When we were in Barcelona, we had had a full day of sighting seeing and walking around and we really did not feel like venturing far from the hotel. Conveniently located, less than half a block away, was Cafe Emma. A little French bistro with a straight forward, no nonsense menu. Steak tartar was the perfect ticket for dinner that night. A nice presentation and a huge serving of fries!There was a nice little patio right at the entrance but we chose to sit in the back of the restaurant. The decor was tastefully done, a light taupe and white paneled walls which gave the place a clean and crisp look.
I loved the use of the gigantic fork, knife and spoon mounted on the wall as part of the decor. The food, ambiance and service was so nice, we decided to come back for breakfast the next day.
Len had a beautiful poached eggs Benedict that sat on a pancake and a bed of sauteed spinach with a lovely piece of Jamon Iberico on top. I had a croissant, fresh orange juice (zumo naranja natural) and a Cafe con Leche. All very good.
Cafe Emma has definitely been added to our list of top places to dine when in Barcelona.
