A fantastic dinning experience, this was my second visit and it did not disappoint. Fantastic food, atmosphere and service. Excellent wine recommendations and all courses given a short but informative introduction.

Depending on your expectations, keep it low. It's a normal restaurant that I don't get how can be rated on the first 10 rest of Barcelona. Only tasting menu, not expensive but not worth the journey for us because the place and design is not very nice

Exceptional : the quality of the ingredients is absolutely incredible, no compromise; the dishes were delicious : very precise while creative and based on local recipes. Last but not least the cook is also doing the service, we were speachless. Choice of wine is excellent.... What else? A young chef who deserves a lot of respect!!!

Not much to look at from the outside. However, the food was very good. We chose the taster meal. The service was smooth and each dish was explained. The balance of flavour and textures just kept getting better.

This was our "big night out" in Barcelona, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. It's a tiny place, and I think we lucked out getting a reservation the day before because Barcelona was playing Arsenal that night, and lots of folks were focused on the game. We also ate early--8:30. They offer a tasting menu, but... More

Following good reviews, I decided to try this place for lunch and certainly was not disappointed. The location is somewhat remote, but do not be deceived - it is worth the trip. The food is creative and very good (try the boneless piglet!) and service is very friendly. Definitely on my list to visit again. (lunch a la carte with... More

The restaurant is a reasonable distance away from the city centre, but you should make the effort! The tasting menu for 55 euros was superb, both the quality and the value, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. The owner does an excellent job, and even though the setting is a little humble I paid more for less enjoyable... More

Staying in Poblenou

Neighbourhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centres catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
