Description: Marmalade, the new bigger sister of the now famous “Milk Bar & Bistro” would be better recognized by its nome de plume “Muebles Navarro”. This beautiful space is split into four distinct areas and nods its head to its 50 years as a furniture store, with beautiful sofas, Queen Anne style chairs, hand carved black matte billiard table, copper clad antique walls and of course the four meter tall chrome art deco bar back. This has given Marmalade a swinging 1950’s Havana/New York edge. Colour, material, and light draw you in and help you slip from the outside world. Our Head Chef has created a wonderful International menu combining flavours from his tenures in restaurants across Spain, Germany and America, using locally selected produce purchased daily from the Boqueria market . The menu changes seasonally. Dining is both casual and fun with many of the plates to be shared amongst our dining guests.Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday we have our famous American style brunch which has been embraced by both locals and tourists. Not to be missed. Marmalade has a significant cocktail list with a legendary cocktails from €5.00. Staff create fabulous original concoctions with great flavours. Marmalade has a large bar at which every kind of cocktail and delicious combination can be savoured.Laidback house and lounge music, easygoing friendly service and at times a humorous attention to detail all help to create the sense of a bar and restaurant that’s cool without ever trying too hard; instead there’s the sense of a single vision that has come together beautifully to create somewhere with real character. The element that makes Marmalade a place overflowing with personality is that all the items of décor have been specially designed and constructed for the local. Thanks to an imaginative effort to seek innovative materials, elements and colours, Marmalade has succeeded in bringing the past and future into the present. Marmalade has a warm, professional and cosmopolitan wait staff. Catalans and foreigners are waited upon attentively at the tables and even when the house is full there is always someone in attendance, since service is the philosophy underlying this bar and restaurant. The clientele pick up momentum as night descends. The staff also have a great knowledge of Barcelona and its hidden treasures, so be sure to ask what is on offer. It is truly a great meeting place to start an unforgettable vacation in a city that is second to none.Considered one of the most desirable event locations in Barcelona. Marmalade is a magnificent space that’s both grand (300 sqm & 4.5 meter tall ceilings) yet intimate with four separate seating areas. It also has outside dining with 32 seats and 8 tables. Providing an upscale backdrop for virtually all types of events. Conveniently located 5 minutes from Las Ramblas and with a privileged location above the top of La Rambla del Raval; this space can accommodate up to 225 guests for cocktails and small plates and 100 guests for seated dinner. Marmalades star has truly risen and it has become one of the neighborhoods’ hottest spots. It is a reference point for any visit to Barcelona. WOW!!!

Visited Marmalade only for pre-dinner drinks, but it was a groovy establishment that had a nice vibe at 7pm on a Friday night (although it was August so could be very different at 'normal' times of the year). Good Estrella beer on tap (€3.50 a pint) with extensive cocktail selection, which we didn't try, but couple at the bar were... More

Being from the UK, it can be challenging to find a good fry up in Barcelona. Marmalade provides one of the best value brunches in the city. Milky's Fry comes with everything you'd associate with a good hangover beating fry up, bacon, eggs, toast, mushrooms and tomato. If you're on holiday, why not do what we did and add a... More

I come here regularly on the weekends since I don't live too far away. Bascially its cheap, very good, centrally located and, most important, its open all day (no frustrating siesta times). The brunch is available until 4pm so no need to hustle out of bed with a hangover. It doesn't matter if you sit outside or inside, its both... More

This place was nice. The food was really great! As an aussie I like my brunch and this place serves it until 4pm, which means all day bircher museli and pancakes = the best!! However its quite dark in the restaurant and the outdoor seating is a little grundgy, other than that no complaints!

Stayed in Barcelona for a week last summer and I must have had dinner there three, maybe four, nights. It was down an alley, in this little square and the atmosphere was stunning. My boyfriend and I sat outside under a small marquee romantically lit. It was such an authentic and romantic experience. We sipped on sangrias and white wine... More
