Neighbourhood: La Rambla
Description: Bacco is an observatory placed in a privileged place: at the beginning and over La Rambla.We are located where this walk begins, touching Plaça de Catalunya, one of the most central and emblematic places of this city.But if you want to see us you will have to raise your sight, because we have settled in the first floor. Not habitual? Maybe, but we have thought that from here, you can enjoy the spectacle, the light and the pother, with the whole calmness that a good meal deserves.Contemplate, feel and savour. Our space is thought so that every meal is done in a special environment.

We had a window seat overlooking Las Ramblas, lots of people and quite a party atmosphere in the street, being a Saturday night. The food and service were very good. I didn't think it was so expensive, given the quality of the food.

We sat in the window overlooking the Ramblas. Wow. And the food! A simple nuts and fruit salad for starters, delicious hake cooked with pine nuts, sultanas and spinach, followed by crema catalan with ice cream. Excellent! Could not be faulted! But it was a shame it was so expensive - I guess we were paying for the view. If you are splashing out a bit, I'd highly recommend this very good restaurant.

Food and service were good.
Appetizers/starters:
-Serrano ham good but expensive at almost 10 Euros for an appetizer size dish.
-Langoustines with lemon picante sauce and nut oil excellent but very small, only 3 small shrimps for about 8 Euros.
-Ravioli with foie gras and mushroom: plain, the only dish we had which wasn't really good.

-Main dish: seafood Paella, loaded with shellfish, tasty but when compared with some other paella we had including the very best one at Barraca in Madrid, nothing outstanding.

Overall, nice setting, good food, good service, a bit overpriced.

Right on Las Ramblas, from the first floor (one level up from the street), this restaurant offer premier people watching from lovely interior dining room. Sit by the window and watch the Ramblas activity as you dine. Not tapas, but a more standard dining experience. The food was quite good and the service excellent. I recommend.

We arrived for our first night in Barcelona having spent a week travelling the area. Wandering along the Ramblas, this restaurant caught our eye and we are glad it did. The food was really good, every dish packed with flavour.

Standout dish was the turbot which was one of the best fish dishes I have ever had.

Added to the good food was the entertainment. We were seated in the window with an excellent view of the Ramblas and the spectacle just kept us amused the whole evening - all human life is here.

But even if you cannot get a window seat, come here and try the food as it was so so good.
