Not that I'm jaded, but I've enjoyed 3 two star Michelin restaurants, and 2 three star Michelin restaurants in the past five weeks: the bulk were in San Sebastian at the obvious suspects. ABaC definitely falls within the 2 star parameters. Front of the house...More

This restaurant was good, very expensive but I couldn't get the wow effect, had the grand menu. The pigeon was chewy and it's supposed to be the star dish. Could be replace with something else. Service was good.

I booked Abac via The Fork/Tripadvisor in mid July. We were traveling to Barcelona in mid October (just returned this afternoon)-- to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Given the timing, there were a lot of great choices available. In the end, we decided on Abac--...More

The issue is always the same when you go to a star restaurant: should a restaurant be that expensive, is it OK to pay that much for a meal? That's up to discussion and will always be. Now, if you are among those who thinks...More

A cannot believe some people have given bad reviews - I found the food and service to be perfect. I had the tasting menu. What impressed the most was the theatrics around the serving, which does add to the experience, i.e. making the chocolate sorbet...More

I'd give it a miss if I were you. The chef who created the original ABaC now has his own place in Barcelona. It is called Celeri and I think you will find it a much more rewarding experience. His ethos is based on pleasing... More
