I was amaized to have a Japanese BBQ in Barcelona and announcing they have A5 beef from Japan (probably one of the best meats in the world). Place is great (with jazz music in the background to offer a modern taste to the place, we loved it). Menus are well proposed (39€ and 69€ per person without drinks). So you... More

We had a set Christmas meny. Especially the fried pork was very tasty. Guests make some of the cooking themselves supervised by nice staff. Enjoyed trying different sakes, even if not so much to our tastes. (They have of course also western beverages.) the surroundings are not very elegant and you should book in advance and be let in through... More

It's the second time I go to Carlota: I never get discontented. It is a unique experience of flavors, topped by the A5 meat and the friendliness of all the staff. I recommend it to 100% if you want to eat well and have a unique experience

Great food and overall a memorable experience We had the 65 tasting menu and really enjoyed it, but a word to the wise...meat meat meat! Lots of different cuts of wagyu beef. Quite expensive overall, so,maybe a once in a blue moon occasion, but it's the quality of the ingredients that makes it so expensive

Good quality meats, but small portion and high prices. Small dishes shrink as soon as they touch he grill. Nice atmosphere and decoration.

Carlos Akaneya was a welcome break from 2 weeks of Spanish food, the meat for the barbecue was absolutely fabulous, extremely tender with delicious accompanying sauces. The service was very attentive. A must if you have a bit of time in Barcelona.

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.
