Cuines Santa-Caterina - Barcelona

Cuines Santa Caterina is located in the brand new Santa Caterina's market - renovated by top architects Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue of EMBT - in El Born district.

 

Cuines means kitchens in Catalan. Cuines with a S because this restaurant offers 4 different types of kitchens: Asian, Mediterranean, Italian and vegetarian…

 

Fusion food starts to be one of Barcelona’s restaurants trademarks since one year or two. At Cuines Santa-Catarina we are pleased to tell you that the bet is successful. No surprise Cuines is part of Tragaluz Group known for others refined places like: Omm hotel, Bestial, Negro, Tragaluz, Agua...

 

We like very much the beautiful decoration which reminded Scandinavian interior design by its simplicity of the materials made of wood, stone, Ficus trees planted in between tables, columns of light and an entire wall composed of shelves stacked with stocks of wine, olive oil, vinegars, flours...

 

As we said food is very imaginative and of course coming directly from the market. Why not mix a bit of everything? Try delicious vegetarian salads like one with melted cheese, nuts and dates (6€), green asparagus perfectly grilled at la plancha with spicy Romesco sauce (7€), assortment of antipasto (11€). Then have perfect risotto like the one with langoustines (10€), suquet de rap (10€), gambas with garlic (12€) or head Japan and take not the best one but very fresh sushi and maki (from 10 to 20€).

 

At these prices you understand that Cuines Santa-Caterina became rapidly the hottest place in town appreciated by local’s business man as well as by well informed tourists ;-)

The restaurant is non smoker but you can have tapas at the entrance bar where smoking is allowed and tapas very good!!.

Perfect place at noon. Go there at 1pm because at 2pm it’s full.

Went to the adjacent market that was just shutting down for the afternoon. Had a delicious salad with falafel patties and sizzling shrimp with roasted garlic perfectly cooked with some crusty fresh bread. Delicious- would highly recommend.

  2. Parfait - Amazone (4 Jul 2012 - 09:00)

    Je ne suis vraiment pas d'accord!! effectivement, vu le monde, les serveurs sont un peu rapide, mais chaque type de cuisine a son chef et le cochon de lait est vraiment un delice!! Niveau cantine, pour le bruit, ok, mais la qualité des plats, qui sont excusivement preparé a partir de produit du marché attenant, est vraiment top, dommage que je ne puisse pas poster des photos de ce que j'avais dans mon assiette...

  3. cuisine - stefan (19 Apr 2012 - 08:00)

    Cadre agréable mais cuisine qui ne vaut guère mieux qu'une cantine! on m'a servi une purée liquide et sans gout, des plats pas très copieux, pas de générosité, accueil assez froid et mécanique, c'est encore une de ces entreprises qui favorise le profit au dépend de tout le reste!
    On nous a apporté 4 morceaux de pains à moitié racis qui nous ont été facturé 2 euros sans que cela soit notifié nul part! donc refusez leur pain mais c'est vrai que les plats étant un peu juste on a tendance à le manger!
    aucune carte des boissons mise à part le vin; impossible de prendre un tapas en salle; au final on se croirait chez Flunch mais en moins bien!
    à éviter absolument donc!

  4. Lobster Dinner - Frank and Agatha Rasmussen (1 Oct 2011 - 06:15)

    On thursday the 22nd of September, we went to the restaurant, that had been highly recommended by our son !
    We were the first ones there and ordered the grilled lobster.
    When the lobster arrived it tasted of petroleum, we complained to the waiter, to no avail, they all insisted that there was nothing wrong with the lobster.
    However, we could not eat it and ordered something else, after having asked them to taste it, which they would not!
    To our big surprise when we got the bill not only did they charge for the lobster , they claimed that we had eaten it!!!
    We refused to pay for the lobster, and told them that they could call the police if they wanted to, which they actually did! (or probalby not).
    At this point we just paid the bill and left, but we feel reallly, really, cheated, and think that people should know that they could run into this, if they are they are the first ones to arrive!
    We really feel bad about this experience, as we were made to feeel as liers!
    All in all a very bad experience that we would not recommend to anybody!

  5. poco y caro - gabriela (21 Sep 2011 - 08:15)

    los platos vienen bastante escuálidos, la garzona retira platos y jarra de sangría (que parece jugo para niños) a medio consumir (porque afuera hay cola esperando por una mesa)...pero sin consentimiento de quienes estábamos cenando. Está explícito que no se cobra el pan, sin embargo en la boleta apareció costo por concepto de pan! Finalmente, gran cola y espera, atención irrespetuosa y sensación de estar en un tobogán para terminar lo antes posible.

  6. Resto - Corinne (24 Aug 2011 - 14:15)

    Nous avons dine dans ce resto le mercredi 09 aout 2011 c est une usine ! Mal aimable ! Plats apportes un par un nous étions 4 et par politesse j ai attendu pour manger que nous ayions tous nos assiettes!!!! Erreur mon plat était froid! Quelle déception pour résume cher sans intérêts nous n y retournerons pas

  7. Restaurant Santa Catrina - Touriste de France (13 Aug 2011 - 10:45)

    Restaurant sympa (le cadre) mais rien à manger dans l'assiette, poison cru 14 euro = 6 petites tranches à paris c'est un menu complet!! une paella à 19 euro 2 crevettes et 3 coquillages et un peu de riz une attente de 20 MIN hum, pimietos à 9 euro le vrais prix et de 3 à 5 euro dans la ville et dans ma salade j'ai trouver une chenille on me dit que c'est natural, en geste commercial on a eu deux boules de glace, en conclusion c'est aussi un attrape touristes car pas un seul espagnole en vu dans la salle, c'est sure c'est à voir à vous de juger.

  8. Cuines Santa Caterina - Mike Bailey (3 Aug 2011 - 10:45)

    Nice restaurant, awful service. They think they are so popular that they don't need to offer you drinks, they bring the food out willy nilly so you can end up watching your fellow diners eat, then they get to watch you when you get yours (aparently it's 'the rule' according to one of the waiting staff. If you complain they will suddenly pretend they don't speak English, and if that makes you angry expect to be followed out of the restaurant and challenged by the male staff! It takes arrogance to a new level. Avoid this place.

  9. Cuines Santa Caterina - Javier (30 Jul 2011 - 12:00)

    Podria ser un excelente restaurante, sobre todo por la decoración y la relación calidad precio de la comida. El problema es que mayoritariamente el servicio carece de educación. Solo una camarera de las que nos sirvieron fue eficiente, el resto unos mal educados e incompetentes.

  10. Excellent Food - Rod (28 Jun 2011 - 14:00)

    This place was recommended to us on our stay in Barcelona. Fantastc larger portions of tapas. Had the gyoza which was great and calamari with asparagus which was very tasty and tender. Also had the Pork rack for 2 which was amazingly tender. Would highly recommend this to anybody. Simple ingredients that are super fresh. Not a restaurant that over does it with too many flavours. Simple, tasty with a focus on the produce that they use. The decor is also very nice. Not that noisy as some people say, but then again, there is no pleasing some people who wouldn't know quality restaurant food if it slapped them in the face. Our best food experience in Barcelona to date.

  11. Delusione - Bruna - Italia (23 May 2011 - 17:15)

    Purtroppo il mio commento su questo ristorante non è affatto lusinghiero, anzi....
    Mi è successo in questo ristorante quello che non mi è mai successo nei miei innumerevoli viaggi, dopo 20 minuti me ne sono andata. Siamo entrati, io e mio marito, con tanto entusiasmo dopo aver letto il giudizio dato da questo sito sul ristorante. Una gentilissima signora che è posta alla cassa all'entrata ci ha fatto immediatamente accomodare e ci ha dato il menù che noi abbiamo scelto in lingua francese in quanto non era disponibile in italiano. Dopo forse 1 minuto e mezzo si è avvicinata una cameriera chiedendoci di ordinare da bere. Noi abbiamo chiesto qualche minuto per capire come funzionava il menù dovendoci districare tra tante possibilità (cucina orientale, mediterranea, vegeteriana...) e poter accompagnare in degno modo il pranzo anche con le bevande. Lei ha avuto un gesto di rabbia accompagnandolo con qualcosa detto in spagnolo ed a bassa voce. Da quel momento non l'abbiamo più vista e dopo oltre 20 min. di attesa e constatando che continuava a servire tutti gli altri tavoli meno che il ns. abbiamo deciso di lasciare il locale. Comportamento indegno anche perchè non è il cliente che deve essere al servizio del cameriere!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Loved it First time, never going again after second time - Suse (9 May 2011 - 21:15)

    Well... Sometimes First impressions don't last. After ny First visit to the cantina I loved it. Great food. Great service. Got the steamed mussels and creme catalan for dessert. Absolutly excellent atmosphere. As a turist you find too many expensive and bad places that you never want to visit again, but this place I wanted to visit again and the sooner the better. So I went the day after. Ordered the goat and.... Got soooo disapointed. I seldom complain at restaurants, but I knew this place could serve good food, so I asked if this really could be right.... This the waitors basically made a mockery of and hence after hardly looked to our side. So we left. Hungry and without having dessert... And leaving tips!

  14. Restaurant Cuina Santa Cathérina Barcelone - Gérard Bessière (9 May 2011 - 21:15)

    Nous avons diné 2 fois dans ce restaurant, attiré par son classement dans le top 10 des restaurants barcelonais. Le cadre est original et la cuisine est correcte, même s'il a fallut rechauffer certains plats parvenus très tièdes.En revanche, le service est déplorable,négligeant, anarchique et presque méprisant.On a le sentiment très (trop ) net d'être un numéro? Catastrophique.
    Pour l'addition, 1 euro à régler d'autorité en plus ,pour une cause indéterminée.
    Nous n'y retournerons plus.Trop désagréable.
    Dommage car nous sommes plutôt bon public.

  15. Lovely!Even if you have Kids! - Bcn Girl (6 May 2011 - 09:00)

    I live in Barcelona, and this is one of my favourite places to go! Yes is always Packed! Yes is a bit Price for some. Yes sometimes a bit noise and the waiters cold be more friendly, but the FOOD is FRESH! Tasty and the choice of dishes spoils you.
    Every time we go we try something different and so far there was nothing that wasn't great, presentation fab and for me very reasonable price.
    Plus you can go with kids and they love it!
    Strange for me that some people have bad reviews about this place, them again I suppose some people will have bad reviews pretty much about any place!
    GO and enjoy fresh, tasty and lovely food!

  16. Cuines Santa Caterina - Ana (1 May 2011 - 10:30)

    We ate there twice, and were delighted every time.
    On our first evening, we had succulant roasted lamb with crispy potatoes, steamed mussels and some increcibly rich cheese cake, as well as half a litre of the very acceptable white house wine.
    On our second evening, it was grilled baby calamary with green asparagus and artichokes with clams and ham, a selection of cheese (manchego of different ages, something cheddar-like, fresh fruit and a jam made from quince and spices) as well as the mentioned wine and half a litre of bottled sparkling water (vichy catalan). Then we shared the citrus-y creme catalan and had two glasses of excellent cava - all in all, we payed 50 euro. (Not to mention the selection of breads!) We SO would love to come back!!!

  17. 6 Gambas for 18 euros !!! - Ludovic (from Belgium) (26 Apr 2011 - 10:15)

    I went to Cuines Santa-Caterina on this 25 April. First I was a bit surprised about the price for Gambas with Garlic...it was about 18 euros... but I took the risk to take it thinking that for this price I would receive a good portion of gambas...but I was really surprised when I received finaly only 6 gambas.. oh yes in the plate it looked big because they let the shrimp heads..that for sure I don't eat. So maybe other dishes are good but never take the gambas there...! Restaurant was also too crowded and too noisy...it seems popular but I'm a bit surprised..because quality/quantity/price ration is for me not so good...

  18. Cuines Sta Caterina - Angela (30 Mar 2011 - 08:45)

    If you understand the concept it is a top restaurant. We've frequented this restaurant for over 2 years and no complaints.
    The concept means that you have to read properly what the menue offers.
    A great variety of cuisines. And great quality!
    The architecture inside is inspirational. I have recommended this restaurant to many friends meanwhile and everybody came back very enthousiastic.
    Even with our granddaughter of 9 yrs now it still is a great place to eat.
    The public in general is not 60+, but if you are that age or older you will be treated as a king/queen like everybody else.
    Good luck with you kitchen and keep on! Within 2 years we will be bact again!

  19. Not good - McNamara (12 Feb 2011 - 09:30)

    Not a very European restaurant, as they care more about the volume of the people they serve then the quality of food. The steak was very, very rare and when they took it back to fix it, it came back still as rare. Worst meal in Barcelona, and the most expensive.

  20. Oui, à faire. - Quenelle67 (1 Feb 2011 - 10:30)

    Nous avons dîné dans ce restaurant avec ma chérie. Très belle déco, vraiment originale avec vue sur le hall du marché St Caterina (fermé le soir bien sûr). Cuisine fusion diversifiée et agréable. Je rejoins certaines critiques qui avancent que certains plats ne sont pas assez copieux compte tenu du prix (exemple morceau de boeuf/sauce béarnaise + 6 frites). D'autres plats passent mieux, salade avec chèvre fondu à 8,50 euros, très bonne. Dose de Moussaka (10,20 euros) un peu légère, donc nous avons rajouté une poêlée de légumes verts (10 euros). Vin à 15 euros la bouteille, bon et accessible. Le plus gros défaut de Santa Caterina Cuines ? Trop de Français...;-). A faire, comptez 40 euros par personne, entrée/plat/dessert et vin.

  21. beau et bon! - de passage à Barcelone (7 Dec 2010 - 13:45)

    Nous étions ravis d'y faire une halte.. une cuisine de toutes les couleurs et pour tous les goûts - sushi, med, végétarien... dans un cadre génial.. je ne vois pas ce que l'on peut demander de plus.. je trouve les critiques un peu sévères pour une fois que cela sort du lot..

  22. très bel endroit - sophie (28 Sep 2010 - 10:00)

    l'endroit est vraiment magnifique avec une baie vitrée sur le marché et la cuisine est étonnante. Plein de petits plats différents qui sentent bons le sud. prix ok. ne pas hésiter.
    Sophie de passage dans cette magnifique ville de Barcelone.

  23. cher,peu copieux et service inexistant - celine (27 Jul 2010 - 15:30)

    tout d'abord une attente de 45 min, une fois installés nous avons du réclamer la carte des boissons ! Nous n'avons pas tous était servi en même temps,de plus un plat à du être réclamé car ils l'avaient oublié ! dans les assiètes c'etait trés peu copieux !!!!! et la cerise sur le gateau : 5euros ajouté sur la facture pour les petits morceaux de pain mis a table (non demandé!) et le service !! Le service inexistant : couverts mis au milieu de la table ! a nous de se servir !
    j'y étais allé il y a 4 ans et j'avais aprécier ! mais cette année c'était horrible ! je ne recommende pas ce restaurant ! c'est cher pour ce que c'est !

  24. Cuines Santa-Caterina is just great - tom (24 Jul 2010 - 14:46)

    we enjoyed very much Cuines Santa-Caterina for its types of cuisine and design of the place.. loved the market as well.. recommend

  25. Très bon mais...!!! - Patrick de Nancy (24 Jul 2010 - 14:39)

    Restaurant qui sert une nourriture bonne mais pas vraiment donné, voir même cher au goût de mon ami et moi-même. Le plat de langoustine et riz dont vous parlez côute aujourd'hui 16.50€ et ce n'est vraiment pas bien garni. Nous avons pris du porcelet roti, qui était accompagné de 2 quartiers de pomme de terre pour 16.60€ et mon ami un tout petit petit aloyau de boeuf avec 6 potatoes pour 18.50€, pas vraiment donné.

    Nous le recommandons très moyennement, pour nous il s'agit d'un resto piège à touristes, on souhaiterait avoir des petits restos sympas sans prétentions, ni artifices avec des tarifs raisonnables.

  26. Las bebidas CARISIMAS - Juan (3 Jan 2010 - 19:00)

    Por cada caña de cerveza te cobran mas de tres Euros osea que de barato nada.

  27. Cuines Santa-Caterina - Pierre (1 Dec 2009 - 11:15)

    Cuines Santa-Caterina est un superbe restaurant à Barcelone.. nous vous le conseillons...

  28. Good restaurant - Timo (2 Oct 2009 - 12:30)

    Really good place! Food is excellent and cheep! We ate for only 60 Euro 2 courses and a bottle of wine. The layout of the restaurant is really nice especially the open kitchen. When you are in Barcelona and you are looking for places to eat you should at least go once to this restaurant.

  29. cuines santa caterina - ivntylr (13 Jul 2009 - 15:12)

    have been going to this restaurant for the last five years and it has never disappointed. the food is superb - esp. the suckling pig!! a great way to eat is to have tapas in the bar, then move on to the restaurant for main course. atmosphere is buzzing and the service is always friendly. it gets really busy though, so be prepared for a bit of a wait - but the service in the bar means you'll always have a drink!!!!

  30. Cuines santa caterina - tpuro (22 Nov 2008 - 10:11)

    superbe déco... on voit l'animation du marché au travers d'une vitre... très sympa... cuisine très respectable... bref un bon moment dans un bel endroit... allez y!!

  31. Cuines Santa-Caterina - Constantin (11 Nov 2008 - 15:58)

    Excellent and pleasent and original place, delicious food, nice service, deliourous "crema catalana". Don't hesitate to give it a try! Be prepared to wait a bit but it worths it.

  32. Cuidado - PEP ARMENGOL (11 Nov 2008 - 00:37)

    COCINA Y TRATO EXQUISITO EN LA BARRA, FELICIDADES AL COCINERO Y AL SERVICIO PERO CUIDADO CUANDO UNO DE MIS ACOMPAÑANTES INTENTO VISITAR EL INTERIOR DEL RESTAURANT FUE INCREPADO POR UNA DE LAS CAMARERAS DE FORMA GROSERA Y NO DE ACORDE CON EL ESTILO QUE NTENTA TENER EL LOCAL ARGUMENTANDO QUE SIN MESA NO PODIA ACCEDER AL INTERIOR, EL ENCARGADO ARGUMENTO QUE HAN TENIDO PROBLEMAS DE HURTOS EN EL INTERIOR.
    SRS A PARTIR DE UN PRECIO ESTA OBLIGADOS A DISPENSAR UN TRATO COMO MNIMO EDUCADO A LOS CLIENTES, AUNQUE IGUAL ESTARIA BIEN RECUPERAR LAS ANTIGUAS TABERNAS DONDE TODO VALE.

  33. Cuines - Marc (23 Jul 2008 - 09:17)

    Restaurant ben molt agradable, el servei nmolt amable, la cuina molt bona i la carta molt variada. És un troballa. Molt bo i a bon preu. Llàstima que no es pugui reservar.

  34. Patrizia - Maurizio (11 Apr 2008 - 17:37)

    Patrizia (the chef) sei bravissima e bella. Great food, excellent atmosphere!

  35. Cuines Santa CATERINA - BURNS (29 Jan 2008 - 12:51)

    We went to this resturant twice in three days as it was fantastic with a superb atmosphere. It offers a great tapas menu which we used as a starter and then the main menu is brillaint and the food cooked to a high quality. The suckling pig was just beautiful. We cannot recommend this enough if you are looking for a lively yet intimate dining experience. We sat at the kitchen bar which has changed my views on this way of seating. MUST GO

  36. Cuines - Julie & Micheline (24 Jan 2008 - 19:50)

    Essayez sans aucune crainte le tartare de thon sur quacamole ou autre poisson cru, les pâtes sont fraiches, le décor en bois très convivial, bref que du plaisir !

  37. Resto génial !! - Jr.M (17 Jul 2007 - 13:35)

    Sur les conseils De Barcelona.com, je suis allé déjeuner à Cuines Santa-Caterina avec ma petite amie, fin juin.
    Le lieu n'est pas difficile à trouver, et très atypique puisque situé dans le marché couvert de Santa-Caterina.
    Les plats sont tous succulents, mention spéciale aux pates aux truffes !! Ils sont tous appétissants, le cadre est vraiment beau, le personnel jeune et très sympatique.
    Bref je recommande vraiment à 200% ce restaurant, vous ne pouvez pas être déçu !!
    Attention, j'ai appelé pour réserver, on m'a dit que ce n'était pas possible. Il faut donc arriver assez tôt après l'ouverture, qui est à 13h, car le restaurant se remplit très vite.

  38. cuines santa caterina - gabry (23 Mar 2007 - 22:45)

    glamurous atmosphere, very nice place, wonderfull food...
    and very handsom boys!!!

  39. fantastic food - Sue (17 Aug 2006 - 17:32)

    great food and the choice is fantastic! Great prices and you can see the food being cooked.Very modern and a great atmousphere they do not take bookings so get there early and try the crema catalana and the tempura prawns.

  40. cuines - ethan (18 Jul 2006 - 11:13)

    very nice and very good.. go there!!

  41. Cuines Santa-Caterina - James (4 May 2006 - 14:28)
