WHAT A TREAT! Browsing through a discarded copy of "Time Out Barcelona", I happened upon a review of this place and it sounded interesting. We booked a reservation for lunch and after finding this little tucked away restaurant (don't expect a big sign with the name - you need to LOOK for it!), we were delighted to find the place...

Wonderful cuisine, fabulous service, great last night in Barca dinner!!! Our waitress Elenor was professional, helpful and informative. Don't miss the Caldeni fine dining experience. The fish of the day was delicious and so was the Angus beef. The deserts - crime brûlée, tiramisu and the chocie dessert were to die for. Always ring the restaurant to check availability even...

If you are looking for high quality service and food, then Caldeni is the place to go. More of the high end variety when it comes to dining, but very much worth it. With a place like Caldeni you don't mind parting with that extra bit of money. The Angus steak is particularly excellent, and I'd recommend that above everything.... More

Cool, simple while yummy. Have you ever thought to find a charming restaurant with the best meat next to Sagrada Familia? The Caldeni's team is professional, always attending you at the right time and the right moment while you are enjoying the moment with your 5 senses. Just try it! By the way, do you prefer an informal touch without... More

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!
