“A wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We visited Barcelona to celebrate my 50th birthday and wanted a special restaurant for the evening. We booked Con Gracia based on TripAdvisor reviews and could not have asked for anywhere better. It is an intimate restaurant with 2 tasting menus. We chose the surprise menu with tasting wines. Both the food and wines were superb. All the customers were English speaking and it wasn't long before everyone engaged in conversation which created a lively atmosphere enjoyed by all. It really was a wonderful evening. In fact we had such a good time that we forgot to take any photos! At least I have the memories and I would like to thank the two gentlemen who looked after everyone so well for helping to make them so special.

“Special”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

If you are looking for a special occasion or just a top quality restaurant, go to Con Gracia. Absolutely brilliant. The menu structure is different and exciting as you are able to choose from a surprise or tradition degustation. We had the surprise degustation which is at the chef's discretion and we were not disappointed. Beautiful food, interesting and fresh menu thoughtfully presented. Unique dishes without trying too hard. The quality food is supported by the excellent wait staff. Both maitre de and head waiter are extremely knowledgable, personable and passionate about what they do. Service is efficient without being hurried and trust the maitre de with wine ideas. He knows what he's doing. A gem of a restaurant that is definitely worthy of a visit, if not several!

“Hard to add anything more - was as good as all the reviews”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We can't add much to what has already been said about the fantastic Con Gracia. Impeccable service, food was beautifully cooked and presented. We had the traditional set tasting menu and enjoyed every dish. This is a fairly large amount of food overall and we had the matched wines which were superb and plentiful. The dessert of chocolate cake was so good. Really worth a visit.

“fantastic dining experience”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

To set the scene its my 40th and my wife has just surprised me with a trip to Barcelona. First night we go out to dinner to this small restaurant in Gracia. The welcome was amazing. Two waiters own front of house and make you feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble and the menu is very simple to understand. To explain....you choose the set menu or take a gamble and the chef will cook for you, but you don't know what you are going to get. We chose the later. The food was to die for. The wines provided in the surprise wine accompaniment was equally amazing. Every one in the restaurant gasped or drew a breath of surprise every few minutes as another course of delight arrived. At one point I was treated to a schezuan flower which enhanced my palate allowing me to further enjoy the flavours of the dishes. Incredible.
At the end of the night our cab was delayed so sparkling wine was provided free of charge until our driver arrived.
Truly an amazing culinary experience.
Cant wait to go back
