Four of us went through 1,5 times the grilled platter, with some starters. Great tastes and variety, fun sharing event. Service very good and prompt. These guys know what they are doing!

From the outside this looks an unremarkable place. The frontage is quite small and could be missed but inside is a different matter completely! This restaurant is deceptively huge and once inside you become aware that the restaurant is over several floors. It looks great....More

One of the best seafood platters I have ever been served in Europe. Great choice of different animals from the sea and very fresh. Good Wine with a price per bottle not being to expensive.

Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the

Description
Among the three hundred diners that fill this 30-year-old restaurant every day, you may spot the King of Spain, movie stars, and politicians. Botafumeiro has to be a well-oiled machine to keep all and sundry happy and coming back for more, and it does. The decor is so trad, with wood railings and banisters, white table linens, and nautically-themed art and objets. The menu focusses on the sea, try fruits de mer for two to start, followed by anglerfish fisherman's stew with white beams or one of the barbecued fish, then a dessert of Belgian chocolate volcano with chocolate sherbet. Wine list is an ambassador for Spanish wines.
