Food lovers will adore this place. Plenty of specials aside of the regular menu, the service is smooth and very organized. The food is magic. Every bite so simply perfect and tasty. The ingredients are hand picked and only the finest which makes it a must try eateria.

At Can Vallès you will taste excellent raw material always cooked in a clever way. It is one of those few places where you can still recognize what you eat and where the receipt is chosen to enhance the raw material, not to overshadow it.

This small restaurant (9 tables) served one of the best meals I've had since I visited Paris two years ago. The servers knew the menu inside and out and helped us to order the perfect amount of food. We had mussels, the canneloni (a must!), risotto, and grilled vegetables (so good). For the main course, three of us shared the meat on a hot stone (carne a piedra caliente). I'm still thinking about this dish, days later. It was probably the best red meat I've ever eaten. Just incredible. For dessert we had buñuelos filled with chocolate and cinnamon ice cream. Delicious. It ended up being about 45euros per person, so not too bad. If you're looking for a special meal in Barcelona, make it here! But make a reservation!

Had dinner last night. Arrived at 9 am, restaurant was empty but was full by 9:30. Everything was fantastic. Had a carpaccio, followed by rodaballo (turbot) which was incredible. My friend had monkfish ( rape a la plancha) and really enjoyed it. We asked for some pan tumaca and spanish ham while waiting for the appetizer, both were excellent. Great wine selection, especially for Ribera del Duero.
Definitely a place,to visit in Barcelona!

"You cannot say you have dined in Barcelona if you have not dined at Can Valles" said a foodie friend and so it is.
We ordered a Rioja wine (Muja 2006) which was poured into a decanter for us. We started with mussels which were simply good. Then we went on to cannelloni filled with pork meat. The cannelloni was pure heaven - a must. Then a portion of a suckling pig confit - again simple but good as was the salad accompanying it. And to continue with the meat - a portion of oxtail cooked to perfection. And then we went back to another portion of the cannelloni - did I say heaven ?
For desert we had a plate of 5 small tastings, and 1st prize goes to "tocinillo de cielo" which translates to "bacon from heaven" (but does not have any bacon in it) - also a must so we ordered a full portion of it.
Surprisingly the menu has an English translation though only one waiter could somewhat speak the language.
Luckily reservation was made 3 weeks before, as the restaurant was full the night we were there. BTW dinner starts at 9 PM.
