Cool place, great food

In a great location in the fashionable Born district near the Ciutadella Park this restaurant offers Japanese and Brazilian fusión food - and the combination works. If you are tired of the same old sushi, try this place. The decoration here is not as spectacular as the Parallel branch, but it has a... read more

We spent the last weekend in Barcelona and we decided to eat japanese on Sunday. After a few restaurants with the same answer: no table, we came back to our hotel and we explained the girl on the desk what happened - we are foodies and we heart japanese food - so she recommended a few restaurants and booked for...

It was a good dinner, but the prices were too high. You can eat better in other sushi restaurants for less money. The place is nice.

This place has the best sushi I've had so far in Barcelona! The presentation is beautiful and the fish you can tell is of high quality. We sat at the sushi bar and watched the chefs make all the rolls. They clearly pay close attention to detail and put effort into each roll they make. Not as cheap as other... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this place - me and my friend were searching for it for about an hour and a half and eventually when we did find it we didn't know what hit us. We were just amazed at how good the sushi was - such a lovely atmosphere and great cocktails! Not cheap but if you... More

The food was certainly very good. We had a selection of rolls, and then udon noodles and a chicken and rice dish. Very tasty and not too expensive. Service was swift and friendly. But I think it's aimed at a younger crowd: lounge music is mellow but just a touch too loud. And likewise the lighting is more akin to... More

Some of the best sushi I've had in Barcelona and also had some great appetizers and salads to go along with the sushi. It's pricey but not unreasonable for Sushi. Also, service was pretty slow but that's typical in Spain in general.

The waitress who served us was amazingly helpful. Perfect English, knows the menu really well and what was most distinguished, she explained about almost about everything in the menu. The food...

Other reviews promised great things so I decided to give the place a try. It was a stone's throw from my hotel, the excellent Hotel Ciutati. The restaurant was busy, but not heaving and I was served quickly..spicy tuna roll and noodles with 'mixed seafood'. The tuna and avocado roll was 'OK'. The tuna was fresh and firm and the... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
