My husband and I decided to go to Catalunya for a celebration after reading so much about it a. The restaurant is beautiful with a magnificent view of the Singapore skyline. We were really looking forward to our dinner. If you were to ask , "How do you find it", the answer is "I couldn't". Yes, its Tapas but the portions were just too small. We ordered an octupus casserole dish ( could not remember the name), the sauce was beautiful, smooth and rich in flavour but $20 or was it $24, there were only 4 tiny pieces of octopus in it, half the size of my thumb. Well its the starter, so we looked forward to our seafood paella. The waiter brought to our table two expresso cups, each cup was half filled with some sort of rice crispies and he proceeded to pour a broth into the espresso cups. The rice soaked up the essence of the broth which is a concentration of seafood. And that was all the essence of the paella, all condensed into half an expresso cup. As for the service, despite a restaurant filled with so many wait staff, the service was slow and unattentive. I felt that if the waiter who took our order has shown some enthusiasm and passion in explaining the dishes ( as the culinary team is after all of El Bulli and what they created there is a true work of art) , we would not have been so disappointed especially with the seafood paella as we were expecting the paella as served in the pan with actual seafood and rice. After 5 dishes, we decided even if we ordered more food, we would still be hungry and unsatisfied so we cut short our evening and went for a hearty burger down at Fullerton one.
