Very fresh produce, deftly skilled cooks create savory and scrumptious dishes. Waiters fly in an excited frenzy, service is really quick, really attentive, it's not quiet but not overly noisy either but it's like the satisfactory hum of a well oiled machine. Beautifully decorated and always spotless, its a classy and vibrant place. Price ways its fair to say its... More

Having read that this restaurant was one of the best by Conde Nest Traveler, I made a reservation for an upcoming trip. When I arrived at the restaurant 45 minutes early for my reservation, I was offered to be seated at the bar instead of a table, which I could wait for at my reserved time, even though no one...

By sheer coincidence we ended up in this place. Appeared they cook the most excellent food you will ever eat. You cannot miss "La Bomba", a spicy meatball, but even the patatas bravas (or bravissimes) are amazing. Beware; you might overeat. Once you start you will want to sample the whole menu. No debate. Just do it.

Magnificent tapas, mixing traditional tapas with great fusion/Eastern cuisine. Not cheap, but very good quality including great service.

Of the three tapas places we visited, this was the best. We did not know reservations could be made (not the usual thing in tapas places) so we showed up early and were lucky enough to be seated as soon as they opened. Everything we tried was very good and the service was very attentive. I would definitely return.

Delicious food! Definitely make a reservation way ahead of time. The menu is a good variety of seafood and meat. I don't eat meat or dairy and I was having a difficult time with this in Barcelona. The scallops here were very VERY good. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I read the very good comments and i booked there for the last dinner in Barca. The place was full and noicy on a weekday. A big minus was the table stools instead of chairs that were uncomfortable. Apart of that, the food was ok but nothing more than that.

Very high quality of service, food and super relaxing atmosphere. Best Jamon Iberico I ever had :) place to come back. Better to reserve on time. At the bar always possible to find a slot.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
