“Promised too much, delivered too little”
Reviewed November 22, 2009

I have to admit I had really looked forward to sampling what Origen 99'9 had to offer, the chain is based on the concept that 99.9% of their produce is sourced in Cataluna; and the menu is full of classic Catalan dishes. Sadly Origen promised so much that the reality is somewhat disapointing.
Dry bread, old and tired garlic that burns the tongue; small and gritty snails all detracted from the overall experience.
I would go back to an Origen in the future, however I wont be expecting anything amazing next time. I would recommend it to friends, but again with a warning not to expect too much...

“Prefab crap! The prices...”
Reviewed January 12, 2009

Prefab crap! The prices are not bad, so the value is quite ok as well. But as a picky eater that likes his traditional Catalan food all the Origen 99,9% restaurants aren't for me. All the meals are prefab and just heated (sometimes nuked) in the microwave oven.

“Not for me I´m afraid”
Reviewed November 21, 2008

Thought it was a bit over-priced for basic food. It could be a neat concept for the tourist who wants to learn a little about this type of local food.
