Many layers and combinations of flavors from excellent ingredients, all well-prepared. Served by a knowledgeable, attentive and affable wait staff. Well worth a return trip.

We were on a 2 week tour of Spain, going to all the nice places around the country to stay and to eat, most based on Trip Advisor reviews. Some were good, some ok. But our last night dinner before we leave had to be perfect. So I scrolled down all the recommended restaurants in the vicinity of our hotel in Barcelona, and after reading all reviews and checking out the pics, decided on Codium.
I wanted it to be perfect...and it was not less than that: the food, the wine, the atmosphere and the service.
A high quality, fantastically delicious food paired with professional and warm help of the waiter who spoke perfect English. A wonderful, spotless experience. Cannot think of anything I would have changed or added. It was fulfilling and romantic.
From the menu we had two entries of tuna tartaki, two mains (beef cheeks and a steak) and two deserts (habla con silencio and one with strawberry), a bottle of the recommended great wine, water and 2 cups of tea. The bill came to 113 euros. It was totally worth it! The portions are not too big, so you are able to enjoy a 3-course meal without feeling too full. Indeed, the best dinner experience we have had in two weeks! You should try it too! P.S. Book in advance, just in case.

Absolutely fantastic food - portions not overly large but what it lacks in quantity it more than compensates for in quality. The tuna and sesame with wasabi icecream was a particular delight!

We ate at Codium having eaten at 2 other very good restaurants in Barcelona and were delighted. The restaurant setting is very nice and simple. The waiter is very helpful. We asked for the heat to go down, and it was taken care of immediately. They bring out complimentary amuse bouche and cava. When we said we couldn't eat one because it had pork they brought us a replacement immediately, without asking. The waiter handled a very difficult table near us with great skill. The food was terrific, sophisticated, but not too much and very very tasty. I had the tuna starter followed by the duck ravioli which was beautifully presented and sweet but not overly so. My wife had a salad she thought was outstanding as was her other dish. Desserts were wonderful and the wine we had was stunning at about 25 euros. It is not as lively a place as say Cera23, but still very warm and inviting. For the caliber of food, the bill was very reasonable but it is not cheap. We would highly recommend it.
