Excellent restaurant

You navigate through the back streets to find Pla and then wow, you enter a different world. Very friendly staff and a great menu and supporting wine list. Great atmosphere and interesting decor, well worth the visit for sure.

So, Pla is a little slower than a lot of options in Barcelona, but for good reason. It is a nice room and worthy of relaxing and enjoying a glass of Cava or wine. The service is nice and cozy and the food excellent. Enjoy it!

Had a meal here with my wife on our last night in Barcelona. Nice looking restaurant with trendy/cosy decor. It was a bit more expensive as to where we would normally eat but thought it might be worth it. My starter Manchego cheese was very nice and resented very well, my wife was not so happy with her salad which... More

The food was consistently terrible: stringy and tough corvina ceviche, lifeless piece of monkfish cooked sous-vide and rewarmed but not all the way through, stewed fennel that tasted like mush studded with tough fibers, scarily salty anchovies combined with completely bland eggplant swimming in gazpacho. Very cute and cozy atmosphere in a tucked away Gothic quarter location makes it look... More

I will start with the positive, the food was average. That's it. Now on to the rest or of Catalonian culinary catastrophe. We arrived and asked for a table - 5 of us so a fairly sizeable bill. The gentleman said 10 mins but I will be over to take your drinks and we were shown to our table. All... More

I was recommended this restaurant from an acquaintance and wasn't quite sure what was in store. We took a taxi there, and thank God we did because I'm not sure we would've made our reservations looking for it! The food was quite good as was the wine. Although, I do have to admit that it was overshadowed by some of... More

Was really looking forward to dinner at Pla but left feeling rather disappointed. It didnt start well - my wife and I arrived at the time of our reservation and were left standing at the bar for well over 6-7 minutes without anyone speaking to us to either take us to our table or take a drink order at the...
