Amazing place. Food was good for the price. I ate some tapas, a burger and a very good dessert! Nice choice!

I've been there a couple times to enjoy their lunch menu. Surprisingly the menu is cheaper than that of other similar restaurants in the area so I can say food was better than expected. You won't find anything revolutionary here but their dishes are tasty, well taken care of and beautifully presented. They've got a small inner terrace which is... More

The place looks a bit hidden, but inside it is quite big. We went early in the evening, and it was quiet, but it got busy later on, nevertheless it was not too noisy. The atmosphere is really nice between romantic and modern. The menu at night was also good for €20,95. I will certainly come back.

Highly recommend! House sangria was delicious, and the food had some creative twists on typical tapas. Staff was very friendly! Place was busy, if you don't want to wait come on the early side.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as a favourite by locals and we discovered why. Had to keep going back as the prices were fair and the food was excellent! Gets very busy quickly at lunch and dinner. Opens for dinner at 8:30'p.m. and there is a line outside at about 8:15. The daily special is the best value which included... More

Mediterranean cuisine. Service staff distracted: we would like to order a wine, the waiter took forever to come back to us. Food is good, average. The atmosphere is good too. Nothing important to say.

Recently ate here with a large group of young people while chaperoning a trip to Spain with work. The food was AMAZING in all three courses. The lightly breaded and fried goat's cheese with the salad made my evening! Dinner was amazing with some sort of beef and onions concoction served with veggies and gravy. Dessert was some chocolate ice... More

Clearly busy with locals and not too bothered about a couple of extra foreigners. The food was, in principle, good although one dish was on the cool side. Annoyingly waiters circulated rather than being table specific so, for example, we had to tell three of them that we'd order pudding once we'd finished our wine. On looking at my credit... More

Balthazar is a modern restaurant located in the centre of Barcelona and it is in the Andilana Group, a group with some bar/restaurants/hotels especially in Barcelona and Catalonia. Here we ate a daily menu with 2 or 3 dishes to choose. I tasted macaroni (for me they had too much oil) as first dish, breaded fish with vegetables (normal) as... More

Balthazar in Barcelona is a very standard mid tier restaurant. It probably punches a little above it's weight and one can be fooled by the impressive decor and ambience, but you've come to eat after all and the food was average. Five of us dined there and we all had starters and main courses, no deserts. The starters were all... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
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.
