We were only sharing some tapas and drinks in the area, and Palo Cortado was one of the local recommendations. High quality and average prices. Will come back to evaluate it better :-)

It is very difficult to find in Barcelona a nice place with good service and (most importantly) great food. Palo Cortao is an excemption. Booking a table is not the most easy thing as they have an answering machine and dont always call you back,...More

Part of our starters we serve in this way, by weight on waxed paper. Belly of pork with cumin and paprika (Chicharrones from Cadiz), cut Spanish ham, cecina (cured beef), white prawns from Huelva ... We focus our cooking on the product. Grilled dishes such as octopus legs, squid on pancetta and truffled Parmentier, high angus tenderloin, loin of Iberian pork ... We are very aware of our mother's cooking, Andalusian and Catalan. From Andalusia comes our fried fish, oxtail, gazpacho from Cordova (salmorejo) ... From Catalonia rice dishes from the Ebre delta, "sea and mountain" cuisine... We make some nods to other cuisines that we are passionate about, like the Japanese with our tuna Tataky with garlic and almonds cream (ajoblanco), or Peruvian ceviche... We learn every day from our customers and fellow chefs. We like to think our best meal is yet to come.
