La Plassohla in Barcelona – Review

La Plassohla is located within the beautiful, 5-star Ohla Hotel located on Laietana street. The gastro bar is encased in glass and looks out onto the busy street. The restaurant also features a terrace from which to enjoy your meal if you so choose. The ambiance is informal and the menu, filled with tapas and “raciones” is meant to be experienced with friends or colleagues. Chef Romain Fornell (also head chef of Caelis located on the first floor), wants to offer the public an affordable fine dining experience in a more informal ambiance.
