    We appreciated our dinner. However, we were expecting more ...

    Trendy restaurant with adequate Mediterranean food. Steak and duck breast were undercooked so we could not eat the whole servings as the meats were too chewy. Other dishes good.

    The food was pretty good, not very tasty but not bad either, a little but bland in my taste. The main issue we had with this place was the atmosphere - the lighting was extremely unflattering for both people and the dishes, it was this weird type of fluorescent blue light that erased any other colors. So when you're speaking to your date and they're weirdly blue, and the good arrives and there seems to be delicious vegetables but everything's blue... It alters our experience. Also it looked like a strange posh place, maybe where people meet to have an affair... Very strange. I like a more relaxed, casual atmosphere.

    Fantastic food. Best steak I've ever had. The waiter was brilliant considering he was on his own.

    The quality of food was correct, and with the 50% discount it was good value for money. The waiter after making us wait extra 15 min for our table brought the check without being asked for it... Worth checking it out, but I'm not looking forward going back.

    The place is beautiful but the food is so, so painfully bad. I would recommend to order dishes that can't go wrong like jamón. We left half the food because it was either inedible or grose. The chef would do much better leaving all seas

    This was the second time we went to The Bencn. Nothing has changed since last time (about 1 year ago). Sevice is kind and choice of dishes for all taste. Tataki was not as good as expected, on the contrary Patatas Bravas with tasty sauce and Fried small fish were our favourites this time.
    Chocolate dominates dessert. If full of people (as it was this Sunday at Lunch) could be a little bit noisy, however not too much.

    Well, the chef must have been away on that day. As a starter they served several slices of a supermarket quality cheese with some spices and olive oil on it. Later on, my salmon tartar was a mix of every ingredient you might think about but it did not taste like salmon tartar. For the main course, we all had different choices, but all badly prepared, and all equally decorated with rose and green sauce spots - no difference either for fish or meat.

    The food was ok, but not for paying original price. We had discount, and for that final amount it was ok. My father had the meat fillet, and that was really bad. But the rest of our food was ok.

    Very disappointing... Service was slow and couldn't understand what we wanted in English or Spanish... The quality of the food is very low and the prices are very high when compared with many restaurant in Barcelona. A big miss that I won't recommend!
