During our Barcelona sightseeing, excellently organized by Viajes Rovira, we stopped at the end at la Cupula restaurant, near to La Sagrada Familia. I did not expect a lot, but I was very good surprised either by the quality of food, very good service and modest pricing - best quality for your money. To add - very interesting interior, real...

We had hoped for the special offer menu which was advertised in our room,but sadly it was not available in the evening so had to choose from the main ala carte menu which was a little more expensive than we would normally be happy to pay. But we decided to treat ourselves. I asked If they had Rioja on the... More

We were introduced to La Cúpula by a Catalan friend a few years ago. We go there everytime we are in Barcelona because I enjoy the excellent food and service. This time we went at night instead of lunch. At lunch they have an all inclusive menu which is very decently priced (18E) for the quality you get. The night... More

I came to this restaurant with my family after having visited the Sagrada Familia (I recommend you to buy the tickets in advance through Internet to avoid queues). I am happy with the choice we made. For a reasonable price, we had a full menu (drinks excluded). There were not too many options in the menu, but everything was quite... More

This was a logical choice as we were staying at the hotel in the same building. Impressive decor with real Hispanos Suiza. Quite clearly restaurant had been planned and fitted out for high end customers. We understood that due to the crisis, target clientele had to be modified. In any case, we had three very good dinners with inexpensive but... More

La Cúpula is a landmark restaurant, located just behind the Sagrada Familia cathedral where diners can enjoy a pleasant evening surrounded by seven vintage Spanish and Swiss cars that are part of the restaurant’s private collection. La Cúpula offers meticulously prepared and beautifully presented Mediterranean haute cuisine based on an outstanding selection of the best seasonal ingredients. Starters include grilled Asparagus with foie gras and crispy cheeks and sardine “coca”, caramelised onion and braised “butifarra” sausage, other choices include pigs trotters stuffed with porcini mushrooms and king prawns with Provencal couscous, monkfish in squid ink with Bomba rice or fillet steak with foie gras and porcini cream. The desserts are all home made and include original creations such as honey and “matò” cheese with quince paste and walnut ice cream. La Cúpula offers a well stocked humidor and an extensive list of Spanish wines with some unusual bottles. The décor is warm and cosy and in the evenings diners can enjoy a lively meal accompanied by live piano music. The dining room can accommodate up to 100 people and the restaurant also has a number of private rooms each seating up to 15 people.
