“Captured yet TWO reservations at Tickets. What an experience”
I practiced for a week two months in advance, to figure out the reservation on-line system. Bingo, it worked. Off we went to experience the "first" reservation. What a fantastic experience. Everything that arrived at our table had "wow" factor. We decided on letting our waiter choose our courses and we were to tell him when we were getting full so that he could stop with the food and bring 3 or 4 desserts. We started with many fish courses, then moved on to meat courses. in between were interesting and amusing little bits of things to taste. The desserts were amazing. We chose to drink Cava with our meal, which worked out well, they just kept pouring. We had our own waiter who just sort of "stood waiting" and his timing was perfect. I have to say that I've heard so much about this restaurant and I was so excited to be there that my only concern was that it would live up to our expectations. When we were seated and our first glass of Cava arrived, we toasted our good fortune to have a chance to experience a night like this. We weren't disappointed.
The first reservation was for my grown granddaughter and my two daughters, a "girlie" thing. the next reservation was for me and my husband. We were careful not to give away secrets in our conversation so that he could enjoy the surprises. The night before our noontime reservations, we had dinner outside of Barcelona at Cellar can Roca, supposedly the second best restaurant in Spain...it was fantastic. So we get up the next morning and think about our meal at Tickets and I say to my husband...."I don't think I can do this again"...he agreed and we actually cancelled our reservation. Now that I'm back in the US, I regret cancelling, but we just couldn't face more food.
Tickets was outstanding. Already planning a return trip as Barcelona is my new favorite city.
