For us real foodies Barcelona is like Disney for the kids. You will find top quality Catalan and Spanish places by the dozens. It is rare to find a city with so many top choices. espai Kru is a small restaurant about 2 km from the Gothic Quarter so it can be a nice little walk if you are staying in that area. The decor is pleasant but nothing special. The service is good, language skills are good for the most part which comes handy in Spain if you know what I mean. How many of you found a taxi driver in Barcelona ho spoke English? Although the ribs were nice as was the grilled seabass an the paella, go here if you love raw stuff with a bit of a twist. I happen to be a big Italian, Japanese and Asian food fan in general and I loved the simple but still taste bud pampering fresh sauces with the various raw plates. The raw red mullet was outstanding as was the raw scallops with ponzu sauce and salmon eggs. Visually and taste wise the raw oysters in a kind of peruvian ceviche sauce really made my day if not the whole weekend. The raw lobster tartar with a bit of a sevruga caviar also worth a try but the portion like with the mullett is fairly big. Unless you are a big eater, pace yourself. I don't think the scallops tempura was anything special but one of my all time favorite, percebes or goose barnacles were just the right size and succulent.
Prices are reasonable which is suprising, including the wine list. The same bottle of a nice albarino I like, Mar de Frades was about a third less then in other top restaurants in the city. Clearly the place is not trying to take advantage of you on the drinks. Lunch or dinner great but not with groups of more than 4 people. They are not set up for that.
You will enjoy this one.
