We were looking forward to our meal in this Barcelona restaurant, and having travelled thousands of miles, we were not disappointed. The flavours in the set menu were quote extraordinary and the servings were visually interesting. We had the pleasure of meeting head chef Carlos Munoz Castro and he was kind enough to share his philosophy of the menu.

There is only seating for about 20 in this smallish restaurant, so it is advisable to book early. We secured our reservation about 3 months in advance.

A must try restaurant if you are in Barcelona.

Lovely atmosphere, without the usual pretension of fine dining venues. The venue is quite small & intimate & the food is the star. We were a party of 4 and the food was not only visually stunning but so very delicious. This was a most enjoyable food experience.

32 course tasting menu and after each course we were excited to see what creation was coming to us next!. Our table was near the area where they prerpare the dishes so we could watch as they prepared. Service was great. Peruvian and Japanese food fuse very well!

I had looked forward to going here for a long time and hoped that we'd get a glimpse of El Bulli magic...but we didn't, far from it.
I have absolutely no idea why people are raving about this place. Whilst it's probably true that the food was executed well by the sushi/sashimi chefs...the food was awful!

If you're thing is to be served 20 courses of raw seafood, then maybe you'll like it, but in all the 20+ courses, there was absolutely nothing memorable. There was no wow factor in anything and every course was extremely bland, bordering on the nauseating. (How many times did raw sea bass get put done in front of me? 4 times!)

Desserts were an absolute joke and did not resemble or taste like any dessert that you've had before.

There's a huge difference between genius and pretension and this place has no genius but lashing of pretension.

After 3 hours in here, we were exhausted and so happy to leave. A very, very expensive meal of bite size portions of raw seafood, with no flavour to be found anywhere.

Amazing service (attentive, friendly, smiling faces) and excellent food. We went for the complete menu and it's worth every single euro. The pisco sour was also incredible.
