I find it relaxing to dine at El Japones because of its inviting contemporary interiors. Service was not bad though not particularly memorable either. Staff do not go out of their way to make you feel very welcome although they were not rude either. What...More

Food ranges from average to excellent. Average service. You can also enjoy oysters if you like them, which is not our case. Tables are very close. Be aware that they don't offer coffee.

Average sushis from average quality products. Very nice atmosphere but very poor service (waiting times too long and rude waiters). Be objective when you say “japanese” and “excellent” in the same sentence...!

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
