Could say something about the lack of greeting on arrival and sitting down, but the main problem we had was that we ordered 3 tempura dishes, 1 vegetable and 2 prawn. The very nicely presented vegetables arrived in a reasonable time and we expected the prawns to accompany them. We waited and waited and asked whilst a table of 4... More

We popped in to this beautiful bar as we liked the look of it and decided that we would like to stay it is so stylish, it is close to 'Tickets' owned by Ferran Adria of 'Elbulli' fame so if you can't get in there try Ikibana for a different experience.The bar staff at Ikibana accommodated our group of 10...

Great food and service. The food was a great mix of some sushi and the brasilian food. The service was perfect. They were very polite and smiling

I am a sushi lover and have been to countless sushi restaurants! This restaurant makes an exciting combination between Japanese and Brazilian cuisine. The menu looks great, while the actual result tasted more good than great (maybe we didn´t choose the best items on the menu?). Helpful waiters, but slow service (and we were served wrong wine).

If you like Sushi and many more different culinary traditions “Ikibana” is the place. Very fresh food and excellent service – I was alone and was mostly welcome on a extremely crowded Saturday. Thank you. Sorry for the restaurant next door (big Fish) who did not give me a table for one - it was many free table in the... More

We found the restaurant by accident. The service and amazing and staff were very accommodating even though we had our 6month old baby with us. Nice atmosphere, food is very fresh and delicious, it was so good we returned again a couple of days later, and it didn't disappoint. Sushi with a twist!

We were recommended by a Barcelona friend, and chose the very interesting tasting menu. We had never heard of Japanese Brazilian fusion, but really enjoyed our meal. The selection of food was impressive, we couldn't finish, so if you choose the 'tasting', come with a big appetite. Service was very good, noise level very high, and crowded even on a... More

Second time we've been here and I have to say the first time was really good but.... This time it just wasn't, Bogavante uramaki went from heavenly to just deceny . Average overpriced Japanese restaurant.. Who pays 10.50 € for a mochi anyways ?

The service was impeccable right from the entrance throughout dinner. The door host was all smiles and the servers were very attentive and friendly. This place has a very posh setting yet relaxing ambience with the sexy beats of music playing at the background which was just the right volume. The entire place was also lightly scented with floral notes... More

Price is better in Ikibana Born. The other one is more luxury but is very expensive. Very good to go with a couple of friends but not for groups or celebrations. Food is good but expensive for the service and the space. Careful they charge more than 5€ for a bottle of water
