We had such good memories of Pilar restaurant in Barcelona from a previous visit I booked it form birthday dinner for my partner and I recently. Pilar is a very authentic local restaurant and the locals who dine here are greeted with warm hugs and kisses by the staff. We felt quite at home. There is an extensive evening set... More

I went here for lunch on a Tuesday. It was not very busy but they offer a very good value menu del dia for just €13. I chose the Espinacas a la Catalana (Catalan spinach) for starter and followed with the Fricando (beef fricassee) for main course. Both dishes were delicious. For dessert I chose vanilla ice cream served with... More

We were very tired after our long flight from the USA, so only wanted a light meal. Our hotel recommended this to us. Exactly what we wanted and at a reasonable price. The soup with onion and rice was delicious as were the grilled vegetables and salmon salad. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

This is a cozy restaurant with excellent food and service (and prices). I had the mushrooms with rice for my appetizer--exceptional--and the hake for the entrée, which was superb. The dessert cheesecake is great. The sangria is delicious and strong. The waiters are very helpful even to foreigners and when I asked for recommendations, our waiter did not steer me... More

They have a daily menu of ?13, composed of a starter, a main course, bread, dessert and even your WINE!!! The best thing that you can actually choose your starter, main course and dessert out of several local, homemade options. Everything tasted fresh and simply great.

We had the set menu for 21euros, which included 3 courses and a drink each. There were 12 choices for each course, including a wide range of contemporary European dishes with a splash of Spanish flavour. We had 9 different dishes, each of which were excellent. The tuna carpaccio, tenderloin pork with rocquefort sauce were highlights, and for dessert the... More

I was tired, I was hungry, I'd been travelling all day to find my hotel had no restaurant. I was sent here in a really bad mood, but left full, happy and wanting to return. I had a mushroom and rice starter, that was so full of flavour, a steak with kidney pieces in a delicious sauce with chips (fries... More

This restaurant, in Eixample, is a hidden gem. Our hotel recommended it and was very near on a side street. The price fix menu was generous with wine, bread, main and dessert. All was cooked with fresh ingredients, from scratch and excellent!! Server was personable and attentive. After a long day of travel it was a welcome respite!

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
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 exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
