This review is of the restaurant only. The welcome was very refined and elegant, a definite sign of things to come. We, my wife and I, were seated in a lounge on a lower floor and served champagne and presented with the menu. A 16 course, or 22 course prix fixe. We chose the 16 courses, were asked about food...

A pure moment of bliss and "rafinement" as french would say. The staff, The penthouse room, The spa, The room service were perfect. The cherry on the cake was the dinner at the 2 Michelin award winning Jordi Cruz restaurant a pure moment of heaven. I would say Congratulations to all we will come back.

The property itself is very cute and I enjoyed our balcony overlooking the garden very much. Our room was clean and quite spacious. We ate dinner at the Abac restaurant and the service was appalling we ate at 8 other michelin starred restaurants during our week in Spain; Abac and one other restaurant both had terrible, rude service.

We finished our 10 day tour of Spain with a lovely stay, spa treatments and dinner at ABaC. The room was very comfortable with nice linens, bath products. Dinner was decadent and delicious, starting with appetizers in the lounge, then a tour of the wine cellar and kitchen before dinner in the dining room.

Beautiful boutique hotel, with a great location. Not in the centre of everything, located in the older part of the town, but this suited us fine.

GASTRONOMY, ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN... A UNIQUE GOURMET EXPERIENCE ABaC Restaurant Hotel Monument 5* GL is located in Sarria-Sant Gervasi, the upper zone of Barcelona, with views to the Kennedy square and surrounded with the vegetation of La Tamarita gardens. Close to the most important points of the city. Work of the architect Antoni de Moragas, consists of two buildings integrated in a garden. The centennial building was refurbished due to its historical value and it was the old residence of Dona Madronita, an intellectual of the born Catalan bourgeoisie at the end of XIX century. She was the daughter of the famous pharmacist Dr. Andreu, and she was the wife of the North American Max Klein (president of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States and one of the introducers of the basketball in Spain). On the other hand, the new crystal pavilion is covered of lattices of wood and joined the garden. Landscape and architecture give themselves the hand in a space of pure lines.

Located in the newly constructed pavilion in direct contact with the garden, the interior and the exterior are found through large windows. It is a caprice of whites, in all tones. In a calm, neutral and elegant atmosphere, the sense of sophistication is shaped by the small details and the materials used, as well as a sophisticated combination of lights. The kitchen of 200 m2 has been designed by Joaquim Casademont.
