While the speciality is shellfish and fish cooked in a hundred ways, there are also typical Galician dishes such as lacón con grelos (gammon with turnip tops) and tarta de Santiago (the Iberian answer to Bakewell tart).
Loud, chaotic and fun, it still manages to maintain an elegant edge, and is much loved by large groups of well-heeled Catalans and the odd celeb (Barça players and the like).
Many of the waiters appear to have been around as long as the restaurant itself, and remain completely unfazed by the multitude of orders going into, and plates coming out of, the kitchen.
C/Gran de Gràcia is the continuation of Passeig de Gràcia, all the way up beyond Avda Diagonal.
There is no menú del dia, and it’s not a cheap night out, with mains hovering around 25 euros, but you will eat reasonably well.
