“Nice decor but bad experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

The decor is nice, but my experience there was awful. Also the music doesn't match with the style of the place.

They brought the first dishes exactly 1 hour after we had ordered. And they forgot to bring two dishes, and we had to complain.

And after complaining, they brought one of the dishes and when my friend who ordered the food wasn't on the table,the waiter said "that was my friend mistake because that she didn't ordered it". Which was a lie because I heard my friend ordering the food, and it was super not-nice that the waiter blamed my friend for his own fault.

The food was ok though, nothing really special.

This whole experience was a shame and that's really sad, because there was a very good dishes on the menu, and when we first got in we thought we would like to come back in the future, but after all this, we don't think about it anymore.

Before hand, The Benedict team would like to thank you for coming to our restaurant and for expressing your opinion through tripadvisor that without a doubt will help us improve not only our customer service but as a restaurant overall.
As you may know all beginnings can be a little rough at first; luckily The Benedict team is overcoming hindrances and is improving day by day. Unfortunately for you, that Sunday you came we had an unexpected problem with one of our kitchen staff that was ill, hence, we only had one cook and that created a little bit of a turmoil.
In Benedict Bcn client satisfaction it´s a priority, and as we have seen through out our clientele, it seems that we are heading the right way. It would be a pleasure for us to serve you once again and to make sure you leave with a different opinion about us and a genuine smile knowing that you had your moneys worth.
Our most sincere apologies for any problems you might have had in our restaurant, and as we have mentioned, we would love for you to change your opinion about us.

Best Regards

“Excellent english breakfast”

What an unusual place - very ornate! Service was excellent and good place to eat eggs in hollandaise sauce, pancakes, english breakfast. Medium price bracket, but you get what you pay for.

“Amazing Service and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

In Barcelona I sometimes go to bars and restaurants and customer service is not great. Lots of places in Barcelona do not have the ethic of "putting the customer first"

However, at Benedict the service is exceptional and the staff cannot do enough for you. They make you feel really welcome, whether you are tourist or local. If you are a tourist then they speak very good English. You can tell that they really enjoy customer service. It is not just a sales tactic.

At night it's great fun and they have yummy cocktails and nachos to snack on. The brunch is delicious and very well priced. I had an English breakfast and was impressed. All the ingredients were good quality. A great place for day and night! :)
