This is probably my most favourite fining meal of this trip. All the meals we had were great but this was most suited to my taste.
The restaurant is located on a more local street so best to go by taxi.
I like how they use veggie instead of flowers to decorate the tables.
We chose the “Traditions Menu” on their Midday Menu which is a really good deal considering the quality we got.This is fun – the liquid version their popular bread with olive oil and tomato sauce.
Cod fish with green beans Blue bouillabaisse Leek pie
Papillote banana with coffee ice-cream
Our first fine dining in Barcelona … our reservation was 8.30pm, for us it is already quite late but apparently people still walked in passed 10pm! We chose the tasting menu and it took approx 3 hours. Butter in various flavours
3 dishes of appetizers
All dishes were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Overall the tasting menu portion was a bit too much for me but I managed to try everything. Flavours are strong but mostly in the garnish so the freshness of the meat or seafood was not compromised. Service was good too, very attentive yet not overdoing it.
We went back to Mercat La Boqueria for lunch…the store we wanted to go to was really busy, we had to queue for about 20mins. They have a wide selection of fish, prawns, shellfish, etc. Their grilled seafood platter is very popular but the portion is too big for us so instead we chose two seafood and grilled mix veggie…Everything were delicious and fresh.
Our first day ended with a delicious dinner at Can Majo, located next to the beach at La Barceloneta. It was not full the day we went but reservation is recommended. Also they don’t open early for dinner service.They also have an outdoor area but it was a bit chilly for us. Inside of the restaurant was lovely too.
