Nice, modern restaurant with unique approach to presentation and menu. Good choice of dishes at reasonable prices. We asked for sangria and the waiter was pleased to make it for us despite it not being on the menu. I think this place has a good wine cellar but as we are not real wine connoisseurs, we enjoyed the delicious sangria. We selected two of the tapas for our starter, both delicious chicken dishes. For mains we had a wagyu burger and duck maigret, again both fantastic. Only one dessert was ordered which was tiramisu, and again couldn't fault. The service was friendly and very efficient, and we were offered a cava as a house drink at the end of the meal. We were staying in a nearby town called Sant Antoni de Villamajor which onky had a couple of restaurants, and this was advised by a local of the village. It was well worth the 20 minute drive and we will definitely return when in Barcelona again for the Grand Prix. Excellent restaurant, some of the tastiest food we have had.

This is a cute restaurant that I was a bit suspicious whether it would have any substance to it. Boy was I surprised when plate after plate was unique and fun to guess what the ingredients were. We had a couple of their "specialty" croquetas: duck and small squid (chipiron). They both were fantastic, but the chipiron was unbelievable. The texture was awesome-just as a good croqueta should be and the flavor phenomenal. We had the hummus and the "burrata" salad. The hummus had excellent black olives and chunks of sardines. The burrata was as expect, fresh and good. We had a couple mini hamburgers that also were tasty and finished with the coulant with mandarin and mint icecream. The coulant was good but lacked the liquid center but the icecream was awesome. Our waiter was really professional and helpful and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is interested in quality and original food. I swear the croqueta was the best ever...

We were introduced to this great place by a friend who lives in the neighborhood. S.Celoni is not what you call a touristic place, but this restaurant is worth a detour if you'd be visiting Barcelona.
Interior is modern and contemporary but yet breaths a rich tradition of great food and wine. Dishes are creative interpretations of e.g. a tortilla con patatas or grilled squid, but don't expect the traditional tapas.
Very interesting wine selection where you can make some discoveries - local winemakers who share the passion for wine made in harmony with nature. Ask e.g. if you can try the Jucamulla or Sumoll wine made by Isidre..
We spent a great deal of the afternoon there, even if it was a beautiful spring day in March..

I first visited the place in a family dinner and it has become a reference since then so we're enjoying this restaurant quite often. The quality of the food it's excellent and they have an amazing cellar with lots of high quality wines both locals and from foreign regions. When coming to prices, it's a very balanced restaurant, what you pay it's worth in regard of the quality for what you eat and drink..... (I always finish with a nice Gin&Tonic ...They also have wide range of premium Gins)..
