Impressive!

Great food - busy - and good atmosphere! Duck and pork was great for mains, and dessert - bitter chocolate and acorn milk foam is the pick. I'll be back!

I used to visit this restaurant when I lived in Spain and it was pretty good. Although it seems a little expensive due to its style and decoration, it is not. The prices are very normal and the food is very good. It also has wines in good prices. I had chosen this restaurant ot make my birthday

Something has changed in the past few months and it doesn't feel the same, the food is also not as good. Went there for lunch and the "menu del dia" was o.k. but unimaginative, I had it a few months ago and was very pleased. Went back another evening for dinner and decided not to stay, somehow it felt cold... More

Went by in person two days beforehand and reserved a table on the terrace. When we arrived at the agreed time we were told by the maitre d' that all terrace tables were occupied. He advised that I must have misunderstood him when I made the reservation because they don't take reservations for the outside tables. Well, it was a... More

Went with a group to this huge, fun restaurant. Though big and busy, didn't feel crowded. Good food. Happy atmosphere. Different levels (and a lift!).

Went to this restaurant on a recommendation of a close. I brought my mother with me and both of us thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience here. The head of the restaurant Juan Carlos was a complete and utter gentleman who was very attentive throughout the meal he ensured that our glasses were always full with water and the other with...

I don't tend to write reviews, but I feel it is my obligation to do so for the sake of all you out there planning to go to Balthazar to eat. This restaurant used to be a good place for group business dinners but I will never go back after the last time. I made a reservation a week before,... More

Wonderful place in the wider centre of Barcelona. Interesting food choices, delicious and good portions. Very good value for money. Pleasant staff and excellent sangria. Desserts to die-for. Definite recommendation for foodies.

It is convenient, but completely characterless. Think of it as the kind of restaurant that you might in any random airport in Europe or in the US. The menu is a weird mixture of flagship dishes from a a variety of cuisines (Spanish, Asian some Italian, some vegetarian, some broadly Mediterranean, some Burgers ), and while all the dishes are...

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
