We spent our last night in Barcelona at Rao, as a family of 2 adults and a fussy eating 10 year old.
We had tapas and the food was... read more just delicious. Highly recommend the boneless chicken wings (who knew you could get so much meat I'm a wing!) And croquettes. In fact, it was all lovely. However, the absolute winner of the night was the cheesecake with mango and figs. It was to die for and the best ever that we've tasted. Just heavenly.
The local lager was lovely and my husband said the sangria was the best he had tasted in Barcelona.
The service was impeccable and warm. The atmosphere was awesome.
Highly recommend going and I'd of ate there every night of I could of!
I visited only once. Unavoidably touristy for the region, but good anyways.
The portion is not per person. One needs 2-3 dishes to feel satisfied, but this is explained by... read more the waiter, and it is as expected for a tapas restaurant.
Very attentive staff, who made our evening a delight. Relaxed atmosphere with high quality food and great cocktail menu. The boneless chicken wings are to die for.
Friendly servers, great vibe inside, beautiful food that is so good! We had 5 tapas to share and dessert. And two drinks that were quality pours. Everything about this place... read more impressed us. Make a reservation, because we saw several parties turned away because they hadn’t.
The service is beyond amazing here, some of the best service i've ever had in a restaurant and I live in NYC! And after two weeks in spain it was... read more a relief to have a server who spoke perfect english 🙂 I spilled my cava and literally like magic they had cleaned it up, given me a new glass and we had new food that wasn't covered in cava, that all happened in like 5 second, amazing! The food is also outstanding. Everything we ordered was delicious. I wish we'd had room in our stomachs to order more! I would definitely return if we are back in Barcelona!
Me and my partner were visiting Barcelona from the UK and booked a table for 2 at Rao for his 30th Birthday. From start to finish the service was outstanding.... read more I mentioned when booking the reservation that it was his birthday and we were kindly welcomed with a free glass of cava each! All the members of staff were so polite, friendly and spoke many languages. We ordered a few plates from the tapas menu and the food was fantastic!! I didn’t think it was too expensive for the quality of the food. I would definitely recommend the octopus leg! We had the sangria which was lovely. I also asked if they could bring a surprise dessert over to him and they placed a candle in and all sang happy birthday to him. It was amazing!! They made his night so special and they totally went the extra mile. I can’t thank them enough.
From the moment we walked in the service, food, drinks were the best we have had since leaving Australia. Presentation of food was superb, taste sensations were out of this... read more world. Overall a culinary delight in all areas. Thoroughly recommend.
What a cozy place. Wonderful experience. Great food great people. It was a really nice surprise we had a great time.
Served the bigger tapas dishes one at a time with a description so we all shared, all were fantastic. Felt like being in a Michelin restaurant but very relaxed and... read more fair value. Ambience was great. Family friendly. You need to book as was full.

We ordered 6 dishes, all were outstanding & desserts were excellent to! So nice to visit a restaurant where the food & service are both of such a high standard.
Keep up the good work, would definitely come back if I came to Barcelona again.
We hadn't been to Barcelona for about 6 years so knew nothing about the area we were staying in - Praça de Catalunya. All around was Burger King, McDonalds, KFC,... read more Taco Bell etc.
Having decided we need3d to eat we went into 5 Guys. My wife was not too happy with this decision but we really saw no alternative. Just as we were about to order, my wife decided she really did not want a burger. We left and Ingot on Trip Advisor. The 1st restaurant on the list of places near us was RAO. What a find!
We walked the 2 minutes down La Rambla a bit and took a right and another right, and there it was.
We went in. There was a biggish group at one of the tables and we sat near them, directed by Jason.
Jason explained everything on the menu for us because this isn't your everyday Spanish cuisine. This is where fine dining meets casual, as they say themselves...
We ordered 7 plates. All were delicious.
The jamon croquetas were the best I have ever had - and I have had very many! Such an amzing flavour; fresh and hot and simply a treat on tje tongue.
The roast beef with mustard ice cream (no, I'm not joking!) was one of the most wonderful dishes I have ever had - if you go there ORDER IT!
The oxtail was also fabulous - cooked for nearly a whole day - you can imagine the flavour!
The beetroot an avocado tempura was a new experience for me - fried avo??? It works, very well!
The pluma iberica was amazing as was the lovely bread with salmorejo amd the chicken wings will make your mouth water.
Superb food, superb service, superb 1st night in Barcelona! Thanks to Jadon and the team for saving us from a burger and fries!
I'll be dreaming about most of those dishes till we make it back to repeat the experience!
