El nombre de este original restaurante, ubicado en el barrio judío y perteneciente al Grupo Travi, proviene del antiguo taller de un famoso pintor del barrio gótico de finales del siglo XIX. El establecimiento, acogedor y con mucha historia, ofrece una exquisita cocina catalana artesanal y de calidad en la que destacan platos como los canelones de la abuela o la paletilla de cordero al horno. Su rica gastronomía se disfruta al máximo en su local de grandes cristaleras, muros de piedra y vigas de madera. Desde la planta de arriba puedes observar todo el restaurante y apreciar su encantadora decoración rústica. El Pintor es ese rincón para comer tranquilo en un lugar tan concurrido y caótico como es a veces el barrio gótico.

INSIDER tip

Ya no tienes que salir de la ciudad para comer unos buenos Cargols a la llauna... En pleno Gòtic te esperan unos de los mejores.

    We loved the staff, the food, the look of the interior, and the area. A wonderful night. Only negative was, it was very noisy due to stone walls, tile floors, very crowded.

    A perfect dinner in Barcelona. Actually, it was our second visit to El Pintor in the week we were in Barcelona. We highly recommend it.

    Superb food and great atmosphere. Manuel was our waiter—he was charming, efficient, and extremely helpful. We had the seafood paella, snails, and salmon specialty. Expensive but worth every penny!

    Great meal! Very quaint!! Great place for a family dinner. Very nice wait staff. A little hard to understand, with the language barrier. But I think that it added to the overall authentic experience.

    Wonderful food, excellent service and a great alternative to the loud/crowded pinxto scene.

    Excelent dinner session in "El Pintor". Only suggestion is to have more space between tables in ground floor, in order to improve comfort.....
