“Our Best Meal in Barcelona!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

My fiancé and I heard of the restaurant from a mutual friend of the owners, who are both involved with Slow Food. We showed up late, after they had already closed for lunch, but they happily took us anyway and we enjoyed an incredible meal, knowledgable friendly service that made you feel as if you were in your own kitchen. We sampled through the menu and could have kept eating as everything brought to us was gone within moments, each dish so well thought out and unique, combining traditional Spanish cuisine with international twists. The beers were paired beautifully to each plate, and we were two over the top satisfied meat eaters when we walked out the door. I brought my mother back a few weeks later for dinner... and again, we were blown away. We ordered three dishes and each one was very different, and we kept marveling at the fact that with each unique combination on the plate, you could taste every one of the ingredients individually, and at the same time, the marriage on your palate was perfectly combined.
I will absolutely recommend this restaurant to everyone I know that visits Barcelona, carnivores, vegans and vegetarians alike!! Another high point, not yet full of annoying tourists :)

“Wow what a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile


After getting lost in the Barri Quarter we stumbled across Rasoterra. After 2 weeks of a diet of meat and potatoes travelling in Spain we were hankering for some veggies. After having a lunch of stir fried vegetables with barley, beans with tortilla chips and guacamole we decided to come back for dinner.  Again a great selection of innovative dishes, beautifully presented and accompanied by lovely vino tinto and cava. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We would recommend to anyone visiting Barcelona - meat eaters or not!

“Local and global”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

We have had dinner just today, and we really have enjoyed it. Food is excellent and at a very reasonable price. There is a nice selection of local and ingernarional food, as well as wines.
In adition, you will find the (maybe) best coffee in town.

“Finally!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Feeding a vegetarian in Spain is an amazing challenge. As an event organizer (and food lover) I have often sent recipes to chef´s telling me the only thing they can offer for my vegetarian guests would be a mushroom risotto, a vegetable lasagne... or even worse... grilled vegetables. These are all lovely things but not 365 days a year. Rasoterra is filling a nice gap on Barcelona´s food scene. Their lovely vegetarian/vegan menu is a gourmet experience and things are made with love. There are hardly any places like this in the city and I can´t wait to share this new gem with those craving to be understood and those who, like me, being omnivore, simply like to try new things. Watch this space!
