We ventured to Rambla whilst Max was cutting his top teeth and desperate to stand up at all times, they kindly sat us in back, at our request and we narrowly avoided breaking a chicken ornament. It’s only just opened so all the baby friendly stuff (highchairs/baby change) is still in the works but the dining room is spacious enough to manage a buggy and the staff are willing.
I’d been on a sort of unfortunate holiday to Barcelona a few years ago and convinced myself that I wasn’t overly fond of tapas but Rambla has stood me corrected. Cool and paired back, bare boards and cobalt and hessian, the Catalan tapas menu is choc full of seriously tasty and unusually presented dishes, all of which delighted. The cherry on top, Rambla is notably cheaper than most places nearby.
The service was attentive and eager, the staff really want you to have a good time. The restaurant, at least during the lunch service, felt relaxed and despite Max struggling with his teeth we didn’t feel uncomfortable having him with us. I’d recommend a late lunch here with a little one. I have a sneaking suspicion that in the evening Rambla gets a bit sexy. It’s just a hunch but take a date and let me know. The bill will leave you with enough leftover to pay someone to mind the baby.
What’s good? The cured salmon rulada, the oxtail canelones and quail drumsticks were all excellent.
Kid friendly? Getting there.
