Searched for a long time for this highly recommended establishment only to conclude it has "shuffled off its mortal coil". Hope this review prevents other trip advisor fans searching in vain.

We had just concluded a tour with the Ho Ho bus and looked around for something to eat. The young guy saw us looking at menus for the Maylex and neighboring eateries. He as he should have came out and asked if he could help. We went in and we had some difficulty with their lack of English and vice... More

This is a very nicely designed restaurant with a clean contemporary look. There are only a few tables closely spaced together but it wasn't noisy or umcomfortable. Our waitress was fluent in English and was very helpful. We had a few of their Tapas items for lunch plus a suggested appetizer of guacamole and tuna. All were very good.

This was by far my favorite restaurant while visiting Barcelona. The location was prime. From the second we entered they made us feel like we were part of the family. They were patient, answered all our questions and help us pick the perfect dishes. I will definitely return there on my next visit.

Thanks to tripadviser we found this ideal bistrot. We had great lunch menu at a very reasonable price for the excellent and prime quality that they offer. We returned the next day for dinner and we ordered à la carte the "duck with orange" that was tasty, beautifully presented with such an amable and professional service! We highly recommend this...

We went for dinner a couple of days ago with my wife celebrating our anniversary. We loved the Risottos. I had the mushroom risotto and my wife the vegetable risotto. As a second course I had the burger and it was so tasty. One of my favorites! We shared a cheesecake for dessert and it had delicious violet jam. We... More

We visited this restaurant mainly because it was rated #5 in Barcelona (even though they had less than 30 reviews). Atmosphere was great and all the staff were friendly and attentive. First let down was that they were out of all types of risotto that night. This was a total disappointment to me because after reading the menu online, that's... More

We loved everything about this restaurant. A small scale venue with good waitresses/waitors, and the food was excellent. The fish was fresh and "the best steak in the city" really is the best one. Can highly recommend this super cozy restaurant!

We had lovely evening at Maylex. Staff really made us feel comfortable and welcome. they also speak excellent English. Food was very nice, but my lobsterrisotto was a bit too salty, so I give a small minus of that.

We went there for dinner because of the raving reviews found on Tripadvisor. In retrospect I am not quite sure how the high rankings go together with the experience we had at the Maylex Bistrot. While the service was great (very friendly atmosphere, helpful and going the extra mile) the food was simply not. Our appetizer was average and very,... More
