To enjoy the flavor of tradition and the Catalan gastronomy, what could be better that a Modernism space from 1920, that preserves all the charm and original decoration, like El Gran Café. If you want to enjoy a more modern atmosphere, with a cuisine with international touches, in a restaurant full of locals, Bimba’s is your best option; on top of that you will be able to enjoy the fantastic Mediterranean weather in its terrace. Fall in love with a wide selection and variety of very upscale tapas in the heart of the city center; in Paseo de Gracia, the most glamorous avenue of the city, you will find Tenorio, and just around the corner from Plaça Catalunya, La Tramoia with a renovated decoration that will impress you. For a more sophisticated dinner in a very chic and European ambiance, Chéri is our best option; Mediterranean cuisine with French touches, and a DJ playing on Friday and Saturday nights. The product is the most important aspect of all our restaurants, and it is the main character of our gastronomy.

Wine tourism experiences.
The most traditional cuisine is based on poultry, presided over by Muscovy duck and Penedesenca chicken. Restaurants menus usually include fine poultry dishes along with other seasonal recipes, such as Xató, a salad of curly endive, cod, anchovies and olives with a special sauce, also typical of the districts of the Baix Penedès and the Garraf.
Typical, too, of the Baix Penedès district are Coques enramades, a kind of flatbread decorated with vegetable produce from the land of the Penedès, and meat or fish.
Not to be missed are the traditional patisserie offerings, starting with the sweet Coques (flatbreads) of Vilafranca, the Gelidencs (small sponge cakes with burnt cream) of Gelida, the Coques de les Vidues (“Widows’ flatbreads) and Noiets (meringue cakes covered in chocolate) of Sant Sadurní and the Carquinyolis (almond biscotti) of Sant Quintí or of Torrelles de Foix, the Bufats (almond pastries) of the Baix Penedès, the Orelletes (crispy, thin ear-shaped flatbreads) and other specialities accredited by different bakeries, as well as the specific offerings of the master chocolatiers.
