We tried the tasting menu that turned out to be delicious! The restaurant is a little off the town's traditional scenery because it has a modern environment, very clean and clear as well as the creative menu, which is very good, by the way. The staff is very attentive and polite! We had such a great experience that one of... More

Amazing food and service. The food (all of it) had amazing presentation and you could taste all the ingredients in each meal/entree. I would recomend it for any romantic or private dinners

This is a beautiful, modern house up in that Cabrils hills where you can savour very good, creative dishes, exceptionally well presented. Wine list could be a bit better and ambience is somewhat cold, worn out. Still, a good choice.

If this place was in our native London or New York, you'd be paying triple for it and it would still be great value. We had the full tasting menu for an impossibly low price of 44 euros. Six or seven courses, each with excellent ingredients. Just the right amount of innovation on traditional dishes: interesting but not pretentious unlike... More

A huge disappointment. Having worked at their restaurants, the chef claims to replicate the unique style of cooking greats such as Ferran Adrià, Juan M. Arzak or the Roca brothers, but it gets nowhere near it. Oh, normally I do not give a damn about it, but the decoration is just ugly.

A colleague treated me to what was a fantastic meal cooked by Albert. It was amazing because not only did it taste fantastic it looked like a piece of art. I would highly recommend a visit.

This restaurant is one of our favorite not least because we're living just 10 min walking away. The young cook Albert has won awards for best cook of the year, etc. His sister is the maitre and very attentive. We always choose one of the 2-3 menus. However, someone who doesn't like inventive cuisine might be disappointed.

Last night I went to this hidden jewel called Axol restaurant. Is about 30 min from Barcelona, but the trip is truly worthy. We went recommended from some friends. The head chef Albert is fantastic. Has 2 tasting menus, one for 30€ and the other for 40€. My girlfriend was full even before starting the menus with a selection of... More
