Bar Bodega Restaurante Gelida


Situated on the corner of Carrer de la Diputació and Carrer de Comte d'Urgell in La Nova Eixample Esquerra, Gelida offers good food at a good price. Simple. 

It's  one of my favourite places to eat — especially during autumn and winter.

Simply Superb: Semproniana in Barcelona

19th October 2017

SEMPRONIANA


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.

Make tracks to Tram-Tram in Barcelona

Amuse bouches at Tram-Tram, Barcelona

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.
