Fodor's Expert Review Can Culleretes

$ La Rambla Spanish

Just off La Rambla in the Barri Gòtic, this family-run restaurant founded in 1786 displays tradition in both decor and culinary offerings. Generations of the Manubens and Agut families have kept this unpretentious spot—Barcelona's oldest restaurant, listed in the Guinness World Records—popular for more than two centuries. Wooden beams overhead and bright paintings of the sea and landscapes on the walls surround a jumble of tables. The cooking is consistent rather than sophisticated, but traditional Catalan specialties such as spinach cannelloni with cod, wild boar stew, and white beans with botifarra sausage are competently presented.
