En plena Via Laietana, unos ojos (literalmente) nos divisan desde un bello palacete de fachada neoclásica que ha sido sometido a diversas intervenciones a lo largo de los años. La última de ellas, a cargo del estudio Alonso & Balaguer, fue destinada a albergar el Ohla Barcelona, un exquisito hotel boutique de cinco estrellas cuya oferta gastronómica y coctelera es toda una joya. Su restaurante gastronómico, Caelis, Estrella MICHELIN 2005, es un buen ejemplo de alta gastronomía con acento francés de la mano de un chef, Romain Fornell, que lleva tantos años viviendo y trabajando en Barcelona que se ha convertido a su vez en el mejor de los conocedores de la gastronomía local.

Pese a la calidez y sobriedad de un interior con hermosos suelos de madera y una barra con capacidad para 14 personas desde la que se puede contemplar la cocina, la propuesta de Caelis es un dechado de creatividad, que bebe de la tradición mediterránea para salpicarla de pinceladas francesas. Este compromiso se nota en platos como la lubina au beurre blanc de guisante con un velo al estragón o una Tatin irresistible.


La selección de quesos de los postres es siempre una grata sorpresa para los amantes del fromage.

    The table seating started exactly at the booking time, which is a tad bit inconvenient but I don't mind as the restaurant got some lounging area. After seated I was served aperitives which consists of faux olive, vermouth bonbon, and crips with caviaroli. I ordered the premium lunch option. For the entree, I got grilled leek salad, hake, beefsteak, which ended with a lovely red fruit cheesecake paired with sweet wine and espresso. The meal was accompanied by both red and white wine; three compound butter and two kinds of bread. The meal was great and all the waiter were very nice, the only mishap was that the red wine pairing for the steak wasn't served together, which is understandable as the restaurant were packed, but the sommelier handled it professionally. Would recommend.

    Enjoyed watching the chefs at work at this beautifully decorated⭐️one-starred Michelin restaurant; meticulously prepping every mouth-watering dish from the 11-course New Year’s day tasting menu. I would highly recommend to get a seat by the bar and be entertained while waiting for each plate to be ready. The tasting menu was nicely paired with both wine and red wines. Like other tasting menus, expect to enjoy the experience in no less than two hours.

    In my dessert there was some silver folio and after telling them they apologized but didn't try to find a solution or compensate for it. Also we had a booking 2 weeks before but they canceled last minute and promised some compensation but actually no action happened when we finally eat at the place even though we mentioned that inconvenience when we made the reservation

    This is one of few restaurants we keep returning to, for lunch and dinner. Service is perfect, food is divine and we never been anything but super happy. Their lunch deal is a steal! So worth the money. Book in advance

    First time to this restaurant. Great seating at the bar so we could watch the food preparation as it was sent out. For Michelin one star, it’s not been the best. But they do some very interesting dishes, it’s one to keep an eye on. Wine pairings were a little hit and miss, but again some interesting choices. I would go back and I’d be very interested to see how the menu evolves.
