Situated in what used to be a publisher’s offices, Semproniana offers a relaxed ambience in which to enjoy excellent food.
One of my all-round favourites — equally good for lunch and dinner.
It’s also one of the family’s favourite spots and often our first choice restaurant when we feel a need for a family celebration.
I can never help smiling whenever I dine here. It’s that kind of place — quirky, arty, fun, and free of pretension.

La Singular is one of my favourite restaurants for both lunch and dinner.
Here are several sound reasons why:
Tram-Tram, a family owned, family run restaurant, is an excellent spot for small get-togethers, or, perhaps, a romantic rendezvous, and a good introduction to contemporary Catalan cuisine. It's a small, perfectly formed and tastefully decorated restaurant, with private dining-rooms and a pleasant leafy patio.
Isidre Soler, the chef, (who spent time training with Ferran Adrià at El Bulli before it became internationally known) takes evident, painstaking pride in the preparation and presentation of his exquisite dishes.
Our restaurants and bars offer a wide and wild variety of cuisines and creative dishes.
However, grazing on tapas and fine dining is both wearing on the wallet and bruising on the palate. There are times while out and about when you want something more substantial than a snack, something a little more ordinary — more home style than stylish. The kind of food our city’s bar-restaurants excel at.
Palermo is another favourite lunch spot. They offer a very good menú diari [menú del día] which regularly features traditional dishes such as codillo al horno (knuckle), estofado de vedella (veal stew) or estofado de ternera (beef stew) and, of course, paella on Thursdays. The menú includes a bottle of vino tinto (red table wine) or beer.
Tataky de lomo de buey con enoquis (Tataki of beef tenderloin with enoki mushrooms), as served as part of the menú degustación at Goliard.
