Fantastic

I heard of this through word of mouth initially, and it came highly recommended. Pla did not disappoint. The food, service and intimate ambiance combined to make it a magical culinary experience. Do not miss.

after eating rice, shellfish, tapas, I was craving a delicious steak!!!!! Well, I had a wonderful steak, prepared similar to Peter Lugers.( for those same who know) it was very tender, cooked perfectly rare, and had the same type of buttery "shine" everything else we had was equally as good. A very good choice!!!!!!

I had no idea about the place before my wife told me about it . I was amazed about the intimacy and perfectly followed and balanced by music in background . That was wow ! Even better was our server Anna explaining everything down to details , in one word true professional . It was nice to see an effort... More

I hate to write poor reviews. I would much rather experience great food and wonderful service. However, I would not want anyone else to visit this restaurant hungry and with expectation of a good meal. The cod fish I ordered had below average flavor. I was severely disappointed. My significant other ordered a different seafood dish and I can't even... More

This was recommended by walking tour guide and the food is a delight after the moderate sameness of tradtional Catalan food over previous weeks walking. Modern, well executed and interesting. The one let down is the slow and onconsistent, at times indifferent service, especially when it gets busy.

My wife wanted to try this place for about a month before actually booking our trip. Situated in the Gothic area down cobbled lanes it keeps its eccentric feel throughout the restaurant. Greeted by the staff we were made incredibly welcomed whilst being seated and throughout the meal. The food was absolutely amazing and the wine to boot. Individual palate... More

Came here with colleagues after stumbling upon it online, and we were thrilled. The decor is artsy and classy while still being comfortable. Make sure you reserve in advance-- we were lucky to be seated at the bar. The staff are sweet and attentive, and the food is fantastic. There are many delicious vegetarian options and most things are gluten... More

This restaurant was a recommendation from our hotel Neri. Once we found it (as up a side street) the entrance is low lighting with candles and has an upper floor very romantic setting. The waiters were very knowledgable on the menu and wines. They were helpful with English. Highly recommend.

Somewhat tucked away but well worth the effort to find. The ambience is very nice and the choice of food and subsequent delivery is excellent with many of the dishes having a Catalan twist. Staff friendly, attentive and helpful. Highly reccommended.

Nice place with very cosy interior. Very friendly staff. They explain you the proposals of the day by sitting at your table. Very original and it creates a home feeling. The food is good and local style. But soms dishes (e.g the squid we choose ) are not easy due to the rather complex and challenging tastes and herbs used.... More
