Dalí used to regularly waltz into this high-society eatery after it opened in 1967. The vaguely art-deco setting (note the oval mirrors), orange-rose tablecloths, leather chairs and fine cutlery may cater to more conservative souls, but the painter was here for the kitchen exploits.

Catalan dishes dominate, with delicacies such as scorched rice with eel and king prawns, or roasted suckling pig. Seafood fans should start off with Galician oysters or sea urchins with celery sorbet and apple.
