The fifth generation now leads this seafood restaurant, which first opened in 1908. A favourite of locals, it was first opened by the Cid family who lived in Barceloneta. As the years passed, it gained something of a reputation for its high quality, traditional food and soon became a classic tavern in the local neighbourhood.
So why is it called Can Ros rather than being named after the CId family? The name Can Ros comes from the fact that some Cid are redheads! A tongue in cheek joke from the humorous Catalan family who loved to live, laugh and cook!
The restaurant’s decor is a reminder of simpler times, and the food really hits the spot. We highly recommend the rich seafood rice dishes and fideuà (a paella-like fish and seafood noodle dish) with cuttlefish or the muscles with rice and beer.Finish it all off with the ‘torrija' with black chocolate ice cream - delicious!
