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.

This is a tourist trap. Sidewalk waiter essentially insisted we come in to sit. Special of the day board listed items, but were discouraged from ordering them. Ambiance was poor- street noise overbearing. Children ordered pasta with butter- we were charged equal to pasta dish that had salmon on it! Children’s sodas were 4.5euros each! When I inquired on excessive bill, I was returned 20euros as compensation. Thoroughly disappointed.

We dined in this fairly small restaurant on Boxing Day in the early evening. We sat inside where the decor and ambience is classy and refined. What about the food/wine? Well the food and wine we had all tasted utterly divine and was all beautifully cooked and presented. The service was excellent too. So what did we eat/drink? First we ordered a bottle of chilled Catalonian dry white from their wine list, and nibbled through a basket of their fresh bread (which consists of a fresh crispy baguette carefully cut into small refined pieces) drizzled with the virgin olive oil provided. For the main course we had Catalonian casseroled chicken pieces (the waiter’s recommendation) accompanied separately by a plate of freshly grilled vegetables and a plate of French fries. For desert we chose their caramalised apple flan and a baked apple slice dish - both dishes were topped with just the right amount of ice cream. Espresso coffees completed the feast! When we are next in Barcelona, we’ll certainly be back to eat here. What did it cost? About €50 per head including the wine and coffee and was worth every euro!

We visited at lunchtime at about 12 & the restaurant was empty. The food however was very good, we probably over faced ourselves with tapas dishes as starters, so the seafood & mixed paella that we ordered (between 4 of us) went largely uneaten, but what we did have was exceptionally well presented & tasted beautiful. The restaurant itself is easy to find, but a little out of the full tourist route, but it's worth a visit.

When we were here, everything was perfect. The music is great and calming. When ever we wanted to chill talk with each other we go here. Good food. Nice place.

This was one of the few restaurants open during the general strike. We were so hungry and they were so welcoming - lovely setting, great wine, solid food. Yes, a bit expensive - but they are in a prime location. I really appreciated that they were open...
