Our initial plan was to dine at Barcelona's seafront but we changed our mind and went back to town centre for dinner instead. We spotted Citrus Restaurant earlier in the morning when we left Tapa Tapa Bar, which was situated just next door.
The menu looked interesting. The menu came in several languages, which was very handy. Although the restaurant settings appeared posh, price wise, it was quite affordable.
First to arrive was Fish and Seafood Crepes with a Thin Shrimp Cream (€8.95). The crepe was filled with finely diced seafood and drenched with strong prawn flavoured gravy. It was very delicious.
I was looking forward to trying a warm starter of Seafood Ravioli with Cream of Crab (€6.45) only to realized halfway through eating that in fact what I was savouring was Ravioli of Prawn and Baby Vegetables with Herring Caviar and Pine Kernels (€8.35). The waitress must of heard of the "ravioli" word and assumed we wanted the latter. The dish was worth trying but I was disappointed that it wasn't what I wanted. I didn't request for an exchange since we were halfway through the dish.
Next, we had "Kumato" Tomato Salad with Tuna Belly and Spring Onion (€6.55), which we didn't order either. The waitress took the wrong order again. Initially, I didn't suspect anything. I thought the dish certainly had a special presentation style. It wasn't until when I went through the menu again only to realize that the waitress gave me the wrong dish. She probably listened to only a certain keywords rather than the entire phrase. The tuna was very thinly sliced and had no fishy taste, so all in all this dish was acceptable.
Not to be missed, we also had Fish and Seafood Paella (€11.55) which required a 20-minute waiting time. The paella came with a generous amount of seafood.
For dessert, we had Red Fruits Foam and Violets Ice Cream (€4.95). The dessert is made up of what I suspect are berries Jell-O, a scoop of violet ice cream, accompanied by some berry sauce. The dessert was nothing to shout about. The texture was quite rough.
The total bill came up to €43.45, inclusive of a bottle of still water. I would rate this place 3/5. I would have scored this place higher had it the waitress gave me the correct orders.
