restaurant where you can enjoy simple plates such as hamburgers, pizzas, tapas, or a variety of catalan traditional big toasts. Price is OK, in accordance with service and quality.

On 21/08/2015 we went to the restaurant to have dinner. The place is really nice and the square has a nice atmosphere.
After 20 minutes of waiting and trying to catch the waiters' attention my girlfriend went directly to one of them to see if we could order our drinks and food. He promised he'd be at our table in a minute, well it turned out to be 5 minutes.
So after 25min of waiting they took our order. We went for drinks, 2 main dishes and 2 pizzas for the kids. The drinks arrived soon but we had to wait another 40 minutes to get our mains but the pizzas were nowhere. The meat in the mains were good but they hardly served any chips with it. I'd say the amount was about 2/3 of a kid's portion. After another 15 minutes of waiting for the pizzas we asked the waiter again whether they'd forgotten about it or the oven broke? He assured us it would be there within 5 minutes. Well it was another 20 in the end.
So after 1hr and 40 minutes of waiting we all got what've ordered.
Not a good experience when you are hungry.
It really looked like they are trying to manage more tables than they are capable of.

Perfect little coffee shop in the square. Full of charm and atmosphere and they do great coffee too. Brilliant just to sit and relax whilst watching the world go by....

This is one our favourite places to sit with a coffee (which is excellent) or a beer (Mahou delicious). It's great at about 5pm when the young children finish school. Families and friends sit chatting while the children have the freedom and space to play in the square. Our personal favourite meal is the hamburguisa Sant Genise (I've probably spelt that wrongly sorry). I salivate when thinking about them once home in the U.K. We like them so much we haven't bothered to try anything else (and we don't normally eat hamburgers that often).
