Not exactly what I was expecting but everything was pretty good. My thoughts were "dessert" so when they brought out things with fish it threw me off! Still good though. The most memorable thing we ate was actually the warm little buttery sweet rolls they brought out in between courses.. Mmmm mmm!

We learnt of Epsai sucre through a food blog by chance while we were staying in Barcelona. We sat in the dessert tapas bar at the back of the restaurant, which is where all the kitchen action happens. It was a Friday night, so we booked in advance to secure a spot. Be aware that there is a minimum order... More

I went for my birthday with my sister and we both ordered the tastong menu that had 2 savory dishes in it . Unfortunately 2 of thw ingredients were unavailable so they substituted 1 savory and 1 dessert from my set menu from another. Desserts were the most amazing thing ever...loved the different textures and unpredictable flavors. The savory part... More

I ran across this by chance while walking through El Born. I've never seen a more creative restaurant. The main options are 4 dessert tasting menus but they also have 2 menus that do include a couple savory items as well but that was beyond the point :) I had the chocolate tasting menu and each dish was better than...

We had dinner in that modern setting. It's a specific restaurant which only makes sweet dishes. We decided to have the big tasting menu with paired wines, and were pleasantly surprised. We didn't know exactly what to expect and were a bit anxious as having a full menu of sweet dishes, but in the end it was an amazing and... More

Located in the funky, creative El Born district, this small restaurant only serves dessert, but it does so very well. In a town famous for its food, it's unsurprising someone has chosen to open a dessert-only restaurant. We opted for 3 tapas each and selected our ingredient preferences. You don't so much order a dish as a flavour and leave... More

The place has a nice concept. But if you want to eat at first and not just to have a desert, it's better to look for some other options. There's a small number of fixed tasting menus, and only two of them include something other than sweets. We ordered both of them accompanied with wines. The food was carefully-selected, beautifully-served... More

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...

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.
