The Gourmande Library
The “Sincere Cuisine” from the only “live cuisine” in the Raval (Barcelona)
The Gourmande Library is an eatery located in the heart of one of the most iconic neighbourhoods in Barcelona, El Raval. We are just 2 minutes away from The Ramblas, between the popular market of La Boqueria and the Gran Teatre del Liceo, close to the Teatre Romea, and just meters away from both the Filmoteca de Catalunya and the Library of Catalonia.
In any library books are collected and stored. In The Gourmande Library we keep and treasure delicious recipes of Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine, to share their tastes and experience these culinary delights with you.
In our eatery we want you to feel at home, so we remain faithful to the aesthetic appearance of the old premises. Our fantastic open kitchen, fitted into the dining room, invites you to attend the daily live show of cooking, that is our clearest statement of intent: an honest and nearby local place where nothing is hidden from our customers and in which “Sincere Cuisine” is practised.
In our eatery we are faithful to our surroundings. We respect the natural environment. We cook with local and ecological fresh products, and with classic healthy and traditional recipes made with care and detail. The most authentic and delicate flavours of our Catalan and Mediterranean dishes are all waiting to be discovered by you. That is our philosophy of ” Sincere Cuisine”.
We are pleased to share with you the fact that The Gourmande Library has become one of the most charming places in Barcelona. A place for you to surrender to the pleasures of good food. This is thanks to the blend of the vintage touches of our premises and the location in the stimulating and legendary district, together with our culinary offering and our respectful and dynamic service
Have a nice meal!
