Roig Robi Restaurant – Barcelona

Posted on 02 April 2010

Located in the heart of Barcelona just off Avinguda Diagonal, Roig Robi has been serving classic Catalonian fare for over twenty five years.  Flavors drawn from classic Catalonian comfort food are set against a lovely indoor/outdoor garden seating area along with all of the top notch Spanish wines you could hope for.  Keeping things fresh is first priority here.  Fish is flown in twice a day with leftovers discarded not to be used again. The veal is always brought in from  from the Pyrenees, lamb comes in fresh from the Esgueva valley, the Iberian suckling pig comes from the green country pastures of Huelva.  Non-meat products such as truffles, mushrooms and asparagus are purchased directly from pickers or producers themselves. When they say fresh, they mean fresh. Joan Crosas, owner and director of Roig Robi takes pride in his restaurant and you will find him greeting each table and chatting with customers (many of whom are regulars) on a daily basis while his mother Mercè Navarro can be found in the kitchen cooking up the delicious plates and bringing a personal and intimate touch to the family owned restaurant.  The sauteed baby squid is delightful, make a note to try it and watch the ink squish out of the skin. That’s fresh. Do not visit Barcelona without checking out this oasis in the center of the city.
