Waiters don't know their job: they serve even if you did not finish the plate, No words, mono sillabic.... Food is ... Not better than 1000 other japanese restaurant. I really never come here and think this restaurant is overrated!!

Pretty disappointed with this restaurant after the first visit. We understand this is Spain not Japan so a little variation in presentation or ingredients are acceptable. However, when the "tempura no moriawase" we ordered looked like kakiage with the prawns, squid and vegetable fried together in normal batter (see picture) AND the next table's Ebi tempura has the correct tempura...

I was very impressed with the sushi here at Yen Barcelona. My visit to Spain is 2 weeks and I have been to Yen twice already. Service was great and the prices are reasonable. Food was excellent and I would definitely recommend Yen to friends!

My boyfriend and I ate here on a Sunday night around 2330.We ordered the mixed skewer which was tasty but overpriced for the portion at nearly 8euros.This was followed with roast chicken in their own sauce, which was full of gristle and sadly nothing roasted about it, the sauce was also overpowering. What baffled us the most was that the... More

I was there with my girlfriend. It was tuesday at around 22:30. The place was completely empty. Only me and my girlfriend. The waitress didn't speak any English at all. But we managed to order anyway. I ordered fried rice with duck (5.9€). And my girlfriend ordered grilled tuna with their own sauce (9,80€). The food was very, very good.... More

The restaurant Yen was in the neighborhood we were staying at for our trip to Barcelona. It is very close to the Metro line Fontana you basically exit the metro and turn right and you will pass by it shortly. Excellent value for the quality of food!! We went twice because we enjoyed the food!!

My wife and I had tempura, sushi and duck fried rice. The tempura was thinly sliced and lightly breaded, very tasty. The sushi was also very good with fresh, delicious tuna. The duck fried rice was really excellent. Full of pieces of gingery duck and egg, fried to perfection. The prices are very reasonable and the service was friendly and... More

I've eaten at this restaurant about four or five times now, and I really like it. My boyfriend and I love Japanese food, which can be quite expensive in Barcelona, and I think that you get your best value for your money here. It's not a super-elegant place, but it's nice and clean, and the staff is friendly - although... More

Amongst the many Sushi restaurants of Barcelona you can find maybe only two or three that are really nothing more than a little above average. Then, if you take my advice you'll discover the delightful Yen. Pretty new (Im not sure when it opened) and sitting slightly inocuos on busy main road. This gem serves the very best Japanese food...

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
