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

Este es el proyecto de dos jóvenes barceloneses, el chef Sergi Palacín y el barman Ignacio Ussía, que se conocieron en Gaggan (Bangkok), el mejor restaurante de Asia. Han creado este gastro-cocktail bar donde sirven platos de carta y dos menús degustación, además de cócteles clásicos revisados y otros rompedores en los que usan nitrógeno líquido, hielo seco, espumas, gelificantes o esferificaciones.

Al llegar, te reciben con varios macerados y The Alchemix Table, la tabla periódica a imagen usada por los alquimistas donde Ussía explica sus creaciones. Ya en el comedor, de tonos ocres y con un gran mural de un campo oriental, rematas la experiencia. Para que te hagas una idea de su línea de trabajo, que une Asia y el Mediterráneo, en sus cartas (sólida y líquida) igual puedes encontrar un macerado de rabo de toro que un bacalao a baja temperatura con tempeh de alubias, unos huevos con morcilla de wagyu y kokotxas o unos puerros con avellanas, miso y trufas negras. Solo abre en horario de tarde-noche salvo los viernes y sábados, que se puede visitar al mediodía.

    Lovely food, different variations. The best was the oyster with coconut cream, a taste experience more then the usual. The service was great, good explanation of the dishes. The design was not so well made and also why I don't score the atmosphere higher, there was missing some cosy background music. Was a great experience!

    A fantastic restaurant, possibly the only one of its kind in Barcelona, offering a delicate and refined fusion of Asian and European cuisines. We were impressed by the beauty and elaboration of each dish, by their originality and subtle use of ingredients from different Asian regions. The service was amiable and professional, thus helping us to have a great night.

    Great food made by great people. It was nice to meet the owners and learn the story of how they met during the trip to Asia and how the ideas of the Katalane and Asian fusion cuisine came to their minds.

    The service was absolutely outstanding and the cocktails were really impressive. Shout out to the staff, really passionate about cocktails and willing to accomodate the customers needs, even though we were picky. While the food was good, we didn't feel it met the standards of fine dining. The first half of the dégustation menu were meeting our expectations. Then from the gambas rice, we had interesting combinations but with limited flavours, it felt like regular produces with a fancy presentation, and actually elaborated sauces. Sorry for the harsh note on food, but with fine dining pricing we have high expectations. I'd suggest to assess the premium quality of the original products to make the food.

    The Alchemix

    Dear Mike. We really apreciate your opinion it will help us to grow, as customer service is very important for us. I can ensure you that our products used in this menu, are best quality, as it is one of our main standards. We will love to see you again in your next visit in Barcelona, for see if you can change your opinion. BR.

    Very nice restaurant: simple but with taste. We had a 6 course menu and all the plates were excellent, original and tasty. We opted for the ”marriage” of wines and it was a very pleasant surprise, not only did we get wine and cava but also a number of very good cocktails. Very professional service. Just two points: slow down the service (there is very little time between the courses) and transmit more clearly the joy of a very good cuisine.

    The Alchemix

    We appreciate your opinion, it will make us improve. We understand your observation perfectly, thank you so much for letting us know. BR

    I had the special Christmas menu, 8 courses, and there were a couple highlights: the foi gras turron and the escudella, both amazing. The rest of the dishes were good and creative but it sometimes felt like the ‘special touch’ (like the rice pearl in the oyster) got lost within the dish’s complexity. Service was perfect and very attentive. Only wish they would have offered a wine pairing option, but the wines i was recommended were very good.
