They do not lie when they recommend the steak tartare - I had it with black truffles, and it was simply amazing. There are also a variety of meat and fish dishes available, and a truly astonishing selection of desserts.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
