    Trobador Braseria Mediterrania: Basic in Barri Gotic

    by tigerjapan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Trobador is a buzzing Mediterranean brasserie with a wide-ranging menu, set on the busy Carrer Ferran.

    It was very popular and there were a lot of locals dinning there (mainly in large groups) on the night we went. The octopus and Spanish omlette were very average, but the mains were fine and the price wasn't bad. The wait staff leave a lot to be desired though, but for a meal after a day of sightseeing it was fine.

    Favorite Dish: Stay simple or go for tapas.

    Trobador: The comfy chairs!

    Ok, in best Monty Python style...'the comfy chair'..
    There is, of course, a lot more to this restaurant than some nice sofas but they do help!!

    This brasserie is located is very close to the Placa Catalunya and right on Rambla Catalunya and is one of a group of restuaruants.
    A very striking d├ęcor lots of black, white, red and blue with modern art work on the walls.
    The menu is Mediterranean with emphasis on dishes from the grill.
    I think this ranks among the best restaurants I have visited in Barcelona in terms of value, service and, needless to say, quality of food
    Service was very good with our waitress willing to spend time explaining the menu to us and making recommendations. As with most places we visited, their English was fantastic.

    Visit the website (see below) to book online

    Favorite Dish: Started with tomato and olive oil and olives.
    Main course was black and white puddings and chorizo sausage servered with white beans. Also had a side order char grilled vegetables.
    Ordered a small bottle of rioja of red wine and finished with a cup of black coffee.
    Very good sized portions!

    Visited this restaurant on a Tuesday night and it was full. Surroundings are modern and stylish. Cooking area is in full view of the customers. Staff were very professional and friendly.

    Favorite Dish: Anything from the grill including fish. Leave room for dessert.

    Trobador: A Good Braseria in Barca

    by jetsetterforever Updated Jan 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Trobador is a nice, centrally-located "Braseria" that mixes mediterranean influences with the local Spanish-Catalan cuisine. A very nice ambience and service was ok (though, they can be stretched thin during peak hours). For you vegetarians out there, they have a nice grilled veggie plate.

    Favorite Dish: The meat dishes seem to be the strength here, so you may want to try the Entrecote.
