Description: Lasarte Restaurant opened in January 2006 and holds 2 Michelin stars since 2010. Lasarte is Martín Berasategui's cuisine embassy in Barcelona. After a full renovation carried out recently, the new Lasarte Restaurant is surprisingly much more modern and with more spacious and bright look. The emphasis on light, textures with dominance of oak and selection of furnishings have been the mainstay of the entire project to give the restaurant a unique personality. The culinary offer keeps the essence of Martin Berasategui's cuisine. At the head of the kitchen is Paolo Casagrande, who presents a selection of Berasategui's signature dishes with passion and enthusiasm, as well as new innovative dishes created especially for Lasarte. Joan Carles Ibáñez and his front of house team are the kitchen's ambassadors in the dining room and responsible for ensuring this wonderful cuisine reaches the table in a simply perfect way to make any visit a celebration. The restaurant has a semi-private room in the main dining room and a second private dining room, called the Chef's Table for up to 8 people -located in a loft over the kitchen with a glass wall that allows our guests to follow on all staging and creativity of the dishes.

We visited this restaurant in April, I always like to search out a really special restaurant when ever I go away, and this did not disappoint at all,
Everything was just perfect, the service was excellent and the food was certainly top quality, many thanks to all the staff who made our anniversary dinner so special

I have been to many Michelin restaurants in various countries and this one is definitely at the top of my list. Several reasons:

1 - The place is nice, well decorated (albeit slightly minimalist) and the setting is just right: not too formal, just enough, nice crockery (in fact a different type of plate for every dish) and brillant waiters.

2 - Prompt and courteous service, with a real effort by the waiters to explain the dishes without sounding too trite. Great effort to speak English too.

3 - A very inventive menu, with dishes which are innovative and extremely well presented.

4 - Very tasty food.

We had chosen the tasting menu, which gives you no less than 12 dishes for something like €140 each. A real bargain, especially as each has a very decent portion size. Some of the dishes are real works of art. In many Michelin restaurants, you get a piece of meat on a bed of posh mash potatoes but here you don't. You really get your money's worth or inventivity and I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants an affordable Michelin experience Spanish style. I would recomment the tasting menu to everyone.

We really wanted to like this place. However, we just came from a visit to France and went to many Michelin restaurants from 1 - 3 stars and most recently ended on a 3 star one. The atmosphere here was definitely more stuffy and stiff compared to any of the ones we went to. It just was not an enjoyable atmosphere. The food was above average and the chef did well. It was expensive and I just felt this time it wasn't worth it. When you are paying this much you also expect service and atmosphere to be better than it was. The food alone didn't justify going. Maybe if you have never enjoyed this type of food and creativity then maybe you would be more impressed. They have an a la carte menu and two different tasting menus. None of the other places made us choose the exact same menu because of my allergy issues and they had allowed my husband to choose the tasting menu and I the a la carte even if their standard is to impose the same menu for the table. However, here I was told that this is a problem for me and the kitchen and as such we both had to do the a la carte.

Delicious, inventive food. One surprise after another. Excellent, friendly service. Very expensive -- great for a very special occasion. Staff adjusted tasting menu for us pescatarians. After four small appetizers, we had a wonderful meal of trout tartare, smoked oyster, vegetable leaves salad (a work of art!), scampi ravioli, red prawn, home yolk, turbot, sea bass, melon with ice cream and yogurt, French toast, and petit fours. A truly incredible meal!
