This is the second time we visited the restauran. First visit was in 2015 and we remembered having a very excellent dinner. This time around the quality of the menu was again very good. We had the Mackerel for starter, and 65C egg with mushrooms, and for main the Seaweed and prawn risoto, and the Iberian pork. Taste wise they... More

I've visited Pla restaurant many times over the years. I came back again this March and again it didn't disappoint! The food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection and the service was superb and I felt like a Queen being looked after by the staff especially as a lone female traveller. At the end of the meal the restaurant... More

Every dish was wonderful, from the amuse bouche to the dessert. Would recommend for a special meal with inventive taste combinations - it was bit pricey, but worth it for a very special experience.

Pla was recommended to me by Barcelona Cooking (great cooking class I took!). I thought I would check it out as it was close to where the cooking class was hosted on La Rambla. I was so happy I did! I was treated to excellent and attentive service alongside some incredible food. The ingredients were fresh, beautifully ripened, and local... More

We had reservations for 8PM, so we knew the restaurant would be relatively quiet at first. As the night wore on, the place was filled to capacity. The atmosphere is chic, modern, inviting. A continuous roll of photos were projected over the restaurants large logo on the main wall provided an ever changing art exhibit. The waiter came to our... More

We often recommend Pla and after 3 or 4 visits have never been disappointed. The ingredients are excellent quality and varied, some are wonderfully imaginative. Portions are small but wonderfully formed. We've done the tasting menu and wine in the past and this was fabulous. Prices are high, reflecting the quality of the ingredients and skill of the Irish chef.... More

Our walking tour guide recommended this restaurant in the Gothic Quarter, otherwise we probably wouldn't have found it. Food was good. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere. More expensive than many.

My husband and I are always going back to Pla for our anniversary. We celebrated our first there, and we loved it! That was already some years ago and the experience just gets better every year. The ambience is very quiet, dark atmosphere, nice decoration, and the super attentive staff. The chef's dishes are amazing, very tasty with a lot... More
