One of the best restaurants in the world! I mean it! Didn't expect a lot because we are foodie but every dish looks delicate and tastes so good! To me, food is a fusion of Asian and Spanish! The best of the two worlds!

Everything about this restaurant was excellent: service, atmosphere/ambiance, décor. However, the food did not live up to the 2 Star Michelin rating. My wife and I both got the Gran Menu with wine pairings and while the food was still good, it felt formulaic and...More

I'd give it a miss if I were you. The chef who created the original ABaC now has his own place in Barcelona. It is called Celeri and I think you will find it a much more rewarding experience. His ethos is based on pleasing... More

Description
Our attentive yet friendly service create a professional but relaxed atmosphere, which makes ABaC holder of 3 *** Michelin. In 2000 ABaC Restaurant opened its doors in his first location, Carrer Rec 79 in Barcelona. In May 2008 changed to his new address in Avenida Tibidabo, 1. The gastronomy is the fundamental axis of the project. The restaurant awarded with 2** Michelin, and nominated by The Best Restaurant 2011 in Catalonia by the Catalan Academy of Gastronomy, can seat up to 56 diners. Located in the newly constructed pavilion in direct contact with the garden, the interior and the exterior are found through large windows. It is a caprice of whites, in all tones. In a calm, neutral and elegant atmosphere, the sense of sophistication is shaped by the small details and the materials used, as well as a sophisticated combination of lights. The kitchen of 200 m2 has been designed by Joaquim Casademont. It is a black container, in which stainless steel furniture takes all leadership, a
