Description: Ca l'Isidre is the best formal Catalan restaurant in Barcelona. Royalty, celebrities and gourmets have been returning to this small family-owned, art-filled treasure since it opened just off El Paral.lel avenue and inside the Raval quarter in the 70s. Because it relies on what catches chef-owner Isidre Girones at the nearby La Boqueria market that morning, the menu changes day by day. Go for the classics every time: the sausages, grilled prawns, fried codfish, and lamb brains in black butter, for example, are out of this world. A special mention goes to Ca l'Isidre creative desserts. A must-visit restaurant.

I had booked to have dinner at this restaurant in Barcelona having seen a brief review in one of the weekend papers and before travelling. It more than met expectations with the beautiful food but more because of the extremely friendly and helpful service which made the evening. My wife and I will definitely eat there again on our ne visit.

I've been living in Barcelona for 25 years, this place is my number-1 spot. The cuisine is sprectacular, the service great and the ambiance cosy & warm, almost like going to a friend's house for dinner.

Wonderful meal and excellent service.Good wine list.Las time we have been there we met Mr Isidre himself and he invited us next morning to go with him to Barcelonas' Fresh Market showing us the source of his ingredients.

This was our fourth visit here and we've never been disappointed; indeed, each time the food seems better than the last. Diners are warly greeted, the service is excellent, and the ambience seems perfect. But the star is the food: simply excellent. This is our favorite restaurant in Barcelona; indeed, it's as good as iit gets short of some Michelin 3 star places.
