This was the first restaurant I went to in Barcelona and one of the best. The food was creative and tasty, especially the deserts. It had a great atmosphere and wonderful waitstaff. A lovely experience.

We ate two apetisers: one was excellent (tge daily special) while the saahimi was somehow normally good. Main course the same: excellent lamb and mediocre pork. For excellence, the cook must be more continuous in top quality.

For starters, we ordered the spinach salad and the white mushroom, polenta, and calamari appetizer. Both were fantastic. Main courses...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

A 18 years old Barcelona Center Restaurant. We love Mediterranean cuisine, with proximity food and seasonnal products. But without leaving outinfluences from other cultures and International and innovative cuisine with salads, meats, fish and vegetarian options

Cosy, Warm, intimate and Romantic place with a young and carefree service when we speak Catalan, Spanish, English and French.

We are behing the City Hall in Sant Jaume Square. With the City Hall at you right hand, the first street, called CIUTAT, after that the second to the lefht hand, in that case: Bellafila Street
