While the concept of a dessert restaurant sounds fun, Espai Sucre is a half hearted attempt at realizing it. From the unnecessarily complicated way of ordering, where you have to fill out a form that not even the waiters understand, to the windowless slaughter house-like dining room, where you sit amongst shelves and plastic drapes; the experience is hardly awe...

I went there on a recent business trip to Barcelona. A colleague had this restaurant on his list. They only service dessert (sweet) tapas. The first evening we went there, they were busy, when we returned later, they were near closing, so we had to return another day. But it was well worth the return. You get a menu to... More

Do not miss this if you're a foodie, enjoy fun, artsy culinary experiences, or if you just crave a unique dessert! My family ate sweet tapas here during our vacation to Spain and it was one of the highlights of our whole trip. The staff and chefs are friendly and are so passionate about their desserts. The vibe is so... More

I read reviews and was excited in trying out the Sweet Tapas bar (we made reservation by e-mail). We went on Saturday at 20:30 (when they just open) and it was very empty in the Tapas Bar (but the restaurant was more full). They were very friendly and informative about how the menu works. We took a combination of 6... More

This restaurant is advertised as a 'dessert restaurant' (the name means Sugar Place), but it is more than that. Take one of the recommended menus and be surprised and delighted by both sweet and savoury master pieces. Also take the wine pairing: these are small glasses, but most are unique and lovely. The staff is very friendly and speaks English... More

I thought the presentation and the flavor were all on point, but for the price, I would have expected that the dessert’s size be more than one bite. Also, I thought it was quite strange that with a party of ten, the waiter went ahead and seated two strangers at the end of the same table. I’m not against communal... More

We had an array of desserts at Espai sucre. The presentations were definitely works of art. That was half the fun. The other half, most certainly, was enjoying the wonderful emulsion of flavors.

We arrived at the restaurant for dessert tapas and were seated on a table for 12 in the kitchen. We had a choice of up to 8 different desserts off the menu of 14. The chef explained them all and we were able to watch the desserts being made for each course. As each dessert was delivered by the chef,... More

What an amazing experience. Words can not describe. You must try this restaurant. Our waiter, Serge explained every meal and the pared wine, what region the wine came from and why it was pared with that particular food. Each taste was better than the one before. Highly recommend this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.
