Description: A restaurant specializing in meat. The glass cabinet for meat ageing is a special feature of our Braseria, specialised in meats, as it allows us to see the product in a direct and transparent way. The star of the show is the charcoal grill, although there is also a wood-fired oven and a griddle. All of the meat is cooked on the spot, in front of the customers.

Had lunch with friends, ordered a big chuleton (T-bone) and steak tartar. The chuleton was perfect, not too much seasoning, with some nice fatty bits that tasted wonderful. The steak tartar was ordered spicy, too my taste a little too spicy though. I will likely come back for the steak!

While El Nacional is a wonderful old building with an extensive history (most recently it was a parking garage) the food is what people go there for.

We ate at La Braseria, the meat restaurant (there are also fish, tapas, and other restaurants inside).

The meat was well aged, and perfectly cooked. Appetizers were traditional with grated tomatoes on toast being a great choice.

Several of us shared the Chuletón de vaca vieja (Mature beef rib-eye steak), they need to know how many will share as they go and see what sizes they have available and will prepare to order.
We were a group of 8, and they had no trouble accommodating us.

A good place to eat and drink either for lunch or dinner or even for pre dinner tapas and wine ( or beer for that mattee). This place, apparently, used to be warehouse and then a Car park; so the arquitect has really done some good work there. The p,ace is a potpoury of catalan cuisine all assembled in one place under some sky lights so one can enjoy the sun perping through. The place has multiple restaurants and bars. Woden furniture is oozing with awe and warmth yet with a contemporary touch. We had lunch at the "Braseria" . The entrate was aacetunas braseria and eggs with potatos , just delicious. The steak was cooked on , I believe, coal fire. The quality was not Angus but not bed for the price. The lady ordered a steak tartar and she exclaimed with the taste. She commented that she doesn't realy enjoy raw meat but this was definitely palatable. We had Red wine , Protos Roble, which went very well with both our main dishes. A rad on the pricey side but over all worth it. I also recommend the the Bar next to thus restaurant with ceiling high shelves stocked up with all kinds of spirits , while waiting for your table. On the who,e, the place is highly recommended, especially in a company of two. Cheers

Great atmosphere as we dined her for my daughters 30th birthday. It was a Tuesday night and very busy so booking may be advisable.
There are 4 dining areas inside to choose from we chose the Grill area. The menu had a good choice and the wine list was extensive. Some very good Spanish wines to choose from.
We had a bit of a wait for someone to take our order but it was not a problem as we weren't in a hurry.
The food was excellent as were desserts.
