Was given this recommendation from a friend and am so glad we went. Best meal we had on our trip. Mediterranean food with a very gastro-friendly twist-definitely not your standard Spanish restaurant. Gourmet twist on each dish- each one better than the next. Service excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling to Barcelona who wants a great meal that isn't... More

Pla was everything and more than we expected.... Amazing food, wine, service and atmosphere. We love Barcelona, but the food has always let us down, or maybe or selection of restaurants?.... But Pla was exceptional!!!!!! Would highly recommend and will be visiting again if I'm ever back

This was our last dinner of three in Barca. It was absolutely excellent. Tuna cooked and presented perfectly. Every course was both elegant and tasty - an elusive combination. Service friendly and knowledgeable. Will be first on my list next time.

We have looked for fancy restaurant for 1 year wedding anniversary. Overall the experience was good. We love good food and appreciate good cooking. The menu in Pla is short (as we like it) and include unique dishes. However the quality and taste did not meet our expectations. Also, some dishes were not as warm as expected and got cold... More

Pla is pleasantly located minutes from the Rambla but it feels miles away. Located at the end of a small street and in a meticulously restored building but with a modern edge. The food was very solid and with some unusual twists. Spice combinations that were both creative and delicious. The beet root and endive tartar and slightly marinated salmon... More

Hidden down some little alleys but worth the search. Great staff and service, lovely food, not ridiculously expensive and worth it. Know what they're on about with gluten free/coeliac meals. Beautifully presented, real attention to detail; highly recommend. Don't book on mytable website though, the restaurant had no idea of the booking we had supposedly made.

A nicely done restaurant serving modern Spanish cuisine. We had the roasted lamb with lentils and octopus with risotto and figs. Both dishes were very nicely prepared and flavorful. The place was a bit cramped and the service on the slow side, but acceptable. A nice alternative after several nights of traditional tapas.

This restaurant has great food and lovely atmosphere. My husband had the octopus with risotto and razor clam salad. I had the beet salad and the grilled fish special of the day. The food was beautifully presented and the service was excellent. This restaurant is in the old town of Barcelona.

Not cheap - but truly worth it. great food, great wine. AND - when you say to the staff..."I am not sure, I am torn between this and this and this..." they are happy to have a chat and help you choose a great dish and speak very knowledgably about the cuisine...
