food great, service appauling, no atmosphere, staff clearly want to be elsewhere! My daughter treated me to a special 60th birthday meal. I travelled from Australia and my daughter from London to eat in this restaurant. After paying in cash around $340 euro, by mistake paid 15 cents short. On leaving staff chased after my daughter to get the 15... More

I recently went to ABaC restaurant for my father’s 60th birthday, and I must say I was extremely disappointed with the level of service we received. First of all; staff were not attentive and looked unimpressed to be working, which made for an uncomfortable atmosphere. Dry ice was flicked onto me several times when the dessert was being made at... More

I am very disappointed with this hotel. I made a dinner reservation 4 weeks ago. We are staying at an excellent hotel in the middle of Barcelona, the Majestic, where we can walk to almost all of the tourist sites and the staff is terrific. As it was raining tonight, it took 30 minutes to get a taxi and 35... More

We were here with a group of our "foodie" friends on a recent trip to Barcelona. We eaten at many fine dining restaurants including The French Laundry and Le Bernadin. There were several service related issues that really damped our dining experience at this restaurant. My husband noted that several times the silverware was kind of thrown at the place... More

To quote a previous 1 star review: "I have eaten Michelin star food all over the world, and I know what I'm talking about"! No you don't!! The reviewer who wrote that clearly knew absolutely nothing about food or good service! Why would you want to steal their table decorations!? We asked for a signed menu, and they obliged. Jordi...

The overall experience was good, but considering that it's a 2 Michelin stars, we expected a bit more. The atmosphere was a bit lifeless and cold, no fresh flowers, not much to talk about, which is, I guess, intentional. We were welcomed on arrival and made an order for drinks, which we were hoping to get as soon as possible... More

This restaurant is located in a beautiful hotel. The 16-course tasting menu was impressive and the wine list offered very good prices for Spanish wines. Service was consistently good.

In 2000 ABaC Restaurant opened its doors in his first location, Carrer del Rec 79 in Barcelona. In May 2008 changed to his new address in Avenida Tibidabo, 1.

The gastronomy is the fundamental axis of the project. The restaurant awarded with 2** Michelin, and nominated by The Best Restaurant 2011 in Catalonia by the Catalan Academy of Gastronomy, can seat up to 56 diners. Located in the newly constructed pavilion in direct contact with the garden, the interior and the exterior are found through large windows.
It is a caprice of whites, in all tones. In a calm, neutral and elegant atmosphere, the sense of sophistication is shaped by the small details and the materials used, as well as a sophisticated combination of lights.
The kitchen of 200 m2 has been designed by Joaquim Casademont. It is a black container, in which stainless steel furniture takes all leadership, an effect that has been reinforced by the lighting, a route marked by leds serves as a guide and allows the guests to cross it.
Rooms for private events with a capacity of 20 to 60 diners respectively, complete its restoration facilities. The "Lounge Bar", which opens until 2.00 p.m. and where the music, light and color of the room subtly change;There is also an extensive cellar, offering near 1000 references, and from which you can select your perfect wine.
Chef Jordi Cruz and his team of young professionals develop a creative cusine of superb technique, based on the product and which meets both creativity and tradition. In addition, our attentive yet friendly service create a professional but relaxed atmosphere, which makes ABaC holder of 2** Michelin.
