Visiting Raco d'en Cesc (I think this means Francesco's corner) after a rainy day in Barcelona more than made up for the wet and cold outside. It is located inside what used to be a house. The decorator made good use of the various rooms...More

Such a lovely place with very welcoming staff and perfect food. We came without reservation and was welcomed with a smile. The sirelion was amazing and the canaloni needs a place for itself. If we get to Barcelona again, we are back to this place...More

Took wife and two children and had a fantastic meal in our own room with friendly and attentive service and great food. Recommended by a colleague who lives in Barcelona as it is his favourite restaurant and it lived up to its bilLing.

We enjoyed a family lunge the day our second daughter graduated. We had a private room. The food is high quality. Many Catalan specialities. Huge wine list, very handy advice from the sommelier (great Catalan wine a reasonable price). Worth to go back.

Very traditional Spanish restaurant, not a tourist place. Good choice menu, nice staff and relatively reasonable. We had the taster menu, which was so so. Will give it another try next time in fabulous BCN.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
