On our last evening in Barcelona we dined at Enoteca Paco Perez, the two Michelin starred restaurant residing in the Hotel Arts Barcelona. We booked our reservation online a few weeks ahead of time. A credit card is required to secure a reservation.  We booked the earliest available time since we were dining with our two year old son.

Upon arrival we entered to an empty restaurant and were greeted warmly and we were offered to choose a table of our choice.  However due to our party being larger than two we were not allowed to select a table outside on the patio.  We then selected a nice semi private corner table

The decor and setting of the restaurant is nice and the walls are adorned with many bottles of wine and expensive champagne.

We had a lovely waiter and waitress both assigned to our table. They both took our orders and plated our food at the table together at the same time. They were very friendly and professional.

We had decided ahead of time to go with the tasting menu to be able to try a large variety of dishes. We did not however splurge on the drink tasting menu but just had a few glasses of wine which worked out to only be slightly cheaper than the tasting menu.

The dinner was never ending as we had so many different plates.  We liked all of our dishes but none were head and shoulders above the rest.

For our son, we kept it simple by ordering some gnocchi with sauce which he generally enjoys.  For some odd reason he was not hungry for that and just had about 3-4 pieces of the scrumptious bread they served us.

My wife loved the LLUM olive oil that we had with our bread and our waiter mentioned that they do sell the product in the restaurant to take home.

For our wine’s we tried to stick with wines from the Catalonia region. The sommelier was knowledgeable and friendly and helped with our selections.

To help our son sit through a nearly three hour dining affair we let him play games on our iPhone so he was quite well behaved!

PointsPinnacle Breakdown

An overall satisfying meal with impeccable service and nice setting. We have eaten at a few of the more expensive Michelin star restaurants during our travels but I always feel that  in the end, although enjoyable, it is never worth the price paid. But we do enjoy trying new restaurants and treating ourselves every now and then. If you are staying at the Hotel Arts (like we were) Enoteca Paco Perez is perfect for a special occasion or for foodies wanting a nice gastronomic experience.
