Description: The Restaurante Sedna is located since 2005 in the ground floor of a building with a century XIII structure catalogued by UNESCO as Gotic Catalan art heritage, in front of Port Vell (Old Port) in the oldest part of the Barcelona sea façade and sorrounded of monuments and historical buildings as the Colon's Monument (1888), th Church of La Merced (XII centure), the Duke of Medinaceli Place (1851), the Militar Government (1847), the Post Office Building (1927), the Via Layetana Street, the Palau Place among others. A tradition point out that where is the Restaurante Sedna today, is where Don Miguel de Cervantes author of the novel Don Quijote de la Mancha went to write when he lived in Paseo Colon, 2 during his stage in Barcelona. All the dishes on the menu are prepared with fresh products typical of the season. Both fish, meat, vegetables and vegetables are acquired every day and are treated with respect, transparency and simplicity. The secret of the success of the kitchen of the restaurant Sedna is a careful treatment of products and ingredients as well as their combinations and firing processes. Of market modern cuisine with traditional, tasty and recognizable elements that feel like eating again. As culmination of the meal you can choose from a varied range of desserts of classic but creative development and presentation. The place has a capacity of 45 persons inside and 36 persons in the terrace.

On looking at the menu, and after speaking to the waiter outside we decided to eat here. This first waiter was very pleasant. However, that was the last time we saw him. Another waiter came to take our order, and didn't try to answer any questions I had about any dish. He just mumbled and said everything was very good. I thought that his English may not have been that good but I heard him talking in English to someone else that came in. We both decided to get the steak and emphasised that we wanted it rare. When it came out both our steaks were cooked very well done. We called the waiter over and said that this wasn't what we asked for. He rolled his eyes and took our plates away. A while later he brought our meat cooked correctly. No'one made any effort to apologise. Also he had left the rest of our food on the table so this was all cold by the time the steaks came out after. There was an extremely bad atmosphere/vibe in the restaurant the whole time, and we just couldn't wait to finish our meal and leave. In all, I thought it was a very bad experience. I wouldn't recommend here as a place to eat.

Had dinner our last night at Sedna and it was fabulous. The food was fresh and plentiful, dessert out of this world and atmosphere lovely in the outdoor tables. Highly recommend it to all!

Upon reading the menu outside my girlfriend and I were enticed inside by the waiter, it seemed a good way to end our Barca trip. We surveyed the menu and gave our order of two sirloin steaks, both well done. Upon giving the order the waiter said it will be some time before our food will be ready. Little did we realise it would take over an hour for the food to arrive with little apology. In the midst of this we were offered some bread and water, thinking it was to compensate for the long wait for our mains. To our disbelief both were added to the bill. The meal itself was very very primitive. Small portions and the steaks were medium at best. After finishing our meal the waiters tended to different tables (only 2 others in the restaurant at the time) while we sat for a further 20 minutes before our table was cleared. At this stage we decided to pay the bill inside and leave. Probably the worst service we have come across on our two week trip across Spain. Very disappointed.

Stopped for dinner on a walking tour and enjoyed our wine and paella. Service was attentive with free post dinner drinks provided. Traffic noise was a bit loud out on the patio.
