Really hard to come up with a fair judgement... food is good so you cannot consider it at all a tourist trap. Also the... wine was great. Service also kind and nice and reservation worked smooth. Yet, overall we consider the prices too high for the quality of the food being offered. Maybe due to location close to Rambles. For a similar price you can find better food in different areas of Barcelona. In total a grading of 3.8 would be reasonable from our point of view. Probably still one of the better places around Rambles.leer más

Fantastic! I had a really great time at RAO Restaurant.Food is amazing, as I was alone I was advised that the plates... are normally to share and it is recommended to order 2 plates in this case, so I decided to order the tuna tartare and the paella. Both were really really good.Another highlight is the people. Everybody is super friendly, especially the lady at the bar. By the way, thanks for all the suggestions about Barcelona!Last but not least: you have to try the sangria!leer más

Very very recommended!!! Went there with my boyfriend for our 4th anniversary, it really made our night amazing! The... pricing is a bit more on the expensive side compared to other tapas places, but it's well worth it!I've seen that people in the reviews have recommended the scallops, we're really glad to have followed these tips, the scallops were really amazing! I would also add the tenderloin as recommendation, the meat was exquisite! (And unlike a previous review I've read, nothing was too salty, actually their salt is amazing! I want to know where they get it haha)Overall dining there was an amazing experience, with delicious food, a beautiful decor, rustic yet refined, and lovely staff!If you're thinking of eating there though, I would recommend making a reservation, when we arrived it was completely full, and we had to come back a bit later. And maybe it was for the best, I think the ambiance when there is less people is calmer and makes it more cozy, especially since it's not a very big restaurant.leer más

Food was good but nothing too memorable. The flavor profile was quite simple. For example the Spanish omelette with... truffle does taste like truffle but nothing else besides truffle. Without any additional flavor (even just pepper would do), you actually can't bring out the taste of truffle that well. So the whole dish ended up being bland, which is unfortunate given the great ingredients put in there.leer más

The atmosphere here is very relaxed and pleasant and the food was absolutely amazing! The selection and quality of the cocktails was also fantastic.I would highly recommend the beef cheeks, they fall apart and melt in your mouth; the grilled octopus is also fantastic.My friend and I have spent almost a month in Europe now; we would go as far as to say this restaurant provided us with the best food so far, and the most pleasant and friendly service.Highly recommend you visit, you will not be disappointed, this has been a highlight of our trip.leer más

Excellent quality food prepared with thoughtfulness & care. Creative cocktails, nice wines. Charming, rustic small... restaurant. We returned for a second evening before leaving Barcelona. Reservations are a must. If I have 1 criticism, it’s the service could be more attentive. The first night we wanted to order more dishes but couldn’t get anyone’s attention, the second night we caught the servers eye to request the wine list but he simply turned around & never made contact again. We finally got the list & a bottle from a staff person who was not our server. I still give 5 stars because of the food quality. Please work on service!leer más

Lovely restaurant in a great location. The food was not our typical type of cuisine however we still ate everything... except the duck because it was too rare for us. They offered to cook the duck more but we declined and they kindly offered to take it off the bill. We probably wouldn’t come back to this restaurant because it is not our type of cuisine but that is not the restaurants fault. Five stars for Customer service, professionalism and friendliness.leer más

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 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!read more

While in Barcelona we visited Rao twice! Our first visit, with no reservation, Jason so very graciously carved out... space in the completely booked restaurant for us. He treated us like royalty instead of unprepared jet lagged tourists. HINT: DO make a reservation! The English speaking staff were great at explaining the menu and suggesting pairings. We chose the Ceviche Rao, Cristal Bread, and Pan-Seared Scallops. We were not disappointed! Our second visit we added the Entrecote Steak and for dessert, the Chocolate & Caramel with Salt. Perfection in every way. The combination of superb cuisine, excellent staff and perfect "vibe" make this a destination experience not to be missed!This lovely little Rao is on a level with the best world class restaurants! Barcelona and Rao will see us again!read more

We found this restaurant on Yelp. Even though our Open Table reservation never arrived, the restaurant was able to... accommodate us. The waitstaff was excellent and our tapas selections were wonderful. I'd recommend this restaurant to you.read more

Visited this restaurant with my wife on 1st November during our trip to Barcelona. We had high expectations after... reading all the reviews, but our experience here was very underwhelming. The Entrecôte dish we ordered was tough and rubbery. It was almost impossible to even chew it! The chicken wing served was burnt and the king crab salad dish was bitter and there was only a few strands on crab in it. For dessert we had the mango cheesecake which was nice but the position size was tiny. All in all, it was truly a disappointing experience. This is my honest opinion.read more

Awesome restaurant in Barcelona, it's an oasis of delicious food in a gorgeous place. Service is world class, it makes... you feel a VIP in disguise, which I believe it's a gift these people master. I've already tasted 7 of their plates, and each one is prepared to gently but inevitably conquer your senses, and they do! They really are that good! A very beautiful restaurant to come back with your best friends. I definitely will.read more

Rao is probably the best restaurant in Barcelona. A hidden gem at the moment, but the word is getting out fast so get... there whilst you can. With an atmosphere perfectly placed between fine dining & casual, food perfectly balanced between tapas & main courses, all at reasonable prices, Rao is a force to be reckoned with on the BCN culinary scene! The restaurant has a cosy feel, but with a contemporary rustic touch. The exquisite presentation of all courses is the icing on the cake and only adds to perfectly balanced and innovative combinations of flavours. Although all dishes are probably delicious, we can personally reccommend the octopus, croquettes, roast beef, Patatas bravas, brownies & French bread.On our visit the owners, Julian and Maryana kindly added their in depth knowledge of the menu and surrounding region to educate us on the source of many ingredients, as well as local wines and beer.read more
