    Second time here. They had a trainee working the seafood grill who wasn’t quite perfect but everyone and everything else was.

    Very high expectations as I know the Chef's fame and the restaurant has 1 Michelin star. Overall the quality of the ingredients is excellent, the preparation perhaps just a little bit below the very high standards usually provided by the Chef. Nothing to complain about but nothing to really rave about either.

    The concept of sharing each course is optimal so you can taste every dish and all the courses that we have tasted were really excellent! We have particularly loved the garlic shrimp rice with his texture and his taste. Also the two desserts that we tried were outstanding. The staff was pleasant and always ready to help and answer our questions.

    Excellent food, drinks and atmosphere! Unfortunately the bill was brought to us without asking for it while we still wanted a digestive. As compensation we were given two coffee free of charge, but again the bill then was given to us. I had to pay while drinking my coffee. Apart from that little issue, great place to go to!

    It was a pleasure for the Chef to stop at each table to say "hello." The restaurant s beautiful. The service was a bit disjointed, but overall a pleasurable experience.

    Great inventive food by a great Catalan chef. The Calamar in Kimchi and Egg was the standout dish, Fried oysters also exceptional. The chocolate dessert was incredible. Sitting outside on the terrace watching the world go by I couldnt be happier.

    Superb 11 tapas tasting menu although pace a little fast with courses overlapping at times. Excellent service with a smile and made to feel very welcome by the whole team. Warm ambience and great concept. Sorry to hear the restaurant is relocating to larger premises and hope this won’t spoil the wonderful dining experience.

    Loved the food, the theatre and the setting. I suspect inside had more atmosphere as it was busier, but on a warm Barcelona night we were happy to be one of a couple of tables outside. Staff were very engaging and the food was spectacular.

    The restaurant has a very interesting decor, the service is impeccable and most importantly the food is excellent. Rice with shrimps and garlic is unforgettable.
