Description: En pleno centro de Barcelona, Miguelitos fusiona su particular Cocina de Verdad en un ambiente moderno y vanguardista. Situado en la calle aribau 162 de Barcelona, cerca de la concurrida Rambla Catalunya, el restaurante Miguelitos enamora el paladar con su fusion de cocina moderna y de vanguardia basada en los productos frescos y de la tierra. Sus dos ambientes formados por una gran barra de tapas y platos rapidos y su acogedor comedor permiten desde los encuentros mas informales hasta cenas con encanto.Tapas, raciones y sugerencias conforman una elaborada carta asentada sobre los ingredientes de cercania, genuinos y de temporada a la que se le suman las nuevas creaciones del chef, siempre segun los productos del mercado. Una variada lista de exquisitas tentaciones que van desde los platos mas tradicionales como el rabo de toro al vino tinto o el rodaballo a la Donostriarra a elaboraciones mas originales como el atun sashimi con salsa de soja o el confit de pato con frutos dulces. Flor de calabacin en tempura, la tarrina de foie Miguelitos, su steak tartar de solomillo o su tradicional butifarra de 'Orrius' a la sarten conforman, junto con el trinxat de la Cerdanya, la caballa en escabeche y los filetes de lenguado al cava, su suculenta carta de imperdibles. Miguelitos respira modernidad y vanguardismo gracias a su cuidosa decoracion donde los disenos mas minimalistas se funden con un delicioso expositor vertical surtido con los mejores jamones y una excelente cava con una minuciosa seleccion de vinos con D.O., ideales para degustar con los mejores platos de esta particular Cocina de Verdad.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant but when we left we realized we had been had! The waiter offered some plates to try some different foods which we agreed. Plates came one by one and they were big and they continued coming. Then the meal... I won't even mention what the bill was, but it was a lesson learned. While the food was tasty it was not worth the price. Service was good- however maybe it was because we were the only ones there- it was late. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant unless you know in advance what you are ordering and the price, or you will be shocked with the bill.

This restaurant is an absolute disgrace. We went here and saw the menu prices, which where reasonable. We where seated, 6 of us and given menus. The waiter then said would you like to try tapas. We where new to this so we accepted the offer expecting to just be given a taster of a few dishes. They brought out loads of food one by one. At first we ate them then we started to get a bit worries about it been a con.

At the end we where given a bill for over 200 euros.
With no information given to us about the tapas at all, we then found out we had been seated in the tapas bar when we wanted the restaurant part.

Absolute con men.
