i recently had dinner with several friends at senyor parellada - never again! the service was distracted, the entrées arrived haphazardly and the food preparation was off… i've had many good meals here - the menu is interesting and the prices are reasonable - but i think the best advice is to go at lunchtime when the place is not too crowded… and whatever you do, don't let them seat you upstairs - both times i've been upstairs the service has been atrocious - including one occasion when the waiter broke a wine glass (spilling the contents) and reacted negatively when asked to replace it (with a full one…)! they definitely need to give their waitstaff some rudimentary training...

I'm just getting around to writing this review, since things got rather hectic since our trip to Barcelona in July! We ate at Señyor Parellada upon the recommendation of one of our chef friends. The restaurant appears to be a fancy restaurant located in the "El Born" neighborhood, but guests are not expected to be dressed up--sometimes that is difficult to do when you are traveling! Our meal was very relaxing, close to 3.5 hours! Attention was paid to every detail. The menu is written in many different languages: Catalán (the local language), Spanish, English, French and maybe something else!

We had a bottle of Cava AND a bottle of wine from the Penedes region of Spain. We weren't driving so we were fine with the amount of the wine consumed. My husband and I are always eager to try local wines and we were not disappointed with our selection here. They have a fairly extensive wine list that was reasonably priced. We had a chance to speak with the boss who informed us that they prepare local and hormone-free foods.

Our service was excellent and timely. The food was extremely well-prepared and with good-sized portions. We enjoyed our experience so much that we went back another night during our stay and our server from our previous visit recognized us and made a point to stop by to say hello and ask how our meal was! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Arrogant waiters who have never heard of customer service throw cold food on your table and expect you to part with your money for it. A deception, we won't come back.

Everything about this place is just right. When you walk in, you really feel as if your in a classy establishment. It is very grandly but tastefully decorated with a lovely atmosphere. The menu sounds amazing and we found it hard to choose what to get. When our meals did come, the portion sizes were decent and the taste was top class. The service was fast...but not so that you feel they are rushing you, and the waiters are very polite and professional. When the bill came we were shocked at the value. If anything the place is underpriced. A glass of cava for 1.90!

Definitely worth a visit, but book at table. Something you can do via the hotel.
