Gran Cafe (El)
Located in the heart of the city, close to Plaça Sant Jaume, this cafe has a Belle Époque ambience. The food is a clever mixture of traditional Catalan cuisine and present-day fare. At lunchtime they serve fresh, seasonal market dishes. There is a piano to add ambience, and the place is decorated with columns and wooden ceilings. There are also dining areas available for groups, adorned with pottery and bottles.
My favourite restaurant in Spain. I have already decided to make it the venue for my 'big' birthday in 2010. All family and friends will be travelling from the UK.
Lovely food, wonderful surroundings and friendly staff. A restaurant where you feel 'special'.
The Restaurants interior look like somethring from the higher class in Paris back from 1930. They even have a man playing the piano.
The food is international highclass - without being in the Michelin star class - and we did'nt expericenced and mistake this evening.
We were two persons who got 3 courses meal, water, bread, good redwine, and coffee. We payed 88�
This is a really cool looking restaurant, definitely out of the 'old world' - all wood panelling and engraved mirrors. The service leaves a little room for improvement, with all the staff strangely wired up like secret service agents.
The food was excellent - I started with the cured Iberian ham. This was superb, and came with the delicious tomota bread famous in Barcelona. My girlfriend had the asparagus, ham and carbonara ravioli which was also excellent. This was followed by some sublime lamb chops, served with perfectly done crunchy yet softened grilled vegtables.
A great place to stumble upon, but bookings are advised, we tried to go on a saturday night and the earliest table was midnight. Also, have a look at the group dining rooms upstairs.
Dont get the seafood. It was tough and dry. The Fiduea (sp?) was excellent, and the cava they recommended was suitable, but again, don't get the seafood. My girlfriend got prawns and hake. The hake was chewy on the corners, and the prawns lacked flavor, probably because they were not fresh. I don't think that is their specialty.
I'm ambivalent about the service. The waiter was great, but our host was an ass. He was rude. All in all, it was ok.
