A wonderful, high end restaurant at an extremely reasonable price. We chose the Degustacio Menu, a 7 course dining experience paired with 5 local wines.At 80e per person, discounted 30% due to booking through Trip Advisor, it was a bargain. Well worth 80e pp. A sampling of 3 salts and 2 olive oils were supplied by our waiter which was... More

It was difficult getting a reservation for dinner so I settled for lunch instead. Having read the reviews and comments, I was looking forward to dining there. I was not disappointed at all! The wait staff was very knowledgeable in food, recommendations were made perfectly (even with our waiters limited English and our very poor Spanish!). Their wine selection was... More

The waiter made it clear his English was not 100 per cent so we struggled a small amount but it was certainly better than my spanish and we appreciated the effort. We were also a bit difficult as after booking this I found myself on a restricted diet that they certainly tried to cater for once advised. The chefs and... More

We went for the 7 course menu with wine pairings, and really enjoyed the experience; the knowledge and enthusiasm of the staff shone through. Some of the courses were more impressive than others, but the menu was beautifully balanced, proportioned and presented. We were in the room upstairs, which was cosy and lined with books and bottles. The wines were... More

Really creative and flavorful food...Mediterranean inspired cuisine with local fresh ingredients that go great with their suggested wine pairings. Wonderful staff who is happy to share their enthusiasm for food. Enjoyed the tasting menu which included a creative take on foie gras, cod that burst with both ocean and citrus flavors, and oysters prepared with mascarpone and lime foam. Desserts... More

We decided to go for broke...the 7 course menu with all the wine pairings! I don't think I'll eat again! Each course was beautifully proportioned, exquisitely presented and tasted like it was meant for the gods! We are real foodies...and the service, presentation and food was superb! Could I choose a favorite course...perhaps the foie...maybe the leek velouté..no, maybe the... More

I came here last week with my partner for our anniversary and I have only positive things to say about the place. The restaurant is not huge, but has a cosy elegance, especially upstairs, which is stylishly decorated with books and wine bottles giving it a homely almost living room feel. We booked the restaurant through El Tenedor and so... More

This was one of our favorite dining experiences in Barcelona. The food was exceptional. We went for lunch and were also very impressed with their courteous staff. This is a tasting restaurant and you have 2 options with a smaller 5 course menu or larger at 7. We did the smaller and loved every course. We will definitely be returning... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
