I want to make clear that the food is excellent. In my opinion, thought, since Jordi Cruz is also a TV star and the restaurant is in an expensive neighborhood in barcelona, the restaurant is slightly overpriced. When you go in one of this restaurants,...More

We had dinner at the Abac restaurant, on the 19th of December. When we arrived, we found the closed gate and no one to welcome us. After finally ringing twice, we had the door opened and had to find our way through the quite beautiful...More

One of the best places we've been. Beautiful and elegant. Incredible service, amazing and inventive menu. Simply great ! We had the opportunity to meet the chef that's almost a star in spain and he showed us his kitchen.

We visited ABaC restaurant the third time now and we can only repeat what we have written here before: It is truly an outstanding experience in every aspect. It is an innovative cuisine. The grand ABaC tasting menu (16 dishes) challenges all of our senses....More

We had the 16 course chef tasting menu with wine pairings and added an extra course of cheese. Ended the 4 1/2 hour meal with a bottle of 1998 D'Yquem. HANDS DOWN, THE BEST MEAL I HAVE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE.

We are longtime San Francisco residents, with family ties to Manhattan, therefore completely spoiled and tough to please. ABaC is food poetry - truly extraordinary. Our criteria for serious cuisine is not only excellent taste but that it is unique (like great poetry). We give...More

I'd give it a miss if I were you. The chef who created the original ABaC now has his own place in Barcelona. It is called Celeri and I think you will find it a much more rewarding experience. His ethos is based on pleasing... More

Description
Our attentive yet friendly service create a professional but relaxed atmosphere, which makes ABaC holder of 3 *** Michelin. In 2000 ABaC Restaurant opened its doors in his first location, Carrer 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, a
