Description: The upstairs of Rias de Galicia becomes a "sea" of little dishes, more casual, more fun, more imaginative, and more economical. A modern setting, with a kitchen bar where chefs prepare many dishes in front of customers. Two Rías in one. The menu has two parts. The main one based on elaborations without fire, is an anthem to the "product". And a second one where we discover the fire.

“Raw and Cooked Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

What a find thanks to the hotel concierge at The Olha and accidentally stumbling across it, this is part of Ferran Adria's new restaurants in Barcelona. It sits above Rias de Galicia one of the finest up market fish restaurants in the City and next to Casa de Tapas Canota, all seem to be linked to Ferran. The kitchen serves the finest raw fish and meat you will ever find, the food is magnificently presented and a feast to the eyes. We also had one cooked dish which was a whole baby turbot cooked in such a way that you could eat every part of it quite amazing. I highly recommend this establishment it cost with a good bottle of wine 140 euros which is extraordinarily well priced.

“Well-Balanced Combination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

The service was attentive and they had time for both food suggestions and wine pairing with the food. The portions in desgustasion menu were imaginative and very tasty. The waiter took good care of us even though he had quite a few others to cater at the same time. The local sparkling wine cava was suggested and also a good choice for a long lasting late lunch. Excellent combination.

“fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We ended up here after a failed attempt to walk into Pakta without a reservation. The host kindly pointed us next door. Espai kru is upstairs and slightly more casual than the downstairs seafood restaurant. We had delicious cocktails and a handful of yummy small plates. We had some trouble communicating with the waiter, but ended up liking everything we got. This would be a good place to go with a group so you can try several dishes.
