We were wowed either visually or gastronomically (and usually both) by each 14 courses we were served. It actually felt like a great "value" at 90 euros each!

Our meal from start to finish was just about 2 hours, which is about the perfect length for us. But with 14 courses, it actually felt a little rushed between each course so be forewarned of the pacing. As soon as we finished, the plates would be cleared away and the next course would arrive within a few minutes. The dishes seemed to be presented in rotating order of Japanese and then by Peruvian origin. We were slightly more impressed by the Japanese influences in general.

The showstoppers were the ceviche course and the fried whole snapper. Also the meringues served with the caramel ice cream were amazing! Airy, light, and chewy all at the same time. Absolutely fantastic.

The service isn't as polished as you would find in a city such as New York or San Francisco, but it was fine and the star of the show is the food anyways.

We had reservations for Tickets originally, but a postponement in plans made those unavailable to rebook so we opted for Pakta. We had the most memorable meal and would recommend this for anyone who was looking for the same.

Since many of the same dishes we enjoyed are already captured in the photos section, I'll add just a few that seemed unique.

If in Barcelona do not miss this wonderful experience of Peruvian/Japanese fusion cooking. There are two tasting menus to choose from and you won't go away hungry from ordering either. Each dish is a work of culinary art. It is all about the combination of flavors and they have gotten everything right. Sit at table 5 and experience the chef and her team at work. Just marvelous. My wife and I have not stopped talking about this restaurant since our dinner the other evening. The staff is wonderful and helped pick out a wine to accompany dinner that was excellent. We even asked the chef to come back to Chicago with us. We will be back and yes, it is expensive but worth every penny!

Had dinner just now and I was blown away with the food. Impeccable quality and presentation. The food like art and the flavour was spot on. It was pricey but worth every single cent.

We ordered the Macchu Picchu menu along with the sake pairing and loved it. The food as exquisite and the servers added to the experience with their expert explanations of the food. The only dish I did not like as much was the soup (mortared chalaca with mussels and yucca chips) as it was little too salty for my taste. Definitely make a reservation and go!
