rao platillos to share


Opening its doors in May, Raó might be a newbie to Barcelona’s restaurant and bar scene but is rapidly establishing itself as a must-visit. “Raó” in Catalan translates to “reason” and three of those underpin what this dining hotspot offers.

Locally sourced and seasonal products are favored to create modern delights that are based on a selection of Mediterranean and traditional local dishes; the restaurant is a stylish, cozy space located in one of the most emblematic streets of the city; and experienced, energetic staff are on hand to give you the kind of fulfilling service that ensures that you’ll be back to devour more. An open kitchen reveals chefs dishing up and serving Catalan platillos, perfect for sharing.

Choose from grilled octopus leg with creamy potato, paprika & Kalamata olive emulsion; slow-cooked, acorn-fed pork cheek with green apple compote; or smoked burrata, butternut squash confit with sage, vanilla & red endive, among more.
