About the restaurant El Gran Café

"The classical spaces are fashionable. El Gran Café restaurant is located in a building from 1920 and is one of the few spaces in Barcelona that has kept its original Art Nouveau decor. When you are done with tourism, or you want to discover one of the more peculiar places in the city, this is your restaurant in the historic center of the Gótico neighborhood.

In this impressive and attractive café you can taste a selection of the best traditional Catalan gastronomy. A small sample, that will make your mouth water, would be to start with the meat foie cannelloni au gratin, then continue with black fideuá with roasted garlic aioli and finish with the temptation that characterizes the Burnt Catalan Crème.

Close to the emblematic Liceo and the Palau de la Música, you'll find El Gran Café, a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere that reaches its zenith with live piano music that entertains nightly. If you want to experience the latest do not delay in booking at this unique classic."

Overall a good experience. I ordered four tapas dishes, and asked with the server if I had ordered too much food. He said “it should be enough”. It turns out a couple of the tapas dishes were not the typical tapas size; they were served on a much bigger plate (normal dish size). So I feel that the advice of the server wasn’t reliable on the portion of the food. Other than that, it was a very good experience, the food and atmosphere was nice, and the service was good also. I would recommend this restaurant.
