WILL I GET THE CHANCE TO SEE OR MEET THE CHEF?
Our chef is usually at ABaC, although we cannot guarantee that he will definitely be there as he runs three more restaurants in Barcelona. If he is there while you are visiting the restaurant, you will be able to meet him.
CAN WE CHANGE OR CANCEL OUR RESERVATION?
Yes, subject to restaurant availability. You can make changes to your reservation via the website. Changes for parties of 1 to 5 guests can be made up to 48 hours before the dining experience. Changes for parties of 6 to 12 guests can be made up to 7 days before the dining experience. In either case, you have up to 48 hours before your dining experience to add an additional guest to your party via the website. For any other type of change, please contact the restaurant.
WHAT HAPPENS IF SOME GUESTS ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND ON THE DAY OF THE RESERVATION?
Such circumstance would be treated as a change outside of our 48-hour cancellation policy. In accordance with our change and cancellation policy, the sum of €90 per no-show guest would be charged to the credit card provided to secure your booking.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I REALISE I AM NOT ABLE TO GO TO MY RESERVATION?
Please inform the restaurant with as much notice as possible. If you realise within the cancellation period, we will cancel your reservation. If you realise outside of the period or you were not to show up at the time of your reservation, we will charge the sum of €90 per guest to the credit card provided to secure the booking.
I HAVE A RESERVATION AND CANNOT MAKE IT BUT A FRIEND/FAMILY MEMBER CAN. CAN I TRANSFER MY RESERVATION TO THEM?
We leave the decision to your discretion. Please take into account that if you were not to make the reservation, we would charge the sum of €90 for each no show guest to the credit card provided to secure the booking.
IS THERE A DRESS CODE?
The dress code is smart casual (no shorts or sandals for men).
WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM LATE FOR MY RESERVATION?
Punctuality is very important to ensure that our service runs smoothly. Each reservation is made to ensure smooth running of the restaurant and so the kitchen can provide an impeccable service. We kindly request you to inform us if you are running late.
