First, fire the hostess. After you get past that, the food is wonderful. Highly recommend the burrata, cheese carpaccio, coconut and scallop soup, secret pork and the 18 hour lamb. Prices very reasonable given the quality of the food. Wonderful location in the center of the barrio gotic. Enjoy

We managed to get into PLA restaurant for one of our meals (our anniversary meal, our friends were also celebrating their 35th) and this has an excellent ambiance and the food was excellent, however the two ladies both ordered the cod which we were told was slow cooked at 60 degrees, unfortunately it was not at all to their liking...

Twelve of us were in Barcelona celebrating a 160th Birthday! (Two 50th and one 60th). This restaurant has a very good well deserved reputation and was packed when we sat down at 10pm. As we were a large table we chose from the group menu, which was smaller but plenty of choice for all. The starter consisted of a selection... More

The food was great, as well the wine. You need to make reservation before, but they speak english, so it won't be a problem.

Our hotel recommended Pla for our first (jet-lagged) dinner in Barcelona. We were very pleased. The restaurant is I. The charming Gothic section of the city, close to where we were staying. We were seated upstairs overlooking the whole restaurant. It is a very attractive space, which added to the ambience. The food was outstanding. We ordered three dishes for... More

This is a cozy little restaurant tucked away on an small side street in the Gothic Quarter. It is a beautiful place, very romantic setting. The service was excellent. We did have to wait for our reserved table for a 1/2 hour before being seated, but this was not an issue as we sat at the bar and had a... More

Trendy restaurant in the Gothic area of Barcelona. Food is interesting and good .We found the service excellent too. The head waiter went through the menu with us and explained everything including the wine list. Worth visiting even though it is a little more expensive than the average restaurants in town.

Excellent food and nice location with mediocre service. A bit noisy, which some might like but not the best for having an intimate conversation

Atmosphere is nice here, a cozy spot and great with friends or for a romantic dinner. However, it was pricey and the service was not that great.

Really cozy, hidden away in an alley. Relaxed and warm atmosphere. Great food when you tire of tapas.
