There is no doubt that the Catalonian capital Barcelona offers a great variety of differents cuisine from all around the world. You can try traditional Catalan dishes, the must-have tapas and paella at Los Caracoles. Founded by the Bofarull family in 1835, they have been able to transform this restaurant into one the the most charismatic ones in the Gothic District of the city. The restaurant was renamed later on, to "Los Caracoles", this for honouring one of the most famous dishes, snails (caracoles). This magnificant restaurant is still owned by the Bofarull family, now the fourth generation of the Bofarull's, and they still manage to maintain the same concept of high quality traditional cooking. Frequent guests of the restaurant are famous people from show business, politics, finance and the world of art. The Los Caracoles restaurant was awarded with the Medal of Merit for Tourism.
