Pinhan was an exciting offer in the place of the cafe it replaced, bringing a fusion of turkish and spanish-european dishes to this great location in Turo Parc. But the concept stops there as unfortunately the six or seven tables are waited on by profoundly uninterested, lethargic staff and an even more uninterested owner.

We gave it several tries over the week, but this place can only serve as an example of how not to run a business. All of which would be OK if the food and drinks were anything to write home about; they are not. Portions are tiny, prices high and...service dreadful. Farewell Pinhan, time to allow someone more deserving to take your lovely place.

Dear 1C-1K,
Thank you. We appreciate your comment because it helps us to improve our service, so that all our customers have the best experience.
Our team's first priority is making feel our guests in their garden.
Pinhan is a small lovely place that can offer a lot of different food and beverages freshly prepared
above it's capacity in the middle of a hilarious park, Turo Park.
Our guests can enjoy the every minute of their visit without any hurry.
In Pinhan we use seasonal, fresh, healthy and organic ingredients, also we work with best producers of Barcelona like El Magnifico Coffee, Rooftop Smoke House, Paul Yellow Bakery, L´ obrador, Delacrem, Press&Reset, Cakeman,...
From this point of view our price policy is the great value for what our customers pay.
We'd love to see you in Pinhan again. Greetings!

I live in the area, I have to say that at the beginning I was so happy to find a new owner who runs this lovely place professionally. But now something has changed.

As a customer I really appreciate a good food and a good service, if both are excellent I am able to pay the right price. The last 3 visits to Pinham I was really disappointed, the service was incredible bad, they makes you wait a lot for your order and it's exactly the same if you want to pay and leave.

I don't know what is happening to Pinhan but my experience was terrible, expensive prices for a ridiculous dry and cold salmon with quinoa, a warm white wine and a very bad customer service.

Maybe it was an unexpected rush hour, hospitality is one of our core value, because of that most of our customers become regular after their first visit.
We appreciate your comment because it helps us to improve our service, so that all our customers have the best experience.

Horrendous service, rude staff, unnecessarily expensive menu, a total chaos. Makes you wonder where the famous Turkish hospitality is, given that the owner is Turkish. A total disappointment.

This is one of the cosiest places I've visited in Barcelona. It has a really rich menu from brunch to alcoholic beverages. Coffees, hot chocolate, teas are so nice but cheesecakes are amazing! If you are fan of Turkish breakfast you can find plenty of options. For whatever reason you drop by Parc Turo, you will see happy people sitting around this cafe's tables. Peace is in the air

I loved this place! It is located inside Parc Turo and it has a lovely atmosphere. It's cappuccino is one of the best in town! They also serve delicious food including their home-made pastry. Looking forward to trying their famous breakfast!
