la Dama is a delightful classical restaurant in central Barcelona, with a small but very pretty dining room upstairs in the elegant building. Service is extremely good, much better than their solitary Michelin star would indicate. The cooking is a cross between French and some Spanish dishes, and over three visits I have found it one of the most reliable of the restaurants in Barcelona itself. The cooking is reliable rather than striking, with most dishes around the 16/20 level e.g. a fine lobster paella, prettily displayed. Prices are fair for the level of cooking.
