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 managed to get a table during our visit to Barcelona after a few tries. It turned out that they had a cancellation which opened up for us.
When we got there we were welcomed by the nicest and most professional staff. They really made us feel special during our stay at Lasarte. The first impression was that it is a quite small restaurant but very classy.
The food was just a fantastic experience. We went for the seasonal menu with matched wines, and it turned out to be a really good choice. All courses where really tasty and worthy a two star Michelin restaurant.
Before we left the restaurant we where offered a visit in the kitchen and to meet the chef himself. The kitchen by the way was very impressive and about three times the size of the restaurant itself.
We will definitely come back next time we are in Barcelona.

We have been to many Michelin starred restaurants all over the world and Lasarte stands definitely at the top. The atmosphere and the service were perfect: not to stiff and easily adapting to the customers. The food was magic and the chef had to adapt for my husband some of the dishes due to an unusual allergy: we appreciated very much the excellent way he did this. We had the Tasting menu, which is a real bargain with more than 12 dishes which are innovative, extremely well presented and very tasty. We choose a nice bottle of wine and had a very interesting conversation with the sommelier. If we could we would eat there at least every month.

We ate the chef's tasting menu, with wine pairings. Expensive, but
Worth it. The chef has brought together imaginative dishes with great flair and incredible tastes. Only order the wine pairing if you are able to drink large quantities of wine - we got 2 glasses of each wine, in addition to the Cava offered at the beginning of the meal. Numerous courses, as the chef said, each course should be only 3 or 4 bites. This restaurant deserves it's place as one of Barcelona's best.

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.
