If you are looking for something out of the ordinary to make your Barcelona experience just that little bit extra-special, then a visit to the Restaurant Agut is a must.
This restaurant was founded in 1924 by Agusti Agut and his wife Paquita, but then it was a simple tavern serving crews from the nearby port. Throughout the Civil War and then post-war, loyal customers kept the place going – behind closed doors! The 50s and 60s saw L’Agut become the best kept secret amongst Catalonian intelligentsia and those from the art world, who exchanged their paintings for meals – many of which can still be seen adorning the walls.
Today, L’Agut still has a bohemian look, and friendliness is always the dish of the day, but also expect to find delicious meals such as partridge with cabbage; cod and pepper au gratin with garlic mayonnaise; monkfish stew with prawns or skewered prawns with parmesan gratin.
You will find L’Agut at Gignas, 16; and the opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 1.30 pm until 4.00 pm and 8.00 pm until midnight.
