Description: A respected restaurant run by the Freixa family has been here for many years, but when son Ramon took over the kitchen, the classic Catalan cuisine was turbo-charged with new inventiveness and a buzz of excitement began about the place that has never ceased. Dark-eyed chef Friexa is now a Spanish celebrity, with telly appearances and popular cookbooks. The decor is quite traditional, perfect for romantic trysts or business meals. The creative menu includes dishes like potato and olive millefeuille with crayfish crumble, fennel ice cream and roman lettuce hearts, main courses of roasted lobster with rabbit ribs a la milanese with home-made pasta and dried fruits, and sweet -- Freixa's first love -- of an astounding Chocolate 2004.5 The Cardinal Points of four chocolate dream dishes.

I've been twice now to this restaurant. Once for lunch and again for dinner over a period of six months. Each meal was excellent.
The staff were attentive and professional. The tomato bread, the best I've had, the sausage to start amazing.
If you want a great thoroughly Spanish meal, try this, although just a fraction further than the main tourist route, it is well worth it.

This restaurant gets my best recommandations. Despite not having a huge staff, they are very attentative and very competent. We had a lovely 5 course dinner with different wines and all the dishes were well prepared, very tasty and felt very authentic. This was definetly one of the best restaurants I've been to while I was in Barcelona and very good value for money. Will look forward to come back next time I go to Barcelona again. A must try.

Everything about this dinner was excellent. The delicious food and the customer service. We were all trying new dishes and they were a total success. We were the first group in and the next to the last to close the restaurant. A wonderful experience.

Had mums birthday meal booked in the restaurant. We were greeted with smile and welcoming feeling. Had cake booked and had a choice list. Cake was delicious. Meals were made in high quality and were really finger licking. Chef came out to check on us if we are happy which was a really nice gesture. Had a taxi booked for us too. Would highly recommend if you want a class evening.
