Felt lucky when we got a tabel, one hour before we arrived on a Saturday evening. Surpricing good service, well made food, classic with a twist. My favorit the foie gras!. Menu degustation 10 different plates from 55-65€, half bottle of vine from 15€.

i came here through a personal recommendation and having read the reviews I had high expectations. Maybe it was an "off" day but I found the service to be less than attentive - for example we had to ask for bread and water a couple of times ; there was an inflexibility regarding the service of the tasting menu (we...

This is one of the best places for enjoying excellent meat dishes in Barcelona. They don't offer a large variety but the quality of the meat is spectacular and what is also very important, they know how to cook it. You won't be wrong with any of the meat suggestions: steak tartare, sirloin, ... Moreover, they have a really very... More

Great restaurant! I've been in this restaurant a couple times, business and pleasure, and it's the best meat in Barcelona. Delicious Steak tartar, the angus beef...I said the meat is great but the marinated sardines and the scallops...just incredible!

A canelone is the Catalan version of the Italian pasta, cannelloni. In Barcelona, you'll find it stuffed with a variety of fillings, ranging from traditional pork to pork trotters, chicken or in the case of Caldeni, stewed oxtail in a sinful meat reduction. Just another example of the creativity of the frugal Catalans - canelones used to be prepared with... More

We dined at Caldeni several times during our stay in Barcelona (October through to January) and were never disappointed. The food was thoughtful, cooked well and beautifully presented. They always had an interesting take on traditional Spanish and Catalan cuisine and as someone else has mentioned here, their patatas bravas are memorable and so delicious, as was everything we tried....

I'm from Barcelona and I have been in the restaurant 4 times. It was great 6 years ago, with a skinny waiter that turned the dinner into a special experience. Then back twice for the reasonable lunch menu finding a grumpy female waiter the turned the nice linch into an unconfortable situation. People make the difference many times. Yesterday went... More

Saw good reviews on TA and decided to give it a try, definitely worth the visit! Conveniently located near the Familia Sagrada, we went in for lunch without reservation and luckily managed to get a table for 2 (restaurant is pretty small). Had Patata bravas and it was simply awesome! The best that we had in Spain and left us... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by Alex of Aborigines food tours and we were not disappointed. Four of us went for lunch and shared a variety of starters, main meals and desserts including sardines, suckling pig, scallops and Kobe steak. Flavours were exceptional and service was impeccable. On their own initiative, they split the main dishes and plated them... More
