Visited this restaurant in July 2015. Found the food to be exceptional, the service was fantastic and we would have paid a lot more than was charged. We eat out a lot and this place is remembered for being one of the best value meals of 2015!

I made a reservation for a work Christmas dinner (10pax), with 2 vegetarians in the group. The pre-booking arrangements were by email, very quick and friendly. Once at the restaurant the wait staff were very attentive, friendly and very accommodating. Everyone's meal was top quality, delicious and well presented. I will definitely return with friends next time!

There is honestly nothing negative to say about the Accés restaurant: the quality is excellent, the price is not high at all, especially when it's compared with the high quality of the food, the waiters are incredibly nice, the location is perfect (it's just 5 minutes walking from Pl. Universitat) and the decoration of the restaurant is quite charming. It... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
