“Not to be Missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

By far the best meal we had in Barcelona, terrific service, food and ambience. Put it at the top of your list when planning a trip, just book ahead because it is very small and tables go fast. We were not an easy group for a fixed menu restaurant, several people with food allergies and/or picky palates, but the chef was amazing, every course better than the one before it and the service was impeccable. Absolutely great.

“Gastronomical food experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Reasons for going:
- great staff who loves their job. They gladly explain everything that you're being served.
- great dishes! This restaurant will put your senses to the test.
- try the surprise meny! The chef will definately suprise you. Fresh local food.

But:
- make reservations! The restaurant will nok accept walk-inns.
- use google maps to find this place. The streets changes names on every block, and the Tripadvisor map is not always correct. Get of the Metro stop "Diagonal" and walk from there.
- expect to pay 150€ for 2 people including drinks.

“expensive but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had booked our table a long time before and really looked forward to our meal. We were not disappointed, the food was spot on and the staff fantastic. The room is very small, but it added to the intimate atmosphere of the place.We had the surprise menu with wine. The food was stunning, especially the soup with foie gras...Will be back

“Yummy and worth the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

I visited Con Gracia with a friend of mine who was celebrating his birthday. When i made the reservation through the online portal i mentioned that it was for a birthday dinner. when we arrived, the greeting we received from the staff was warm and friendly but not over the top. I had a gin tonic to start which was very strong and very well made. we decided to have the surprise menu and to get the wine pairing with it. I have to agree 100% that the wine pairings were bang on and complemented the food very well. One of the people serving us was one of the owners and he gave us lots of info on the wines and also what stores to go to in Barcelona to buy wine. The atmosphere is intimate and lovely and we even got a few glasses of wine for free. All in all a great dining experience and wonderful food!

“This was the best dining experience I have ever had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Myself and my boyfriend went to this restaurant on the back of tripadvisor reviews and I can truely say we weren't disappointed. A little bit difficult to find but persevere. They only take one seating a night which means you can really sit back and enjoy your night without the feeling of being rushed. The menu is based on a tasting menu with 7 courses to look forward to, I also chose to take the wine tasting where the owner suggests a glass of wine which compliments the dish. You let them know at the start of the evening anything you cant/wont eat and the chef will work the 'surprise' menu around you. Yes it was a bit expensive but genuinely it was worth it, extremely romantic too. Please try!
