“Average food, big prices, great views.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

If you want good food this is NOT the place to go, however if it is views you are after this is the place, although you pay for it. The service is pretty amateurish for the prices. All in all I would not recommend this restaurant at its current very high prices. For the price you pay to eat here you could get some truly spectacular food elsewhere.

“Tantalizing flavours in a neon experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

A wonderful experience, we tried the tasting menu and every mouthful was a pleasure. The view was amazing, the staff were super efficient and pleasant, the ambience on this occasion felt like a 70's throwback in a miami vice setting, absolutely loved it.

“Nothing special... unless you enjoy food poisoning”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

I had the misfortune of trying this restaurant, as part of a business party of 30+ people.

The following day 3-4 guys had food poisoning, which aptly sums up the experience.

The staff are slow, ambiance is ok - although the venue does provide great views of Barcelona.

Incredibly expensive for the poor food quality. And please remember to pack a magnifying glass so you can see the food on your plate. For several of the dishes we thought that had brought out a sampler... only to discover that was the whole dish.

I cannot in good conscience recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Romantic, Wonderful Views and Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

This restaurant is expensive but the views are magnificent, the atmosphere quiet and peaceful while the service is impressively unobtrusive. This restaurant is sited in the tower above where the cable car runs from; a great bonus is that you can by-pass the queue for the cable car by asking the maitre d' to buy you tickets. The portions are small but beautifully prepared and served and the tastes are perfectly combined. There are approximately eight starters and the same number of main courses; the majority being fish; there were vegetarian options. The wine list is impressive and there are bottles to tempt everyone and match every course. The house wine is excellent as is their selection of desert wines which are offered to compliment the exciting desert menu.

“A must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Great expectations often lead you to disappointment - not with Torre d'alta Mar.

Access is via a lift to 75 meters above sea level to be greeted by a magnificent view over Barcelona. With 360 degree views as your back drop and the tasteful decor - the food did not need to be exceptional to make this a fabulous experience.

However, from the very first course, the Mediterranean cuisine was superb - full of flavour. The seafood, obviously their specialty, was fresh and beautifully prepared and presented.

As a destination restaurant, you must visit Torre d'Alta Mar if you spend anytime in Barcelona.
