Restaurant Review : Montiel, Barcelona (Part 2!)

Sorry folks, for some reason (maybe I pressed the wrong button) my previous post on Montiel was published before I was finished with it - oops!

Anyway, I went on to say that hubby had the salmon tartare to start which was lovely and fresh, and then had the suckling pig for main.  The suckling pig was so tender that you could cut it with a spoon, but it still had the thin crispy, salty skin that makes it so wonderful.

The dessert list looked great, but we were too full to fit anything in, and after we'd finished our lovely bottle of Spanish red wine and had paid the bill, our friendly waiter walked us to the corner and pointed out the taxi rank on the next block.  It was so much closer than the distance we'd had to walk to get there!  Just goes to show what happens when you turn left instead of right.

I'll be doing a review on TripAdvisor, but I can't imagine it'll be different to what's here.  Montiel is a great restaurant, well worthy of a visit, and the prices weren't at all crazy for such amazing food.  They also do a multi course tasting menu with a wine pairing - very reasonably priced.

Oh, and not sure if it was in the previous post or not, but you can make a reservation on their website.  It's simple and quick and you get a confirmation immediately.  Easy peasy.
