I ate here last month with a group of 6 friends, 4 of which were vegetarians. So choosing a fish restaurant was not the best option:) (however they were staying in the hotel)

When ordering the waiters said it was impossible to do any veggie dishes. They refused to offer a salad, a risotto or anything. It was unbelievable, how a restaurant of this quality could not offer a single dish to someone who does not eat fish or meat. But what was even worse was the attitude that we had to deal with - like it we were from mars, and should return back there quickly.

My squid was excellent. But in hindsight we should have just walked out of the door.

We had reserved the restaurand on our arriving night at ten o'clock (stayed at the Mirror hotel). Our flight was late and we arrived ten minutes late in the restaurant. The welcoming was quite rude and we were served in such a hurry thoughout the dinner that it was almoust a comedy - the whole dinner with appertizers and 3 courses took only 45 minutes and speed eating was not very pleasant. Later on we noticed that the restaurant closes at 11 pm which explains the hurry, but no one told us that - and why on earth they even take 10 pm reservations in fine dining restaurant if customers need to be out by 11 pm?
The food was not very special either, some of the ideas were innovative and thoughtfully presented on the plate (like langoustini cannellonis), but many of the courses lacked taste and we got the feeling that restaurant tried to be more than it was capable of. The wine list is good, but since we didn't want to share a whole bottle there was only one white wine option. I ask the waiter about it and the answer was "well, it's not bad". Not the answer you usually get in high end restaurants...(though the wine was quite good after all).

The breakfast buffet offered an impresssive display of chesses, cured meats, fresh fruits and juices and vegetables. Must try the variety of spanisg rice dishes for lunch or dinner, absolutely worthwhile!

The Mirror hotel is in the upscale shopping neighborhood of Barcelona. There are great bars, restaurants and stores nearby and if you have a good map you can walk to Las Ramblas in 15 minutes. La Sagrada Familia is 2 metro stops away. CASA Mila is around the corner. The whole area feels very safe and I didn't feel like a tourist. Hotel is clean, has many mirrors!!! But is a cool place.

Having eaten in many luxury as well as less luxurious establishments, this was a major deception. With the Paco Perez brand to the restaurant, one would expect quality, presentation and passion for kitchen and food. This was not the case here. Absolutely overpriced, average and boring cuisine, wines that just cut it and a service level that is focused on turning tables in an empty restaurant. No ambiance, no effort and no coordination. Never again for me, my lady and my friends.
