Description: The Etapes gourmet restaurant is located in the Eixample of Barcelona near the commercial center of the city. Etapes model seeks to contribute to a healthy and sustainable food with the use of techniques that respect the properties of a seasonal product and proximity. Cannelloni, roasted with foie gras and truffled cream cheese, shelled lobster, fresh fish, boned and crispy suckling pig and paella respect their traditional flavors with an updated preparation and presentation. We have a wide selection of wines with over 400 diferent references and the restaurant atmosphere is intimate and quiet.

My wife and I arrived for a late dinner and were greeted at the door by Didac, one of the owners. We ordered Jamon Iberico de bellota with tomato bread for appetizer and after trying tapas like this one in over 20 different places for the last two weeks, I can honestly say that these were far superior than all other. For main curses we had lobster spaghetti "al bronzo", and lamb rack and pumpkin millefuille.
The lobster spaghetti tastes like no other spaghetti I have tried before, creamy but just enough.
The lamb was perfectly cooked and served, it also tasted great.
The wine selection and wine knowledge are well above most places in Barcelona. We enjoyed the VIP service that we received and will defenitely be coming back soon.
Keep the great work.

The food was very good, but unfortunately it took unusually long from ordering until the main course came on the table. The interior is good looking, but sterile. For me it doesn't have soul. Etapes has two spoon/forks in the Michelin guide and for the food quality, it is well deserved. Unfortunately not for the interior or service. If I am going to visit Etapes again, I'm going to sit on the outdoor seating to have whatever happens outside as scenery for my meal.

Select Chefs Tasting Menu this evening. Everything was good, with the best being the suckling pig. There wasn't anything that we didn't like, but wish there was more of it. If you want a meal that provides you a taste of Spain, highly recommend eTapes.

After reading enthusiastic reviews on this site, we were expecting more of this restaurant. On the positive side, a very friendly attentive service, and correct prices. But food level cannot be compared with much better restaurants at similar price levels in this town, sorry... The monkfish , despite a creative presentation, was quite standard, the starter "home-made caneloni" quite filling and not very subtile, and deserts are probably not home made... The pork/shrimp ravioli was very good however. The red wine was disappointing, though not too pricy (25€).
