Bar Cañete

Classic and contemporary Catalan tapas

Bar Cañete: Like so many of Barcelona’s best establishments, this traditional yet trendy tapas bar and restaurant entered the world as a small family-run affair. Over the years it’s garnered a strong reputation amongst local gourmands and in-the-know travellers who want to eat quality Spanish cuisine. There are two very separate dining spaces: the long narrow bar overlooks the kitchen where chefs jostle flaming frying pans and slice buttery slithers of jamón off the bone, and the more formal dining room is all dark wood and leather with moody lighting and sultry jazz tones.

 

The waiters run around hurriedly and elegantly in their smart white jackets and restaurant manager Don Julio can be seen barking orders like some kind of Navy officer. They thrive off the buzz and the pressure of service, providing attentive service in a fun and informal style that adds an air of theatre to the whole experience. It all feels very classic and romantic, like stepping back in time to the good old days of Spain, but the menu feels fresh and playful. The chefs clearly aren’t afraid to play around with ingredients, although they never stay too far from the core of what makes this food so great.

 

Spanish staples are given new leases of life, such as the potato croquettes enhanced with lobster and a few other “secret ingredients”, and wild tuna tartare with mascarpone and wild trout caviar. It’s impressive cooking, it’s delicious and hearty cooking, but it’s not about reinventing the wheel. Instead it’s about showcasing the very best of Catalonia’s quality produce, whether it be fish, seafood, meat or vegetables.

Other must-eat dishes include big flavours like wild mushrooms with crispy Iberian pork jowls, Catalan ‘fricandó’ (meat stew), and seafood delights such as "shrimp that gets in at 8, fresh from the sea to the plate”.

 

The wine menu itself is a thing of beauty, with a spectacular array of references from Spain’s finest DOs, as well as a healthy smattering from France. The staff are knowledgable and confident when making recommendations, which makes it a lot easier when trying to choose from so many options.

 

Conclusion: Bar Cañete offers everything you could wish for from an authentic Spanish dining experience: ambience, energy, passionate cooking and big flavours. This is a shrine to the simple joy of eating.

We ate at Cañete last Saturday night and had Hector and Angel both help in serving us. They were fun, helpful in making selections and made our night so memorable.

Tonight (Monday) we had some unnamed server, who barely gave us a moment. Seemed more to care about the wealthy New York couple that came in after us which were next to us, and gave them the squid sandwich that 30 minutes before he said they were out of.

Our last night in Barcelona and now instead of Cañete being our go to place, has left a bitter taste in our mouths. Not to mention the first night we gave a 25% tip, so to be treated like a homeless couple begging for food does not make us want to come back - and if we do, need to make sure Hector and Angel are working first, otherwise - no thank you.

Hello Susan, The green tourist bus line is no longer in service and will not be next April. However, the red line now passes through the north of the city, where the green line used to run. Enjoy your visit!

Will the green line be running on April 1? If not, is there a price reduction due to this reduced service?

Dla mnie Barcelona to miasto Hiszpanii i wiele ciekawych zabytków oraz dużo turystów jest w nim tak na prawdę i myślę że jeszcze bym chciał tam polecieć bo chcę zwiedzić muzeum FC Barcelony i przejechać się kolejką linową jaka to jest atrakcja dla mnie najbardziej w tym ale wiem że dużo zwiedziłem z Adamem tych właśnie miejsc chociaż stałem się dobrym podróżnikiem ale radość we mnie jest w tym to jest najważniejsze w moim życiu codziennym Ja z Adamem stworzyłem najlepszą grupę przyjaciół w tej Hiszpanii tam na plaży Barceloneta skradłem całusy pięknym dziewczynom bo mi się podobają jak się legną do mnie takie osoby młode i to właśnie potrzebują dziewczyny tego mojego ciepła mojego ciała
