Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

This is the most personal project of the prolific Iglesias brothers, who also have a hand in nearby seafood temple Rías de Galicia, Casa de Tapes Cañota and Bellavista del Jardín del Norte, this last one along with a certain footballer called Leo Messi. Here, however, they've literally gone back to basics with a menu that's focused mainly on raw food ('cru' means 'raw' in Catalan). It started as an expansion project into the upstairs part of Rías de Galicia and ended up as a place to sample some of the best seafood in Barcelona. 

As well as incredible products, when the elements put together on the plate by chef Ever Cubilla such as the salad of lobster, avocado and coral mayonnaise, and razor clams from the Cíes Islands with mustard and ginger vinagrette  invade your mouth, the resulting emotion will feed both your stomach and your spirit.
