Restaurant Gaig

214 Carrer Aragó
Barcelona, 08011, Spain
TEL: 34-93-429-1017

This Catalan, Michelin-starred restaurant was founded by chef-owner Carles Gaig’s great grandmother, in 1896. Originally located in Horta at a 19th-century inn, Gaig moved to the current space at the Hotel Cram in downtown’s Eixample District, in 2004. The menu still has traditional family dishes, ranging from steamed pig's feet seasoned with morel to the more approachable cod fillet and samfaina (vegetable stew). House-made desserts include crema catalane, a crème brulée served with lemon jelly and toffee ice cream. In the dining room, draped picture windows face the city-streets, and burgundy leather chairs surround tables topped with white linens and stem-less wine glasses.

Insider Tip:

Carles Gaig purchases meat and produce at La Boqueria in Las Ramblas, located less than a mile from the restaurant. If you are in the mood to explore, this is the largest food market in Spain, with 300 stalls of products like fruit and olives.
