“Good food with a spectacular view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Second time here and went back for the stunning view of the city as sun sets. Main course was excellent although waiter more keen to sell us dessert from trolley than a la carte menu.

“Great View, Nice Food, Nice Service, Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

if you want to impress someone for dinner with a stunning view over Barcelona then look no further. The food won't let you down as it's well prepared and presented. The staff are very attentive and they are trying to make it a high dinning experience to go with the view but thankfully they are not over fussy and do leave you to enjoy the food and view. However, the ultimate feeling is that you are paying for the view.

“To expensive for a view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Nice view and place.
To expensive for to little. And then the food was nothing to write about.
The service was to ambitious.
Got charged for bread. Did not get any. Did not get all the money back for "the bread"
The wine was fine.
Left the restaurant feeling unhappy :(

“Beautiful view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This restaurant has a stunning view over Barcelona, but book a table on the terracce, or wait till a day they have available tables on the terracce. The view from the inside of the restaurant is nothing compare to the one on the terracce. The food is ok, and the price is high - you pay for the view. The service is great, and they are good sellers!

“Go only for the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Had a lunch overlooking he city here. The view was fantastic, but available by cable car as well. The food did not work. Had one fist croquettes that reminded me of tater tots that were dry and over cooked. Then my sole arrived on a tray which was whisked away to properly prepare it for "Madame". Don't know ho did the boning, but they missed about 30! Would have better done this myself as it would have been warmer but they try to make up or so so food with excessive ceremony.
