Description: In the heart of Barcelona you will find Mayura, serving a fusion of Indian & Mediterranean food and exquisite cocktails in a tranquil and intimate space. Decorated with natural elements like silk, water, bamboo, slate & wood, the serene setting is colourfully furnished in a contemporary colonial style, making one feel like they are sitting in the Indian sub-continent. Funky music, Indian & international cocktails and old black & white Bollywood movies make it an ideal place to lunch, dine or have a drink at any hour of the day. On weekdays Mayura serves a fixed price lunch. Healthy, fresh & delicious, chef Jesus creates a daily menu consisting of Catalan, Mediterranean & Indian dishes. During the evenings Mayura features an ‘a la carte’ menu. Choose from a variety of tapas, vegetarian, main courses & tasting platters. Mayura is owned by Rajnish Kapoor and his wife Mayura Kutappa. Having spent a lot of time travelling, discovering, discussing & experimenting with food, they left New York and the internet company he was running to open a small restaurant in Ibiza, Spain. After two successful years and the birth of their son Brahm they moved to Barcelona. Over the past 12 years they have shared their passion for movies, music, design and food; all of which they decided to bring together at Mayura which they opened in April 2006.

“Lovely looking, average food, poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

The place is beautiful, very nice atmosphere and enjoyed eating at the bar with a mini water fountain trickling next to me. The food was average for Indian food. The service was not the best, the staff seemed like they didnt want to be there and were not attentive.

“Lousy service spoilt the good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Went with lot of expectation with ex ms india opening an indian restaurant in ole barcelona..to be greeted by one of the all time surly spanish stewardess u could ever find !!! Packed off to the back of the restaurant on 11-6-13 at 8.30 pm despite front of the restaurant being free...long wait to order..nans accompanying starters..dingy environ..unco-operative waiters violated the reasonably good indian food (as distinct from the bangla-pak trash masquerading as indian food)...will i go there again ..no way unless smt. mayura wakes up and has some friendly hopefully indian waiters and a warm welcome ambience ..maybe these folks can learn from Rangoli

“Good quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Having tried very good Indian restaurants in London, Mumbai and Bangalore. I am usually disappointed when I have tried other Indian restaurants in other locations. However foodwise this was a nice change with all the food being of good quality and fresh. The food was not as spiced for my preference but they do provide a nice green chilli mix to up the heat to your liking. The only downside was the I had reserved a table for 6 which was only set for four. Then waited 15-20 mins before we promted the waitress for drinks. At this time 8.30 it was not busy so no apparent reason for the delay. I suggest this maybe just one waitress having a bad day because as the meal progressed the other staff were fine.
We ordered a mix of starters, mains, deserts and some wine and beer and cost was circa €25pp
