Business dinner. Choice menu, among them oysters, sashimi, unbelievable tomato tartar I have not tried before anywhere. Is it one of the best places in Barcelona to try sea food? Probably yes. Good - i.e. accurate - choice of wine. Professional service where you have a feeling that what is offered is really the best (not the most expensive). Prices... More

This is my 3rd time to Kru. Each time I'm happy with the quality of food well most of what I ordered at least In terms of ambience, the restaurant lends a certain elegance and class while not opulent or fine dining setting, does gives diners a pretty modern environment to enjoy the food. Servers pretty attentive though at times... More

This is a place where the chauffeur driven elite of Barcelona elite will dine out on corporate accounts. They offer a very wide variety of seafood dishes and fish. Food was OK but nothing amazing. Seafood soup tasted peculiar. Grilled shrimp were a bit floury. Grilled turbot was good, but no side dishes, at 48 euro. Cheese plate at 33... More

I was truly disappointed by this place, the food was bland, the service just not up to par with the place, and the bill very expensive.

I will start with a Professional staff thats working there. Just 101% professional. Food that we had was like it was ment for Gods. Apetizer, soup, main course... Desert was from other world. Some chocolate explosion. And wine... I think the name was Dido, and it was just brilliant!!

Rias de Galicia is an excellent seafood restaurant offering a wide range of shells, lobster, oysters and other seafood. The staff is very friendly It is a bit pricey for Barcelona though

This could be one of the finest fish restaurants on earth! This is beyond anything that you could imagine in terms of preparation and variety. Let the waiter guide you and just sit back and enjoy. Extensive wine list of Spanish varieties. Beautiful accommodations. You cannot go wrong.

Arrived earlier in the day and were tired so tried it early. Didn't realize the timing of the dinner crowds and the restaurant didn't open until 8pm and waiter didn't really show up to table until about 8:30. He was great though and with the order of a bottle of Rioja and some initial plates he got inventive with recommendations.... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
