Neighbourhood: Eixample
Description: Welcome to 9nine Restaurant, located in the Eixample district of Barcelona surrounded by buildings of modernist architecture mixed with new techniques and materials, and the use of resources provided by the various traditional decorative techniques: Stuccos, Leaded Glass, Forge, Etc., The work of craftsmen at the service of the modernist architects. Restaurant with large windows, where the street light flood in our main dining room and caresses the other one, where you never feel overwhelmed; with a modern and contemporary decor. With a fully open kitchen, a kitchen that almost you can touch, and even talk to the Chef. In the 9nine we try to go back to those times, we specialize in a bare kitchen where you will eat what you order, good appetizers, prime cuts of meat, fresh fish and seafood, everything cook in our charcoal grill and a dash of other cultures. from my point of view and with a lot of respect for other chefs in this great city and after living in another countries for so many years and I thought Barcelona was missing another way to see and feel the restaurant business, where not only great chefs could open a restaurant and not die in the attempt, after observing people, I realized Barcelona was missing a place where the customer should feel like they’re at home, that customer expectations will be exceeded, with mixture within an atmosphere of relaxed and comfort. Therefore we have taken great importance in things that were once standard, products of high quality with minimal handling, a casual service, size suitable table size napkin, lighting, music and other things that surely if pay attention you will notice. A customer once said to me: Are you the best? Obviously NO, Are you the best in the gap you want to be? Obviously YES. There was no better way to explain it, and I really do not want to be the best, but the best in our category of restaurants where you can go every day of the week, "that´s it" a restaurant that not only you come for special events, but for your everyday life, where the quality of raw products to all and where the service is attentive but not heavy. Just one more thing, remember that if you do not like something, something seems wrong, Let us know, remember if I do not know , I can´t fix it. "Rustic, gutsy and simple". And that´s what we are.

Great meal here with family ( child aged 6). Top class from start to finish - We went for the set menu per person €35 pp and were not let down. The child's menu was excellent for us too - had the roast chicken - best ever.
Prawns, sea bass and salmon for adults served perfectly. Our waitress Fatima was an excellent host and could not do enough for us - even went to shop to get some treats for our child.
Faultless dining experience from start to finish.

These guys know what they are doing! Starting with the excellent service team. They were so friendly and took care of us from the moment we entered the restaurant. The owner, Christian, is also the head chef and really knows his trade. He comes out of the kitchen several times during the evening asking at almost every table if everything is good... So does the restaurant manager, a very nice lady. The food is outstanding. It's superb quality and very well prepared. Especially if you consider the value for money! I would have gladly payed more at the 9Nine in comparison to some other places in BCN where I would have gladly payed less.

Nothing to add really-just to reiterate the superb reviews that this place has received. 35 euro menu was well worth the money, food was quality- beautifully cooked and superbly presented. the wines, which were a part of the menu deal were excellent.
The staff were cheerful and attentive without being obtrusive. The chef even came to our table to ask if everything was ok.
One thing that we noticed was that there was no vegetarian choice. (apart from the mushroom starter)Luckily it did not affect us, but any vegetarians should be aware.

A magnificent meal in convivial surroundings - way way above anything else we’ve had in Barcelona, and we haven’t had cause to complain about any other, but this was rather special

The visit to 9 Nine was so good that like the name it had to be visited twice.

It is simply an outstanding restaurant offering great value for money in an exceptionally pleasant environment.

I don't normally have a three course meal, but at 9 you start with three generous tapas portions. Followed by 5 different main courses to choose from.

For me, the steak was delicious and all in all every ingredient was a delight to eat.
Note especially the green mustard!

Getting in on Monday night wasn't possible so a booking was made for Tuesday followed by a return booking for the Thursday evening. A real highlight of the Barcelona visit.

Do not be put off by the occasional comments like too much food, or there were other people there who were noisy and drunk. It is quite in order if you are full to leave a little you have paid for it after all! Far better than leaving and still feeling hungry.

I will be back to Barcelona and when I am 9Nine will definitely be top of the list for another excellent evening.

I cannot commend the staff , food and all round ambience more fully!

Enjoy you would be mad to miss it!

Trip advisor came up trumps again with 9-Nine, excellent 6-plate tapas, desert and wine prix fixe menu, great food, great service, and really good value. Speaking to diners sitting on adjacent tables, they also enjoyed their experience.
