This was our favorite meal while in Barcelona. Every dish was delicious and interesting, with many layers of flavor. We did 1/2 portions of most things so we could try more. The cheesecake was divine, and so was the ceviche.

That’s a very nice restaurant, it doesn’t look particularly modern, but food is delicious. Worth visiting.

Our favorite restaurant (so far!) since moving here. An interesting asian fusion with authentic spanish tapas. The mussels were devine! As was the pork loin, cheese plate, and everything else. Start to finish.

A simple and pared-down restaurant that serves great food - both traditional as well as innovative in terms of Asian influences.. Superb quality of ingredients, extremely well cooked.. and the service is knowledgeable as well as charming! Highly recommended!

We absolutely loved this fusion of asian with spanish food. Great service and good prices. My favorite was the eggplant dish: deep fried eggplant pieces dressed in a wasabi, sweet sauce. Dessert was to due for as well.

Part of our starters we serve in this way, by weight on waxed paper. Belly of pork with cumin and paprika (Chicharrones from Cadiz), cut Spanish ham, cecina (cured beef), white prawns from Huelva ... We focus our cooking on the product. Grilled dishes such as octopus legs, squid on pancetta and truffled Parmentier, high angus tenderloin, loin of Iberian pork ... We are very aware of our mother's cooking, Andalusian and Catalan. From Andalusia comes our fried fish, oxtail, gazpacho from Cordova (salmorejo) ... From Catalonia rice dishes from the Ebre delta, "sea and mountain" cuisine... We make some nods to other cuisines that we are passionate about, like the Japanese with our tuna Tataky with garlic and almonds cream (ajoblanco), or Peruvian ceviche... We learn every day from our customers and fellow chefs. We like to think our best meal is yet to come.
