It's necessary to make a reservation, and there is two options for dinner 7:30 and 10:30 pm. The big menu is a complete and assorted choice. Local fish, met, vegetables and mushrooms cooked as Japanese style. All dishes are surprising and delicious. The best: the manners of staff and all the flavours.

We stayed at the Hotel Casa Camper which is located next to this restaurant so it was on our list of things to do, to actually dine here. We didn't book but went for an early session at 7.30pm. The food is asian flavours served in tapas style. We shared about 6 dishes between us and then two desserts as... More

We visited at lunch time and sat in their outside terrace area. It was very comfy. It had heaters if you needed them. You do feel a little on show as it is on a busy side street. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Very friendly staff. The menu was exciting and it was hard to narrow down to... More

For a unique tapas experience, head over to Dos Palillos, a Japanese inspired tapas bar. Our favorites were the toro sashimi, the smoked soy ice cream, the cuttlefish ceviche with caviar, the eel temaki and their version of Peking duck. Loved it so much we had dinner there twice! They offer a tasting menu but we opted to order ala... More

Michelin Star Restaurant. Asian dishes served in the Spanish tapas style. Exiting foods, frendly place, cool staff... The food was made in front of the guests. Its hard to notice the restaurant's entrance from the street.

Called for reservation at 1830 for a table at 2030 the same day. Upon arrival we had a private room. The waitress (Laura) was really good and explained the concept. We choose menu dos papillons which was a tasting menu of 17 dishes. These dishes were just wonderful and perfectly balanced. I would definitely recommend Dos Palillos!

This restaurant with an apparent old-fashioned-bar decoration, serves delicious creative tapas at the back, where there is a big counter around the cooking space: the chefs cook inside, the customers eat and look around. The quality of the food is very high, with small dishes inspired in the Mediterranean and Far East cuisine, a sort of merge of both cuisines... More

I came for lunch since it is hard to get a reservation for dinner at one day's notice. In fact it turned out to be much better at lunch time, you can do a la carte without a big crowd and a long wait between dishes. I had a number of small dishes. shrimps in fish net was an interesting... More

I read quite a few reviews of this restaurant before going, and I was a bit sceptical, since many reviews claimed the food was extremely weird, service not good etc. But none of it was true! Greeting was friendly, seating amazing around the open kitchen. There were plenty of waiters so we never waited for attention, and they were super... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
