Fine it's pricey, but didn't you expect that from Mandarin Oriental? After you eat, the chef comes to say hi. It's a great place. Takes at least an hour and a half to two hours to eat. Amazing service and detail to every food plate you get. You truly see the definition of food as an art form. (and of... More

It was great, just enjoyed a 14 course diner with my 10 years old son. Only the "silent's of the lambs" gave us some chills. The titanic was hilarious. Recommended for everyone who visits Barcelona!

I'll start off by saying this review is based purely on the food. What an amazing food experience they have created at Moments, from the beginning through to the end the food, presentation and extras were out of this world. We both went for tasting menu and it really was an assault on your senses. It's definitely worth a visit... More

Had lunch with a friend staying at the hotel. There were three of us in all, so I must admit there was not that much variety in what we ordered, but aside from the amuse-bouches, we found the food rather lacking in flavor. The presentation was imaginative and offbeat (one item was delivered in a paper bag, and included a... More

Be prepared for waiting and waiting for food ! My husband ordered the tasting menu from this Michelin two star restaurant, And I ordered a la carte. Warning: don't ever do that! Once he is finished - the other has 8 courses to go . After complaining, we were told that the average time of the tasting is three hours.... More

The restaurant is located in the hotel "Mandarin", has 2 Michelin stars. In many respects the restaurant deserves these stars: all dishes (in a set of them there were 13!) made very high quality, with imagination. Of course, the service is also on a high level.

Our last night in BCN, and we were exhausted and apprehensive of another long tasting menu .. so glad we rallied to Moments. Excellent service and great atmosphere. The themed Passport menu could have been a little kitschy, but was well-executed and excellent courses with well-chosen wine pairing menu. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience from start to finish and will... More

I had lunch there and the food is spectacular. Since getting in their personnel treats you like a special guest. Their sommelier, a Mexican girl, is very helpful and knowledgeable. You easily can identify that she loves her job. It is a fusion type of restaurant that mixes some Asian food with Catalan touch. Go there if you want to... More

This Michelin-starred restaurant is located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. It certainly deserves its stars. We wound up there on Valentine's day and the chef's menu was a 14-course extravaganza. Each coarse came from city which has a Mandarin hotel (Hong Kong, Paris, Bangkok, etc.). Each course was perfectly proportioned and seasoned exactly correctly. The service was timed perfectly--not too... More

Description
Key to Chef Ruscalleda’s success is the inspiration she finds in fresh produce; her culinary team search daily for the season’s finest. The Moments menu features traditional dishes from the Catalan cookbook such as arroz caldoso (rice dish with broth), fricandó (veal stew) and suquet (fish stew). The dining room is an ultimately chic space; gold and amber touches glint in the bright daylight and shimmer in the evening.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
