“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Went there in December 2012, and had a great experience, the food was great, the prices were low taking in consideration the quality of the food and how good the restaurant looked and made you feel.
Had the Nebraska beef steak the first time i went there and the Nebraska beef burger the second time, both tasted great, nothing to complain about, plus as said before, the prices were very low.
The service could've been better, but i'm sure the management will work on it.

“Amazing location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The Abrassame can be found at the top of the Arenas de Barcelona, next to Placa d'Espanya. You have to pay a small amount to go up the lift to the top, but you get a great view towards the Magic Fountain and Avenida Maria Cristina. The views over Barcelona from the top are fabulous. Worth going up there just for that and to take some nice pictures.
There are restaurants around the whole perimeter. We walked round a couple of times, looking at the menus, but were struck stright away by the contemporary, funky decor of The Abrassame in black and white with splashes of red. The food was excellent too. We opted for a large steak for 2, although they seem to specialise in fish dishes. It isn't a cheap option to eat here, but the food and location are great. A good choice for a romantic dinner....

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We had an early dinner here on our first night in Barcelona. The restaurant is on the top terrace of the Arena; the building has escalators and elevators so getting there isn't a problem. The view was excellent from the terrace but the terrace permits smoking so we opted for a table inside where smoking was not permitted. The decor was modern, very clean lines and comfortable. We were the only patrons inside that early in the evening. Seafood was in glass fronted cases on ice and looked fresh.

My husband had a beer and I ordered the 1/2 pitcher of Sangria which was made to order and very good. We began with tapas -- croquetas jamon and bruscheta -- both hot, fresh, and tasty. We both ordered paella, one meat and the other lobster. The servings were very hot and huge -- too much to finish. As other reviews have noted, it is a little expensive, but we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the view. Our waitress was helpful but not always quick to come to our table when we needed something.

“Great terrace!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

We've gone to this restaurant a day that it was cold and we eated at the climatised terrace, if you have the opportunity try to stay outside, I think it's less noisy.

The ambient was warm and amicable, the waiter was ok, she misses a bit of professionality supplied being nice.

The meal was good, everything was well kooked, but in some plates -the salad- they can put more quantity. Excellent rice "paella".

Little things to improve, but good in general and good relation quality/price with the menu.

“Everything good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We had dinner here and we liked everything about the place. Nice location at the top of Arena with good view. Pleasant service. Delicious and nice served food. It was one of the best restaurant we visited in Barcelona. May be its expensive for every day but for romantic dinner or dinner with a good friend its OR. I can definitely recommend the place for these cases.
