“'Superb'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We booked a meal at Mon as a result of reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant is small and modern with a bright interior, good mood lighting and great background music, all of which make for a great atmosphere. The hostess (owner) is charming and has apparently been running Mon with her husband (the chef) since last year. We were offered a 'tasting' menu and opted for the large version which offered 8 courses, and were given the opportunity to say if we had any allergies or simply didn't like something. The food was an absolute gastronomic delight with a variety of dishes, some of which we wouldn't necessarily have chosen from a menu but which turned out to be a revelation! Each course was beautifully presented with a full explanation of the component parts, some ingredients originating locally in Spain or from the owners native south america. From the spring salad, gazpacho soup with a twist, cannelloni with mushrooms and truffle and duck with cherries to the grand finale of minute deserts, every mouthful was absolutely divine. We can not rate this restaurant highly enough. Our reservation was a celebration for our sons 21st birthday and it proved to be a fantastic evening.

“Wonderful creative food without crazy crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We came here based on the Trip advisor high rating and were not disappointed. The food was creative in a modern space without many people...It really was affordable for prix fixe night menu (17.50 €) and wine. . ..my wife had the fish of the day with shrimp shells and soggy wheat while i had the rumsteak with applesauce potatoes and cinnamon sauce. All delicious and creatively presented... . The total bill was 57.70 € for two people (3 courses and wine and water) very affordable and delicious!

“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Saw good reviews for this restaurant on TripAdvisor so went along hoping for a good eating experience and were not disappointed. The charming waitress turned out to be Vanessa the owner who opened 'My' restaurant less than a year ago with her husband as chef. They specialize in typical Catalan dishes. We had the set menu which included 3 courses plus a refreshing drink between courses and some limoncello. It was all delicious and at 22 euro each we thought terrific value. A little off the beaten track but well worth tracking down.
