Photos: 1) Cordero Alechado (roast suckling lamb) 2) Great wine 3) Cochinillo Alechado (roast suckling pig) I would say that this restaurant is on the expensive side. However, as the saying goes: you will get what you pay for. The service was outstanding (Jordi Belles), the food was absolutely fantastic. We ordered the cochinillo alechado, cordero alechado and entrecôte.

Be sure to go to the location at Tibidabo. The building there is beautiful, as well as the food and service being excellent. Pricey.

The best part of the meal was the still water I ordered. My daughter said even the wine tasted like bad vinegar. I would not recommend this restaurant. The food was disgusting and our steaks did not even taste like beef. It was extremely expensive, definitely not worth the visit. A real letdown for our last night in Barcelona.

This place is absolutely amazing, only the building is worth the visit. All food is incredible but the lamb (lechazo de Aranda) is excellent. All kinds of meat are awesome.

Their lamb chops, cooked very simply in a wood-fired oven, are extraordinary. Architecture buffs should not miss this place, where they can see excellent examples of Guastavino tile work in an old mansion.

This restaurant is in an old modernism style house and is beautiful inside and outside. We went for Valentine's dinner and were very impressed by the starters and the wine.
