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 mushrooms, the truffles, the sausages, grilled prawns and roast baby goat, for example, are out of this world. A special mention goes to Ca l'Isidre creative desserts. A must-visit restaurant.

As a former restaurateur this place blew me away. The service was professional and friendly, not at the least condescending which can happen to foreigners.
The meal was outstanding, fantastic prawns and the best foie gras I ever tasted.
Can't recommend this place enough. If you are lucky enough to visit Barcelona put this on your list. I guarantee you will enjoy the experience.

This restaurant exudes old school professional classy cuisine with service to match. Wide range of Catalonia style dishes as well as simple classics. Amazing wine list suitable for all tastes and budgets. Staff are multi lingual and charming. The owner greeted us and was keeping a watchful eye on everything. Not cheap but worth it.

Unassuming shop front leads to incredible fine dining experience - white jacketed staff - hushed atmosphere - serious food

I had goat, my wife had monkfish soup, both good dishes - owner persuaded me to try chocolate dessert - really good - excellent wine selection - overall definitely worth the visit

A great restaurant - a long established favourite for locals and offering superb fish and Catalonian food. On the pricey side, but well worth the price.
