Loved the food and the tranquility of the Teraza La Isabela, just a stones through from the hustle and bustle of La Rambla.

“Poor service, uninspiring”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We were told this was 'the' place to dine on Las Ramblas, hence booked a room at the hotel with the intention of spending the evening at this restaurant/lounge. Our travel agent secured us a reservation, 2 months out, only to be told upon arrival that they did not have it and there weren't any tables. Hello...there were only a few tables filled and those were filled by people still in bathing suits that had obviously been lounging/drinking by the pool all day!!! We were very dressed up, thinking (mistakenly) that this was the happening place. I proceeded to submit to the host my printed email confirmation for our reservation. The host seemed put off by this, but took us to a table. The food was uninspiring and over priced. There was zero atmosphere and actually felt silly seated next to those in bathing attire that had clearly been drinking/lounging by the pool all day. Pool was beautiful as was view, but not worth the visit when there are so many more wonderful places to visit in Barcelona!!

“Rooftop view of Barcelona”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Super rooftop view of Barcelona.
Food was tasty but service slow and being seated in lounge chairs and sofas with one very large cocktail table between us made it difficult to actually eat and carry on a conversation.

Adding to the confusion were the two tables across from us where couples were getting very comfortable with each in front of the entire restaurant (tourists! :).

Think twice before bringing any children to this place.
