After multiple warnings about my son's severe tree nut allergy, the Dos Palillos team served us a nut-filled dumpling as part of one of the courses. Lame excuses were given about misunderstanding our repeated warnings (in writing during booking and at the start of the meal to the servers). Really poorly handled by the restaurant. Ruined the rest of my... More

An option than you can't miss if you love Japaness food and you spend some days in Barcelona. You must book a table in advance. To have dinner there are two times: 19:30 or 22:30h. Menus are long and complet. My suggestion: it's better the 19:30h shift. All dishes are delicious and some of them surprising.

An interesting restaurant in a Boho suburb of Barcelona. Decoration was unique sitting in the bar overlooking the cooks that prepare the dishes. The Service very good The effort and imagination as well as the quality of the dishes was 8/10. The room was lucking the ventilation required when the kitchen is in the middle. The price was high compared... More

We visited the restaurant in February and we had made a reservation for a late dinner on the terrace. Despite sitting on the terrace we didn't have the option of ordering the a la carte menu. The tasting menu is quite challenging if you are not a fan of seafood but the quality of the food is great. The service... More

As a chef I took my now girlfriend here on our first date to show her what a michelin place was all about. Was very disappointed. None of the dishes had flavour and we both struggled to understand what they were trying to do with each dish. service was ok. Not very attentive.

I have been to quite a number of Michelin restaurants in France and New York, and never, never, have I been rushed thru a meal, especially a restaurant serving only tasting menus. So I was quite surprised when I was half way into my Nippon burger, and the next course was served. I told the server that I am still... More

It is so much fun to see the compositions and be surprised by the tastes. I recommend this place if you are willing to eat... More

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.
