We've been coming here for the past 15 years, probably once a month on average . Shibui has always been our favorite Asian in Barcelona but no longer.....despite the menu seeming the same, dish after unrecognizable dish came out, serving the same tired old, same-tasting...More

About 15 years ago, when I still lived in Barcelona, and Shibui was in its start up face, it was a pioneer in fine Japanese cuisine. A part from maybe at the time "El Japonés" in Passatge de la Concepció, Shibui didn't have much competition...More

Too expensive for the food you get. It is served as a mess. Not so much variation. Too little and the waiters don't speak English. They keep smiling and are friendly. They don't have a English menu. Never go backMore

Best sushi I've ever had. The food is amazing, and beautifully presented, the space and decoration are also expectacular! I RECOMEND 100%.

We have been in the restaurant many times and it has always been a very good experience. The quality of the neguri and the sashimi is high. The toro is always very nice, particularly the one which is slightly grilled. The personnel is friendly although...More

The welcome to the restaurant is terrible. There were at least two receptionists who supposed to attend each guest. But these two ladies were not even able to keep up with two clients. It was very disappointing, annoying..as 20mins without any gestures to be welcomed...More

It is not just another japanese, Shibui is one of the few japanese resautants in Barcelona serving high quality sushi in a zen atmosphere. Rolls, makis and nigiris are very good, but the toro tartars and sashimis are gorgeous. If you are a group from...More

Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

SHIBUI R
Apreciada Florencia, tines todaa la razon, el Shibui, referencia en Barcelona de restaurantes Japoneses, uno de los más antiguos y por donde pasan innumerables famosos todos los días, no es un restaurante barato. Pagar 36 euros por cabeza teniendo en cuenta que el pescado que tiene el Shibui, es posiblemente junto al Koy Shunka de Barcelona el mejor que hay, lo consideramos muy razonable, dadas las características de nuestro establecimiento. Nosotros no hemos entrado en las guerras de descuentos y menús, esto es de sobra conocido por nuestros clientes y amigos. De todas formas, quedamos a tu entera disposición y si un día nos visitas otra vez, estaremos encantados de esplicarte las diferencias entre el pescado que comes en el Shibui y otros que puedas encontrar más baratos. Recibe un cordial saludo de la dirección.

Alex A, Mi comentario solo decía que para opinar del " Rest. Shibui ",en positivo , y para contrarrestar una opinión reciente de un cliente negativa, no hacia falta esconderse con un seudónimo. Simplemente decir "soy un trabajador de shibui ", "soy la RR.PP." ...... El engaño es hacerse pasar por un cliente siendo trabajador del restaurante. Esta es mi denuncia. Decir la verdad de un comentario y ahora Tripadvisor saca mi comentario. ¿Es mentira lo que dije ?. No. Entonces ?
