If you want a balcony view to the city of Barcelona, you just cannot go wrong with the Mirabe. A restaurant that is well known for the grand view of the city, it’s also a haven for foodies who wish for a culinary experience that is as good as the sight their eyes see. The evenings are especially crowded here as most diners love to see the bedazzled view of the city. Surprisingly, fans of the restaurant point out that while the experience is wholesome in every way, the prices are quite reasonable, so while you book your tables here, make sure you enjoy everything you can without worrying about a hefty bill at the end of it all. As far as the food goes, when one says it matches the view, there’s not much else you need to add!
The locals are the ones who know the true value of great food in their city and when you see locals enjoying their meals at Can Valles, you know you’ve made the right choice. You can begin your meal with the Jamon Iberico Pata Negra or any of the other starters before moving on to the plenty of other choices at hand. Whether it’s the Carpaccio of Smoked Deer Meat or Canelones de Pies de Cerdo, it’s difficult to go wrong with any dish at this beautiful restaurant. Simplistic, yet classy and tasteful, are words that define Can Valles perfectly and those who visit here often end up searching for something similar no matter where their travels take them!
If you love the beachfront, you’ll love this place. If you love great music, you’ll love this place.

The Carpe Diem Lounge Club or CDLC as it is also known, is a beautiful property overlooking the sea and unlike other beachfront restaurants that believe that the view makes up for shoddy service and average food, this one makes an effort in every department.
