Decent restaurant with decent food. I went here on night when I got tired of Tapas. Their set menu allows you to choose a couple things off their menu for a multi course dinner (1 started, 1 meat dish, 1 vegetable dish, bread or rice, and a dessert). Very accommodating and reasonable menu. The dishes was all pretty good, and... More

We went to this one simply out of laziness, but I have to say that despite all the positive reviews, as an Indian, my quest for a really good Indian restaurant in Barcelona shall have to continue. We opted for the dinner set menu and the chicken was tender enough, but nothing in the food made it stand out. I... More

We visited this restuarant as it was closer to our hotel. When we reached at 8pm, the scheduled time it opens, the shutters were down. After waiting 10 minutes, someone finally showed up to open it. Did not get a friendly warm reception. The staff appeared to me that they were very indifferent and not helpful. We ordered vegetrian dishes... More

I ordered the food today at 915pm and was told it will be delivered in half hour. After calling them repeatedly at 10:50 PM I was told that it will not be possible for them to deliver. And they did not bother to inform us inspite of our telling them that we are ordering this for our kids. Now I... More

We were there in the evening to have some small snacks as we already had too much in the afternoon. First we ordered the vegetable platter.

I went for dinner with a friend, we were attended to very quickly. We selected some starters and main courses, of which there was a considerable amount, value for money in my opinion. I think the decoration may be in need of attention, a mix of objects. We were not there when there was any dancing so I cannot comment... More

We came for its lunch menu, so we can't say a word about the shows that other reviewers have mentioned here. For 9.95 € it was a fair deal. Nothing special, but If you're hungry and nearby, and you enjoy Indian food, its lunch menu will do the trick for an average price. Take into account that they only serve... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
