Dos Palillos - Restaurant

Dos Palillos - Barcelona

Dos Palillos - Barcelona

Dos Palillos - Barcelona

Dos Palillos or when traditional spanish tapas get inspired by delicate savors of Asia…

 

Albert Raurich has been working at El Bulli from 1997 to 2007 where he was head chief for the last 6 years of his journey with Ferran Adrià … That is to say that he knows quite well about cuisine inspiration and innovation…

 

At Dos Palillos the chef decided to get his inspiration from the far east cuisine, that is mostly from Japan, China, Thailand and Vietnam. And what an inspiration!!

 

Imagine Asian savors married with Spanish traditional tapas and products like seafoods, fish, fresh vegetables of the market, prown, tuna, meat…

Imagine now tempura, raw dishes, woked dishes, steamed dishes, grilled dishes..

 

Albert Raurich’s tapas are pure creativity and grace.. 

 

We loved fresh seaweed sunomono with molluscs, Japanese burger, meat Gyoza,Cantonese style Iberian pork, prawn steamed dumpling..

 

Two degustation menus at 55 and 75€ but they prefer to say one hour and half menu or two hours menu.. 

Lunchtime menu at 20€
In november 2012 Dos Palillos recieved its first Michelin star.

Address : C/ Elisabets, 9
Opening hours : Tuesday to saturday - Close sundays and mondays // On tuesdays and wednesdays: open from 7:30p.m. to 11:30p.m. // On thursdays, fridays and saturdays: open from 1:30p.m. to 3:30p.m. and from 7:30p.m. to 11:30p.m.

N° 2

Moments - Restaurant

The table on everyone’s lips..

Follow the B: We recommend this place

Moments - Barcelona

In the brand new and beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the table on everyone’s lips is with no doubt: Moments.
The Chef Carme Ruscalleda and her son Raül Balam are revisiting Catalan recipes and even inventing the first anti-aging menu of Barcelona..
On the Catalan side of the menu you will discover totally renewed classical dishes like Arroz caldoso de gamba con picada de pescador (rice dish with broth) -  Fricandó (veal stew) and suquet (fish stew) - Shrimp Tartar- Seabass with fig chutney and hibiscus salt - Veal Cheeks with turnip vegetable ravioli and red fruits..

A delight and lot of imagination!!
But even more visionary and trendy: a “anti-aging” menu where the food chosen by Carme Ruscalleda and Dr. Manuel Sanchez - head of the Anti-aging Unit Clinic Planas- , specialist in the anti-age treatments, conceal only the most miraculous properties to preserve an “iron constitution”.
In this menu, mini pizza pies with artichokes and the Joselito ham, or macaroni with buckwheat accompanied by scallops and vegetables… a great idea!

A very chic venue already awarded by 2 Michelin Stars in 2013.

Address : Passeig de Gràcia, 38-40
Opening hours : Lunch: 1:30pm-3:30pm Tuesday-Saturday // Dinner: 8:30pm-10:30pm Tuesday-Saturday // Closed Sundays and Mondays

Catalan chef Sergi Arola is a rising star of Spain's culinary world. Disciple of Ferran Adrià and Pierre Gagnaire, Sergi Arola offers here a fine “menú degustación pica-pica » that is a selection of tapas:

Patatas “Bravas de Arola”, fritas y rellenas de salsa picante y recubiertas de alioli -  A “Tartar de Filet Mignon con infusión de soja y jenjibre” .. And many others hot and cold surprises.

Passadís del Pep - Barcelona

Passadís del Pep - Barcelona

Passadís del Pep - Barcelona

No menu at Passadís del Pep but everyday a new selection of beautifully presented dishes, mostly seafood, certainly the best ones in Barcelona!!

 

Whatever is most fresh that day is what you get. Last time we were there, we had something like 7 or 8 dishes: clams, few kind of prawns, gambas, sea snail, squid, fried and crispy anchovies..

 

That is before to have to choose the mean dish: “carne o pescado”??

Take a fish this is the place for. 

 

We forgot to tell you that usually you will drink Cava (the local Champagne).. A lot of Cava..

 

The place is known to be really hard to find – down a tiny passageway (a passadis) – but it’s part of the pleasure to finally find a great “table”..

 

Hope you’ll find it!

Can Vallès - Barcelona

As you are walking down Aragó street, next to Rocafort, suddenly you find a restaurant called Can Vallès.

 

One might think that he has bumped into another Barcelona's bar, and here comes the big mistake. This restaurant with, at first gland, simple appearance, has a lot to show us.

 

The quality, detail and care of the dishes is equivalent to the outstanding restaurants in the city. Recipes made with the best products on the market.

 

Some dishes: chickpeas with lobster, pork feet cannelloni, fresh seafood, meat served on a hot stone, fresh salads and some very nice tapas!

 

The desserts...? Try the cheesecake or chocolate cake with cinnamon ice cream.

 

And.. the best wines selection!

 

Do not forget to book in advance as this is a small but very popular place .

Enjoy the rice 'Pelat' with prawns and clams in their quiet summer terrace…

El Racó del Mariner - Restaurant

From 5 in the morning to 5 in the evening..

El Racó del Mariner - Barcelona

El Racó del Mariner - Barcelona

El Racó del Mariner - Barcelona

El Racó del Mariner is certainly the fish restaurant the most “time capsule” of Barcelona, understand by this the most authentic.

 

As soon as unloaded from fishermen's boats, fish and seafood find themselves in the kitchen of El Racó del Mariner also located in the port. Difficult to find fresher! At the menu: fish of the day, fried fish, squids and shrimps, lobsters or a remarkable paella de marisco (seafood paella).

 

In short it's absolut pleasure in a restaurant / bar out of time, open from 5 in the morning to 5 in the evening, where you'll cross party animals finishing there night, fishermen and good local families. One of the pearls of the Barceloneta.

 

One finds the entrance by the Calle l'Escau.

Petit Comite - Barcelona

Petit Comitè - Barcelona

Traditional Catalan cooking in a contemporary design space at Petit Comité...

 

Local top chefs have started to move on…or back, as they return to the traditional dishes of the Catalan kitchen, reinventing old classics with great raw ingredients and improved techniques, treating your palate to new old specialties like poached eggs, stuffed breaded onions and traditional favorites including trinxat (chopped cabbage with potato and bacon) or caneloni amb béchamel de tòfona (canelonni with truffled béchamel) to the traditional dessert s like mel i mató (fresh cheese and honey),  crema catalana, pears in red wine and chocolate fritters.

 

It’s only the food that’s rustic, though – the interior is well up-to-date and keeps the rest of your senses firmly in a modern cosmopolitan setting.

 

This bistro is an attempt to open up to a less élite public, serving more affordable versions of the Catalan classics.

 

Dishes are small and meant to be ordered in a tapas style.. Petit Comitè is  serving around the clock from midday to midnight.

  1. Barcelona Best City of the world - Paul (28 Jul 2014 - 10:00)

    Barcelona is certainly my favourite city to live ... I lived there for one year and that was one of the best year of my life....Barcelona for ever!

  2. any idea? - sam (27 May 2014 - 09:45)

    heard about La Esquinica tapas bar? Any comments? thank you

  3. looks good - sally (12 May 2014 - 10:30)

    Good listing. Will try most as I can.

  4. Best restaurant in Barcelona - Robert Ricci (5 Feb 2014 - 09:45)

    I've been to lots and lots of restaurants but seriously nothing comes close to this one, quality and service and unique traditional cuisine with open kitchen. Loved it and one of my highlights of Barcelona.

  5. Expensive but well worth emptying your pockets - Pere Chias C (20 Jan 2014 - 16:37)

    If you are a complete foodie and you're in BCN you should definitely try out the next restaurants though I have to admit they are expensive but they're worth the effort: Sense presa, La fonda del gaig, paco meralgo, fermin piug, coure, bravo. Except for Paco Meralgo, these are not tapa restaurants but you'll cry with delight when you taste their food, all of those restaurants have an excellent service, high cleanliness and the food is purely sinful, it's so delicious.

    For something more economical but also nice and very in fashion amongst tourists there is La Cerveceria Catalana.

    Cheers hope you enjoy ;)

  6. Good restaurants in Barcelona - Inger Norås, Stavanger, Norway (16 Dec 2013 - 10:15)

    A hidden gem in Barcelona is "Meson Jesus" in Barri Gotic. This is not a fancy, expencive restaurant, but a cozy, kind of "homefeeling" place, a family-run place which have very good food and fantastic atmosphere. "Meson David" in El Raval is also a restaurant I would recommend, cheap and very nice food. The tapas bar "La Plata" is also an amazing little place with the best sardines I have ever tasted! I have also been to "Los Caracoles" (I see many people recommend this restaurant), but I was not very satisfied with the food, but this was in 2007, and since I will soon go to Barcelona again, maybe I should give it another try.

  7. I love this city! - Mike (2 Dec 2013 - 08:45)

    Wow, I was last week in Barcelona and I loved the restaurants of this city, specially Divinus restaurant! )

  8. Love food - foody (19 Nov 2013 - 12:30)

    love food and was suprised by the quality of the restaurants in Barcelona as well as the quality of the hotels. Great city for vacations. Of course Dos Palillos was my first stop. Great food, nice table and very nice people. A true must!

  9. went to Can Vallès .. great - vincent (18 Nov 2013 - 14:30)

    Can Vallès is really the perfect and true catalan restaurant.. only market and quality food. A pleasure.

  10. Great Restaurant - Brian Macias (10 Oct 2013 - 09:00)

    I HIGHLY recommend Ciudad Condal/Ciutat Condad just up the way from La Rambla! Yeah we had to wait to get a table, but the service and the food was outstanding! I went there with students in March 2012 and took my wife in June 2013. We loved it!!!

  11. cHILD FRIENDLY RESTRURANTS in Barcelona - Albet (2 Oct 2013 - 09:15)

    We are going to be in Barcelona from Oct 9th through the 12th, with our children and 3 grandchildren, ages 3,5 and 7. Please recommend a family friendly resterurant

  12. authentic rice dishes - yasho (30 Sep 2013 - 09:00)

    If what you are looking for is an authentic rice dish (paella variations), home-made (and made on the spot and from scratch), different every day of the week, go to La Barraqueta, Tordera Street 28 in Gràcia. The price? 7,5 euros per person. Seeing is believing. While you are at it you'd well asking for a couple of tapas (or starters) while you wait, such as grilled calamari or a lovely mushroom sauté. Plenty of good, resonable wines to choose from. Lovely square and surroundings even if the restaurant itself is not at all pretentious.

  13. Advise - gerard (3 Sep 2013 - 09:00)

    You must go to La Viblia Wine Restaurant & Showroom. They've got a beautiful terrace in a very special place!! It is located in the W Hotel but in the viewpoint side!! try the tapas and the paella! They are so nice! and their cocktails!

    It's one of my fav places in the city.

  14. Any advice - Dune (19 Aug 2013 - 10:00)

    I will be in Barcelona on the 30th-1st of Aug. I'm looking for a good local cusine restaurant that is not over-priced. Somewhere locals go.

  15. Best Restaurant - Lexie (9 Jul 2013 - 09:15)

    One of the best is L'Oliana Restaurant, we went there to have dinner and ended up going back for lunch the very last day, the best Cannelloni and Cod fritters I've ever tried.

  16. Mediterranian food - Clarince (3 Jul 2013 - 06:45)

    Barcelona is one of the best cities in the world, my passion is travelling around the world, that's my hobby, and I want to say that the restaurants are pretty cool, I was in Divinus with a really good Price, and I went to diner at Tenorio, both ones differents but so good.

  17. Italian good food in Barcelona - Raphael (7 Jun 2013 - 09:45)

    I use to go at Bimbas restaurant, is one of the best I tried in Barcelona and have an excelent client service. I was really surprised, and in addition has a beautiful cocktel area. :)

  18. WOW Trobador Rambla! - Charles (24 May 2013 - 10:15)

    Hi, I was with mi wife in Barcelona last week and we decided to go to Parc Güell.

    After this, we went to Catalunya Square and web ate at Trobador Restaurant, a really good place to go.

    We get so fun on this Trip, Barcelona is beautiful.

  19. Tenorio in the TOP10 - Richard (8 May 2013 - 08:30)

    I live in Barcelona for 10 years, and one of the best restaurants I've been is Tenorio, the service, food and place are really cool, sure that has to be on the list !

  20. La Tramoia Restaurant - Chris (11 Apr 2013 - 07:15)

    We went to Barcelona for Easter Holidays and we found La Tramoia in Rambla Catalunya. The food is really good and you can chose to eat brasserie or tapas. It has a terrace and the local it's really cool! All my family really enjoyed the restaurant and we recommend it.

  21. Somosrrostro in Barcelonneta - Judy Kugle (25 Mar 2013 - 08:15)

    Go as many times as you can. Of all the places to eat in Barcelona (I spent 5 weeks there). It remains my favorite food memory. Both Boqueria ans Santa Caterina markets should not be missed.

  22. Restaurante Quixote - manuel (7 Mar 2013 - 18:30)

    Gran sorpresa en la calle consell de cent 314, nos gusto mucho. Gran comida, muy buen trato y servicio correcto.
    Os lo recomiendo

  23. El ATN un descubrimiento fantástico - Elsa Robert (6 Mar 2013 - 15:15)

    El ATN, el mejor no, pero sí muy muy bueno. Lo descubrimos por casualidad. Uno de aquellos tesoros que no te imaginas que están en el centro esperándote. Muy buena comida (cocina del país con toques de autor), muy buen trato y servicio, precios equilibrados, local agradable, decoración cuidada, supercéntrico, al lado de la rambla, en la plaza Vila Madrid... Y habíamos pasado veces por allí, y sin fijarnos. Un restaurante que seguro merece la pena.

  24. UN 10 !! AL RESTAURANTE ANONIM - Patricia (8 Feb 2013 - 09:00)

    La semana pasada vi el restaurante anonim en un reportaje (precioso por cierto) redactado por Pau Arenos, que la verdad nunca me defrauda. Investigué un poco del restaurante por internet y los comentarios en general eran bastante positivos y el sabado nos fuimos a probarlo, y fue increible !! Un restaurante muy sencillo en el que se come muy muy bien !!! Una atencion rapida y diligente, economico, delicioso todo de principio a fin, una carta sencilla, corta y bien hecha. Para que mas ? Senti que era una cocina bastante honesta. Los propietarios vienen de Hofmann y es evidente su calidad. Hay que probar los langostinos, la mousse de foie con albaricoque, el milhojas de patatas, el atun, y el flan de mato que es increible.
    Gracias a Pau Arenos por descubrirnos restaurantes como este, y gracias al restaurante anonim. Volveremos.
    Patricia (Barcelona)

  25. la biblioteca gourmande restaurant / raval - Ivcar (7 Feb 2013 - 09:00)

    Nos encanto el estilo que tiene. La comida es genial, especialmente los buñuelos de bacalao. Ademas es un local muy bonito y diferente. El personal nos trato perfectamente en todo momento. Cuando volvamos a Barcelona repetiremos seguro!

  26. Cachitos the best - Alfredo parmigiano (2 Feb 2013 - 09:00)

    Cachitos is by far the best restaurant i have ever been in barcelona

  27. Dos Palillos - jim (30 Jan 2013 - 01:00)

    Dos Palillos is in my top ten for sure. I would add one in Boqueria but I don't remenber the name. next time then

  28. travel - unknown (26 Jan 2013 - 11:30)

    alva is awasome

  29. Mordisco - KNBM (19 Jan 2013 - 10:00)

    The restaurant Mordisco is simply wonderful.It is not cheap but very good.I recommend!!!!

  30. Es imposible sacar una lista de 10! - CRAM (19 Nov 2012 - 08:15)


    Me parece muy dificil sacar una lista de sólo 10 restaurantes. Por ejemplo, esta semana hemos estado Dias DeNorte, que es la antigua Moritz, pero la de abajo en Sant Pau, la de toda la vida...; y hemos cenado comido increíble... Hay muchos sitios que de verdad son muy buenos, y que están por conocer... Muy recomendable...!

  31. No se si es el número 1 pero es nuevo y promete.... - sandra_ludeña@hotmail.com (1 Nov 2012 - 08:30)

    Elsa y Fred, a la vuelta de la plaza Sant Pere, en un barrio céntrico pero alejado del bullicio del Born. Las mejores patatas bravas de la ciudad (después del bar Tomás), las mejores croquetas de ceps que he comido en mi vida, y la coca de roast beef...una caricia para los sentidos..!
    Sitio romántico, con sofás, parece un bistro francés. De verdad que recomiendo una visita.!

  32. Confirmo: el Tonka es el número 1 - Raquel Gomez (31 Oct 2012 - 08:00)

    Estoy totalmente de acuerdo con Arturo y me sorprende mucho que este pequeño restaurante no aparezca en vuestra selección. El Tonka es un restaurante donde se come extremadamente bien: los platos son sanos y sabrosos y me encanta el brunch del domingo, con su buffet libre lleno de colores. Pero lo más es la pastelería: no he encontrados postres así en ningún otro lugar de Barcelona. Deberías probarlos: tonkabar.com.

  33. Babeca - lengali1@gmail.com (29 Oct 2012 - 08:30)

    Comimos en Babeca, que rico¡¡¡¡ las tapas y el tiramisu, un premio para ellos¡¡¡

  34. Le mejor restaurante de Barcelona......Con Gracia - Steve Blood (25 Oct 2012 - 11:45)

    Barcelona is loaded with excellent restaurants, including those in this list, but for me considering quality of food, presentation and price, Con Gracia has them all beat. Ironically it's also No.1 in TripAdvisor....so naturally I was suspicious when we went there for the first time, but no it didn;'t disappoint. It's for me the most outstanding so far....we have yet to get around the rest!

  35. Best pizza - Eugene McGoldrick, Belfast (20 Oct 2012 - 16:00)

    Visited Barcelona last week, stopped of Cafe Icaria, Avinguda Icaria which sits beside the metro line of Ciutdella Villa Olimpica.

    I want to nominate the Cafe as the best pizza I received that week. Absolutely excellent. Not only brilliant, but 2 full size pizzas, 2 coke for 17 Euro. Service also with a smile and the guy behind the counter asked us if all was fine - he was so chuffed we we indicated a real satisfaction.

    Hope you manage to spread the word. I tried to contact the Cafe but couldn't - perhaps you could pass on this comment.

    Cheers

    Eugene & Margaret
    Belfast

  36. El mejor restaurante de Barcelona - Arturo (18 Oct 2012 - 08:15)

    In my opinion, the best restaurant of Barcelona is Tonka, Carrer Marquès del Campo Sagrado 27, near Sant Antoni market. Forget the super design, the noise, and the "movida" you usually find in town: here, you can sit quietly, having conversation with your friends and enjoying the wonderful food, that is hand-made, healthy and tasty. Everybody has many opcions, vegetarians included. And you should really taste the cakes and the sunday brunch.

  37. Market - R-Events (11 Oct 2012 - 10:15)

    We had dinner at Market last night and it was amazing, fantastic, delicious.
    Loved it.

  38. Restaurante Leku les corts - Noemi (9 Sep 2012 - 09:00)

    Me he quedado gratamente sorprendida por lo bien que he comido por la amabilidad con que nos han tratado recomiendo este pequeño restaurante la calidad de la comida es inmejorable.

  39. Best meat in the city!! - Obama (9 Sep 2012 - 09:00)

    Don´t miss restaurant Igueldo. The t-bone for two people is the best I ever tried!

  40. Excellent repas, et trés bon qualité prix! - sandy paris (4 Sep 2012 - 08:30)

    Nous nous sommes rendu au restaurant le Chardonnay en famille cet été! Les enfants y sont trés bien accueillit, le repas proposé pour notre fils correspondait à ce qu'aime un enfant. Les produits sont délicieusement bien préparé et frais, nous retenons le plat que nous avons déguster, la paella était excellente. Le service est rapide, le personne aimable!!!!!!!!!!!! Un seul petit bémole, la climatisation n'était pas à bonne température, la chaleur s'est faite un peu ressentir, mais nous avons tout de même apprécié la soirée!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. Best pizza ever - Jon (28 Aug 2012 - 21:00)

    We stayed at the Claris Hotel in C/Pau Claris, and the doorman recommend us to try the Pizzeria Smilo close to the hotel.
    Fortunate experience, the Pizza is absolutely excellent, Thin and crispy, The service is nice and friendly.
    just to say, we went there 3 times during the week.

  42. My favourite tapas in Barcelona - Josh (8 Jul 2012 - 06:15)

    My favourite out of this list is definitely Quimet Quimet. It is without doubt the most exciting place to eat in Barcelona.

    I also had another great experience at a cooking class I took called ‘Papa Serra – Culinary Adventures in Barcelona’. It was during this class that I learnt how to make what was quite possibly the best tapa i tried in Barcelona. It was chicken poached in wine and lemon then mixed with saffron yogurt, black grapes and toasted almonds. Then it was wrapped in a radicchio and lightly braised in the poaching liquid. Then we dipped it in a spice mix of fennel seeds, bee pollen and lemon zest. It was so delicious and a highlight of our holiday!

  43. what a wonderful city - Frida (28 Jun 2012 - 08:30)

    every time i go to barcelona it surprises me in a good way, i see the crisis, but beyond the bad times new ideas bloom like springtime. although we always enjoy our classics in barcelona, like the cova fumada or el xapanyet, this time we discover a new one thanks to those comments below, la pepita, ran by a young lovely couple who gives a personal treat to the tapas, freshness, friendly staff and very nice price. it remind me (with a modern touch) to those old bars we used to go in carer ample, now it just rests la plata, still the same! so we appreciate your comments and the spirit of la pepita, because you made us have a new favorite in barcelona where even the steak tartar made me travel to my childhood.amazing.

  44. La Vietnamita... - Don (10 Jun 2012 - 09:45)

    There is a much better Vietnames/ Thai take- away place on Plaça de la Revolució de Setembre de 1868, just nearby. La Vietnamita is not hopeless but they have small and watery portions, better suitable for hippies.

  45. Vietnamese in Barcelona - YummyYummy! (30 May 2012 - 11:30)

    Another great restaurant to add to this list is LaVietnamita. I came across it when I was visiting the enchanting barrio de Gracia. It is a new, different restaurant which specialises in Vietnamese food. The atmosphere is fun and young, and the decoration in the restaurant is lovely. Being self-service, the food was prepared quickly and the staff were all very friendly! The food was a pleasant surprise, I had an excellent curry and a homemade lemonade. So, if you're looking for something different in Barcelona, I highly reccomend LaVietnamita.

  47. RISTORANTE NECTARI A BARCELLONA - laura - italy (3 May 2012 - 08:00)

    Se siete a Barcellona non potete evitare di cenare al ristorante NECTARI. Il locale si trova nelle vicinanze di Placa Espanya. Ha pochi coperti percui è meglio prenotare. Il cibo è sublime. Tutti gli ingredienti sono di alta qualità, nonostante ciò i prezzi sono più che ragionevoli. Il dessert NECTARI è una delizia per il palato. Ottimo!! Complimenti allo chef.

  49. tapas!!!!!!! - >Tim (5 Apr 2012 - 07:00)

    up to my early experience, I just went to cal pep, too busy, too many tourists. I can recommend la Pepita as others did before here, it was near our hotelcasa Fuster and bumped into by surprise, we repeated before leaving, it should be on the top ten list for three clear reasons *real good tapas for veryaforable prices *full of local&beautiful people &*they treat you before like a person than a tourist, which catalan guy eats 6 peaces of bread by its own? they dont take profit of us and take time to explain you the stuff. worst the mussels with orange sauce, to spiced for us & best, golden pepita and vip croquette. 100% recommendable. by Tim,
