About the restaurant El Salón

El Salón restaurant has an 80’s England themed environment with an elegant touch. Its cuisine, however, is based on Catalonia’s best seasonal cooking. Dare to discover it in the heart of Barcelona’s Barri Gòtic.

You’ll be able to notice the high quality of ingredients while savoring the pumpkin Ravioli in Parmesan sauce, duck Magret or Codfish au gratin with Hollandaise sauce. Chocolate Coulant with vanilla ice cream or the traditional Crema Catalana are perfect desserts for such exquisite meals. El Salón’s cellar and its extensive wine list will be the ideal match for the whole gastronomic journey.

If weather allows you, make sure to enjoy El Salon’s terrace right at the Traginers Plaza, a magical spot including a Roman wall and great sights. What are you waiting for to live this splendid experience?

The food was excellent - the service was spot on - and the prices were very reasonable, especially given the quality. Highly recommended without reservations.

We needed an early reservation for a great dinner. So we saw that this restaurant opened at 6:00. While we were running a bit late we called and said is it ok to arrive at 6:15? They said no problem..
We got ther st 6:10. They acted like they were not expecting anyone and seated us. While mopping the floors with pine Sol, they totally ignored us for 30 minutes ( we had asked for Agua con gas as we sat and they did bring that and a small plate of olives. After 30-35 minutes we got up, paid for the water and olives and started to leave. A young man said, “what is wrong” we said, we’ll we had a 6:00 reservation and you’re cleaning the restaurant!! He said, “ but is is early, we have our work to do”. We said, then don’t take early reservations and left. No stars....

El Salon has an interesting selection of well prepared and visually interesting dishes served by attentive staff. By far the best restaurant we visited in Barcelona.

We booked it online via trip advisor, it’s good that we can book the table in advance as I wasn’t able to call and make the reservation oversea.

This restaurant was way more than we could have expected! The staffs were very warm and friendly. The food was really good, especially the ravioli, it was absolutely amazing!

I also made a special request when I booked the table online as it was my boyfriend’s birthday. They prepared a birthday card to him with the dessert and we got a free shot!

I will definitely come again if I will travel to Barcelona next time :)

We had an outstanding meal here, I had sea bass wife had lamb, had risotto and mushroom appetizer and an apple tart for desert. Everything was great. Good bottle of local red and the bill was only 60. Service good too. Highly recommend this little place down a small alley in Gotic quarter.

Would not find this little restaurant wandering round, it is tucked away down a non descript street. I found on tripadvisor and booked via TheFork based on the reviews, they were right. Food was delicious, especially the ravioli special starter and the chicken stuffed with fruit. Decent size portions and quite rich food so you need a good appetite! The service was excellent, delightful waiters, spoke good English and recommended wine and food. Definitely would visit again.

We ordered from the al la carte menu and the steak was cooked to perfection, husband enjoyed the monkfish and prawns skewers. The wine was a reasonable €17. When we return to Barcelona we will visit again.

This restaurant has cooked some of the best food I've ever eaten. A perfect way to celebrate my 30th birthday with the fabulous meals cooked by El Salon. Seasonal and fresh ingredients cooked well. An absolute corker of a find. I would highly recommend checking this place out.
