Brunch is becoming more and more popular and can be had all over Barcelona, but some are better than others. The Barceló Raval brunch is one of our favourites, offering a buffet packed with delicious sweet and savoury dishes for around 25 euros.
The Barceló Raval restaurant, a futuristic design world
The Barceló Raval is a 4 star hotel located a few metres from the Ramblas, and it is one of the most original hotels in the city. You can read more about why in our article Barceló Raval: an extraordinary hotel that dares to mix baroque and avant garde styles.
You are free to decide where you want to start: savoury? sweet? the two together? It’s up to you! But be warned, it’s all very tempting and you may want to try everything all at once.
Barceló Raval brunch: savoury corner
Starting with the savoury, you will find:
- Hot or cold soups and cream of vegetable dishes.
- Salads: tomatoes/mozzarella/rocket, glasses of chicken salad, and even assorted ingredients so you can make your own.
- Glasses of hummus with pitta bread, or guacamole with crispy bread
- Various cheeses garnished with nuts
- Various little sandwiches: egg, vegetable…
- Mini burritos
- Smoked fish: salmon, anchovies, cod…
- Warm homemade pizza
- A selection of breads
- Eggs Benedict with ham or spinach
Don’t hold back on the savoury dishes, as the sweets are a little less varied.
Barceló Raval brunch: sweet corner
- Miniature desserts
- Sliced or whole skewered fruit
- Jams and conserves
- Pastries and tarts (when I visited there was a chocolate tart and a sort of strawberry pastry)
- Croissants, donuts and muffins: the only downside of this brunch in my opinion, as they were neither homemade not particularly appetising, although with everything else that’s available it doesn’t really matter!
Barceló Raval brunch: drinks
The choice of drinks is a little less extravagant, but it is adequate: pressed orange juice, pineapple juice, still or sparkling water, teas and coffees are all available.
As well as these freely available drinks, brunch also includes a cocktail, which you can sip on the hotel’s roof terrace while admiring the panoramic view. The options are: mimosa (cava, orange juice and raspberry syrup), mojitín (a take on a mojito, but made with Martini) or a flute of cava.
You will have to pay the bill before enjoying your cocktail if you decide to take it up to the terrace, and your server will give you a ticket to exchange for your drink. You can then return to your table whenever you like.
Some useful information

- It takes place every Sunday from midday to 4pm.
- A DJ is on site to liven up the atmosphere from 1 or 2pm: if you prefer a quieter atmosphere be sure to arrive before 12pm.
