Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

The upstairs of Rias de Galicia becomes a "sea" of little dishes, more casual, more fun, more imaginative, and more economical. A modern setting, with a kitchen bar where chefs prepare many dishes in front of customers. Two Rías in one. The menu has two parts. The main one based on elaborations without fire, is an anthem to the "product". And a second one where we discover the fire.

My review maybe slightly unfair in this case as I am vegetarian and Espai Kru specialises in raw food as the name implies. However, by Barcelona standards, it is quite expensive (100 euros + for two inc a bottle of bog standard cava) and at...More

We celebrated a birthday of my friend in the restaruant. The service, the quality of ingredients as well as the location of the venue was excellent. We tried oysters from france and galicia, prawns, sashimi and other dishes. All was of the highest quality.

Espai Kru is a Japanese sashimi concept restaurant with Galician touch and management. All is perfect: even trying to be critical, you find hardly something to point out.
