Unique and very good

My brother and I ate here twice. The first was a five course with wine pairing and second was the chocolate menu. I preferred the five course. They use modernist cuisine techniques. Which having learned a few myself, I knew how the tricks were done. But most techniques were put together well. The... read more

This will rank for the most expensive dessert experience of your life - and it's worth it. Two of us had the three-course dessert. One had the five course. This is not something you'll do on a regular basis, but it's totally worth doing once in your life. Go hungry, do some homework so you'll understand what you're experiencing and... More

Was recommended by a friend who visited the restaurant before - main attraction is the 5 course desert menu! One of us ordered the degustation menu which includes two savory dishes- One was marinated mackerel and the other one was lamb with roasted crispy peanuts and peanuts purée - surprisingly great in flavor and superb in technique!!! . The desserts... More

You can choose between the restaurant or the tapas bar, so we choose the last one and sat around one big table for like about 15 persons (although we were just 4) and from where you can see the kitchen. Our friends took 3 tapas for €9,90, we took 6 for €17,50. You get a menu with 13 choices. I... More

We were very curious and wanted to try a concept that we thought was very interesting. We ordered 2 deserts and were disappointed: we found our deserts to be good but a bit too pretentious and definitely too expensive!

If you are looking for something different, this is a place to go. Have some tapas before and enjoy a tasting menu in desserts. All of them are carefully prepared and include exotic ingredients, the atmosphere is modern cool ( Less is more) But set your expectations, this is not a "usual " restaurant

This place was recommended by a friend and I have to pass the recommendation on! I found the menu initially confusing and my friend and I opted for the very reasonably priced taster menu - 7 courses. This is without doubt the most amazing food experience I've ever had. The main course of pork with a licourice sauce and onion... More

We consider ourselves pretty adventurous when it comes to food but Espai Sucre was a little too experimental for us. We had dessert at the tapas bar in the back for our daughter's 15th birthday. The restaurant space is very modern and interesting - a nice change of pace in a city with lots of more traditional looking restaurants. The... More

Be careful! We went there only to find it closed before the official closing hours. That's bad customer service! We walked for 20 minutes through the city because we heard it's good.

It is not quite a restaurant as I understood from a person who recommended it to me. I came after 10.30pm on Tuesday and can choose almost any table. The interior and the overall atmosphere and the service I'd say indulgent as if you are allowed to be here but not the One they are waiting for. The deserts are... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
