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.

“exqusite, elegant, fine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Having enjoyed the Menu Degustation which, including several appetizers, came in 14 small courses, we were very positively surprised. Of course, when you take the Menu Degustation there might be one or the other bite that's not of your taste but overall it was very good. The pre-selected wine harmony that goes with it (you can choise whether you want it or not) matches the food very well. The manager and sommelier Joan is most knowlegeable and truly a master of his field. He's very passionate about his job, something one doesn't find very often anymore.
Overall, we walked out of this fine establishment very satisfied.

“Best restaurant experience, so far.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

It really is a pleasure writing a review about this wonderful restaurant in the heart of Barcelona.
I hope it'll be read by as many travelers as possible who might want to try that culinary fireworks we experienced on our second trip to Catalonia's capital.
At first it might seem a little stiff and formal, but once you get used to how a Michelin-starred restaurant has to execute the service you will fall in love with this restaurant.
We had the most amazing young waiter to anticipate our every wish and the dishes served were evidence of creativity, fresh ingredients and love for food being put together in order to make your mouth water. All in all it was THE culinary experience of my life so far and I'd highly recommend Restaurante Lasarte for all of you!

“Very short - Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We had the Lasarte menu, which was excellent. There was only one dish that we didn't like that much. The other ones were all perfect.

Ambience - very good (though the aircon was too cold - beware ladies!)
Service - perfect
Food quality - perfect
Food fantasy - perfect
Wine parings - perfect
Price - very fair

All in all. A place that I would visit again and again.

“Simply superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

I ate here with my wife and our adult daughter. We chose a la carte. Between us, we doubled up on only one course, so it was virtually a do it yourself degustation! Each dish was amazing, prepared and served to bring out the full flavours that the principal ingredients possessed. Sometimes, I think, top restaurants (and make no mistake, this is one) get a little carried with technique and tricks, to the detriment rather than enhancement of the food. Not so here.
The range of dishes was so great that it was hard to choose a bottle of wine, so we asked the sommelier for by the glass selections. He obliged with well thought out choices that worked really well with our dishes, and was always prepared to discuss and on occasion change on request.
The wait staff were warm without being effusive, and helpful in the extreme. Perhaps it helped that between us we, in particular our daughter, have reasonable Spanish, but the staff were always prepared to speak in English for the benefit of my wife, and did so with proficiency.
All in all, it was a most memorable meal, one of the very best I have had anywhere.
Expensive? Sure. Value? Yes indeed. You really get what you pay for, and sadly that's not always the case with 2 star establishments.
We'll be back in a flash on our next trip to Barcelona.
