Desde que pones un pie en la puerta, descubres que Medusa no es un restaurante al uso. Aquí se viene a cenar y a experimentar con todos los sentidos. En su interior, encontrarás el medusario más grande de Europa y una sala de incubación en la que podrás ver su cuidado y su cría. También te recibirán sus elegantes mesas de ónix que van cambiando de color, al igual que sus medusas, dependiendo del ambiente. Y sus expertos cocineros te sorprenderán con un exquisito costillar de ternera gold Nebraska, con un salmón noruego a baja temperatura con wasabi y tempura de leguminosas y piquillo o con una lubina de estero, coca de mini setas, cebolla morada, salvia y aceite de avellanas. ¡Impresionante!


Si te gustan las presentaciones diferentes, prueba el ajo blanco de palmito que llega en un originalísimo plato con forma de cáctus.

    I had the best experience at Medusa. The interior was elegantly designed with an underwater theme, felt like an underwater kingdom. Even the bathroom was beautiful and intricate. There were also tanks of jellyfish!! The Guinea Fowl I was recommended was absolutely divine, the perfect crispy skin with juicy tender meat paired with well seasoned vegetables. Music taste matched the ambience very well. Already planning a second trip here during my short stay in Barcelona!

    We were very happy to have diner here. The buratta was a delight and the rest was also from very good quality. We liked our professional host tonight and if our dutch friends go to Barcelona we will recommend this restaurant. Last but not least: the interior with the real yelly fish is the most crazy interior we have ever seen. In a good way! Must see! Thank you for having us.

    Opulent interior, the huge tank with floating jelly fish was a nice touch. A restaurant is dependant on its staff and for us the staff were not quite polished enough to say professional. The beef tartar starter was very good as was the steak for mains, but watch out for the lobster. Its an exaggerated canape, what you get is not what it says on the menu, you end up with 5 little blobs of something that is supposed to be lobster with some wild mushrooms on the side. We refused the lobster and shared the steak instead. the staff were understanding and there as no issue in returning the dish. We got discount on this meal which helped make the whole experience quite enjoyable. I'd give it 7.5 out of 10, need to work on service levels a little and that lobster dish needs a rethink!

    Medusa is a really nice restaurant. Décor was amazing. Food was correctly priced but would be nice to see more options. The bar man made the yummiest cocktail for me when I asked for something sweet and fruity. We went at 9PM as we thought it would be lovely at this time but found out people in Barcelona don't go out until 11/12PM so it was pretty quiet. We had a great time however and got a tour of the bar downstairs. Will definitely come back next time we are in Barcelona and sure to book for 11PM
