A delicous lunch of true Catalan specialties! Wonderful ambience with people enjoying their neighbhood resto. I was alone but certainly treated royally. The lunch menu is very brief and for 11.50 euros unbelievable! Each table was provided with a pourron of wine (the Catalan way in which one can drink without a glass .... google it, please) which many men... More

I returned this year to again enjoy the excellent ox steak they server. Grilled simply over charcoal it is one of the best steaks i have ever had. Mostly local Catalans eat here as it is far off the beaten track but well worth the visit. For lunch arrive about 1245 and you will easily get a table.

We were seated by 1pm and there was a queue by 1.30 (mainly local clientele). Lunch menu great value for 11.50 (3 courses and wine). We liked the sausage... More

Excellent Catalan cuisine, great atmosphere and warm hospitality. For dessert ask for the traditional almond cake served with the Porto wine.

We stopped by Restaurant Cal Boter for lunch while we were in the Gracia area of Barcelona. We wanted to try out some typical Catalan food, and after doing a little bit of research online we decided to try it out. When you step into the restaurant, you're faced with a very simple yet charming room, which appeared to be... More

Had a short break in September and this was the one of the best restaurants we ate at. The food was great, friendly helpful staff and lovely atmosphere... Locals queuing around the corner! I would highly recommend this lovely place to eat! About 15-20 minutes from the main centre of town. Top tip... Park Guell in the morning. Cal Boter... More

We had dinner in this place recommended by a local people and supposed to offer local cuisine. We were a bit disappointed to see that only fee dishes were tipically catalan and what we ate was ok but nothing plus. Maybe we were just unlucky with our choice!

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
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 vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
