CentOnze welcomes its guests right off the world famous Las Ramblas boulevard and into its chic, light and modern interior for a dining experience that is both refined and affordable. The emphasis of the kitchen is to create modern Catalan and Mediterranean dishes with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients bought from the La Boqueria market. In fact the name CentOnze, or 111, is derived from the fact that the restaurant is one hundred and eleven steps away from the world famous food bazaar. There are several menus to choose from, starting with the à la carte that includes both tapas and smaller plates, such as homemade Iberian ham croquettes and patatas bravas mini-towers, and mains that include grilled turbot and slow-roasted shoulder of lamb. For the indecisive, there's a well-priced tasting menu that includes grilled monkfish medallions and white chocolate parfait, plus a three course menu del dia (lunchtime menu) that is fantastic value at just €16 during the week. With vegetarian, halal and gluten-free options they can accommodate everybody. After lunch or dinner you may want to linger for a sparkling libation at the adjoining Le Pop Cocktail Bar.
Beautiful venue. We don't normally eat at hotel restaurants but we were staying nearby and read the good reviews online. The food and service were really five star and if you consider the tasting menu was less than 40 euros and had four courses then its excellent value for money.

Delicious. THe lunch time menu is a real bargain. We felt a bit underdressed as its such a nice place but the staff were great and the food was perfect! We were surprised how small the bill was.
