The Winter Garden restaurant at the El Palace hotel lives up to any expectations you might have when you enter one of the great hotels in Barcelona, which, in this case, was founded in 1919 and has in the last few decades been a key spot in the luxury and modern side of the city.
The exclusivity is in the views as well as in the kitchen. The restaurant boasts spectacular 360-degree views of Barcelona, and you get to choose between two tasting menus (between November and April only) with an air of French haute cuisine that are perfect for trying a bit of everything along with wine pairings. You're served the best possible seasonal products made into recipes that are sophisticated, serious and classic. You might get, for example, an artichoke salad with foie and figs, or a suckling pig with sweet potato, orange and licorice mash.
In the warmer months (April to October), the Jardín Diana garden is transformed into an urban oasis. The hotel's top floor offers guests and visitors signature tapas and Mediterranean cuisine à la carte, a selection of cocktails and good music with DJ sessions. It's an idyllic space away from the noise of the city streets, with one of the best panoramic views in town.
