This really was one of the best meals I've ever eaten. We did the 5 course tasting menu but it felt like more as several courses consisted of several plates! We shared one wine pairing as it was lunchtime and this was not a problem! The staff were accommodating and friendly and the food was exceptional... If you are looking... More

Fantastic restaurant and one of the best I've ever tried. Super interesting food and wine and very well presented also. The taster menu and wine menu are absolutely great. Expect around 200EUR per person but it's absolutely worth it. Has only 7-8 tables so booking is required.

Had the 8 course tasting menu with paired wines at 100 euro each for the food and 50 euro for the fine, certainly an extravagance but worth it for a special occasion. Both food, wine, service and experience all top notch.

10 tables and you get what you pay for. The dishes were an explosion of taste and the arrangement was beautiful. You will always remember this degustation experience!

I really wanted to like this contemporary restaurant, but I didn’t. The pigeon dish was stunning (perfectly tender, very rare breast, and pigeon liver croquettes that popped in the mouth spilling their deliciously creamy contents). Everything else tasted off balance to me. Many dishes (including some savory ones) were way too sweet to my liking. Salt use was sporadic (sometimes... More

Ate here for my birthday dinner ... Outstanding! One of the best meals we have ever had. Highlight was certainly the foie gras. Just melted in your mouth. Service was extraordinary. Get the full tasting and wine pairing, you will be glad you did!

We managed to get a last minute booking at this restaurant on the first night we arrived. We were very lucky because the restaurant was completely booked. So, to keep it short, the menu of 19 tasting dishes and wine pairings was a beautiful, innovative experience. We went with my husband's two teenagers (14 & 17) and the staff were... 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.
