This is as good as it gets in hotel-land; it's genuinely hard to fault a thing about ABaC, and it feels slightly churlish to try and do so. Nevertheless, in the interest of critical reviewing, let's give it a whirl. It's set on a busy road. But it's cocooned in a lush garden and surrounded by high wooden walls (press a discreet buzzer to enter), so you barely notice the traffic - plus the bedrooms are fully soundproofed. It's expensive. But it's utterly spoiling and being here feels like a real treat. It's a bit out of town, near the Park Güell.

A jewel in the city, away from the noise and buzz of the center, easily reachable. Situated in uptown residential area, wonderful rooms, cozy spa and 2 michelin star restaurant by the renowned chef Jordi Cruz! More on my blog.

Sadly, the food didn't live up to reputation. Despite a allergy requirement being given at booked, confirmed, and told at the restaurant, all 3 starters contained it. The food is overly fussy with no clear direction and generally lacking soul, also seen in the venue which was sterile. Far to much flitting of servers and waiters making the place seem chaotic rather than elegant. The staff were pleasant enough. Overall and expensive 'alright' meal

For people considering a visit to this 2-michelin starred restaurant, a few things which I feel compelled to point out... 1. The food was not worth the visit. Obviously the food was not bad, but for a new 2-star michelin establishment with buzz, we expected much better. Especially when compared to our other michelin-restaurant visits on this trip like el club Allard (Madrid), Paul Bocuse (Lyon), Regis et Jacques Marcon (Auvergne). Several dishes in our 8-course tasting used noticeably similar sauces/ingredients which was a bit boring and disappointing. And there were several courses that just didn't really require savoring. 2. The presentation was stale. Many dishes had the same presentation...2 servers simultaneously drop white plates with grand gold coverings...and in a very coordinated manor pull the covers off to reveal...things that were not that interesting to look at. 3. The service was poor, our servers were really hectic, not that the service was rushed but they were noticeably behind the gun and couldn't calmly or smoothly work the room. And at the end, I literally waited 15-20mins for the bill and it was very hard to get our servers attention. I asked him twice for the bill, and the 2nd time, he said he already asked and it was going to be delivered from the front desk. I guess because we weren't also staying at the hotel it took longer, that doesn't seem right.

Called & informed there was a table for four and was sent a form by email to fill-in with credit card details. When I opened it on my iPhone I realised that it required a signature! Called them again & they informed me that they were fully booked. Why did they not ask for CC details on the phone to secure the booking in the first place? #fail

Mind. Blown. One of, if not the, greatest meal of my life. My wife and I ate there on June 4, 2013, and I will never forget that date. We also stayed at the hotel that evening, and it was worth the cost. They have very few rooms, and very many staff. You can do that math. We saw one other couple that was staying there during breakfast, but that was it. But I digress. Let's get back to the best meal of my life, yes? We opted for the first of two tasting menus. There are individual courses on the menu, but please do that right thing and just choose one of the tastings. I'll copy and paste ours here, if only so that every time I see my review, I will be reminded of how great it was. - Nitro cocktail - Mediterranean mussel curry with kaffir lime - Shellfish Bloody Mary snow and cured meats - Liquid Parmesan gnocchi with summer truffle with raw and roasted Mushrooms, cep water infusion with lemongrass - Foie-gras with figs, fig tree leaves ice cream and balsamic vinegar - Smoked steak tartare, seasoned snow-like beef, cooked egg yolk, veil of mustard and pepper bread brittle - Palamós prawn, Iberian pork tail and cutlet, coral consommé and curry bread - Casarecce Pasta with sea cucumbers, squid's water, "Comté" cheese and lemon basil - Salt-baked black grouper with a veil of glass, spicy roots purée and halophytes - Beef cooked in three ways, lemon thyme consommé, beef tendons and stir-fried mushrooms - Yuzu sorbet with yoghurt, basil and citrus zests - On a bed of smoked bread brittle, roast biscuit, banana, coffee, vanilla and bourbon The Sommelier (totally deserves to be capitalized) recommended the Nun 2011 for our first bottle, and it was a terrifically clean and zesty white that played off of the multiple seafood plates perfectly. He recommended a second local wine, the Els Bassots 2010 Chenin Blanc that had a light mineral flavor (very good), though by this point in the meal I was too punch drunk by the food and wine to give it much thought. As for the plates, there was not a single low-light. The mussel curry tasted mainly of lemongrass until the curry sacks (I don't know how else to describe them) would burst in your mouth, and then the curry, mussels, lime and lemongrass combined into the most amazing flavor. The smoked steak tartare was covered in glass, so that we could see the smoke as it was placed on the table. Then, the waiters would lift off the lid and the smell of the smoke would waft around the table, so that the taste of the smoke in the tartare was amplified by the smell. Look, I could go over these dishes one by one, but it will just make me sad that I already had this meal, and won't be able to return there for some time. The serving plates were all stone, from quartz to slate, and there was also a ceramic plate in there somewhere. The plating was perfection. The service was perfection. The ambiance was perfection. The food was perfection. There was not a single flaw in this entire meal. I would argue that it deserves a third star, but that's for the Michelin guys to decide.

My wife and I rarely have any holidays, due to the hectic lives we have. We therefore only have one or two moments to briefly escape and disconnect from the family and business life. After researching hotels in Barcelona, I came across the ABAC Hotel and I loved the concept. I booked the Penthouse suite and, although we had a little administrative scare upon check-in (where we almost were moved to another smaller room) we utterly enjoyed our 3-day stay. The room is not the best feature of the Penthouse: the terrace is! A beautiful and private modern terrace with views to a public park and a great open air jacuzzi. The hotel staff is marvelous and attentive: breakfasts at our terrace became glorious and relaxing moments for us to unwind. For those techies, the AV of the room is marvelous, with a huge Bang & Olufsen system. The two-Michelin star restaurant deserves a separate review: it was a true jewel. Chef Jordi Cruz marveled us with unique dishes. Bravo to the ABAC Hotel! We will make sure to recommend this venue to all of our friends travelling to Barcelona and we will see you again in the near future.

Love Xavier. Wonder if the place is nearly as good since Xavier has moved over to Santi Santamaria's resto.
