The beautiful views, exceptionally attentive staff and creative menu made our dining experience a memorable one. The food itself was not exceptional, but quite good, and we found the starters to be more pleasing than the main dishes. The view is definitely the main attraction.

Nice city view from the Olympic mountain. The food it self is nice and the waiters as well, however it's a shame that they are not educated waiters. I.e. Got wrong food twice - however it's worth it because of the spectacular view

El Xalet's selling point, it seems, is the view it offers its clientele. The outside dining area has a panoramic view of Barcelona. Their menu is extensive but prices are a bit steep, especially since the quality of food is just okay. The service though...More

El Xalet de Montjuïc is pure luxury because of its ambiance and fantastic views. Stunning location surrounded by Joan Brossa of Montjuïc’s gardens. The best of its cuisine the careful selection of the raw materials to créate truly exquisite dishes. Its exquisite décor makes El Xalet de Montjuïc combines a warm style with modern and elegant touches. Worthy of mention is its large panoramic terrace and revolving dining room from where spectacular views of the city can be taken in, together with private lounges. Mediterranean and Catalan cooking with highly personal touches, although always respecting the traditional flavours and fresh produce.
