I found Pla by attending a private reception there during a major trade show - and liked it so much, I went back for dinner a couple of days later. Fairly limited but varied menu, and it tends to get noisy inside, but well worth a visit.

My fiance and I visited Pla in the summer of 2014 on the recommendation of our hotel reception. The location is (much like anywhere in the Gothic Quarter) nestled away, but easy to spot and welcoming. Service was faultless, though a little less incredulation in response to my question "Could we have some water for the table" would have made... More

We booked at table 3 months ahead mentioning that we wish to take the tasting menu. It was a nice and warm welcome upon our arrival. The service staff has good English skills, one was even speaking French. Unfortunately they did not offer the tasting menu since it was a holiday... The interior design is quite dark and special.

We went here based on a recommendation. Might not have found it since it is tucked back off the main road. We were treated to a glass of cava upon arrival, had an excellent meal. Might not be the least expensive, but not overly priced and worth it. I want to go back for the shaved ham appetizer and tomato... More

I read somewhere that Pla is one of the most romantic restaurants in Barcelona. I really agree with this opinion. Place itself has amazing atmosphere, waiter(sadly, i don't remember his name) was very courteous and hepful. Food was very delicious, beautifully served. Plus on the evening we were there, there was a live music that made our visit very pleasant.... More

What a beautiful restaurant. I loved everything about this place, if you are after a romantic place to eat then look no further. The food was extremely good, the waiters were excellent and able to give advice on what to order/ which wines etc. We both had fish, mwahhh. Puddings were good, especially the Lemon tart thing. To finish I'd... More

The restaurant was full but luckily they were able to offer is a seat at the bar for half an hour until a table became available. While we were there the phone rang a few times for bookings for that night&... More

We visited this restaurant two years ago and we had to come back now. Just like two years ago our visit ended up with us booking a table again for another evening. Seems like one time is just not enough with all that delicious food! The waiters are so friendly and really takes the time to explain the food and... More

We found this place by chance while wandering through El Barrio Gotico...it was clear from the beginning there was something special in there. And we were proved right: truly unique dishes proposals, very attentive service, competent waiters, great atmosphere. Memorable dinner experience.
