All four of us agreed that this restaurant had the qualities of an easy top ten experience for us. Attentive staff, excellent overall service and amazingly created chef. Only comments from the two women were that they found a couple of the dishes a...

We went this April to the Abac-restaurant in Barcelona and were very satisfied. Pros: - Friendly/Professional staff - Cuisine at a very high level but not through the whole menu - Nice interior - Rather "private" tables, with enough spacing between Cons: - One or two courses weren't as creative as they need to be in my opinion

The staff were amazing, responsive to our every need, many great suggestions to explore the city and super friendly. The hotel is very stylish with great decor. We enjoyed the tasting menu dinner with wine pairings... Heavenly. Probably the most comfortable bed we have slept in.

The food is so delicious and surprising that I would like to eat here every week. The service is impeccable and de sommelier was able to recommend a very good cava based on our preferences. We had a great evening out and came home late but happy. The restaurant is based north of the centre of Barcelona, just a taxi...

From the very first moment of booking, to the very last moments of farewell, this hotel was a complete joy.

I stayed at Abac Hotel for 3 nights during my Europe trip and it is an experience I truly recommend. Amazing staff, excellent customer service especially the helpful and cheerful reception team and wonderful facilities.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
GASTRONOMY, ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN... A UNIQUE GOURMET EXPERIENCE ABaC Restaurant Hotel Monument 5* GL is located in Sarria-Sant Gervasi, the upper zone of Barcelona, with views to the Kennedy square and surrounded with the vegetation of La Tamarita gardens. Close to the most important points of the city. Work of the architect Antoni de Moragas, consists of two buildings integrated in a garden. The centennial building was refurbished due to its historical value and it was the old residence of Dona Madronita, an intellectual of the born Catalan bourgeoisie at the end of XIX century. She was the daughter of the famous pharmacist Dr. Andreu, and she was the wife of the North American Max Klein (president of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States and one of the introducers of the basketball in Spain). On the other hand, the new crystal pavilion is covered of lattices of wood and joined the garden. Landscape and architecture give themselves the hand in a space of pure lines.

DINING In 2000 ABaC Restaurant opened its doors in his first location, Carrer del Rec 79 in Barcelona. In May 2008 changed to his new address in Avenida Tibidabo, 1.

Located in the newly constructed pavilion in direct contact with the garden, the interior and the exterior are found through large windows. It is a caprice of whites, in all tones. In a calm, neutral and elegant atmosphere, the sense of sophistication is shaped by the small details and the materials used, as well as a sophisticated combination of lights. The kitchen of 200 m2 has been designed by Joaquim Casademont.
