The food from the starters to the end was perfect. Deserts a bit less. The kitchen is somewhere between French and Spanish. The service and the place itself are so so perfect!!!

Description
Chef, Romain Fornell. Michelin starred. The culinary style of Chef Romain Fornell and his team is contemporary cuisine, reinterpreting tradition and vanguard in his own creations. He is known for his daring, passion and balance. Caelis is a restaurant with tasting menus (we have two options). Plus, at midday from Wednesday to Saturday, we offer a lunch menu (Caelis Menu - €39 VAT included) that changes weekly. The restaurant has two separate spaces: on one side, the dining room with space for up to 24 guests at tables of varying sizes. On the other, an open kitchen with a horseshoe-shaped bar and stools where 12 more guests can watch everything that goes on behind the scenes. (When making your booking, let us know if you prefer to sit at the bar in front of the kitchen or a table in the dining room so we can take this into account. However, we cannot guarantee your seating location until we know exactly how many diners we will have for that service and their requirements. The restaurant and its culinary selection are not appropriate for small children. We ask you to please not bring children under 10. Thank you for your understanding. Romain Fornell opened Caelis in 2004 and earned a Michelin star the very next year. In 2014, Caelis was named one of the Gold Standard Restaurants 2014 by Condé Nast Traveler. In 2017, Caelis moved to Hotel Ohla Barcelona. The move is also a turning point in the restaurant's culinary offering and this new era will be more contemporary and less classical.
