Calling all Romeos and Juliets who plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day Barcelona style! Fresh flowers. Great food. Candlelight. Champagne. All this and more at Romeo and Juliette Restaurant, a sleek eatery in L’Exaimple, which elegantly serves a blend of French Mediterranean and Asian food. The contemporary setting is hip and yet has an intimate feeling as it is not a large restaurant.
Begin your meal with sophisticated cocktails served by Miguel, the international bartender who says, “I love what I do. I like to understand the psychology of people and give them precisely what they want.”
Barcelona style entres include squid stuffed with vegetables, cuttlefish ink sauce and peppers coulis. Lamb shanks with rosemary mashed potatoes, and giant shrimp with fennel sound delicious to me. Of course, being Spain, there is a long wine list. Check Restaurant Rules for more info on Spanish restaurants.
The people that work here have a passion for excellent food, drinks, and service. May your passions soar at Romeo and Juliet with your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day.
