Having had some great food experiences in Barcelona we came across this little square just off La Rambla on our way to the Gothic Quarter and stopped for lunch. The square is nicely busy; we chose probably 10 or so tapas dishes and a bottle...More

We stumbled upon Taxidermista purely by accident, and were so glad we did! We shared a terrina of foie gras, hummus and braised eggplant, and a goat cheese salad, accompanied by some fine Tempranillo, all for only about 35 euros. It's a lively spot with...More

During a 5 day recent visit to Barcelona, Taxidermista was the highlight for food and for service. It is located on a very busy and attractive square. We arrived an hour late (don't ask) for our reservation on a humid Summer evening. Terrace was full,...More

When we spend good money on a meal the least we expect is that the restaurant values our custom. This place doesn't give a flying fig. Six of us turned up last Sunday and were served main courses that you wouldn't put before your worst...More

We enjoyed our meal here, the ambience was pleasant and the service efficient. The food was good but not remarkable and whilst the bill was not outrageous at €75 for two with wine it was more than we paid at other establishments for similar fare.

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the

Description
Located in a historical building in the bustling Plaza Real, Café restaurant Taxidermista offers seasonal cooking. The building was previously a natural science museum and taxidermy workshop although it also served as an air raid shelter during the Civil War. The remains of the convent from before the Plaza was built are still preserved in the basement. The atmosphere is cosmopolitan and the clientele includes artists, designers and architects. Taxidermista has preserved many of the original features and organises plenty of cultural activities that mean it is much more than just a restaurant. In addition to the interesting menu, it offers a variety of excellent tapas made from excellent ingredients.
