Description: The Venue's notion is simple: old school elegant dishes using the finest ingredients prepared by our top chefs. The deceptively easy dishes earn their place with the choicest cuts of meat imported from Ireland. The vibe? Grown up, relaxed, playful. The setting? An opulent room you'll feel at home in, only better. In how many places can you get a perfectly cooked rib-eye steak with immaculate flavour, crisp triple cooked chunky chips? Notice the words "perfectly" and "immaculate". No, there are not many restaurants with the courage to deliver a menu based on the very sound theory that less is more; that a good kitchen is much better off cooking steak rather than mucking around with all manner of fashionable, cheffy malarkey. So, we take our hats off to our fantastic team, for helping us bring The Venue Sreakhouse to Barcelona. Come and join us at The Venue where there's always a warm welcome!

Without a doubt the best restaurant I have been to in Barcelona. I was in a party of eight, and each and every one of us were in agreement that the whole experience was fantastic. Great food, great service, great Venue.
Will be back soon!

I discovered this reastaurant on it's opening day and, looking for a good steak and comfortable and attractive ambience, decided to risk my luck and patronize the establishmentt. I had a guest with me from Australia and we both felt the restaurant looked inviting. We were greeted at the door with a warm "welcome" and shown to a suitable table in a creative and atmospheric surroundings with stylized wall paintings resembling the cave paintings in France or Northern Spain. In short, when you were inside, you decenmded into a magical world and all sense of time was lost. The decortion itself was beautiful and conducive to relaxing and enjoying what was to come.. The menu and wine list looked to be quite fine so we ordered two sirloin steaks and a good Merlot and awaited the results.

This proved to be an experience I will gladly repeat again and again. The food was better than simply fine. The steaks were prepared with love and skill and the quality if the meat was superior to almost anything I had every tasted. Although we knew the wine was excellent, this Merlot (as were all the other wines on the wine list) were not only all of excellent vintages but very reasonably priced. The presentation of both food and wine and the friendliness of the staff and their interest in our well being and awareness of the fine line between being at the service of the guest whom they also let alone to enjoy the meal and the dining experience, was masterfuly executedl.

I look for comparisons here and think of such legendary restaurants as Ben Benson's in New York where, having dinind there in years past, I can equate that quality with what I encountered here. This is a real Insider tip. The prices are very reasonable (We paid about €100 for two persons with an glorious bottle of wine), the service attentive, firendly and personal and the Location, easily reached by bus or metro, to be ideal. I will return and will bring guests to what I think may become a Landmark of culinary artistry in Barcelona. If you are looking for excvellent steaks, fine wine, wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff and reasonable Prices, I can only recommend to try The Venue. The Restaurant, with the cows in tuxedos at the entrance, is much better than simply excellent.

I have just come back from having the best steak of my life! My ribeye was amazing. The waitress told me it is just open last week and the meat is all Irish or Scottish. WOW! I think i have found myself a gem and I will definitely go back.
