The restaurant is situated on a quiet block in Barcelona. We went for lunch and did the 13 course tasting gastronomic experience. It was amazing! Yes, the whole lunch took about 3 hours, but it never once dragged, as the service was fantastic and there was always a new dish or cocktail being presented. They also recommended some amazing spanish... More

The Gastronomic Tasting Menu with Spanish/Catalan wine pairings is the way to go here, to fully experience why this lovely, intimate place has a Michelin star. It reminded us of Chicago's amazing Alinea in some ways, especially the playful (and very effective) mixing of sensory experiences (chewing on a licorice root before tasting a particular sherry to bring out certain...

This restaurant has definitely earned its many accolades. Did the 7 course tasting, although in reality it was 9... The wine pairing was very good as well. Very friendly and detailed service, presentation on different plates was top-notch. The food itself was intensely flavored and offered superb contrast from course to course... Everything was cooked amazingly well and we came... More

There aren't enough superlatives in my vocabulary to describe a meal at this restaurant! My husband and I had their Gastronomic tasting menu with wine pairings. The unique tastes and combinations with the wines were perfect. The servers extremely knowledgable and gracious. It was expensive but one of those unique meals worth the extravagance. After 3 hours, we blissfully walked... More

We did the 7 course tasting menu, and oh my god it was good! Even when I have a celiac disease, was the menu created for me as good as normal menu. Wine list couldn´t be better (there can´t be more wines in the world, it incluedied something like 50 pages...) and the hosting and service was fluent, polite and... More

The food was some of the best I've had, lots of different techniques together with fresh ingredients made for a great tasting menu. Yes - it costs a lot and the dishes are small in size, but that's outweighed by the artful presentation and, most importantly, great tastes. The sommelier is very skilled and gladly chats/answers your questions. The restaurant... More

We did the mid-level tasting ("sensations") with wine pairing for lunch. Every plate was excellent and beautiful. They gave much thought to the food and wines. Servers were not only proficient, a few who spoke English well were very helpful at explaining our many questions about the food, wine, and city. We've been to other restaurants with more Michelin stars... More

We ate the 7 course Sensacions menu (more like 10 course with the added couple of dishes) which was unbelievable! The whole menu was out of this world. I also opted the wine flight which was a great decision as it made the whole experience even greater. All the wine was Spanish (including their own wine) and each glass was... More

We did the Sensacions menu. Wow. It was an amazing experience! Service was great. Each server was courteous and friendly. Each dish was presented with a description. The chef was also very accommodating in altering slightly a couple dishes to address a food allergy. The staff was all very concerned to make sure the dishes were ok for the allergy.... More
