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

Disgusting service
Estaba liderando un grupo de turistas y cometimos el error de elegir descansar en vuestra cafetería. El comportamiento de vuestro camarero fue inaceptable. Desde que nos sentamos fue brusco e impredecible, tirando y derramando los cafés que pedimos sobre las mesas, agitando su mano como un lunático para que retiráramos nuestros objetos personales de la mesa y cuando traía la cuenta y pedíamos pagar por separado empezó a gritar, insultarnos y chillar. Cuando pedí ver al jefe, su respuesta fue que no hay gerente y que somos groseros y "chillando". Su comportamiento es racista y es bullying, algo que es ilegal. Siguió así por más de 10 minutos, al punto que llamé a la policía y voy a hacer la denuncia oficial. ¿Así tratais a los turistas en vuestra ciudad? Esta persona es una vergüenza y debe ser expulsada de sus instalaciones inmediatamente. Personalmente, ya no recomendaré tu lugar a nadie. - 24 Nov 2023 - 08:38

    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%!!

    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.
