We spotted Avalon after getting lost looking for another restruant and lets just say I was glad we got lost! Don't be put off by the quiet atmosphere, the service throughout was perfect. I wish I could mention our waiter personally, but I didn't catch...More

Great food, great price Only thing, when quiet (we were in 9pm) there is limited atmosphere - needs some low but atmospheric music!! The waiters are attentive but conscious of the very quiet atmosphere are almost whisper - needs a little volume to make it...More

As I expect in a 5 star hotel, Avalon Restaurant is really exquisite. Try the tapas and their red wines. Be happy and have a good day. We also eat each morning here. We find a variety of good things, for every taste. The personnel...More

Avalon Restaurant at the Grand Central Hotel in Barcelona. This was thé best diner we've ever had. Ramon Freixa is a Michelin star cook. But we paid less then in a "normal" restaurant in our home town Ghent.

This restaurant is part of a hotel. Very nice inside and the service was very good. We booked online and we chose the special menu. The food was very good for the price we paid and I would return again.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
