Barcelona restaurants
Restaurante Can Fabes
(Sant Celoni)
Sant Joan 6
Tel. 938 672 851
Just a 50 km. drive away from Barcelona, Can Fabes is considered to be one of Barcelona's two top restaurants (the other is San Pau, see below). Under the solid leadership of Santi Santamaría, one of Europe's number one chefs, and set in his childhood home, Can Fabes offers customers the opportunity to continue their experience of elegance and style all night long, with five suites (from 180-280 euros per night) providing luxury accommodation to guests unwilling to conclude their magical experience so soon.
We recommend the menú degustación, which gives you a taste of sublime inventions created by this culinary genius Santamaría.

Restaurante San Pau Sant Pol de Mar
Nou, 10
Tel. 937 600 662


At long last women chefs are starting to enter the elite club of Catalan cuisine (see Restaurante Hispania below), and Carme Ruscadella is the best example. One of Spain's top and most international women chefs, her restaurant San Pau is set in a villa overlooking the sea and is a perfect example of how to create unique dishes by combining her imagination with traditional Catalan ingredients. Carme recently opened a second San Pau restaurant in Tokyo. If you are lucky to visit either, order a menú de degustación with storyboard included.
Restaurante El Raco d´en Freixa
Sant Elies, 22
Tel. 932 097 559
Ramon Freixa, another top chef, leads this restaurant and if you want to try one of Barcelona's elite establishments, this is probably the best as far as the price:quality ratio is concerned. Freixa's speciality is blending modern cooking techniques with traditional Catalan cooking, and the result is a selection of marvellous tastes and inventions. Leave room if you can to try some varieties of the exceptional cheese board at the end of your meal. Once again, we recommend the menú degustación which costs 65 euros.
Restaurante Neichel
Beltrán i Rozpide 1-5, Tel. 932 038 408.
One of Barcelona's classics, Jean Louis Neichel manages to combine Mediterranean tradition with French innovation, and he does so with great style. Very professional service and excellent deserts.
Restaurante Via Veneto
Ganduxer 10,
Tel. 932 007 244
For years Via Veneto has been one of Barcelona's best known and most reliable restaurants. Attentive service, a wonderful wine-list and a reputation for using first-quality materials to create imaginative dishes.
Restaurante Hispania (Arenys de Mar)
Real, 54,
Tel. 912 108 840
42 km from Barcelona centre, this restaurant is one of Barcelona's most prestigious and consolidated establishments. Also, it is quite a relief to find a relatively normal, if high-class, restaurant, serving good quality dishes with normal names. Run by two sisters who transformed a typical road-side bar into what is now considered to be one of Spain's finest restaurants serving typical Catalan food.
Restaurante Drolma
Paseo de Gracia 68 -70, Hotel Majestic,
Tel. 934 967 710
People looking for sophistication and luxury should try this restaurant set in one of Barcelona's best hotels, el Hotel Majestic (see hotels in Barcelona). The menu is short, offering classical dishes and is accompanied once again by an outstanding wine list.
