Come to what is arguably the best restaurant in the district for seafood. Located next to the stone quarry and GaudÌ's La Pedrera, it has a nondescript façade, but beautiful, marine-themed interiors and an intimate ambiance. The freshest seafood is brought in here and transformed into delectable local cuisine. Choose between the Mediterranean risotto with king prawns, foie gras with caramel-coated pineapple and roast shoulder of lamb in cava. Loads of veggies make up the sides, to curtail the powerful flavors. The huge sponge cake with a thick chocolate interior is a must-have at dessert. An excellent wine list offers enough labels for a good pairing; if you need help, ask the discreet staff for suggestions.
