Super high quality of food, incredibly friendly holders and waiters. One of Barcelona's hot spots! I can only recommend it. BRAVO!
We ate at Rao on our first night in Barcelona - what a great way to sample the flavors of Barcelona! My favorite was the Ceviche Ráo style - marinated... read more white sea bass, cilantro, onion, coconut, and celery and lemon sorbet. I also loved the avocado and beet tempura - the Romesco dip was a great finish.
I'm glad we booked ahead at this trendy tapas restaurant near the Las Ramblas strip. The menu is innovative and everything we ordered was outstanding. We had three starters and... read more two entrees which was plenty for two people. A fun evening!
Another facntastic night here. We came last summer and enjoyed our dinner so much. It was great to see the same guys working here and we had a great catch-up... read more conversation. The tapas food was even better that I remembered. We had some of the same plates as last time like the ducuk and tortilla and we had the new oxtail stew, and the new fish (I can´t remember the name) but it was exceptional. All in all a truely wonderful evening.
A fantastic restaurant!!! Very welcoming, friendly and knowledgable waiters who are passionate about the menu. Exceptional food and ambience - I would thoroughly recommend a meal here
Upon our arrival Jason introduced himself to my wife and I as I'd mentioned on SM we were attending on the Tuesday for our 20th wedding anniversary.
We were... read more shown to our table and this was swiftly followed up with a glass of bubbly
The menu was well presented tapas plates with meat, fish or veggie options with a modern twist to the traditional simple tapas.
I knew we/I got a little exuberant and ordered 6 dishes (2 of fish, meat & vegetable)
Our personal favourite was the Iberian tenderloin, Sea Bream, though if you forced me to decide the Pan Seared Scallops were exquisite... Jason did acknowledge that some plates came out at random times, though it did not hinder our evening and he brought over a glass of wine on top of the Albarino we'd consumed. This was followed up with a local complimentary chocolate liqueur.
We concluded our culinary trip by sharing the crème Catalan (where else) and a cheeky espresso martini...
I knew that I'd made the right choice for our celebration, as I loved the personal touches that differentiate between a very good restaurant to excellent, so all the plaudits are well deserved.
A restaurant for all occasions - Highly recommended
Another great find. This restaurant certainly deserves the good reviews. The menu was different and certainly not your standard tapas, the food was AMAZING. The plate sizes are great for... read more two sharing and would recommend start with 3 and then order more so that food stays hot and have time to digest and decide.
I visited Rao when visiting Barcelona with my husband for my 30th birthday and this place did not disappoint! If you are looking for a tapas place in the centre... read more of Barcelona then Rao is a must! This place is absolutely incredible, the food is so tasty and presentation is excellent, the dishes are all very inventive with lots of unique flavours. My favourite dish was the crispy sea bream served with grilled avocado, romesco sauce with a garlic aioli foam! Jason looked after us on the night, making sure we had everything we needed and we were happy with all the dishes. Next time I visit Barcelona I will be going back to Rao!

What an amazing restaurant!!! Great ambiance, fantastic service, stunning original food.
When you find a place like this you are tempted to keep quiet about it so you can get... read more a table more easily But being a polite person it is only fair to spread the word.. grilled octopus and ceviche are simply stunning.
Delicious flavour combinations and excellent, attentive but never intrusive service. We had four fantastic dishes between two and shared a dessert which we couldn’t finish - it was delicious but... read more we were full! We started with ceviche which was exceptional, followed by sea bass, then scallops, then duck, perfectly cooked and served with teeny tiny little carrots that were just bursting with flavour - each dish had such interesting flavour combinations, we couldn’t fault any of them. Good value too , just over €100 for 5 dishes, aperitifs and a great bottle of Verdejo. Michelin quality (imho).
This would have to be one of the most delicious meals we have had whilst traveling. Came upon it quite unexpectedly. Lucky to get a table as we had no... read more reservation but the quality of service, food and drink was exquisite. We were treated like the most important people!!! Delightful. We have since recommended this restaurant to many people as it was so wonderful.
