Surprising Asian fusion food experience

The dinning room (for the fixed menu guest, for which you must make a reservation) is on a bar around the kitchen. You can see the busy team of cooks working on the 18 or so dishes of the fixed dinner, but it is a bit hard to follow who is doing what for which customer, so it seems a... read more

A sushi bar style set up allows viewing and direct interaction with the chefs at this excellent restaurant. We had the full degustation menu which was a fantastic mix of thought provoking and delicious. Lots of skill and technique on display but never at the expense of the underlying flavour of the produce that are working with. Very good local... More

What a great place and wonderful food. We ate lunch there and asked for the restaurant's recommendations. We got a number of dishes that challenged our taste buds. My highlight were many but oysters in warm saki was an experience out of the ordinary. It is worth the visit.

Went with a group of about 12-15ppl for an afternoon tasting experience. We were suggested this restaurant by a friend and he had previous described some of the dishes including RAW chicken (???) to be great, but we were all a little nervous to see how experience would unfold. Every course came out was better than the last. We also... More

One of the best fusion tapas bars I have ever eaten. Fantastically blended pan Asian and spanish tapas in the heart of Barcelona. One of the only places I was able to get a seat in that has a Michelin star in Barcelona. I would strongly advise to book advance this restaurant even before you go if you can. I... More

This was an amazing experience. The food was innovative and different. Service was good. We did a tasting menu and were a big fan of the shrimp, nippon burger, sea weed, fried lamb brain, and multiple unique shasimi offerings. They were able to accomodate us on the terrace for a last minute reservation. But inside where all the chefs are... More

Went there a month ago but I am still impressed by their creative food. The combination of Asian food and Spanish dish surprises you every time. A little bit expensive and I think it's worth it!

This Michelin starred restaurant in the Gothic district of Barecelona headed by the former chef de cuisine at the once 5 time ranked #1 restaurant in the world, El bulli, in Roses, Spain is a flavor wonderland. The blend of Tapas with Asian influence is simply the most pleasantly flavorful I have ever tasted. Try it all. Make reservations or... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
