Families and noisy groups of pals are drawn to this classic eatery for cargols a la llauna (snails sautéed in a tin dish), filet de bou amb salsa de foie (a thick clump of tender beef drowned in an orange and foie gras sauce), and other Catalan specialities.

You'll also find curious mar i muntanya (sea and mountain) combinations like peus de porc amb gambes (pig trotters with prawns).
