Great discreet service, timely serving, tables are a little close to each other so we could hear conversations from all sides which was distracting, but overall a wonderful recommended experience.

Staying just round the corner I wandered to Balthazar for a final meal in Barcelona. I chose the 'Menu' which was extremely good value....Starter, Main, Dessert, 1/4 bottle wine, bottle of water, bread for Euro20.95.... Fish soup was my chosen starter and it was tasty but not fantastic.... I loved my main of tuna loin on a bed of beansprouts... More

Tables were packed in a little tightly, but we had enough space so no problem. Service was prompt, and seemed friendly enough. Starters were very nice indeed - I recommend the deep fried aubergines with honey, amazing! The main courses were utterly gorgeous! I had the swordfish which was served with avacado mash, and was so tender you could cut... More

During a 3 day visit to the city with the family and 2 mothers-in-law, Balthazar was something of a random choice as we didn't have any particular knowledge of the restaurant scene in Barcelona. In short, we were highly impressed with every aspect. It's a lovely big and airy venue with an energising atmosphere, friendly and helpful service, excellent food... More

The tapas are really good, especially their own version of patatas bravas, the crunchy aubergine and the calamari! Very affordable (as in a bottle of wine for ~8EUR!) and the place itself is quite nice and only a short walk from Passeig de Gracia.

We ordered the burgers for mains & also desserts. Burger was good but desserts were great. Tiramisu was excellent. Lovely red wine sangria. Good service in large nicely laid out dining room.

Both the restaurant and the menu looked great so we were looking forward to a fabulous meal. Both my selections were off the menu that night but unfortunately no one had told our waitress.

Had dinner here on our last night and enjoyed a tasty meal. I had the calamari, the portion was massive, followed by grilled prawns. All very delicious and reasonably priced.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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 exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
