This was a great restaurant to splurge on. While on vacation on a budget, this restaurant could not be achieved every night, but the night we decided to splurge, made it clear the prices were worth it. It ended up being about €50 a person,...More

Together with friends on a Sunday evening this was quiet (also due to a Barca game going on at 21:00) but the food was really good and the service was pleasant and helpful.

Food was reasonable. Nothing more. During our dinner we asked to cancel one dish. They said ok and later insisted we’d pay for it. 40 EUR for rice and vegetables. Much better and friendlier choices around

Why are there such mixed reviews of this restaurant? We are quite fussy (not so much about decor but def about cuisine) and this was just great. We had something called veal gizzards in a rich port sauce, and they were delicious, tender, just great....More

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

I think so because downstairs the restaurant has a big room for events. l’m not sure if they could accommodate 100 people but the room is quite big. Anyway, you can call and ask, they are super friendly.
