A good breakfast selection in a nice setting: Restaurant Batuar @ Cotton House, Autograph Collection (3. January 2022)

The breakfast selection at the Cotton House remains absolutely decent – you get everything from fresh juices … … to pastries and cakes … … as well as the more traditional Spanish dishes like Jamon Iberico and tomato. So, they breakfast buffet isn’t exhaustive but it’s definitely nice and of high quality. The place is […]

When you go to Michelin starred restaurants of the same enterprise, it becomes repetitive: Restaurant Angle (2. January 2022)

When you go to Michelin starred restaurants of the same enterprise, it becomes repetitive: Restaurant Angle (2. January 2022)

I was looking forward to trying another 2 Michelin stars restaurant and their “Menú Degustació” (EUR 185.00) with a “wine pairing” (EUR 100.00). As in the Atempo the first course is served at the bar downstairs and not in the restaurant. The first course being “welcome appetizers prepared by our chefs at the bar (mojito)” […]

Decent traditional dishes to be enjoyed outside in the cold: Restaurant Vivanda (2. January 2022)

Decent traditional dishes to be enjoyed outside in the cold: Restaurant Vivanda (2. January 2022)

The Vivanda is a Bib Gourmand restaurant recommended by the Guide Michelin and that’s okay. However, what you get isn’t really mind-blowing in my humble opinion. The “calamares a la andaluza con mayonesa cítrica” (EUR 16.00) were rather basic and the calamar was quite chewy. The “tarro elaborado en casa de sardines en escabeche con […]

Supposedly the best seafood restaurant in Barcelona: Restaurant Botafumeiro (1. January 2022)

Supposedly the best seafood restaurant in Barcelona: Restaurant Botafumeiro (1. January 2022)

Finding a restaurant which is open on the 1st of January isn’t entirely easy, but luckily, the Botafumeiro was open that evening and was buzzing as it seems to be buzzing every day. Once seated down you’re served “chips and bread” (for which you pay EUR 2.95) and get the menu. The waiter is friendly […]

Delicious drinks in a nice atmosphere: Dry Martini Bar (1. January 2022)

It’s not easy to find a bar which is open on January 1st, but finally I found a place – booking in advance is highly recommended! They have a special selection of cocktails, so I decided to try their signature ones like the “Carnyvore (Pisco, Sechuan pepper, passion fruit juice, strawberry)” (EUR 23.00) which was […]

A nice experience to celebrate into 2022: Restaurant Atempo (31. December 2021)

If you’re looking to find a place last minute for NYE, you have to be lucky to secure a spot – which I was! The “NYE Menu” (EUR 185.00) and the “Wine Pairing” (EUR 100.00) were the go to option since there was no à la carte that evening.  When you enter the place, you […]

Walking into a rare find for a lunch bargain: Restaurant Casa Amàlia (8. August 2021)

The Casa Amàlia turned out to be a lucky find. It’s kind of hidden in a small side street between two other restaurants but it’s definitely worth visiting and it’s definitely recommended to book a table in advance. We were lucky as somehow there was still a table left. Lunch started with an “The Italian […]

A true bargain for a Michelin star experience: Restaurant Xerta (7. August 2021)

Luckily, it didn’t continue like it started. Upon arrival, we were brought to our table and then the waiting begun. It took them a solid 10 minutes to bring the menu and another 10 to take the order. Now, I get it, it’s busy, and all. But if you carry 1 Michelin star, that’s definitely […]
