Fine dining at the Restaurant Agut

Posted on 28th February 2012 by

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.
