The food was excellent. Service was friendly, but a complete mess. Please, do something about this. Your chef deserves better!

    If you are looking for an exceptional experience, don`t forget to visit this restaurant in Barcelona. Tapas is a synonym of Barcelona and pairing with a wonderful cocktail service and music, it makes really outstanding experience. Every time I visit to Barcelona, there is no question to repeat such a great experience with Arola Restaurant in Ritz Carlton Barcelona. Recommended 100%!!

  3. Arola - D. Quan (21 Sep 2012 - 08:45)

    Worst Michelin 2 star restaurant. Food is hit and miss, service from a waiter from Italy who has been working there for only 10 months. Dropped my napkin when I went to the bathroom and they did not replace it. When I asked what happened to my napkin, the waiter said you dropped it, no replacement, can you believe that!!!
    Music was too loud, wine list was overpriced. Nothing was good at this restaurant, how the **** did they get 2 stars!!!

  4. Terrible! - Warren B (2 Aug 2012 - 08:30)

    Probably the worst restaurant I have ever been to at this level. Four dishes on tasting menu were inedible, staff were poor and I had to leave table twice to order drinks.
    Do not waste your money!

    Si en los top 10 se incluye este restaurante este sitio no merece mi credibilidad. Hace poco estuve cenando en este restaurante y no me gustó nada, por lo menos el menú degustación. No me gusto la comida, mal servicio y carísimo calidad-precio. Lo único que tiene es el nombre del autor, que supongo mantiene por el restaurante de Madrid. Me parece una estafa para turistas que asocian el nombre con la estrella Michelin (Madrid), y para "locales" que picamos una vez y no mas.
