Description: Rao Restaurant "where fine meets casual". We offer Modern Gourmet Tapas & "Platillos" perfect to share (or not!). The restaurant situated on one of the most emblematic streets of Barcelona, very close to Placa Catalunya (Canaletas!). Our chefs can be seen through the open kitchen preparing contemporary local dishes. Rao restaurant has 3 zones: a cozy spacious salon with a comfortable sofa and marble tables; the bar and a private dining area, decorated with modern Graffiti "Girl at the Window" by Salvador Dali. The fun ambience, flawless service and very reasonable prices makes for the perfect evening out in Barcelona.

Really really amazing food and service. Enjoy without hesitation.

We ordered: ceviche, octopus, scallops, Iberian tenderloin, and a Spanish omelette! Everything was very very delicious and the staff was incredibly kind. Highly recommend.

Hola

Thank you for coming to dine with us at our restaurant. And thank you for leaving a kind review here on TripAdvisor.

We are pleased that you got to try a variety of plates, which is our concept. We recommend that a couple take around 6 plates between two, but that just depend on the individual.

Hopefully we see you again at Raó.

Our kindest regards

The Raó Team

Food is fantastic, service pretty good if a little slow at times- duck, octopus and pigs cheek particularly good- roast beef with mustard ice cream was also well presented and tasted fantastic

Hola

Thank you for coming to try our restaurant and for leaving your comment here on TripAdvisor.

We´re glad you enjoyed the food and service at Raó. With having a diverse client base the timing of the meal is one of the most tricky aspects to our service, we try to deliver a good flow to the evening without our guests feeling neither rushed nor that the meal takes too long.

We are always able to adapt if a customer tells us they would like to take their time or would like a more speedy meal.

Thank you again. Hopefully we see you next time you´re back in the area.

Our kindest regards

A lovely gem not to be missed. Food is fantastic, service amazing (thanks Jason)- book to avoid disappointment. Visited with 12 year old who loved the pork tenderloin and patatas bravas. Not cheap but worth it - highly recommend.
