“Love food? Eat here!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Love food? Eat here!
My wife and I love good food. We are always trying new restaurants and looking for that hidden gem. We were on vacation living down the street from Petit Pau. Decided we would give it a try. We were greeted with a big warm welcoming smile. Pau, the owner, introduced himself and Chef Marc. We immediately felt at home and sat at the Chef's Table. Pau then in English led us through the menu telling us the compilations of each dish and recommended some pairings. You can hear the passion for his food in his voice. My wife and I ordered two starters and two main dishes. Our first dish was scallops. With one bite our eyes rolled back into our heads with delight. Everything we ate was carefully thought out and prepared. This is the gem we have been searching for. They split each one of our dishes onto two plates so we could both try everything. We loved the food and experience so much we went back for lunch a couple days later. We had a hard time choosing which dish was our favorite. Pau also gave us plenty of local information and mentioned several places to visit. Credit card is accepted. Call to make a reservation if possible since it fills up quickly and you don't want to miss out. Fantastic restaurant!

“Small is beautiful!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Every time I go to Barcelona i have to visit Petit Pau. This tiny and charming restaurant is the perfect restaurant for a quite and gastronomic dinner. Paul explains in Catalan or English in detail the composition of the fresh cooked dishes of the Menu in such a nice way that you would order the all menu. The short -but enough-Menu of 5 Starters and 5 Mains and the Wine List of 3 well chosen wines changes monthly. Extraordinary experience!
