A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Ubicado en pleno Gayxample barcelonés, la estética de este restaurante-lounge es todo un desafío tanto al minimalismo imperante como a esa estética chic-industrial que se ha puesto de moda gracias a Lázaro Rosa-Violán, así como al rollo reciclado-vintage que encontramos en numerosos establecimientos. Accés es barroco puro, pero barroco contemporáneo: grandes lámparas, sillas rococó, sofás Chester, espejos, partes de las paredes forradas en cuero, una iluminación osada en tonos lilas y parafernalia por todas partes.

Sus platos, por supuesto, siguen la línea este dechado de sofisticación sin barreras estéticas que respiramos nada más cruzar su puerta. Accés tiene una carta corta y apetitosa, con platos que llegan a nuestras mesa con una presentación impecable y orgullosos de huir de las etiquetas y el encorsetamiento. Porque aquí encontramos desde un jamón ibérico a una sopa de cebolla, un ceviche, un arroz negro o un tiramisú, eclecticismo en estado puro que encaja a la perfección con un ambiente en el que conviven extranjeros y autóctonos, los cuales probablemente acaben haciendo buenas migas en su zona de coctelería.


Nada de abandonar el local tras la cena: hay que consultar su carta de cócteles y quedarse a tomar la penúltima.

    This was an incredible restaurant. The staff was super friendly, the food was absolutely delicious, and the atmosphere was great. The open kitchen makes it great to see the dishes prepared thank you very much!

    Food was excellent, service was dismal. Waiter sat us at the table, took our drink and food order, then was never to be seen again. We were not asked about the food, asked if we wanted another drink, nothing. When we finally sat for 25 minutes without a drink, and no one was stopping at our table, we decided to skip dessert and just get the bill. The person who got our bill claimed that the computer was down and the ticket system they use was not working. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t stop by the table and check up on us. I would give them the benefit of the doubt, and return again. The food was excellent and overall was a decent experience.

    We had such a great menu and experience in this restaurant. It was a pleasure for all of us and the stuff was amazing. I really can recommend this place for a great food experience and a special night. We wanted to go there the next day again because it was so great <3

    Me and my girlfriend visited Acces in august 2019 after reading great reviews online. We ordered in total six dishes, in which all held an excellent standard! The processing of the ingredients and flavour combination was spot on! The staff was friendly and attentive, and the locale had a modern yet lovely atmosphere. Next time we are in Barcelona we will be back, because it is without a doubt this restaurant will endure the competition of the other 9 000 restaurants in this fine city. See ya Daniel and Hilde

    The restaurant is easily located in the trendy district near Universitat. The food is refined and staff is very helpful. The decoration is not worn out but outdated

    The service was great when servers acknowledged us, however it was uncertain who our main server was, alongside being sat in the corner and out of view which, understandably, makes serving that table more tricky. Other than that, food and value were amazing, will definitely come again!

    This is a very pleasant restaurant for full meals (as opposed to tapas) serving a wide range of delicious dishes in a Catalan idiom with fusion touches. Everything, from the amuse bouche through the bread and oil to the starters and mains was first class and beautifully presented. Prices are competitive considering the quality and setting. We liked it so much we went twice in three days.
