Breakfast is a spread of typical Catalan produce, as well as cooked-to-order options, served in Michelin-star-holiding Xerta, which also serves up acclaimed fine-dining fare for lunch and dinner. Locally caught seafood is a star of the menu, including grilled octopus, oysters, squid, tuna and sea-bass, as well as shellfish and a daily catch.
There is a spacious Sky Bar up on the roof, serving salads, tapas, pastas, Catalan cheese boards and sandwiches, as well as oysters and caviar for the more patrician palate. The lounge bar serves a similar selection. There’s live music or a DJ on Thursday evenings.
Breakfast is served from 7am to 11am. Xerta opens for lunch between 1pm and 4pm, and dinner from 8pm and 11pm, Tuesday to Saturday. The Lobby Bar is open from 8am until 11pm; in summer, food is available on the roof terrace between 10.30am and 11pm.
Sharing plates of cheese and charcuterie, as well as comfort-food classics, can be dialled up to your room.
