Waitress and manager saw that two customers (my party) were waiting at door, they looked a different way and left us about 5-7 minutes standing at a door before seating us despite the restaurant 80% empty. Poor show of custom there. Waiting staff had no English, no help with wifi (despite advertising it's free!!) drinks order taken the second we... More

Just go there, you can't go wrong. Service, food and setting was all far above expectation. Just need a few words to describe perfection!

Visited Balthazar whilst on a break in Barcelona and I'm glad I did. It is an excellent restaurant with great food and a lovely setting. We sat outside and it was simply wonderful. The service was first class, the food was first class and the price was unbelievable. Would have no problem recommending this to anyone.

This place is pretty damn good, very reasonable pricing and good fresh food. The service is pretty shocking, some nice staff but that's spoiled by a few bad apples.... In particular a young brunette which makes for the worst welcome upon entering the place... We have walked out a few times just due to her rudeness. But good food- ignore... More

The interior decorator made a great job. But as nice as the location is as bad is the very poor service and bad food. Food is delivered to your table not served. One of the worst and unfriendliest places I have ever been...

We had a friends dinner in this place and we suffered the worst treatment I have ever received in a restaurant. 3 out of 4 waiters were rude, never willing to help, pressuring us to finish our food and drinks and acting as they could not hear us calling them. As for the food, it was average. It is a... More

This is a great restaurant with an excellently priced menu. Bottles of rioja crianza are 6€ cheaper than comparable restaurants. The food was good and the atmosphere is great.

Came across this restaurant by accident, and so glad we did. We had a lovely 3 course meal and a glass of wine all for 15 euros. We thought we would be served 3 small portions, but we were wrong. Our first course - a delicious chicken salad - was enough to be classed as a main course. Second course... More
