Description: Roig Robi aims to use the best possible ingredients available: fresh fish and shellfish are brought in twice a day, beef comes from the Pyrenees, lamb from Esgueva and the Ibérico pork from Huelva. The kitchen produces traditional but creative Catalan cuisine. Its original menu features dishes such as prawns with crispy leeks and sweet garlic sauce, trotters in breadcrumbs with tartare sauce, or almond soup with fig sorbet. The menu changes according to season and its garden terrace is a little oasis in the middle of Barcelona. It is located just off the Diagonal very close to Gaudi?s La Pedrera.

A friend and I decided to dine here while in Barcelona. We enjoy fine dining and are always selective of where we dine to ensure every meal is an experience. The restaurant is elite and if you are looking for a quiet evening out or wanting to close a high end business deal with fantastic service and food, this is certainly the place to dine. Our waiter was very helpful and ensured that we knew what wines to have with our food. We decided to have the Potted Iberian roasted suckling pig for our main, I was blown away by the dish and certainly recommend it for anyone even if you do not enjoy pork. This sensational flavors in this dish certainly changed my mind about pork. Beans and peas stewed with onion and black sausage was a great starter as was the chicken cannelloni with truffle sauce. The waiter was pleasant and helpful. The restaurant has been operational for 33 years and is probably one of the most popular restaurants for true Catalan food. The menus were designed by Antoni Tàpies and the restaurant is frequented by world class chefs. When you are there ask your waiter to show you the wine collection as this is certainly a treat. I will return upon my next visit to Barcelona. Thanks for the fantastic experience!

Food was lovely, atmosphere was lacking slightly. Service was ok but had to keep asking for things like drinks, and additional service. Would like to come back for a personal meal as this was a business dinner.

We had a delightful, delicious, romantic dinner at Roig Robi for last New Year's Eve, a night where usually even the best restaurants offer disappointing pre-set festive menu. Well, the menu was fixed but it was really an exquisite culinary experience. The cooking style was simple but really valuable in terms of ingredient and preparation, a top quality restaurant without the minus of the fancy, "nouvelle cuisine" restaurants that give you nothing in the plate and everything in the bill.
Delicious amuse bouche among which: the "jamon iberico de bellota", a prawns and sea bass tartare, a fantastic mashed potato with vacherin cheese and black truffle finally the memorable Iberian suckling-pig with quince. The ambience is lovely too, elegant and refined with a beautiful inner garden that should be gorgeous during summer. Service was attentive and becoming. Prices are correct considered the kind of place and food. The restaurant is located in the Eixample quarter and if you go there by walking you can experience a full immersion in the wonderful modernist architecture of one of the most charming part of Barcelona. Strongly recommended.

We left it to the Maitre d' who suggested the menu. The main course of fish cooked in salt was just wonderful as was the rest of the menu. We chose to be introduced to the wines of the area and as usual these fitted perfectly with the food of the area. Excellent

We had planned to eat elsewhere but that restaurant was closed for renovations. The very helpful staff at our hotel (Alma Barcelona) recommended Roig Robi. We went over a few minutes before they opened, but they were generally accommodating and we had an excellent meal. The tiny squid saute I had for lunch was among the best seafood entrees I've ever had. Extremely fresh and perfectly cooked and seasoned.
As other guests trickled in, it was clear that the place is a local favorite of the well-to-do. Al the other customers were well-to-do appearing Catalans.
