The restaurant is located in the historical center, in the pedestrian zone. It is small, and there were no empty seats. You sit at the bar counter around the kitchen, the chefs prepare food right in front of you. We ordered a set, it consisted of 7 or 8 dishes. We liked most of the dishes, all were cooked with...

I had a lot of things here and all of the plates were a work of art and with many daring options in the menu I ent for all. Had a great wine and dinner with a few friends.

Unbelievably great culinary experience in the very heart of Barcelona. Hundred meters from Rambla Dos Palillos offers excellent food in amazing atmosphere. The idea is perfectly simple. You sit at a bar, see the kitchen, drink wine and eat Tapas. But what taps! Classical highest quality Spanish ingredients done Japanese way. Iberian pork dewlap in sweet soya sauce. The small...

After multiple warnings about my son's severe tree nut allergy, the Dos Palillos team served us a nut-filled dumpling as part of one of the courses. Lame excuses were given about misunderstanding our repeated warnings (in writing during booking and at the start of the meal to the servers). Really poorly handled by the restaurant. Ruined the rest of my... More

An option than you can't miss if you love Japaness food and you spend some days in Barcelona. You must book a table in advance. To have dinner there are two times: 19:30 or 22:30h. Menus are long and complet. My suggestion: it's better the 19:30h shift. All dishes are delicious and some of them surprising.

Service is terrible and the food was nothing of fusion the cook because they can not be... More

An interesting restaurant in a Boho suburb of Barcelona. Decoration was unique sitting in the bar overlooking the cooks that prepare the dishes. The Service very good The effort and imagination as well as the quality of the dishes was 8/10. The room was lucking the ventilation required when the kitchen is in the middle. The price was high compared... More

We visited the restaurant in February and we had made a reservation for a late dinner on the terrace. Despite sitting on the terrace we didn't have the option of ordering the a la carte menu. The tasting menu is quite challenging if you are not a fan of seafood but the quality of the food is great. The service... More

As a chef I took my now girlfriend here on our first date to show her what a michelin place was all about. Was very disappointed. None of the dishes had flavour and we both struggled to understand what they were trying to do with each dish. service was ok. Not very attentive.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
