Pakta

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 4/4
  • Critics choice

Albert Adrià's second eatery in Barcelona is a 'Nikkei' restaurant – a cuisine that was born in Peru out of the mix of indigenous cooking and Japanese immigration. Adrià has run Nikkei cooking through his own filter to come up with surprising dishes, such as a fusion of maki and Peruvian 'causa' of smoked mackerel, or salmon nigiri with yellow capsicum sauce. In Czech, 'pakta' means 'together'.

Bodega 1900

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 1/4
  • Critics choice

Albert Adrià provides the brains behind this new spot, and his restaurant Tickets is just across the road. You know that with an Adrià at the helm in the kitchen, it's an innovative cuisine they're serving up, even though they try to be true to the flavours that dominated in local food from the early 20th century: the smoked, the salted, the grilled and the pickled. It's a pleasing trip to the past without leaving behind the modern mindset for the 21st-century palate.

Cafè Mandacarú

It's definitely worth spending some time in this place which is a breed somewhere between a vegetarian restaurant and a jazz club, if there is such a thing. On the restaurant side, there's a brief and inviting menu featuring wild mushroom fideuás (fine noodles), and croquettes stuffed with mushrooms or broad beans with mint; while the jazz part comes in the form of frequent live shows from top acts, with the occasional classical concert taking the stage. They also host book readings, poetry recitals and other cultural happenings; there's something going on every week. Have a look at their wine list while you're there as well – it boasts more than 70 bottles.

Family-run Galician grill for discerning fans of barbecued meat. The perfect place for a good entrecôte on the bone. Antonio and his son Santi moved to Poble Sec years ago, since when they have built up a specialist fan base of regulars who come for the Galician beef, the lamb and suckling pig from Burgos, fresh fish according to season, as well as an extensive menu of other dishes, including game. If you want a good stew, their cocido gallego is excellent. If you order in advance, they’ll rustle up a seafood selection for you. Some of their desserts are particularly worthy of attention, such as the cañetes de Santiago, pastís de pinyons, oreja de fraile and Santiaguiña.
