Estimar was terrific: I thought much better than RdG.  We had anchoas, some sauteed clams with sherry, cold red prawns, a whole grilled sole, some salads, chips and patron peppers, rice pudding. Uniformly excellent;  the lenguado was superb, smoky from the grill, perfectly cooked to my taste ( but I like it maybe 30s more cooked than some), amazing seafood. And it was about 250 for 2, with a lot of food, with a bottle of cheap but excellent wine.

 

Just missed the pea season but did get some setas perrichicos (St George's mushrooms) at Via Veneto with some underpriced Roumier.

Such good food in Barcelona and it doesn't break the bank like it does in some cities.

Orange wine I think of as just making red wine but with white grapes.

Via Veneto is the Barcelona restaurant with the Wiltonesque atmosphere and I love it

Thanks - I booked Estimar , it does indeed sound what I am looking for. R d G is fine but I don’t like the atmosphere for some reason and the food last time was slightly sub par.

Any opinion on Estimar? I want to go to a seafood place that is not Marea Alta or Rias de Galicia
