Description: Facing the sea, Rangoli shares with its older brother - indian restaurant Bembì - the same concept of Indian food. Besides gathering all the virtues of his predecessor, Rangoli has a number of distinctive features: new and unique dishes, attractive decoration full of carefully chosen decorative pieces from India, a bar area where one can sip on a drink and, to top it all - a terrace with the Mediterranean view. Rangoli is the most ancient traditional decorative folk art of India and a symbol of religious and cultural beliefs. It is considered an important part of our spiritual tradition. Rangoli figures and patterns are colourful decorative designs on courtyards during Hindu festivals and is meant as a sacred welcoming area for the gods and guests. These ancient rituals have been passed on through the ages, from one generation to the next, thus keeping both the art form and the tradition alive. The purpose of rangolis is to bring good luck. We in Rangoli strive to present to you the culinary art of India which is as vibrant, traditional and colourful as a Rangoli and bring to you recipes which have transcended through generations. We welcome you to try the Rangoli experience!

Rangoli is not your corner curry house (there a few of those in Barcelona; see Nice Spice, for instance). It tries (and mostly succeeds) in adding sophistication to Indian cuisine. Take, for instance, onion bhaji: they turn it into a mixed vegetables bhaji, some wrapped in a pappadom cone. And they also venture out of the comfort zone of most... More

The restaurant is in a brilliant location across the road facing the beach. The ambience and the décor is brilliant. The food was good. The restaurant opens at 08:00 p.m.

Born and raised in India, I have eaten all kinds of regional Indian fare and Rangoli serves awesome food. Their Tandoori Salmon is delicious as well as their Lamb Vindaloo. Add some Pilau rice to that and you have a match made in heaven in your mouth. The Dal Makhani is very good as well. We ended the night with... More

I ate here after a short day at the beach. It was on the last day of our vacation and I was looking for something other than the traditional Spanish cuisine. As a Londoner, Indian food made a lot of sense :) This restaurant did not let us down. We had 2 meat eaters and 2 vegetarians and we all... More

Had the vegetarian dishes with legumes. Reasonable price. Not as good as tasty as the meat option but still quite good. A bit pricey. Great environment.

This is a delightful, traditional Indian restaurant. The menu is extensive and the food is very well prepared. The Naan bread and Murgh Tikka Massala were excellent. The staff were attentive and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant.
