This restaurant provided us with one of the most memorable meals of our lives. We are 'food tourists' and visited Barcelona for a week specifically to check out the tapas scene and we will never forget Tickets - a shining example of innovation and fun in food. There were 6 adults in our party, all of whom loved the night.... More

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this restaurant! Reservations only open exactly 60 days before the day of booking and they open at midnight, Barcelona time. Thankfully that was about 8am in the morning in Brisbane, Australia so once we knew our date, I went into the booking system as soon as it turned midnight in Barcelona and booked the table. The menu... More

Having to make reservations at least 1-2 months in advance to eat in this restaurant and its amazing food (both in presentation and taste), I was determined to try it. I booked it online 2 months before going to Barcelona. Arriving there I realized that several tables were empty and it was a marketing strategy. The casual and funky setting... More

We really did not know what to expect, and after working very hard to get reservations, online within the time limits set by the restaurant, we were overwhelmed by our meal. Our delightful server offered us the choice of ordering from the menu or having a surprise meal chosen by her, based on our likes. Her original offer was $100... More

Let me preface my review by explaining that I am an amateur chef and came here with a very high expectation and critical perspective. I have studied all of the El Bulli techniques and cooked numerous of their dishes at home (just from Tickets menu - spherical olives, cheese pillows, cauliflower cous cous, etc). Sadly, my home attempts tasted much... More

.....what a great and unexpected gem in lovely Barcelona! I have heard about Tickets before but didn't not expect such outstanding food in a beautiful setting. The highlights definitely were "olives", cauliflower crumble (as simple as it sounds), manchego airbags (divine!), cannelloni avocado, tunabelly confit.......we kept ordering and ordering and when the tasting of tapas was over (but we were...

Tickets is by far the best gastronomic experience I have enjoyed in my life. I feel privileged to have experienced it with my girlfriend. If you have the opportunity, don't waste, you will regret it.

A must go for all foodies. Overall you're taken to an imaginary world for a food experience and it works. The setting helps you get there and the food sure takes you there. I think it's a bit overrated and you probably can get similar experiences on other places at a more acceptable price. The struggle to get a table... More

Everything you have read and heard about Tickets are true! Tickets is a celebration of art, theatre and science. The decor, service and food were a carnivale experience. There two choices - a la carte or tapas eat as much as you need and say stop ...and dessert begins! Each dish was a gastronomic epiphany! From the snacks....the delightful olives... More

After eating countless croquettes, calamari and mussels and being our 6th and last night in Barcelona, I was so longing for something different and boy I was not disappointed. The casual atmosphere and vibe was refreshing, and by far the best thing we did was allow our waiter (after she asked some vital questions) to choose everything for us. Only... More
