This is without doubt the best meal I have ever had. It was so good I proposed to my now-girlfriend here. The food, wine pairing and service were exquisite. This will have a Michelin Star very soon Marcus the waitor was impeccable

My husband and I found this restaurant on trip advisor. We went on a Tuesday evening and it was quiet. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing and the waiters response was " Thank you for giving us your trust". Each of many dishes was wonderful, creative and beautifully explained by Marcos. He was extremely knowledgeable on the wines... More

A friend recommended this place, so we didn't know much about it when we went, but were pleasantly surprised. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing and every dish was fantastic, but the wine really made the experience special. We even bought a bottle of one of the red wines to take home. Service was excellent and very good... More

Description
Based on an exhaustive selection of the best raw materials in our region, the gastronomic offer is made from simple and tasty tapas to a full season tasting menu. Paying the utmost attention in the respect for the raw materials, producers and our environment, we work to make the gastronomic experience not only pleasant and fun, but also sustainable, fair and healthy. 80% of the products we use in our kitchen, from vegetables, meats and fish, to wines, beverages and breads, come from small producers in the region. This obliges us and allows us to always work with seasonal products and update our menus permanently. We do not use gluten or lactose and the sugar from our desserts is integral and environmentally friendly. The visit of our clients, then, becomes a comprehensive event ranging from the sensory enjoyment proper to an emotional satisfaction derived from the knowledge of knowing that what is being enjoyed also contributes to strengthen the local economy and Our own health.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
