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

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!

Food was creative and really good. We especially liked the bacalao and the special salad with freshly made burrata!

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....

We went to the Estrella on a friend's recommendation and had high expectations. When reserving online, we wrote in the comments box that one of us (we were two) was vegetarian. This should have elicited a response from the restaurant if they do not accommodate vegetarians, or they should have had at least one vegetarian main dish option. They did not. They came up with an adequate (but not exciting) starter dish, but offered mushrooms as the main dish. Mushrooms alone. We asked that they make a dish including mushrooms, as a plate of mushrooms does not make a main dish. They came up with adding chard. What they served was a plate of chopped chard and mushrooms drowning in butter. This was the least interesting "vegetarian" dish ever offered us by nonvegetarian restaurants. And, the mushrooms were very standard "button mushrooms," not even wild mushrooms or mixed mushrooms. Finally, to top this all off, they charged as much for that dish as they did for the nonvegetrian main dish (fish).

Delicious lunch at La Estrella! The owner made a big effort to explain the dishes to us in English and as a result we chose well and enjoyed our meal very much.

Good quality, good service and nice atmosphere. A little bit overpriced though, I hate when they give you bread without even ask and then they make you pay for it. Overall nice experience.

Wonderful food - simple, excellent and rare raw products. And a great bottle of a hard to find, natural wine. Friendly, unobtrusive service - what else could one ask for?
