    Wonderful dinner at Contraban. Frederico was amazing and we took his recommendations on what to eat and drink and were not disappointed. The atmosphere in the courtyard was magical and we were lucky to have it all to ourselves. Definitely recommend.

    A well kept secret in a discrete part of the old town. A truely Catalonian gourmet experience, with excellent service and nice ambience. A very good price benefit ratio also helps put this restaurant at the top of my Barcelona recommendations.

    Wonderful ambience, great service. Only recommendation is that the staff should keep an eye on empty glasses more often. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    Espectacular, la berengena es de otro mundo, los canelones sublimes, pidas lo que pidas vas a tener una cena memorable. Totalmente recomendable.. eso si, no apto para todos los bolsillos.

    Very good service , the waiter gave us good advice and the food was tasty. Just a small regret , on their website it shows the rooftop which is not actually part of the restaurant .. so the view is not the scene but the patio downstairs was also charming.

    Amazing atmosphere! The music was just wonderful, half of the songs were from my playlist and another half were shazamed during the whole experience ???? servers dressed as old navy guys, they looked synced and added to the whole picture the great dash of beautifulness, food was great even though the meniu card was hard to read (since the fancy names????). Loved the idea that the hotel and restaurant is adults only so no kids running/screaming was in sight ???? we liked it there so much we planned to book our next stay at hotel Wittmore!

    Hi Simona, What a review! First things first, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Nice to hear you liked our home. We indeed try to set this chill-cozy vibe with the music and the layout so our guests can truly enjoy their time with us. Glad to hear that this was accomplished! Regarding the menu, we know it can be seen as complex, but we must say it can be fun and above all, very artistic too. Well, hope to have you back soon Simona! All the best, Contraban team

    Super welcoming staff, delicious food - and enough of it! Great service in a beautiful restaurant/library bar in a hotel. Broad menu with local dishes. Staff very tentative, cateres to your individual needs, without being at all pushy. Lovely experience. A hidden gem in Barcelona.

    Unfortunately the food was not that impressive and absolutely not as good as when the place was called the Witty. It’s sad because the restaurant itself and the hotel are such pleasant places to be.

    Contraban (Only adults/Solo adultos) (Owner)

    Hi Dirk-Jan, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We appreciate your input as it helps us to improve our service and see where we can do better. We do sometimes miss as well the old Witty (it was gorgeous indeed), but we try to pick some of its best characteristics and blend it with our new concept Contraban. We'll try to do it better next time you visit us ;) Please, do let us know by emailing sala@wittmorehotel.com, if you decide to come again and give us a second chance. It will be a pleasure to welcome you back. Warmest regards, Contraban team
