Thank goodness my Catalan is not great. If I had realized it was a culinary school I probably wouldn't have gone. But was I surprised! Great value for fantastic food. It was a wonderful experience and the students were so polite and attentive. They did a great job preparing, presenting, and serving the food. Highly recommend this restaurant, and supporting...

We ate in the training school restaurant upstairs. It was fantastic. The choice on the menu had something for everyone and the portions were generous. We had a glass of Cava to welcome us and had a couple of bottles of wine and water for the table. The price was exceptional value for the meal we had. I will definately... More

Had dinner here this evening with 5 friends and I just couldn't wait to post my review. This place is incredible! The food is of high quality, extremely well presented, and the dishes are very innovative.

I was invited there with some colleagues and it was really a wonderful gustatory experience. Far away from the habitual tapas and fish food, we enjoyed there the original taste of each ingredient. Friendly and quick service too. Go there also if the location far from the center in a suburb makes it less easy accessible.

This is a true gem as it offers the experience of fine dining for a great price. Lovely food and it was truly interesting to observe how the trainees behaved while serving us. Definitely recommended!

My husband and I went to L'escola for lunch before leaving Barcelona to go home. What a perfect ending to our great time here! The students were fabulous and went out of their way to speak English and help us understand the menu. They started us off with a complimentary glass of Cava and a delicious appetizer complements of the... More

The previous reviews were very good so we thought we would try, but it was a disappointment, the food was oily, under seasoned, under cooked and lukewarm. However the staff were lovely and very attentive , service was good although English was limited . I assume we were just unlucky - it is a catering school and everyone has to... More

Restaurant that is part of a hotel school so staff are all students (except the manager who is the teacher). Always outstanding food and value for money. Service is friendly and can be a touch slow but it is a school restaurant so very good for trainees.

We were staying in the area and found this restaurant via tripadviser. We went for the lighter smaller menu downstairs as we were eating quite late. This is a catering school where the students practice their skills in the kitchen and with the customers. Lovely modern restaurant and was very busy. Our waitress did struggle with explaining the menu to... More

Top notch food and service at the fraction of what you would be expected to pay and what you ought to pay for food of this quality. Definitely going to go back here again !!!!
