Description: 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.

This was the very first restaurant I ever visited in Barcelona (or anywhere in Spain for that matter). Also one of the best.

Absolutely wonderful food, wine and service - our waiter spoke excellent English and gave us lots of really helpful advice about the city.

The standout dishes were the Paella and the Sangria. The latter was served just like wine, we got a small initial sip to taste it and they would then sweeten it based on our preference!

The maitre d' is very professional and extremely friendly; service is very good, wine card is also interesting.
Food was ok, we had better for lower price in Spain, but for Barcelona it may be normal to pay higher prices in a restaurant.
Very convenient to have such restaurant in our hotel.

We stayed at the Ayre Hotel Rosellon a block away from La Sagrada Familia and asked the front desk for a restaurant recommendation for lunch. We had just arrived in Barcelona and it was almost 2pm. We were directed to La Cupula, two blocks away, and it was fab. We loved, loved the Goat cheese and Bacon salad, the Hake fish was superb, the Duck Risotto was to die for and the sangria was so very tasty. We had only three days to play in Barcelona and with so many great restaurants to choose from you'd think we'd not eat at the same one twice, but we did. We returned to La Cupula on our last night in Barcelona because it was that good. We were not disappointed!!! A must try meal that you will remember.
