“Amar” means love in Spanish and this is the main ingredient of the restaurant’s cuisine. Without love, one can’t cook, one can’t welcome guests an one cannot give guests a wonderful experience. AMAR reflects the passion which El Palace Barcelona and Rafa Zafra both have for this new restaurant and dining destination for the sea produce, for the Mediterranean Sea, for Catalan culture and gastronomy. The word Barcelona goes with “Amar” because of the hotel’s love for this wonderful city as an emblem of the city.
2022 marks the 103rd birthday of El Palace Barcelona (former Ritz Hotel), as the hotel continues to evolve and curate innovative experiences for its guests while respecting its rich heritage and legacy. The new restaurant will feature a new gastronomic experience, where history and modernity evolve in parallel, giving rise to interesting dialogues between the memory of the building and the dynamism of a space celebrated for its creativity of the past and present.
Amar Barcelona is the city’s newest restaurant and dining destination in Barcelona. Dishes are an homage to Mediterranean culture, with delicious sea products like oysters, caviar, and other seafood, along with a selection of classic Catalan dishes, and a tribute to the classic dished of the former Ritz Hotel.
