“Magnificent Magnolies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

The restaurant had been closed for redecoration and we went on its reopening night. It got quite busy as the evening wore on but we only booked our table that afternoon.

They only had menus in Catalan, but our waiter explained every course to us in Spanish.

There are two degustacion menus: one at 42 euro and the other 68. Our choice, the smaller of the two, consisted of about 10 small courses, all immaculately presented and some with a certain amount of wit (I won't spoil the surprise!) which included a Japanese gyoza, cauliflower and anchovy teaser, chicken amuse bouche and various other delights.

The service was very good and the place was absolutely immaculate, being located in a beautiful detached white building dating from 1928 and redecorated in neutral tones with a dark wooden floor. My only criticism is that the lighting was very bright - perfect for seeing the exquisite food before you but not if you want to gaze into the eyes of your beloved.
