Taverna El Glop

Catalan in Gràcia & Park Güell

This raucous restaurant is decked out in country Catalan fashion with gingham tablecloths and no-nonsense, slap-up meals. The secret is hearty portions of simple dishes, such as cordero a la brasa (grilled lamb), paella de pescado y marisco (fish and seafood paella) and starters like berenjenas rellenas (stuffed aubergines) or calçots (spring onions) in winter.

To finish try the tocinillo, a caramel dessert.
