The service and the ambiance was good, and the presentation was a five. However, they need to focus more on the taste and the flavors of the food. I expected a little more from a two Michelin star restaurant - it was good but not...More

We dined better at ABaC then in other theorectically superior Michellin starred restaurants. The region and setting are gorgeous, service was perfect. Food was inventive and tasty; we loved every single plate. Good wine list. A must try while in Barcelona.

The service and ambience were outstanding as would be expected. The food was very good but not all courses were "out of this world". Perhaps too much focus on art and presentation than the food quality itself.

The beautiful minimalist setting of the ABaC Hotel and restaurant reflects the hi-tech approach to the creativity of the young, handsome and personable chef Jordi Ruiz. The magical twenty two course lunch requires 3 hours which fly by quickly. The extensive menu of vegetable,fish and...More

We had the longer tasting menu which was very good but not extraordinary. I expected more from a 2 Michelin stars restaurant. The place is very nice and service is excellent. Food is good but not memorable.

I'd give it a miss if I were you. The chef who created the original ABaC now has his own place in Barcelona. It is called Celeri and I think you will find it a much more rewarding experience. His ethos is based on pleasing... More

Description
Our attentive yet friendly service create a professional but relaxed atmosphere, which makes ABaC holder of 3 *** Michelin. In 2000 ABaC Restaurant opened its doors in his first location, Carrer Rec 79 in Barcelona. In May 2008 changed to his new address in Avenida Tibidabo, 1. The gastronomy is the fundamental axis of the project. The restaurant awarded with 2** Michelin, and nominated by The Best Restaurant 2011 in Catalonia by the Catalan Academy of Gastronomy, can seat up to 56 diners. 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. It is a black container, in which stainless steel furniture takes all leadership, a
