Reviewed October 8, 2011

I have been to this restaurant 8-10 times in my life. It used to be a nice place to try a new wine and have a few tapas. However, in our penultimate visit we already felt that prices had gone up, while food quality was clearly not what used to be. This was confirmed in our most recent visit, which will definitely be the last. It is hard to explain such a change from good to bad. There has probably been a management change or they have not found the way to "navigate" through the crisis (increase prices and reduce quality does not seem to be the wisest of the options).

I should be "telling" that this is only the second English review in the past 2 years - but shouldn't be the last!

I went last week with a ex-pat "foodie" friend living in BCN. He has raved about the restaurant for years (having lived down the street until recently), so I finally went with him during a night of enthusiastic local dining. Tourists rarely come up this far into Gracia for dinner, so we were the only English speakers (the menu is in Catalan). EVERYTHING was perfect.

- arugula/gorganzola/tomato salad
- jamon iberico
- the BEST FOIE ever in the world. If you like foie, get thee to this place! PERFECTLY prepared and presented: seared in butter, with chopped green apple & pear, on home made brown herbal bread, with chives and pomegranate/balsamic reduction. The liver is not "pressed" or processed (like foie gras) - it is the WHOLE rich fatty buttery liver! AND ONLY 6 EURO!!!!!! In NYC, this dish would be upward of $35 (probably a lot higher in the restaurants it would be served in).
- the perfect bottle of Soanish rosato.

Fantastic service (of course, helped that my friend has 3 regular servers). One of the best dinners ever. (Did I mention that we had to order an ADDITIONAL serving of the foie? It's that good and decadent!)

12 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
