  1. Alkimia and Comerc24 are both excellent. Search the board and you will find many many posts on them as they are two of the most popular molecular gastromony restaurant in Barcelona.

      are these restaurants in the same price range?

        Cinq Sentits was somewhat more expensive than Alkimia. I have not been to Comerc. I would not really consider Alkimia "molecular", as compared with other restaurants of that genre I thought it was rather tame. It was, however, very cutting-edge in the sense of flavors and presentation, and the food was magnificent. I liked it a little better than Cinq Sentits, which is very good but more "updated classic Catalan" than cutting-edge modern. As PBSF says, some research on this board will provide more specifics.
