Tragaluz means skylight and this is an excellent choice if you're still on a design high from shopping at Vinçon or visiting Gaudí's Pedrera. The sliding roof opens to the stars in good weather, while the chairs, lamps, and fittings by Javier Mariscal (creator of 1992 Olympic mascot Cobi) reflect Barcelona's ongoing passion for playful design. The Mediterranean cuisine is traditional yet light and innovative. Luis de Buen's TragaFishh (an outpost from his restaurant
Fishhh!) is the downstairs oyster bar. The redesigned main dining room upstairs is reached via the kitchen, and the top floor is an informal space for coffee or an after-dinner drink.

Had been looking forward to going here, but while the place itself was perfect for a romantic dinner for 2, the food was a bit disappointing. My partner faired better then I did, but I was left with a "what's all the fuss about" feeling. In saying that it was not bad, just not as good as I hoped.
