Aunque la vorágine de nuevas aperturas a menudo nos lo impida, siempre es un buen momento para redescubrir los clásicos. Y este restaurante con sede en el Born abierto en 1924, a pocos pasos de la Estació de França, es un buen ejemplo de que la cocina excelente evoluciona con los tiempos sin perder su esencia. La exquisitez es la seña de identidad de un local amplio y de techos altos, que conserva la estructura del majestuoso local original. Su chef, Pepi Villada, ofrece una cocina tradicional y mediterránea basada en el mejor producto, incluyendo unos pescados deliciosos y carnes de excepción.

La carrillera cocida en su jugo nada menos que durante 18 horas es un ejemplo del buen hacer de una chef que eleva la cocina de la abuela a la categoría de magia. Pero también lo son sus pescados: desde el bacalao confitado con ‘rossinyols’ y gambita fresca a otros que dan una vuelta de tuerca al recetario tradicional, como los garbanzos minis con salsa de gambas y gratinados con muselina de ajos. Todo ello, en una zona con un glamour incontestable y un aire atemporal que enamorará a propios y extraños.

INSIDER tip

La carrillera cocinada durante 18 horas es un plato imprescindible

Fantastic restaurant, with lovely ambience and service and beautiful fresh dishes. Can’t believe there weren’t more people there, though difficult times in Barcelona currently...can only say go there! Have tried a lot of restaurants here over the last few weeks and this is in the top two for sure...

This was recommended by a friend for its cod. It is down a side street close to the station and we were the first there at 8:45pm. The food was superb, we both had the specials, which were seasonal (tomatoes in season). It was well presented food and they were proud to say that desserts were made in-house. A really good meal, slightly off the normal tourist areas. We can recommend the fish.

Outstanding!!!!!
After upscaled ( and priced) Hisop., along with traditional Set Portes) This is the VERY BEST RESTAURANT IN BARCELONA everything suggested ( we asked) was delicious, should I say stupidly DELICIOUS .
Food brought from small producers.
Wine espectacular and more than attractive price.
Owner comes to each table to explain what they got for today.
Reasonable price. Quality and freshness of the food 10.
Keep in mind I’m a LOCAL and I have been in places in Barcelona.....
Good luck

Enjoyed the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff. Prices are very acceptable. Including some delicious starters we paid around 50 Eur p/p. Try the goose egg with truffle!

Went there for lunch around 130pm and the place was empty. Reserved the previous night but cancelled it as there wasn’t anyone inside eating when we went and the area is quite dim outside including the narrow street leading to the restaurant. I’m a restaurateur myself and would recommend to the owner if he can possibly brighten up the outside entrance to highlight the place and make it more attracting.... The owner simply is great personally handling customers and making off the menu recommendations..... I’ll be back next time I’m in Barcelona....
