Must taste - get reservations!

The food here was soooo delicious and so beautifully presented. We went right as the restaurant opened hoping to get a table. It took a few seconds for them to go over the extensive reservations list to find a table that wouldn't be needed immediately. Ultimately we had one of the best meals we've... read more

Pla is a beautiful restaurant in the heart of the gothic quarter in Barcelona Spain. The design of the restaurant is beautiful. An incredible custom metal staircase sits in the middle of the restaurant. The restaurant is very open and even has sound baffles that remove the normal echo in large ceiling restaurants. The food is very good but the... More

The best... the wine. Canon Saint Michel. Too dark and the music arrived at 1.27 am. The starters was normal and the dish was ok. Details at the desserts with a great juice at predessert and truffels after the desert. 8 to the service people.

We went for a romantic dinner confident that the food was good based on the average review. Service was good, wine list as well. Unfortunately it turned out that the food was really bad. We had a nice evening as we had a lot of fun thinking at what Gordon Ramsay would say... On a scale from 1 to 10... More

We had such a different experience from most other people who have reviewed this restaurant, it almost makes me wonder if we were in the same place. We made reservations about a week in advance, and the place was half empty. We were served an amuse bouche to begin, and were surprised to find we were charged for it at... More

My husband and I visited Barcelona over Christmas break for our 25th wedding anniversary and as such, were looking for a very special place to celebrate the occasion on New Years Eve. I can't see how we could have chosen better. This was an absolutely superlative dining experience in every way from start to finish. The set menu consisted of... More

decided to treat ourselves when staying in barcelona, and it did not disappoint! the minute you walk in, you are made to feel special and at ease. The waiter gives you his undivided attention in a relaxed manner. And explains the menu and specials in a wonderfuly clear and simple way. The food, service (from waiter and waitress) and wine...

We went here for a special last meal in Barcelona. Though it was more expensive that other places we'd eaten the experience was worth it. It's a pretty, quiet little place with excellent service. The meals were delicious and the wines excellent. I'd recommend for something special.

I was here a long time ago and I loved it but now my sensations are quite diferents. The place is really nice, very romantic. But when it comes to the meal part, it's really deceiving. I understand that a lot of people may like the experimental cooking. But it seems to me a lot overrated what you get for... More
