After having eaten many heavy meals, the review in Time Out about the Biocenter restaurant sounded too good to be true. However, the reality was less promising. We ordered the E10 menu, which came with salad, bread, a main dish to choose and dessert. While the salad bar was ok, the main dishes were bland and unimaginative. The greek musaka... More

After reading a Time Out write up on this place which said - 'generous portions', 'not your usual lettuce & tomato type salad place' we were expecting a decent meal, we were wrong! Decided on a sharing plate for starter, this consisted of 4 tiny crocquettes on a bed of lettuce, no dressing was provided or offered and it was... More

I am a fan of the Bio Centre restaurant, however, I have only ever eaten the marvellous lunch there. Yesterday I decided to try the evening's a la carte menu. The service was cold and there was the distinct odour of cigarettes about the staff. The service delivery was basic. The salad bowl was not held on a charger plate... More

My partner and I called in for dinner during a recent holiday in the city but were disappointed with the menu-too much reliance on tofu type foodstuffs and nothing exciting based on nuts or lentils.The food we had was well cooked,the wine was good and the service friendly but as a gastronomic experience the meal was eminently forgettable.Perhaps we just...

Buffet starter followed by something from the days menu. Tried food i hadn't eaten before, it was yummy. Buffet was great as you can have a little of lots of things. Wonderful.

We are not vegan or vegetarian but because there was going to be Argentine Tango in the back room, we decided to have our dinner there before the milonga. We loved our meal. I wish I could remember the name of it but it was pureed cashews topped with pesto and on top of that another pesto like sauce made... More

Nice place to eat with different launch options for vegetarians, or if you just want to have a good meal well priced in the very center of Barcelona.

Wow, I am absolutely stunned as to how this place can have such good reviews - perhaps we came on a bad day! I had to pour an absurd amount of soy sauce to make my tofu and vegetables taste of anything at all, where the introduction of a little ginger or sprinkle of sesame oil could have given it... More

We stopped for a rest and lunch... Such a great salad bar that you can visit as many times as you like and almost 100% Vegan too! Good fresh juices... My Carrot and ginger was great! A real pick me up from hours of walking. One main was disappointing though... Just all bland and boiled...not to our taste but for... More

Landed in Barcelona and went to Biocenter for our first meal of the trip. Definitely set us off on the right foot. The rather large restaurant is part of the Slow Food movement which seems to be fairly prevalent amongst the Vegan/Vegetarian places in the city. On weekends and dinners during the week there is wait service. Otherwise it's buffet... More
