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...

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

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
