“Should be better for a restaurant”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

Casa Dario has a fairly good location. The place looks dated and furnitures should be changed to give it a better atmosphere. The chairs make such disturbing noise every time the guest sitting down or getting out. The height of the table does not allow comfortable sitting. Overall appearance and comfort of the place is poor.

How about the services? It was not bad on their attitude to serve however with the manpower available it can be better with better coordination. We were in the restaurant between 9:00 until 11:00 p.m. There were six tables including ours. Most of the customers were elderly couples except a table of four. Wish the mood in the place can be livelier.

Casa Dario was supposed to be known for their Northern Spanish cuisine. However we found that the menu offered mostly seafood with difficult choice to combine from starter to main. The unexciting menu probably put many customers off. However when it came to the food itself, we can only say that it was not bad but it should be better. This is the first restaurant in Barcelona that we never think of returning again.

“Common and decadent”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

it was clearly a gorgeous and refined restaurant... but once upon a time. Food is pretty conmon, furniture and atmosphere heavy,facilities and courtesy of the staff are good but not enough to justify a poor value for money. We wish them all to come back to a glorious past,nevertheless actually in Barcelona there's much more to enjoy.

“A real nightmare”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Casa Dario was my worst experience in the marvellous city of Barcelona. Being a great fan of Trip Advisor i would not have selected this restaurant on my own for no reason but unfortunatelly i had to go there because i was invited. The food was teriible... almost tasteless. The staff was rude. Imagine that they spilled wine on my shirt while taking the bottle that had almost finished without apologizing! They seemed to be in hurry as they brought us the desert while two members of our company had not finished their main dish!Of course the desert was disappointing too! The atmosphere was tragic. Old furniture with no fantasy at all!
in conclusion... don't waste one of your nights in this wonderful city by visting it!

“Good food, a bit stuffy place”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

Traditional, a bit old fashioned place, with a butler and old style servers. We had fish (lubina) cooked in salt, a mediteranean dish we had tried previously in Italy. It was good but expensive !
Sorbets were delicious too but the galician pastry not up to standards. Wine was some sort of galician "muscadet", not bad but not fantastic either.

“Customer service!!!”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

Casa Dario is a restaurant that has a focus on seafood. It lies in a rather posh area and has relativly high prices. The meny is very traditional with little innovation or intentions to make the meny more exiting. On top of that the service is bad and allmost reluctant to answer the questions from the guests.
