We dined here on a recent trip to Barcelona. The building is beautiful, the staff were very attentive and knowledgeable, the food was superb - we had a taster menu which was beautifully cooked and presented. We were shown the private entrance hall of the building and they even provide a stool for your handbag so you don't have to... More

Yes it is more expensive than the usual tapas resto (we paid 350€ for zeven), but totally worth it ! We had a mix of barcelona menu's (4 medium sized dishes) and some of us had main courses and dessert. Everybody happy. We had two small appetizers upfront from the house. We were seated in a separate box (do not... More

A good tasting menu with all courses accessible for unadventurous eaters - no foie grais, offal or game. Great service and lovely interior

My wife and I dined here last May as part of our trip to Barcelona; I initially picked the place on its proximity to the hotel and good ratings for food, being in a rush I didn't read the reviews but looked at the star rating, boy was I in for a surprise! Firstly the building and ambience was stunning,... More

This restaurant represents everything that is wonderful about Barcelona. We had the Chef's Menu - 7 courses. They were delicate, interesting and exceptional. We went with the sommeliers recommendation and had a great bottle of red. This place is not a meal it is an experience Amazing

We had a good dinner in this restaurant. We selected a tasting menu, which was served very correctly and efficiently. Food is a bit sophisticated, but not exaggerated. The scenery is very nice, as this was an old building designed and built by Gaudi. It is a smart style restaurant, and I can only recommend a visit.

We went here for our last night on our most recent trip to Barcelona, looking for something a little special. With that in mind, we came here for the chance to visit this historic building, but also with high hopes for the restaurant itself. With those hopes, all our expectations were met and this was, truly, one of the best... More

Wow! Came for lunch, and were "early" arrivals, around 13:30. Very friendly greeting, and waiter was gracious and helpful. My wife had the tasting menu while I had a starter and main. We both began with a shrimp appetizer that was wonderful. She followed with both a fish (tuna) meat (rabbit) course followed by a wonderful dessert. I had grilled... More

We made reservations easily online prior to our trip - and it was well worth the planning! This is a must see, must do restaurant experience. We selected from the tasting menu and it was outstanding! Each dish was decadent, each outdoing the previous one. We dined on rabbit, lamb and seafood amongst others all uniquely prepared and presented. The... More
