Having tried several steakhouse restaurants in Barcelona, this one finally matches high quality beef, properly prepared. Service was quite friendly. My medium rare steak was perfectly cooked (not overcooked as is common in Spain). While I generally prefer a less bright eating environment this brightness...More

Muchísimas gracias

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
