Carles Abellán’s restaurant in the W hotel focuses on Barcelona's most characteristic cuisine, from a signature point of view and unbeatable produce. You'll find a selection of tapas that are Barcelona favourites made with local produce – 'bombas', 'ensaladilla rusa', chicken croquettes made with chicken from Prat – but also more personal creations such as white asparagus with Parmesan.
The main courses are house specialities with nods to local neighbourhood Festa Major recipes as well as the cuisine of local big hotels and restaurants – for example, a grilled meatball, rockfish 'suquet' (type of soupy dish), and rice and pasta dishes that pay tribute to the earliest restaurants in Barcelona, with a strong Italian influence.
What remains from when Bravo 24 was a restaurant dedicated to select grilled meats is a selection of oak-grilled dishes featuring gorgeous seafood and meat. You can't say no to a grilled sea bass or a good veal steak from Girona.
