Chef Jaume Bargués is beloved by Barcelona haute-cuisine fans. His no-frills, straight-up, fine Catalan cuisine dining repertoire was thriving before and during the molecular cuisine craze and shows every sign of continuing to do so as it all winds down. Winning dishes include lenguado relleno de setas (sole stuffed with mushrooms) and the lubina (sea bass) soufflé. The traditionally designed restaurant, pine-paneled and complete with a bar and a spacious-yet-intimate
dining room, is in the Hospital Clinic part of the Eixample.

...slightly out of the way and not terribly busy on a Monday night in November. Elegant contemporary dining room. Attentive unobstrusive service. The food: awesome! Lovely 3 piece amuse bouche, did the tasting menu featuring truffles...up there with the best in NY and France. Left very satisfied and impressed. Relatively pricey for the rest of Barcelona, and, boo hoo, the dollar was at a low relative to the euro, but still, a terrific value,
easily 50% more in NY or Paris! If wants on the plate and on your palate what's important to you don't miss this place. Hope to go back and share it with my foodie friends!
