This restaurant is phenomenal. It really is one of the only restaurants I have been to in the world where every dish within the degustation menu was absolutely perfect. Really visit this place if you enjoy Japanese elements within a Spanish setting. Thank you for a great night.

My third visit spanned along 8 years. All them great and, happily, showing that they change the offer quite a lot as my last one, the second, was not so long ago. Only one plate from the present menu was already back then. Good! Make sure you get the right place, I mean: the bar if you want to see... More

This review is very late as I lost the card with the restaurant's name on it; however, I've now found it so here's my review. I went here with my other half and we both agree that it's the best restaurant we have ever been to......and between us we've been to a lot! The tasting menu is a must. Every... More

We came here our last night in Barcelona and had a blast!! The tasting dinner is so enjoyable and we always love sitting and being able to see the chefs cook! You could tell all of the chefs here love their jobs, and it made the experience much more enjoyable. All of the food was delicious and creative, we would... More

This is a booking you have to make months in advance because it's so "good". A chef that has worked next to Albert and Ferran for 10 years (as the website boasts) was a completely lacking in every sense of the Michelin star quality When we walked in for our 7.30 booking we were greeted,seated and explained how it worked....

Just finished a dining experience like no other. Incredible tasting menu- Japanese tapas with twists Service by the chefs themselves was professional, friendly and fun. All so knowledgeable and motivated. Best dining experience in the region so far, including Tue Michelin stars. This is a MUST visit

Ok, I would not be over-exagerating when I say that word was said over 20 times by each member of the group of 20 that were dining that evening during the chef tasting menu. You have 2 options of how many courses at 85 or 95 euro per person. My husband and I opted for the Dos Palillos Festival at... More

This was a very interesting experience for us. It was so much fun being able to see the cooks at work from where we were sitting, and the food was unlike anything we had ever had before. As there was a set menu, there were dishes we loved and some that we didn't like as much, but over-all the food... More

Dos Palillos is a real find. Chef Albert Raurich was trained for 10 years in former El Bulli. This little gem has only a few places grouped around a small kitchen area in teppanyaki style or located outside in a small courtyard. The food follows a fusion kitchen combining Spanish tapas and Asian gastronomy. Make sure you make your reservation... 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.
