We paid 20 Euros for what can only be described as burnt steak, the food served to us looked just awful, oh the 20 euros did include a sprite.

We came here after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor and had a great experience. The tempura chili octopus was wonderfully creative and yummy. It just had a little too much dough. The lubina was fresh, juicy and perfectly cooked. The cheesecake is a must....More

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the

Restaurant created on the desire to offer a Swiss-styled service, with a local personality. The cuisine is international, though highly influenced by French and Italian cuisines; The key is the use of fresh local products in home-made dishes. One can chose from our selection of dishes or try out the tasting menu created by Chef. The restaurant is divided on two floors, one being ideal for groups up to aprox. 50 people.
