Dining at this restaurant is like travelling back in time to the ambience and warmth of the 'masies' (Catalan country houses) of yesteryear. At La Brasa they know what they're doing: Catalan cooking and the grill ('brasa'), as their name suggests. You'll eat - surrounded by wine barrels and farming tools - the finest examples of Catalan cuisine: 'calçots' (a type of Catalan onion), 'canelons' (Catalan version of cannelloni), snails (cooked dry with garlic mayonnaise, in the oven or in a casserole, in true Catalan grandmother style), beans, roasted meats, and more. They also use ingredients that used to be very typical here, such as herring and frog's legs. And as much meat as you want. Who says that dishes cooked over fire are simple? Go there during the wild mushroom or artichoke season, and try them hot off the grill. You'll regret not having done it before.
