Located just above Diagonal in the most upmarket part of Gràcia, Roig Robí is on the charming and inconspicuous Carrer de Sèneca, well known for it’s used furniture stores.
The modernist gem, Casa Fuster sits around the corner to one side. To the other side is the financial district and the restaurant is a favorite for business lunches.
Launched by Mercè Navarro in 1986, Roig Robí serves traditional Catalan cuisine while also making adaptations to suit modern tastes. Mercè summarizes the approach to her work saying; “cooking must be done with love and honesty.”
The restaurant has a focus on using fresh seasonal products. Fresh fish and seafood are delivered to twice a day, the veal used has Denomination of Origin from the Pyrenees, lamb comes from the Esgueva valley and the Iberian suckling pig comes from Huelva. Vegetables such as mushrooms and asparagus are among the products purchased directly from local farmers.
Roig Robí’s conservatory-style dining room is arranged around a patio-garden, making a peaceful oasis in contrast with the bustling city center that lies outside it’s doors.
