Enjoying a dinner in the heart of the historic center
Plaça Reial, one of Barcelona´s most famous and most lively squares, in the heart of the historic city centre, near las ramblas and just a few meters away from the Liceo. It is surrounded by a lot of very nice restaurants. Because of all this choice it might be hard to choose one if you are in the mood to eat in this lovely area. Here is where I can help you. Visited twice in 4 weeks, Rossini has become my absolute favorite. It has a great terrace facing Plaça Reial, but the inside is also very worthwhile! It is a pretty big restaurant but because of the charming interior and its atmosphere it feels very intimate.
On the menu they have a fusion of Italian- Mediterranean and international cuisine, but since it is also a pizzeria a big part consists of pizza´s, which are absolutely delicious by the way. If you don´t like pizza or you´re just not in the mood, you can choose between the other dishes Rossini offers, like different kinds of pasta, fish, meat and even tapas! For starters they have a lot of Italian things, but also a large variety of salads. For desert you can choose from approximately ten, very different and very lovely deserts, like ice cream, homemade tiramisu or apple cake. For the kids until 12 they have a special children´s menu, so you can easily take them with you.
For groups, of minimal 10 people, they have three menu´s. Varying from €21 to €32, you can choose between 2 starters, 2 or 3 main courses and 2 deserts. They can also arrange special menus for companies.
So if you want to have a delicious meal, on a great location, with your family or friends, or you need to organize a special lunch, an event, business lunch or private party, Rossini is the place to be!
