Description: Cullera de Boix restaurant in Barcelona near the Plaça Catalunya and in Plaça Urquinaona offers fresh, inspired Catalan cuisine in modern surroundings. On the main floor you’ll find a buzzing bar with light, bright décor and very groovy typeface-inspired design, while the dining room carries on the themes of wooden floors, pale walls, dangling lights in hot Iberian colours, and cool seating. Chef Matarrodona – a graduate of the Jean-Luc Figueres kitchen – is inspired by rice and noodle dishes, offering a menu that changes frequently to reflect the seasons. Consider mushroom risotto with idiazabal cheese, black rice with cuttlefish and prawns or risotto with fish and seafood. Main courses feature both land and sea creatures in inventive presentations and the wine list tempts you with more than 200 bottles to try.

“OK if you're not fussy.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We stopped in for some quick tapas dishes. NOT impressed at all.

The grilled vegetables was way too salty and greasy with olive oil. The bread was dripping (pooling) in olive oil. It too was salty and had no garlic flavour.

It was one of a handful of things open. I think I'd go hungry next time rather than eat here. Not for those who like good spanish cuisine. OK if you're not fussy.

“Convenient, but good”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We choose this restaurant as it was 2 minutes from our hotel and we wanted something local. However, we didn't want to settle for second best...and we didn't have to. Paella was tasty (salty as mentioned before, but that suited me), and veal was very well cooked. Complimentary cava is always appreciated! Not as cheap as some places, but definitely more of a restaurant than simply a tapas bar.

“Food was good, but awful, rude service”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The food was very good -- especially the first course dishes -- but the service was beyond terrible. Our server was incredibly rude -- shoved the plates in front of us, forgot drinks, plunked a bottle of wine on the table without opening it. The restaurant was full but not incredibly full. Do not recommend.

“A Jewel in a Sea of Tourist Traps”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Just off La Rambla is this fantastic restaurant, away from all the hideous, overpriced, photo showing tat.
This restaurant is unassuming yet excellent. The décor is classic and very tasteful. The service is friendly yet professional and nothing is too much trouble for them. It would be suitable for a family meal, friends night out, a romantic meal, or even a business meeting.
The food, well, we had the mixed roasted vegetables and the calamari for sharing as starters and both were very tasty. The mains, we both had duck, and it was very well cooked, with a fantastic taste and sauce with it that made the flavour a bit smokey (in a nice way), came on a bed of soft mash (I think) - but no veg, so if you are a veg person (which I think this dish could have done with - not much just a bean or two) you will need to order veg extra.
The pricing is set at a reasonable rate, I would rather pay for this meal rather than a 10€ dish of tapas. It isn't a rip off place in terms of price.
The desserts are also interesting they have the usual run of the mill desserts with a slight twist. I had Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramel sauce and Oreo, H had Cheesecake with Ginger Ice Cream, if you think "I might like that, not sure", you will.....
All dishes are beautifully presented
The wine accompanying the meal was very nice and not expensive - it was the house, but it was very nice. They do rotate their "wine of the day" suggestions each day. Be aware a bottle of water is 3.65€, which is extortionately expensive and completely against the rest of the pricing structure, however wasn't too bothered by this as the rest of the meal was very good, and they comp'd my coffee......no reason, just because....
