REVIEW

Tragaluz

The flagship restaurant of the indomitable Grupo Tragaluz (all of their restaurants in Barcelona are excellent, especially their high-end El Principal and more casual Bar Lobo) serves excellent food in a striking interior (there is a gigantic, slanted movable glass ceiling, hence the name) that is a mixture of industrial chic and indoor garden.  The ground floor has three bars – an oyster bar, a ceviche and sushi bar and a natural charcoal Japanese grill bar for making kusiyaki.  Tragaluz is on the upper floors, where you pass through the kitchen into a garden-like dining area.  The top floor is reserved for more informal dining or overflow from downstairs, with fireplaces and sofas. 

The cuisine is Spanish-Mediterranean and is driven by seasonal ingredients.  The Iberian ham puff pastry is probably the best dish featuring Iberian ham we have ever had.  There is also an outstanding mushroom and asparagus ravioli and a veal pailliard. This is one of the best options in Barcelona for a reasonably priced but invariably solid meal while being surrounded with a sophisticated, charming ambiance.
