Xop D'Or

Last date I was here: 05/28/2010

Restaurant: Xop D'Or (http://restaurantxopdor.com/)

Location: Place d'Espanya-Barcelona, Spain

Total Rating: 3.5
Food: 3, Price: 4, Service: 4, Ambience: 4, Accessibility: 5

Summary: We wanted to find a place to have dinner before the night time water fountain show and stumbled upon this brewery/restaurant. Patio seating is available outside and the tapas bar inside. We sat in the back dining area that was decorated with bright orange colors and contemporary paintings. Our server spoke English very well and was very attentive. The menu seemed varied with common dishes - similar to the chain restaurants in America. Our appetizers were amazing and very tasty, yet I was disappointed with my entree selection. I knew I probably should not have ordered it, yet thought it would be a safe choice. Keith enjoyed his veal and we both devoured the desserts (seemed to be a trend in Spain). All in all, this dining experience was different than the "authentico" establishments, but the food was still decent. I would recommend other tourists to eat here, since they could find a mix of familiar (salad, pasta, pizza) and traditional (veal, rabbit, tapas).

Goat Cheese and Roasted Vegetables
