The food was very good, but the service was a bit lacking and definitely very stiff! Came here for dinner one night due to the 2 Michelin star rating and several friends recommendation. We were seated right away and given menus to review. There were 2 set dinners that we could choose from, BUT we were NOT allowed to each... More

had the 16 course tasting menu and it's definitely one of the best meals i've had in my life... don't think about it, just book a table and go! worth every penny... and get the matching wines with each course, because they come up with some truly amazing matches.

Obviously, we were quite expecting this to be amazing (considering the restaurant has a Michelin star and the prices are very high...) We were right. The sommelier service was impeccable, as was the quality of the food. You must be a seafood liver though! If you have the opportunity, I really recommend going.

Unique tasting experience. Some parts of dishes (like fossilised urchin) and part of the paired wines more interesting than good. Still, a very nice evening.

Top notch place, absolutely unexpected journey through each amazing course. Highly recommend everyone to visit. They were also very adaptable to allergy / food requirements without feeling left out. A++, will be sending friends and family here for sure! Thanks again ABaC for an amazing anniversary celebration.

Thank Aaanks

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.
