Fantastic food experience

The atmosphere is incredible. The service is flat-out outrageously amazing, like fast, spectacular, helpful, and very good. But yet it it's not "too aggressive" or annoying; they are discrete and the place can be intimate as well. This place is all about being top premium. You can pick 5- or 7... read more

We enjoy the RESTAURANT WEEK Menu promoted by The Fork here in Barcelona. We went with friends and the restaurant Chef received us as they where just opening. During the all service the staff was always available, specially the brazilian waiter (don't remember his name) that was really pleasant at all times. All food elements served were correctly explained and... More

A place to go but just few tables so it is not appropriate for groups. They have some menus all good. Really recommended but use the "el tenedor" discount for the more expensive menu...but i do recommend it.

No joke, I had the best meal I've ever had in Barcelona at this restaurant. The food is gorgeous, delicious, and creative. And the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Despite 3 amuses bouches and 7 courses, we were not overly full at the end of the meal. We loved every course! The tasting menu is surprisingly affordable as well.

What a treat! We loved the element of surprise and the individualized drink pairing with each dish. Don't worry, they don't give you an insanely large glass with each course. But you do get 7, awesomely thought out beverages that enhance the food. It's a perfect amount of the perfect choice drink to make the perfect taste more perfect! I... More

found this gem on "The Fork" website and took advantage of their 7 course/7 wine menu using the 30% discount. Excellent relaxing lunch with charming waiter in a quiet elegant venue. The only negative is that there was just one fish dish too many but other than that it was perfect. The menu changes every day and I told them... 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.
