This is a "high end" place, with a fixed menu of either 75 or 90 Euro/person. The food is unique combination of far-east and local cuisine (but much more far east). There are two places, one is a restaurant, where the seating is on a long bar around an open kitchen. Very nice an comfortable atmosphere. The food itself was... More

This is adventurous dining without question. An incredible flavour trip as you make your way through tasting menu. Textures and tastes were all an experience. Wine pairings were very well done. Sitting at the counter where the food is a must! You can interact with the chefs and get great explanations of the dishes as they are brought to you... More

This was a trip that will unfortunately stay in our minds forever. First, when we came to the restaurant, after given our names that we have a reservation, we waited more or less 15 minutes before anyone gave us any attention. Our seat were by the door, next to the restrooms. From the first moment we were not given any... More

This place is charming, its location in the middle of Raval besides Casa Camper hotel, its look of a simple bar, the feeling of being in the middle of the kitchen's action, its recently awarded Michelin star, etc. When it comes to food, the quality of the raw materials and the "out of the box" creations make a place worth...

Went here after more than five years of my previous visit, before they got the star michelin. Then with my wife, now with customers. Sadly it was a rainy day and we could not stay in the terrace. However they gave us a good attention and had a place on the front bar. The menu was a totally pleasant experience... More

We went here after our friends that were here 4 years ago really recommended - Looks like the food is being worked on and they serve it very nice BUT the food has no taste . Plate after plate we gave them another chance and it wasn't good . We paid a lot of money and it wasn't worth it!... More

Came solo, ate menú degustación june 2014. Food: varies from exceptional (80% of dishes) such as the sunomono which is a piece of art, to distasteful (20%) such as the red mullet variations. Service: mostly performed by the chefs, who seem unaccustomed to handling guests, varying from excellent to poor due to anything from arrogance to shyness. Value: excellent bang... More

If you like jellyfish, sea anemone, awful rubbery seaweed, monkfish liver, green tea sponge cake, nice prawns and a mini burger topped off with pig fat cheek and pork crackling with ice cream this is the place for you.

I can understand chefs tables and this concept being a very big chefs table but the lack of space between seats really isn't a good thing! It makes it rather uncomfortable! Having your chefs serve and collects plates must be pretty soul breaking! Hence they were pretty rude, unfriendly on the verge of being abnoxious! Having been to one star... More

I have been to Dos Palillos in several occasions over the past 3 years, and it has never let me down. There is staff turnover (normal in the industry), but this has not affected the quality of the food and their capacity to surprise every time. I believe many are not aware, that when you receive the sample menus to... More
