Dear Mrs. Ana,

Thank you very much for your review! We're happy to know that you enjoyed in santaGula.

About the service, I inform you that from November 2013 the management company is totally different, there is a partner and few employees that still work with us but there are other people that have gone.

I couldn't respond about the quality of service of before but I assure you that from last november to now we are putting all the interest on this thing.

Regarding this thing, please could you help us to know when you have a bad experience in terms of service?

Thank you very much for your comments, it will be so useful.

Best,

Ignacio.

“Absolutely astonishing”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

It isn't easy to find good food in Barcelona.. Too many touristic places with same menu, where all you get is different versions of tapas - very plain, not very creative, and usually not very healthy..

But this place in the vey heart of Barcelona, just a few minutes walk from Diagonal, is different. First impression may be misleading - the inside is quite small and even tight, just a couple of tables and it seems as if you're a stranger trying to intervene into this very small and cozy world.. You'll even probably won't be able to get in without a reservation (at least I couldn't), because this the kind of place where all guests are friends, family and friends of friends..

But once you get in prepare for an unforgettable gourmet journey, where you will become a friend (or a fan) at the end! The mushroom ravioli that you get as a starter in unforgettable - 12 of10 on any scale! Then, you get on to the main course - and (believe it or not) every single one was a best shot - sardines, tuna tempura and beef tenderloin we're taking us to the moon! But once you land there - that is where the biggest surprise is waiting for you - the desert! Muesli with mandarina scherbet and cream catalunya a la French creme brullet is what makes you loose your mind and fall in love with this place forever! It is brilliant, really!
