We tried Embat for an early lunch and were not disappointed. The restaurant is very simply and casually decorated and the food was fresh and simple, beautifully presented and delicious. We were bowled over by the quality of everything we ordered. The kitchen knows how...More

Grabbed a quick bite on the way to La Sagrada Familia. Typical breakfast specials - cafe con leche, bikini sandwiches (my favorite), muffins, etc. for a few euros.

It's a great hidden gem! It's located away from the main strip and seems to be a local delight. It has a very boutique and cosy ambience.

Perfection ! If we lived in Barcelona we'd be back on an extremely regular basis to enjoy the amazing freshly prepared food. We live in England - a long commute so not viable. Anyone in Barcelona - it's a "must visit" place 😊

The food at Embat was absolutely outstanding for our dinner on a Saturday night. Still thinking about the duck cannelloni! The biggest surprise was the dessert, sooo good - we ordered two of the fruit desserts, one was called Thailand and the other escapes me....More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

For quite a while Santi Rebes , Chef and owner of "Embat ", was envisioning a change in the interior design of his restaurant. Santi was looking for a fresh style whose simplicity gives a Nordic bliss to his place and yet keeps it warm and cozy. Mid-2014, Santi decides to carry out his vision and engages Interior Designer Jordi Ginabreda . Jordi is a young designer born in Vall d'En Bas, Girona. He is currently based in Barcelona and he has an outstanding professional career. Jordi has certainly done an excellent job! Chef Santi Rebes Santi studied Culinary Arts at Escuela de Hosteleria San Ignasi of Barcelona. Over the years Santi works at two prestigious Dutch restaurants until he is invited to join Chef Cuisine in the well-known Barcelonian restaurant "Cata 1.81". Here Santi develops his flair combining the traditional Catalan cuisine with the acquired international savors. Later, Santi graduates as Master in Pastry at "Escuela de Postres Espaisucre" where he becomes Chef Cuisine of the school's restaurant. In 2007 Santi becomes Chef-owner of his restaurant "Embat".
