Located on the top of the Montjuïc this restaurant has a spectacular view of the city of Barcelona. It’s a revolving floor that keeps moving all the time in a slow motion. The food is excellent and the service reasonable. Nice place to go for...More

Nice Coffee during a sunny day. Prices were very good.This is a central spot above the most busy road in Barcelona. One of us tasted the ispanian omellete. Delicius but small. Gently stuff too.

Nice city view from the Olympic mountain. The food it self is nice and the waiters as well, however it's a shame that they are not educated waiters. I.e. Got wrong food twice - however it's worth it because of the spectacular view

We called in on an afternoon. We arrived on the furnicular and were desperate for a drink and sit down. The restaurant was not busy and they kindly let us use the terrace for drinks only. The view is breathtaking and this was totally memorable...More

The view is free - you can enjoy it from anywhere on the hill so don't bother going in here. Without doubt the worst meal I have had for a long time. I've eaten in a lot of smart restaurants and I'm used to paying...More

We just finished dinner at this restaurant and suggest NOT to go there unless you want to pay for just a good night view of Barcelona. It was a windy night, so with a temperature of 23 degrees Celsius and a wind chill factor, it...More

Visited for an event dinner. Even though we had a preselected menu, the food was amazing (delicious appetizers and main course - sea bass supreme porcini confit) View over Barcelona is stunning, also at night.
