Visiting Nectari Restaurant in Barcelona, near Sants train station, is like diving into a harmonious culinary experience. As a member of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Spain, Nectari presents a gastronomic proposal where culinary technique serves the product, achieving a balance reflected in every dish with recognizable and perfectly balanced flavors.
I usually go for Nectari’s lunch menu, available at midday during weekdays for 40 euros. It’s my kind of place, especially since I’ve been avoiding long-tasting menus. They also offer a carefully selected range of house wines and cavas.
The soul behind these flavors is Chef Jordi Esteve, who describes his cooking as “modern and imaginative”, blending tradition with a contemporary touch. His commitment to local and seasonal produce is evident, not just in words but in his daily practices. Esteve and his team, notably young and enthusiastic, dedicate themselves to personally selecting the highest quality ingredients, both from markets and directly from farms.
