This is the most personal project of the prolific Iglesias brothers, who also have a hand in nearby seafood temple Rias de Galicia, tapas bar Cañota and Bellavista del Jardín del Norte along with a certain footballer called Leo Messi. Here, however, they've gone literally back to basics with a menu that's focused in the main on raw food (cru means 'raw' in Spanish).  It started as an expansion project into the upstairs part of Rias 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 emotion will feed your stomach and spirit.
