Saddest excuse of a cheese platter we have ever had. Potata Bravas were decent.

I’ve been here from business meetings to friends’ get togethers, it’s always been super wonderful. The food is really amazing, I usually get the rack of lamb with a glass of Tempranillo. If you have room left over for dessert, try the chocolate option. Always book ahead if you can!

We chose B44 for the New Year’s Eve dinner because we are from Madrid, and as we were away from Spain we wanted to have a home made dinner. The place is alright, ambience is not bad, but the music was awful taking into account that it’s a Catalan/Spanish bistro, they could’ve played some rumba, flamenco or other typical Spanish music. Service was normal, not bad but not good either. Menu is short for all the wonders of the Spanish cuisine. The worst part of the restaurant is the food. We ordered a tabla de embutidos and one of cheese, as there wasn’t one with both (what is wrong with these people?), and they served 2 slices of jamon, 2 of chorizo and 2 of lomo with 3 pieces of cheese; the embutido was average turning to bad, as the one you can find at the supermarket in Spain for 1€ the package. This costed 35$ for 6 slices of embutido and 3 of cheese, wow. Then the bravas weren’t bad, salsa brava was ok, but it was a small bowl, lets say a fourth of what you’d get in Spain; for the price they charge they could’ve served something decent. Then the paella hortelana we asked for doesn’t even deserve to be called paella. Size wasn’t that horrible,1/4 or half of what you get in Spain, but the taste was awful, undercooked, unmatching ingredients and no taste at all; even my 15 y/o brother can cook a better paella at home than that. We ordered some Catalan tinto as well, which was not good. This is not a butthurt comment, it’s just that the food was pretty bad, and the sizes were ridiculous. At their prices they should be cooking some decent food, and the image they give of Spanish and Catalan cuisine is pretty bad. This restaurant in Spain wouldn’t last open not even for 3 months, and I know what I’m talking about as my family has a restaurant in Madrid. As a Spanish, I wouldn’t eat here ever again, and as someone who wants to taste Spanish cuisine, choose this place if you want to get overpriced bad try to be Spanish food. If not find a better Spanish restaurant.

Much louder than I remember. Waiter had a hard time hearing us order. Food rushed. Not very attentive. Had to ask for more water, etc.

I would rate this restaurant five star, but for the noise level. The well climate controlled patio is a better choice in this regard.

The red peppers stuffed with crab were delicious as well as the lamb keebobs. Service was a bit slow but it could have been because of the large groups that were there.

I just wished i had the whole plate of paella all to myself. The food was good and so were the wine bottles we ordered. The serverrs were friendly and efficient.
