“It doesn't get better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful building on the Diagonal, but the interior was very intimate. The service is a model for other restaurants; very personal and they totally accommodate English speaking patrons. The food is great. I'm from NYC and have high standards. The restaurant exceeds all expectations even though it is a bit pricey.

“Really?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

For a Michelin star rated eatery I was disappointed by th food here. Service and atmosphere were terrific, but we were looking for a memorable meal on our last night in Spain. While the place was memorable (the restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of a Gaudi inspired building) the food, sadly was not memorable.

“The Best Of Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Our dining experience began with a host opening our taxi door and guiding us to the restaurant entrance. Every single facet of the ambience, decor, service and food was incomparable. On my next trip to Barcelona La Dama will be one of my first stops.

“Updated Traditional Elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Our concierge recommended La Dama when we asked for a special evening. We arrived at 9 on a Friday evening. The building is an important turn of the century landmark. The room retains its original elegance and formality. Staff at attention, but very very warm and welcoming. They make you feel like you are in a private home. The menu consists of many Catalan classics, however every dish has been updated. Just the best. Fois gras to die for (better than most Paris restaurants). Best gazpacho ever. The most extensive wine list with lots of bottles under 50E. The traditional menu of four courses is 69E and was a delight. This is for those who enjoy "fine dining" and the best service. This is at the top of our list for Barcelona .

“1st Year Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This restaurant was a wonderful experience that made our 1st anniversary a real treat. The staff was very attentive and kind. We have already recommended this restaurant to friends and the next time we are in Barcelona, we plan to return. It was a truly memorable and beautiful night.
