El Mussol used to be in my top ten list, but unfortunately the service is getting really bad. I have been waiting for 25 minutes in an empty restaurant. Two waiters and only 6 occupied tables. Then food arrived 20 minutes after I complained. The waitress seemed upset because I was not happy sitting there wasting my time, and she... More

The reviews of this restaurant were not too promising but my friend and I needed something different than tapas. At 7 p.m. the huge restaurant was completely empty and only a handful of guests came in until we left. The menu was available in several languages and seemed to scream "tourist place", however I was pleasantly surprised. My friend had... More

We were new to the neighborhood and looking for a good dinner after a long day of travel. Tried Mussol on Diagonal 488. The grilled chicken was best we have had, ever. Would return anytime. Service was not fast but was OK. Later mentioned our visit to Hotel Front Desk and was told it is well known for very good... More

Ask for Mickey; wonderful waiter with a good grasp of English and a terrific sense of humor. I had the lamb both nights we were there, as well as their version of baked potato. Both were excellent.

We had discount coupons which they refused to honor, having assured us when we arrived that they would. This topped off an evening of mediocre food and appallingly indifferent service.

20 minutes I've been waiting to get served but either I'm invisible or noone is interested. Had to ask a waitress to show me the menu and since then I've been blanked. Ridiculous.

Was recommended this restaurant by the staff at our hotel. We had a lovely meal of a shared local Catalonian cheese & ham platter followed by the waiter's recommendation of beef with goat cheese. The service was quick and efficient, the food and wine good especially after a long day sight seeing and very reasonably priced.

The restaurant is pretty big, but yet cosy to eat. The meat is grilled on oak charcoal. Hmmm ! The waiter was cool. No nonsense, but good service. Quality food. Wine was well handled. The atmosphere reminds me on the Brasseries in Brussels, but more Barcelona style. Good prices !

It is on the Avd. Diagonal and thus it is a good choice to avoid the non-cheap restaurants around that area. The food (meat, fundamentally) is typical spanish but the choices are limited. The rooms are very very nice and we found also the personnel happy to help and very gentle. The price is right for the food, nothing special... More
