This Michelin-starred restaurant is located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. It certainly deserves its stars. We wound up there on Valentine's day and the chef's menu was a 14-course extravaganza. Each coarse came from city which has a Mandarin hotel (Hong Kong, Paris, Bangkok, etc.). Each course was perfectly proportioned and seasoned exactly correctly. The service was timed perfectly--not too... More

This is a must for all foodies. 13 courses in the tasting menu and we enjoyed every one. Food will really make you think. The different ingredients and how they marry together will blow your mind. Service is as expected. Outstanding. Be prepared for the petit fours!

Incredible and amazing food at Moments. The tasting menu was light with lots of delicious sea food and fish. So perfect. We asked for butter with our bed (because we are very British) and the chef freshly made butter just for us. I often think about how wonderful this meal was. The head chef is also a woman which is...

Likes: Superb customer experience and ambience, Tasting menu with enough variety and a fun takeaway passport, Nice plating, Boldness in providing simplicity on a plate, Strong fish dishes.

My husband and I were food poisoned after dining at this two star Michelin restaurant on December 30, 2016. We both ordered "the trip" a 14 course tasting menu.

Read a lot about owner/patron Ruscalleda and that she has the most number of Michelin stars under her belt (5 - 3 for her famous Sant Pau and 2 for Sant Pau Tokyo) for a female chef. Moments has further 2* and is run by her son- Raul Balam. So I had high expectations and I wasn't disappointed. Yes ,... More

Description
Key to Chef Ruscalleda’s success is the inspiration she finds in fresh produce; her culinary team search daily for the season’s finest. The Moments menu features traditional dishes from the Catalan cookbook such as arroz caldoso (rice dish with broth), fricandó (veal stew) and suquet (fish stew). The dining room is an ultimately chic space; gold and amber touches glint in the bright daylight and shimmer in the evening.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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.
