This is an amazing restaurant. Lovely setting, dark atmosphere, and nice decoration. The food, wine and service were outstanding. All the dishes that we tried were delicious. The high quality of food is reflected in every dish. Also, the selection of wines is great. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

The staff speak good English and have an English language menu. The cuisine is modern catalan and the cooking is good. There is a limited... More

High quality in service (excellent host), beverages and meals... At a price ! Interesting value vs. some European capitals but just average for Barcelona. Bread being charged somehow misplaced for such level. Cosy decoration and excellent background music.

We went to Restaurant Pla at the recommendation of a work colleague who said it was great. We checked the Trip Advisor reviews before going and got a bit nervous about all the recent negative feedback, but decided to trust our friend instead. What a mistake! The only good things about the place where the wine list (we had a... More

Warm, intimate, cosy, it offers cuisine inspiredby the Mediterranean but without leaving outinfluences from other cultures.A young and carefree service and an innovative cuisine where,salads, meats, fish and vegetarian options make up a constantlychanging menu thus making it difficult for you to chooseyour favourite dish.
