Just got back to my daughter flat after eating here tonight. Every dish was interesting and unique. I can now add Jellyfish and sea anemone to my list of foods I've eaten. The staff was great and the atmosphere was also nice. I even walked away full. You can watch the chefs prepare the dishes and everything was a small... More

Been here twice since moving to Barcelona and each time no dish fell anywhere short of extraordinary. Every element at Dos Palillos is carefully managed from the fresh menu that features local specialties found in the Mercats to the beautiful plating, and finally to the great bar seating around the kitchen where you can watch the chefs darting about in...

Close to MACBA and CCCB, in Casa Camper, I found Dos Palillos, an Asian tapas bar in which I could have a Spanish-like meal in Japanese style. The restaurant is run by Albert Raurich a Catalan and a Japanese with experience in El Bulli (1997-2007) and then Ferran Adrià - it comes highly recommended.

Reservation process is very reliable (they confirm your reservation and ask you to re-confrim, if they don't hear from you they ring you up :). we had the 90 EUR degustation menu which is very good; and yes, expensive,... but a very nice experience and great culinary event. The young crew is very friendly, but somehow a real "host" is... More

We love tapas and we love the asian flavor, but this was for us a bit to strange. The food was nice for the eye and looking at the chefs making the food was lovely. But the taste was sadly to special for us. We had the big menu, about 20 tastes and stopped at 13. I was nothing bad... More

We knew about the food, and we like Japanese and expect a lot of raw dishes, the food is good quality but a lot of the dishes are a bit same/same in terms of flavors. The service however leaves a lot to be desired. We did not receive our welcome drink (part of the tasting menu which you have to... More

Very creative dishes, some had me a bit worried because I usually avoid raw shellfish, but no problems afterward. The fixed price menus are €75 & 90. We got the smaller one and the amount of food was just right. All well prepared, some very creative, like oyster in hot sake served in a heated oyster shell. They are also... More

The service was just a mess. They were very slow and disorganised. They keep bringing us the same dishes again and again and the dinner last for 4 hours (when the average time is 2 hours). I was very disappointed because it was a special occasion for us and they totally ruin our night.

Small bites at the Bar only & expensive set menu at the tables. A lot of time & effort to prepare the very tasty asiaticTapas dishes. Full of flavour. Each small dish was Outstanding.

We were recommended to visit Dos Palillos, and the experience was great. A very tiny restaurant-bar with a display of great food, service was excellent
