    Well greeted and served by the staff here in a small but classy hotel restaurant. All of the food was well presented and delicious from the A La Carte menu. I had the beef ravioli to start followed by the duck meatballs, very yummy. I was able to us my Yums too so got €25 off of the bill which almost paid for the wine. Will be back to check out the set menu as that looks good value for money too.

    I had the best experience celebrating my boyfriends birthday here. The service, food and ambiance was a 10/10, absolutely perfect! They made the night even more special with a birthday surprise. I will come back next time I am in Barcelona !

    A pleasantly quiet place with attentive yet not overbearing service and perfectly prepared food. The sweet potato & green beans salad was heavenly! The menu lists allergens and indicates vegetarian dishes. I hope the carob coulant can be baked dairy free in the future.

    Excellent, it was absolutely lovely. I do not know why the Grand Hotel Central consignor does not recommend it. The consignor states he does not know since he never ate there. Best value we had in all of Barcelona for best food, price and atmosphere.

    Ok hotel food a little bland. 18 euros for 4 duck meatballs main dish but no sides or garnish whatsoever. They were tasty but a veg or potato would have been nice. Also our bill didn’t give us the discount we were supposed to get for booking online through The Fork which seemed sketchy.

    City Bar & Restaurant - Grand Hotel Central 5*

    Dear Meredith, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with The Fork readers. We're very sorry that your experience at the City Bar & Restaurant did not exceed your expectations. Our Chef creates each dish in a special way in order to have different options and presentations. The duck meatballs presentation comes with the garnish both below and on top of the meatballs (pears and hazelnut praline). However, we understand your desire and we would definetely take it into account for future changes on our a la carte menu. As for the The Fork discount, it was included in your bill, this discount only covers food items, not beverages or tasting menu. And this discount has been applied on each of the dishes you had that evening, a 30% of each item. If you are still in Barcelona, or for your next visit, we would love to welcome you back at our City Restaurant and offer you a wonderful experience. Best regards, Quimey Vañes Guest Experience

    This restaurant was absolutely amazing. The service was brilliant, the food delicious and the ambiance brilliant. I would recommend this restaurants so many times. The discount that we got at 20% for what was offered to us was beyond our expectations.

    The kind of restaurant one expects from a 5 stars hotel: impeccable service and refined, well presented dishes. We loved the presentation of the steak tartare where the cook comes to your table to prepare it. I recommend it.

    A relaxing space with a good welcoming service and nice dishes. We had the executive menu that gives you a broad choice of the regular menu. We had mushrooms with gambas and foie gras as starters. In the super tasty mushrooms there was a little bit of sand, they are difficult to clean, I know. The mains were good; a steak tartare and a fish stew. Dessert also tasty a foam of crema catalana and a cheese cake. A bit formal but nice.

    Really expensive for what it is. The tomato tartar for example, a tiny portion of tomato with almost nothing of avocado and it cost 14€. Then the Vermut, 10€ for a glass. Not worth it.

    We went here because we were staying at the Grand Hotel Central and the restaurant was inside the hotel. The service was great. Food and wine were pretty good. Set menu was reasonably priced.

    Lovely restaurant with excellent food and even better service. The restaurant could use some music as the silence was a little uncomfortable.

    We had a very nice evening. The chefs menu was great. The first 2-3 courses came in very quickly after each other (our plates were just finished and the next was already arriving), so that made us feel like we were in a hurry. The last ones were better distributed over time. Overall very good food and service!
