We chose to get the tasting menu with the wine pairing. I will say that we walked out not completely satisfied. The take of the chef on the food is not so clear and sometimes you don't understand where the presentation and flavours want to take you. I do think eating in good restaurants is a journey, and this one... More

When in Spain eat like a Spaniard!! This restaurant was serving deconstructed food at exorbitant prices. If you want a good Spanish meal eat elsewhere.

We dined at Pla after a number of recommendations (locals and friends who had been as tourists). We decided to go for the tasting menu for 58 euro each and my husband also had the matching wines for an additional 20 euro. The ambiance is dark, moody (in a good way) and quite romantic. The service was excellent- the waiters... More

They tell you to get lost in the Gothic Quarter whist in Barcelona, but make sure you find this place. We visited Barcelona in January and booked Pla for a Saturday night. We enjoyed every second of our time in the restaurant. Classy meals were accompanied by professional service. Highly recommended.

We needed a last minute reservation and our hotel concierge recommended Pla. Was a great suggestion. It reminded me of traditional Spanish food with a modern twist. Daikon radish carpaccio - had to try it. One of the most unusual yet delicious dishes I've ever had. We had duck confit and the seaweed and prawn risotto. Both were creatively prepared,... More

Warm, intimate, cosy, it offers cuisine inspiredby the Mediterranean but without leaving outinfluences from other cultures.A young and carefree service and an innovative cuisine where,salads, meats, fish and vegetarian options make up a constantlychanging menu thus making it difficult for you to chooseyour favourite dish.
