The restaurant offered very good service. Expect to eat quite well. The menu options are more adventurous than the traditional tapas-focused eateries in Barcelona. One can find wider-Mediterrenean dishes. Though they have european dishes, at times, they still retain spanish interpretations of such dishes to produce mixed results. For example, their cheesecake is more like a crema catalana. The wine... More

If you want to define the word terrible, so go to Balthazar. Let's start with the staff. Very, very rude (and look, me and my wife speak Spanish). Arriving there, as the hostess saw that we were foreigner, treated us like crap. She left us waiting for a while saying nothing and then came back telling us to seat at... More

I liked the beautiful modern interior design and the way it perfectly matched with the set tables. We were 3 of us having dinner there by chance as we wanted to join our friends who were already having their dinner there. We orders our drinks and food (some starters and 3 different kinds of paella), but we only had our... More

This is quite a find, it is a bit off the beaten track on Rosellon a few blocks from Paseo de Gracia but is worth finding. The menu is imaginative and the food well prepared, I would describe it as a blend between nouveau cuisine and traditional catalan, the prices are excellent with a menu del dia at 10 euros... More

I'm really sorry to give such a bad opinion about this reastaurant, but I'm so disappointed about everything.. The service was slow and pretty much careless! We ordered the small octupuses with caramelised onion and rise as a starter and paella for 2 as a main course! The octopus was ordinary but the rise that came with it was so... More

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.
