“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Wonderful dinner and super nice staff! Elegant interior. We enjoyed it and the device was exceptional. We were greeted by whom I assume was the manager who spoke English and was engaging with conversation. They really took interest in our enjoying our visit. We has scallops and carpaccio appetizers with the most amazing celery, lime sorbet! Then duck and a filet. I would highly recommend.
Thanks for a wonderful dinner!

“Acces -suit up for a full house.”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

A quick note on the excellent service we received from Sergio and the team at the Acces Restaurant. We arrived way too early but Sergio was happy to seat us in the lounge area for over an hour until the kitchen opened at 8.00 pm. Its closed on Sundays.

The street presence is unpretentious as the frontage would only be 5m wide . Inside the lounge extends down the passage like room which has been further narrowed by the building in of toilets and other services. At the end the room opens out into an expansive seating area decorated in black, silver , amethyst and greys, with one entire wall dedicated to a glazed full height window directly into the spotless and modern kitchen. Some serious money has been spent on this facility and nothing has been omitted. The staff are uniformed and highly professional and the background music composed of mainly Jazz classics , but unintrusive in volume.

The Botanical gin and tonic was very well served and we also had some mouth melting cured ham served on a slate while we were waiting in the lounge . All of the staff made us feel welcome.

The menu is modern and the food is crafted with both an eye to presentation and taste.The competition is fierce in Barcelona in this price bracket and the Acces is well deserving of its high rating . You can see the menu on line .

It is worth noting that if you want extra vegetables with your main course you had better ask for them as the vegetables incorporated into the mains are more a crafted culinary suggestion than something tangible to eat. It would have been good to have a bit more of a prompt from the waiter on this when we ordered as this would have probably pulled my rating up. We felt like we needed those side dishes to round out and complete the meal.

My wife had the tri-color starter and the duck main. The duck is very rich so plain eaters be aware as it turned out to be a bit too rich for my wife.She ordered medium but it was a light medium . I had the oxtail cannelloni ( a great choice ) and the fillet , ordered medium. It was a also a lightly done medium so if you want it done a little more then go medium/well.

The service through the night was faultless and un-intrusive . The spacious kitchen had up to seven people working in it at times but appeared very well organised and fully under control . The waiting time from order to table delivery was prompt and well spaced and it was evident that the good coordination in the kitchen meant dishes at a table were prepared and completed so they arrived together - without one standing for any length of time .

With one sparkling water , a bottle of Catalonian Chardonnay, and one gin the drinks were around 32 euros . The food was 63 euros for two . We did not have desert so it would be a little higher if you had a desert or with a couple of sides of vegetables.

It would be wise to book on line as the restaurant looks like it could get very busy on peak days.

“Delicious,delicious,delicious!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

It's not very often that I write a review,it takes something really special for me to take the time out to scribble a few words!!
I dined at accès with friends on Saturday 30th May. What a culinary experience! From the moment we stepped in the door I knew we were in for something special.The staff were very friendly and a real bonus that they spoke fluently many languages as there was a mixture of French and English speaking amongst us.
The restaurant has an open kitchen which i was mesmerised by, I love getting to see my food being prepared from scratch,no pre prepared food that gets zapped in a microwave here!!

The menu consists of so many mouthwatering dishes that you'll find it difficult to choose!
I started with the foie gras which is made in-house one word: DIVINE, followed by lamb with rosemary infused potato and for dessert a chocolate coulant with ice-cream.

The atmosphere was relaxed and although there wasn't a table free the staff were cool,calm and efficient not always easy in a Fully booked restaurant on a saturday night!
The chef has prepared a menu here which is innovative,delicious and has you wanting to come back for more!

I will be booking my table in advance for my next trip to Barcelona!!!

“Excellent restaurant from booking process to taxi home....great food.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Can't praise this restaurant enough. I booked online, easy, efficient, text confirmation immediate.
We arrived early to enjoy their well reviewed cocktails. We were not disappointed...greeted by the owner and made welcome and comfortable. We had a Margarita and Mohito as good as the best I have had in New York. Really professional barman, Spanish but spoke excellent Mandarin to some visitors from Taiwan. Impressed!

Food and ambience excellent and just the right amount of attention from the very professional staff.

I eat out a lot in many European cities and rarely find restaurants like this where all aspects are of an equally high standard. We thought the bill was very good value. Both my 80 year old mother and my 15 year old daughter liked the decor and the atmosphere. Cool, but not over-designed. And the holy grail for all restaurants as I see it is...COMFORTABLE CHAIRS! ...They were.

Owner hailed a taxi for us and we left assuring him, we will come again. (September is the plan...love Barcelona). Great and very reasonable. :)))
