We had an incredible evening and a splendid dinner; a pure delight. We started with a small selection of tapas; top 😋 The eggs with truffle oil is a must eat and for dessert the foamed Catalan cream.

We went there for a business dinner and we ate in a private room. The restaurant is very nice but the room could have had a bit of background music. Food is excellent, some dishes are reinvented traditional dishes, others kept as there were but very nicely cooked. Wine list also very good and excellent service. We will be back.

We had great Catalan food, not touristy place seems to be well known by the local. Ingredients are of high quality and cooking style traditional with precision. Definitively recommend. Great for business they have a private dinner room with beamer. Need to book.

What appeared to be yet another business dinner turned out to be an absolute splendid event in a true culinary tradition. Starting from friendly and professional service, passing by an amazing wine list, the Raco d’en Cesc is a pure delight. I’m still in awe by the spectacular dinner and evening. This is by no means a low cost affair,... More

Great food and really attentive service. I was surprised with the presentation of all of the courses and enjoyed it all. The waiter was especially great for seating outside. Highly recommend if looking for a change from normal tapas.

The front part of the restaurant serves an excellent daily menu at 28 Euros. Quality food with quality beers (home-brewed), excellent service - thoroughly enjoyed the experience

We had an incredible evening at Raco D'en Cesc. An amazing spot, serving beautifully-presented unique interpretations of classic Catalan cuisine. Fantastic service in a welcoming space, with several private dining areas. An added bonus was the extensive selection of boutique beers on offer. We'll definitely be returning next time we visit Barcelona.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
