    Disappointing from the start. The restaurant had no record of our booking even though I had an email confirmation. Only because I called to advise of food allergies in our party it became apparent there was a problem. That was rectified with a few emails. We were a party of 10 having the tasting menu as specified in my emails. On arrival we were still presented with menus and no awareness of the allergies?!? How is this possible?! Two of the wines selected from their wine menu were not available, and the waiter made several mistakes with the pouring. Not good for this level of restaurant. The first three courses were delicious, the final plate of duck with mustard barley was by far the worst plate of food I’ve even been served. The duck was not tender, in fact it was chewy. The skin had not been rendered down enough and it was very difficult to remove from the meat. And finally the amount of mustard in the barley was so overpowering that it killed any possibility of tasting the duck. The evidence was in the 10 plates that went back to the kitchen uneaten. I am surprised that the chef did not come out to apologise, it was embarrassing. The Catalan foam dessert was tasty but not appealing to the eye. There are many excellent restaurants in Barcelona, therefore we will not return here.

    My wife and I had the Tasting Menu. It was really great value for money. The portions were generous and the food was simply delicious. The fish and black mushroom pasta were exquisite. Service was excellent.

    Nice food but it went much too quicky (the next course came withina minute after finishing the previous one. It was much too hot in the restaurant, very unpleasant.

    The atmosphere was nice but a little cold. However the waiters were super nice, helpful and friendly. I’m glad they were there or perhaps the night would’ve been less special.

    The tasting menu is ok, but beer pairing is dissapointing. A wine pairing option would have been far better. Beers are not that good. I would say 1 out of 5 beers did not dissapoint. I beleive customers should be informed that when they get the beer pairing, they get to share a small bottle of beer (not 1 bottle for 1 customer) per each course. Overall, the food was good, not super good but good. If you avoid the tasting menu options, I believe you get a better result in the end
