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

We had the tasting meue, I booked on like with the web The fork so by doing this I was able to get a 30 percent discount. Including the price was a glass of wine with each course, not the glass of Cava that was offered at the start. The price for two was about 120 Euro. The food and... More

I had dinner here for my father's birthday and it was an excellent choice! We had the 35€ menu which includes 5 main dishes, two appetisers, and bread and excellent olive oil (for 3€). We had a very good Catalan wine for 28€. The food was delicious, combining traditional Spanish food in novel ways and the waiters were super friendly and... More

Within 5 blocks of our hotel, we booked a reservation after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We knew it would be an expensive evening but we went for the spurge. We were seated in an intimate upstairs dining area - looked like an estate library. We both went for the 7 course tasting menu for 50 euros each. Since... More

The place is elegant, simple and minimalist and so sophisticated in the same time. Food is exceptional and you need to go for the 7 dishes (other option is 5 dishes) First the cook is explaining you, at the beginning, when you order, in details what is is in each dish. If you are allergic to something, you just need... More

Tried their 5 course tasting menu for 35 Euros. Great value for money! Delicious creative dishes and amazing service. Several waiters and cooks and out to serve us and ensure that we have everything we need, to explain the dishes to us and to give their expert advice on wines.

One expects interesting and excellent food in Barcelona. This restaurant did not disappoint us. The restaurant is a bit out of the tourist zone of La Rambla, and it was a nice walk from our hotel. The most interesting dish for me was the monkfish with sea urchin, although the black turnip and parsnip cream with sucking pig was a... More

We booked this after searching TA for nearby restaurants with good reviews. We were not disappointed. You can choose between a 5 or 7 course tasting menu. The 5 was enough for us. A superb array of flavours unfolded with mushrooms, home made sausages, artichoke, monkfish, mussels, beef across the first four courses. The final course was an amazing combination... More

You just pass in the street sidewalk and you might miss one outstanding experience in Barcelona. The Chefs are absolutly amazing. I was there during mushroom season, and what a treat I had! The quality of the ingredients are great. The place looks formal but its quite frendly and warm. I had a degustation menu, and it was perfect. The... 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.
