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."

As it was my wife's birthday, I really appreciated that all my requests were fulfilled. The waiters were very nice and we had a very good time in this restaurant. Food is not expensive which allows to order more !
Piano music was very enjoyable as the pianist played some very known songs.

We have dined here many times and are always happy to eat here. Service is excellent, the ambiance is lovely, and the live piano music is a plus. All of our main dishes, steak, chicken and fish, were fine, as were the starters, especially the breaded calamari, and the desserts. Always a very pleasant dining experience and highly recommended.
