Fodor's Review

Candelighted romantic nooks and artisanal recipes researched by culinary historian Teresa Ferri are the lures at this little hideaway 50 feet from the lateral facade of the Santa Maria del Mar basilica. L'Ou Comballa ("the dancing egg") refers to the Barcelona tradition of placing an egg atop the city's fountains to celebrate Corpus Cristi. Dishes here range from Catalan to Turkish to Greek, with Moroccan or medieval Sephardic recipes collected from around the Mediterranean over generations of Ferri chefs. Try the Sephardic hen.
