I've visited Pla restaurant many times over the years. I came back again this March and again it didn't disappoint!

The food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection and the service was superb and I felt like a Queen being looked after by the staff especially as a lone female traveller.

At the end of the meal the restaurant brought me a complimentary sweet...unfortunately it had nuts in it, so I advised of my allergies and in an instant they brought me a delicious marshmallow alternative and bent over backwards to accommodate my needs...

I highly recommend you visit Pla restaurant during to trip to Barcelona. It is within 10 minutes walk of Jaume metro station.

Every dish was wonderful, from the amuse bouche to the dessert. Would recommend for a special meal with inventive taste combinations - it was bit pricey, but worth it for a very special experience.

Pla was recommended to me by Barcelona Cooking (great cooking class I took!). I thought I would check it out as it was close to where the cooking class was hosted on La Rambla. I was so happy I did! I was treated to excellent and attentive service alongside some incredible food. The ingredients were fresh, beautifully ripened, and local with a bit of a rustic flare. I had the garden green salad with tomato and the greens were unlike anything I've ever tasted (I was so taken with them I asked my server to write down the names of all the ingredients so I could try to find them back home! After a quick Google search, I am likely out of luck--the ingredients are locally grown and quite unique it seems!) I also had the seasonal vegetables with barley, and it was hearty and very satisfying. The atmosphere was sophisticated but accessible, warm and inviting. My favourite meal so far after a week in Barcelona!

We had reservations for 8PM, so we knew the restaurant would be relatively quiet at first. As the night wore on, the place was filled to capacity. The atmosphere is chic, modern, inviting. A continuous roll of photos were projected over the restaurants large logo on the main wall provided an ever changing art exhibit.

The waiter came to our table, pulled up a chair, and made conversation with us about the menu. Nice touch.
Chef's Amuse Bouche was a chilled potato leek soup shooter with citrus and finishing salt. A perfect shot!
Apps: Torched Mackerel with lemon, garlic, cucumber and watercress. Simple and elegant.
Kimchi Octopus roll - perfectly cooked octopus wrapped in a leaf of house kimchi. A sensation!
Mains: Seaweed and Prawn risotto - rice was perfectly cooked with a nice tooth. Heady, briny aroma, without being too salty, prawns melted in the mouth, and the seaweed was a perfect accompaniment.

We were so well sated by the end that we opted for no dessert.

We will be back!
