Just lost its Michelin star – and rightly so: Restaurant Barra de Tapas by Carles Abellan @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

When I checked in at the W, I was told that they have a Michelin star restaurant on premise. Turns out, they had one and had just lost their star in 2020. And I think that shows. I went for the “white and cured anchovy marriage” (EUR 6.40) which was enjoyable because I really like […]

Decent breakfast selection right at the beach: Salt Restaurant & Beach Club @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

Decent breakfast selection right at the beach: Salt Restaurant & Beach Club @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

What I always like when staying in a W is the breakfast selection. I was told that the breakfast is served in two locations, the Salt as well as the Barra de Tapas and that the offer is the same. Only the next day, I found out that it isn’t entirely. The selection in the […]

An interesting back alley experience: Restaurant Passadis del Pep (10. January 2020)

I was recommended the Passadis del Pep, so I decided to give it a try. And frankly, overall, I liked the experience. it is a bit tricky to find the restaurant overall but once you’re in, they explain to you how the concept work, which is basically, they bring you a variety of different plates […]

Absolutely lovely local experience: Restaurant El Rinconcillo (3. January 2020)

Absolutely lovely local experience: Restaurant El Rinconcillo (3. January 2020)

Somehow, the El Rinconcillo is an institution in Sevilla – wherever you check for restaurant recommendations, the El Rinconcillo pops up. Now, if you go before 7pm, you’ll just get food at the counter and will have to ‘stand around’ to eat your food and drink your glass of wine. Therefore, I would recommend you […]

Good for breakfast before you queue at Real Alcazar: Restaurant Taberna El Papelón (3. January 2020)

Good for breakfast before you queue at Real Alcazar: Restaurant Taberna El Papelón (3. January 2020)

When you are looking for a place which serves a small snack in the morning, the Taberna El Papelón is rather perfect as it basically a little café where they have understood the concept of swift service (which is not absolutely normal in Spain). I asked for a tea and a “Bocadillo de Jamón Ibérico […]

Good but more one than two Michelin stars: Restaurant Bardal (2. January 2020)

Good but more one than two Michelin stars: Restaurant Bardal (2. January 2020)

In the little town of Ronda which is famous for it’s Greek-style white houses and is located quite a bit up in the mountains, there is more to see than just the atmosphere. They also have a Michelin-starred restaurant with two Michelin stars (definitely not something you’d expect there)! The Bardal requires a down payment […]

Fair for a quick stop: Café Puerta 2 (2. January 2020)

Given, almost nothing was open in the early morning, I was happy to stumble upon the Café Puerta 2 (named like that due to its vicinity to the second gate of the bull fight arena) because it was rather cold outside. The place is very simple but the waitress is friendly and swift in serving […]

Surprisingly lovely place in a hostel: Restaurant El Disparate (1. January 2019)

Surprisingly lovely place in a hostel: Restaurant El Disparate (1. January 2019)

The El Disparate was recommended by the Guide Michelin 2020 app. When I arrived there I was rather surprised as the restaurant is part of a hostel. Now, prejudice or not, I did not expect a restaurant recommended by the Guide Michelin to be located in a hostel. However, the fact that I got the […]
