Simple, well-prepared food, and some great local wine. Just around the corner from La Sagrada Familia, so a great to eat (before or after). Must book.

Reserved lunch following a visit to Sagrada Familia. Tasting menu was excellent. We were offered opion in case of allergies or preferences.Delights included leek cream with cockle,marinated sardjnes, foie Gras, oxtail canneloni and many variants of their Angus beef specialties. Two delicious desserts rounded out the experience. A small restaurant, spare, elegant, muted tones and quietly attentive service.

I didn't realize I had booked a "fancy" restaurant until we walked in from sightseeing in shorts ready for lunch. Caledi has about 8 tables, about half full of locals only. That was a good sign. We had the tasting menu and cava for 80E total for two. The food was delicious, elegantly prepared, and came out quickly, giving us... More

This is a husband/wife place--small and intimate. We had the amazing tasting menu that seemed to go on forever--each portion exquisite both in looks and taste. Probably not a good choice if you don't like meat but that is not all there is. We couldn't praise the food enough. At 55 euros for at least ten different dishes it was... More

The restaurant is located very close to Sagrada Familia and we enjoyed a fabulous lunch at the Caldeni following our tour of the Sagrada Familia. Lunch service begins promptly at 1:30. This is a family operation with husband/chef in the kitchen and wife, along with an assistant, in the dining room. The space is modern but warm with interesting artwork.... More

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
