We had the most wonderful meal here tonight. I received a "confirmation email" from thefork that our reservation was confirmed, but unfortunately the restaurant hadn't received our reservation - beware this scenario!! But despite the system glitch, they made room for us and the service and food were both phenomenal. Comp virgin mojitos for the 3 kids with our fantastic adult mojitos, comp espresso martinis for the 3 adults after the meal, and decaf virgin versions for the kids - and truly delicious tapas and entrees. An awesome last night's meal in Barcelona. Thank you!!

It was amazing, we stopped by after a long day in the city and we were treated like royalty! The gazpacho with seafood is amazing as well as the black paella and the solomillo is a must!!!! Mario and Oscar made us feel like superstars visiting the hotel! We will be back for sure!!

Todo estaba perfecto.
Y terminar la velada en la terraza del hotel es un gran final.
Si subes antes de las 12 ves todos los edificios emblemáticos encendidos y vale la pena.
Estimada Señora,

Gracias por sus comentarios. Nos alegra que la experiencia fuera de su agrado. Esperamos volver a verla pronto por City Restaurant. Saludos cordiales.

The quantities served are proportional to the reduction... There is a huge lack of vegetables in the plate!

Very good food and nice place. A bit shame that I found a hair in your food, but that compensated up well.

The menu was varied and reasonably priced, including the wine list. The dishes were a good size for the price and excellent quality. We would definitely visit again.

We made a reservation at 9 pm and the place was still a bit empty .
As starter had the Iberico ham with coca bread and brave spicy potatoes. Tasted nice and no spicy found. As main course we took sausage and veal farm casserole with plums and white beans and veal with mushroom ragout. As whine can recommend the strong red Nakens Roure ( a blend ) . This place looks super trendy and staff is doing their outmost to serve you. Would go next time from 10 pm and onwards. Highly recommended.

Estupendo! Great place and delicious food. After the diner you can't miss the gin tonics at the roof top bar.

At first, I was a little disappointed by the menu card because I thought that I didn't come to Barcelona to see a menu with Burgers ans pizza.

We finally selected the Lacquered Lamb and Cod as main menu. Both were excellent, even if the dried fruit as side dish were unknown to me, but the surprise was very positive. The lamb was so tender that I didn't even need a knife and the dried fruit (apricots, raisins and figs) perfectly matched the lamb.

As a desert we had Crema Catalan and Cheese Cake which were both marvelous.

Certainly worth a visit especially if you have time to visit the Sky Bar afterwards for a drink from where you can enjoy a marvelous view over Barcelona.

The lamb shoulder was delicious! I'm typically not a fan of lamb because it tends to be too gamey....this was not at all gamey. I will have to go back again and try something else on the menu before I leave!
