Delicious food! Beautifully presented! Interesting flavour compositions - surprising! - for example tiramisu with jelly beer and parmesan ice cream. Very nice service. And intimate place. Prices are average, not high.

We had an incredible evening and a splendid dinner; a pure delight. We started with a small selection of tapas; top 😋 The eggs with truffle oil is a must eat and for dessert the foamed Catalan cream.

We went there for a business dinner and we ate in a private room. The restaurant is very nice but the room could have had a bit of background music. Food is excellent, some dishes are reinvented traditional dishes, others kept as there were but very nicely cooked. Wine list also very good and excellent service. We will be back.

We had great Catalan food, not touristy place seems to be well known by the local. Ingredients are of high quality and cooking style traditional with precision. Definitively recommend. Great for business they have a private dinner room with beamer. Need to book.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
