Very nice food at reasonable prices

The menu del dia is a good choice for lunch at 10 euros. We were there for dinner and enjoyed two entrees, shared an appetizer and had a bottle of wine, all under 40 euros. The portions tend to be small and the main dishes don't come with side dishes so if you like potatoes or vegetables order... read more

The food is ok, think large chain restaurant. You can order something really good or average. Recently went with family for a lunch menu and it was ok.

We visited Balthazar upon our arrival with 7 yo kid as it was situated in front of our hotel. Excellent service and child-friendly. Courses were great and open wine selection very good. Honnestly, I do not understand the deception from past travellers!

There is a reason why this place is rated so average - it IS beyond average! I rarely go to anything rated below 4 on TripAdvisor but it was 26th Dec, public holiday, and after hitting shut doors on 3 of my choices, including on the place much famed 100m down the street, I decided to just settle for only...

Menu variety was great, and so inexpensive. Ny husband and I had 3 courses each and a drink and the total came to a little over 50€. So cheap for such lovely, nicely done food. Yeah it's not the most exquisite quality food available but for the price it's beyond fantastic. The restaurant has a great feel and look to... More

I was there for an organized dinner with a bigger group and everything was fine. The food is good, nor exceptional, the staff is friendly and the location is nice. Overall all the group was quite satisfied with the choice!

You can't say that Balthazar has anything other than an impressive look and feel about it. However it's a shame that the food doesn't live up to its interior. It would be hard to place the type of food they offer, the word pretentious springs to mind which is fine if you can pull it off. In this instance the... More

Why should you eat here? It has nice seating and goog acoustics, but the food is one in a dozen, if not two dozen. It is not expensive, that is to be said. Housewine is of the type " Bardolino". of the seventies. Sitting her could be anywhere in the world. There a better places in this wonderful city.

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.
