Fodor's Review

It's a hike to get to this immense palace a few minutes' walk above the Avenida Tibidabo metro station—but it's worth it. The kitchen, featuring a vast, wood-fired clay oven, specializes in Castilian cooking, with cordero lechal (roast suckling lamb), morcilla (black sausage), and pimientos de piquillo as star players. The Art Nouveau details here—carved-wood trim, stained-glass partitions, engraved glass, Moorish archways, and terra-cotta floors—belie the fact that this extravagantly beautiful building known as El Frare Blanc (the White Monk) was originally a monastery. Outdoor tables offer a pleasant alfresco option, and the roof terrace has views over the city to enjoy as you sip a coffee or cocktail. Other branches of the same chain across the city offer similar fare in less spectacular surroundings.
