The luxurious Nobu Barcelona is the destination for the sophisticated traveler. Far from the busy and noisy streets of the historic center, this hotel is a quiet enclave. It’s by the Plaza de España, in the charming neighborhood of Eixample. You are still close to the main sites, but you are far enough to enjoy a slice of quiet.
The Japanese identity
As the word “nobu” suggests, this hotel takes inspiration from the Land of the Rising Sun. In Japanese, nobu means trust and prolong. That’s exactly what you will want to do after you’ve stayed at this hotel: prolong your stay.
This place is a blend of Japanese nuances and urban lifestyle. It’s a piece of Asian order and calm in the chaotic and Mediterranean Barcelona. It’s as minimal as Japan’s style and as bold as Spanish vibes. The two cultures merge in the restaurant too.
The menu is created by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and it’s inspired by flavors from all over the world. It’s a “New Style” cuisine with innovative dishes and tasteful cocktails. The two signature dishes are: Yellowtail with Jalapeño and Black Cod with Miso. If you feel like trying something else, the menu is full of options.
There is a lunch and dinner list to choose from. You can order the Bento boxes, perhaps with a Barcelona twist, like the Vegetable Light Garlic and Rice. For a different dish, pick the Nobu tacos, like the Lobster Wasabi Sour Cream. For dinner the Omakase
Multi Course Tasting Menu is the ideal choice to have it all. Otherwise, you can taste all the favorites of Japanese cuisine, such as sashimi and nigiri.
The restaurant is worth going to just for the view, since it’s on the 23rd floor.
In and around Nobu Barcelona
You are a walk away from the historic center of the city. The Sagrada Familia and soccer lovers will enjoy being so close to the iconic Camp Nou.
