Fodor's Review

Artist, aesthete, and chef Carles Abellán playfully reinterprets traditional Catalan favorites and creates new ones at this artfully decorated dining spot on Carrer Comerç. Try the arroz d'ànec amb foie (rice with duck and foie gras). For dessert, don't miss the postmodern version of the traditional Spanish after-school snack of chocolate, olive oil, salt, and bread. Abellán trained under superstar Ferran Adrià and is as original as the master; the best way to experience his creativity is to throw budget to the winds and order one of the two tasting menus (€92 and €116, without wine).

Comerç 24 Review

This was one of the worst dining experiences of my life…I say that considering I almost died. First ambience…run of the mill uninspired interior would have looked good in a 1980’s soap opera. As well as looking dated and a bit kitsch (though I think they were trying to be sophisticated) they quality of construction was disturbingly poor with transitions from one material to another unresolved and sloppily constructed. Service…the wait

staff was very good but they took themselves way too seriously and did not seem to have much passion for their work. The Maître de was very arrogant and was quit astonished when he asked how we enjoyed the meal and we told him exactly how little we enjoyed it…his reply was that the food was probably too adventurous for us (laughable if you know us). Food…the bread was good. The plates were contrived and over salted and I had the pleasure of paying additional for the truffle special only to be served an oyster covered in truffle that I described to my wife as tasting like “a turd rubbed on the back of a urinal”. Regretfully about two hours later the turd exacted its revenge as I projectile vomited for about four hours (and then recovered for the next two days).

Comerç 24 Review

Food is innovative and tasty, although rather pretentious. Foam with everything. The menu is outrageously overpriced -- the cheapest set menu being 68 euros and the typical tapas dish being about 20 - 25 euros. Portions are miniature. You will end up eating more bread than anything else. The service is disdainful and haughty. We were instructed that we should order "5 to 7 dishes" in a way that showed contempt for our budget or preference. On suggesting

that our red wine was served rather cold, we were told with a sneering curled lip that 16 degrees was the perfect temperature. If you like delicious tapas, are not very hungry, and dont mind contemptuous service, this is the place for you.
