Located at the corner of Mallorca street and the tree-lined Enric Granados avenue, La Palmera restaurant has looked onto this corner of Barcelona for more than 20 years. Having originally operated as a deli, thanks to the couple who own it, and to their customers, the site has been transformed bit by bi, into a restaurant that is renowned for the quality of its food. And what is the concept? A fresh take on Mediterranean dishes using fresh seasonal products.
La Palmera: the place
It is impossible not to succumb to the charm of the first room. The place has the allure of a pretty, old bodega rather than a conventional restaurant, with exposed brick walls, a metal staircase stacked with bottles, and lots of charming bistro furniture.
We advise you to eat in this room if you can. The atmosphere is really pleasant and the decor is very considered. Be sure to book ahead.
The second, more classical room, with light apricot walls, has space for more tables.
- On fine days tables are arranged so you can eat on the terrace in the street in front of the restaurant.

- Top tip: The tasting menu, which costs less than 25 euros is also offered on Saturdays from 1pm and evenings from 8.30pm Monday to Wednesday (except the day before holidays). Few restaurants like La Palmera offer a set menu at weekends or evenings, so it’s a good deal for those times.
