Description: Restaurant created on the desire to offer a Swiss-styled service, with a local personality. The cuisine is international, though highly influenced by French and Italian cuisines; The key is the use of fresh local products in home-made dishes. One can chose from our selection of dishes or try out the tasting menu created by Chef. The restaurant is divided on two floors, one being ideal for groups up to aprox. 50 people.

“Great value, great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Relatively small place (seats approx 20 pax), located in tiny street. I was there for lunch, attracted by their lunch menu. Excellent value, fresh food, highly recommended!

“The exclusivity and quality feeling altogether!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is really a surprise for those who are lovers from a good cousine! Perfect service... A truly gourmet with a feeling of sofistication. That's definitely a worth-to-visit restaurant!

“Perfect last lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

We hadn't done the menu del dia until our last day at La Minerva, boyyyy it didn't disappoint! We got a three course meal, and for lunch, the bill only came to 26 euros! I was not only surprised by the quality of the food, but also by how friendly the staff was. The menu is constantly changing depending on what is in season, and the homemade deserts are fantabulous! The restaurant may be a little hard to find, but the TripAdvisor app shows it's location and address fairly well. We will be sure to eat here when we come back!

“A Swiss-themed restaurant in Catalunya serving kangaroo carpaccio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Swiss food is generally poor, Catalan food is generally good, so a Swiss-themed restaurant in Barcelona is a bit random. Guess it is unique. My scallops starter was lovely, the scallops were cooked perfectly. The bread and main were quite good. The service was good, got to try a couple of whites and ended up with a Menganito Verdejo, which was lovely.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Great food, great service, great music, great wine! Found this place through TripA for a last meal after 14 days in Barcelona, and it's definitely the best place we visited during our stay!
