We found this restaurant highly recommended on TripAdvisor and weren’t disappointed. They offer a Tapas type menu, the food was outstanding, presentation terrific and service was wonderful. Would go back without any hesitation. Definitely a 10/10????
The real issue is with the food. We had 6 different tapas dishes and the only one that was good was the ceviche. All of the other ones were strangely bland, no spices seemed to be used at all. For example the pulled pork came as little sandwiches between two very oily crackers, and the oil was the only thing you could taste. We went here because on TripAdvisor there was a ranking claiming it was the best restaurant in Barcelona. So incredibly wrong you have to assume that the writer was being paid off.
The service and staff made the experience. The tapas we ordered were delicious! Unfortunately there was an issue in the kitchen so half the menu was unavailable. Based on what we did order and the atmosphere I would go back again!
Fab sangrias and delicious, unique tapas
Went here for my girlfriends birthday and was truly disappointed. The service started off pretty normal then significantly got horrible. We were sitting out on the terrace aka side walk in front of the restaurant as it was a nice night. By the way they Charge you a 10% fee for that. We were completely forgotten about which was odd seeing that we were surrounded by others who seemed be getting serviced just fine. We ordered 5 tapa dishes with one forgotten till we mentioned it. Our starting waiter was not our ending waiter who by the way completely ignored us as while we were leaving. Super weird night and service. They weren’t even busy on a Monday NIGHT.
What a nice place to eat and have fun. The owner or manager was very kind, really good food, tasty food with a lot of love. The space is very good, the deco, perfect place to have dinner for two.
Booked this place online and have to say it was amazing. It is a small cosy restaurant what dishes out big flavours. Best staff we met on our holiday.
Amazing food and great service! A little warm in the room, but nothing we could not live with
Lovely food, great service and very friendly staff, really enjoyed our evening and would definitely go again. Using trip advisor to find this place was so accurate and made our selection of where to eat very easy. Booking was so simple with confirmation sent straight away.
Brilliant little restaurant. The service was perfect, friendly with great knowledge and recommendations. Food was fantastic. Smoked Negroni ????????
We couldn't have chosen a better one! Food, cocktails and service are a 10!! 100% recommended! Muchas gracias por todo.
I have been to Barcelona many times and have favorite restaurants that I enjoy returning to. This was my first time at Albania and was very impressed. The staff were above and beyond as far as kindness and service. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. We were able to dine outdoors which was very nice. It’s not a large restaurant so would recommend booking ahead. Intend to go back on my next visit.
The tapas were amazing and the service was excellent. We had a large group so I secured a reservation. Our table was ready when we arrived at 8. The food came out promptly. All of the dishes were tasty and creative. Will definitely be coming back!
What a great place for Tapas. Never would have found it if my lil brother hadn’t been there first. Best is the simple menu -not the usual list of hundreds to choose from. We ordered 3 light bites, 3 mains and the special desert. Each dish was just amazing - I’d describe them as Spanish with an Eastern/Oriental influence. Service is personal and the desert is prepared for you on the table (literally). Definitely go again next time in Barcelona.
Dishes were super delicious
Excellent in every regard! Innovative, delicious tapas. Do not miss the “chocolandia” dessert!
Very good and professional team
The Abanik was very welcoming, the food was fantastic (that tomatoe and basilic ice cream was a killer!) and plentiful (we had to push a little to finish everything). My companion couldn't eat mushrooms and they changed dishes despite réservations to something she could eat, which was really cool of them. They deserve every best recommendations given to them!
