This is an unassuming restaurant that definitely punch above its weight. While decidedly Japanese influenced this is not a Japanese restaurant. It is a creation of the owner chef Shojiro Ochi. He is a humble man who has lived in Barcelona for over twenty years and has taken his Osaka culinary training and melded it into the Mediterranean way of... More

This restaurant is a favourite of family members who live nearby in Gracia. Fortunately they had made a reservation for when I visited them, or we would not have got in. The food was exquisite and beautifully served. They reckon the chef deserves a Michelin star and I agree. I do not understand how people can say it is expensive.... More

We went there for dinner to try the menu which consisted in several small dishes including all entrées, main courses and desserts. A fusion of japanese and local food that had some intrigue in it, like the slowly boiled egg with foie&potato crisps. Mainly a nice experience in a quiet little place, something which is appreciated in a busy +... More

Saw the review and decided to give a try at Somodo. Arrived at 1330 but unfortunately it was already fully booked, so we were rearranged to dinner's reservation at 2200. Before serving the dishes, chef came to our table and briefly introduced us to each dish. We couldn't understand Spanish and chef spoke only little English. However, he still did... More

Hard to find a restaurant in BCN where the owner serves your plates and explains each dish in detail. Food is exquisite, bursting with new flavours and very original. This place is so reasonably priced for what you get. There are only a few tables so booking recommended as weekends always full. Will be back!!

Six of us had the prix fixe tasting menu dinner: 2 appetizers, 2 mains, a cheese course, and 2 sweets. Everything was finely wrought, light and delicate, as one would expect from the Japanese heritage of chef Shojiro. A good balance of ingredients including seafood, creamy yet light sauces, one meat dish, and fresh vege garnishes. Service was smooth and... More

The chef is japanese but he lives in barcelona since many years ago and he has created a perfect cooking fussion between two ways of eating. I have visited many times and always is perfect both the daily menu for lunch at a super prize or cat midnight. I like very much also the atmosphere, quiet and friendly. I strongly... More
