Bar Cañete is the perfect escape from all Rambla tourist traps. After shaking off all persistent – if not aggressive – restaurant owners you quickly flee into this quiet little street to discover tradional dishes in a great old-school decor. Most seating is directly at the bar, which forms the heart of the very long and very narrow restaurant. The lack of tourists just makes everything so much better. High quality food, the friendliest staff of all Barcelona and a perfectly organized chaos. Although at the bar you’re not able to look directly at the rest of your party, there are so many other details that catch your gaze. All dishes are tapas size and are prepared right in front of you where you have a full view of the kitchen. Their specialty is (shell)fish but the few meat dishes they serve are mouth-watering too. No wonder this place has become one of the most popular Barcelona restaurants in such a short time!
