Gamvik

Carrer Balmes 165, Barcelona, 08008

When you think about it, Gamvik is rather an unusual name and despite the refreshing Catalan cuisine they offer in their Carrer Balmes restaurant in Barcelona, it does not have Spanish or Mediterranean origins. On enquiring of the polite staff, we discovered that it is the namesake of an exotic little fishing village in Norway where owner Robert Serna spent many of his childhood holidays. However, there is nothing Norwegian about the menu, as you will discover, at this charming establishment whose ever increasing popularity has propelled it into the realms of the must visit restaurants in the city. The colour scheme, a simple combination of greys and reds, creates a soothing and calm ambience and a general feeling of comfort and the plush dining area is a welcome respite from the crowded streets.

The colour scheme, a simple combination of greys and reds, creates a soothing and calm ambience and a general feeling of comfort and the plush dining area is a welcome respite from the crowded streets. They also have two separate rooms that are more suitable for private parties and other intimate occasions.

Sample the duck liver with mandarins for an unusual experience where the tart citrusy sweetness evens out the gamey flavour while the carpaccio of cod with tomato coulis, or artichoke hearts with foie and ceps, are some of the other delicious fare that will surely entice you. Pig's trotters with wild mushrooms, or the prawns from Costa Brava are regional Catalan fare with a light Mediterranean touch.

Do save room for the desserts, and try light, airy soufflés and coulants, a kind of fudge cake, with hot molten chocolate oozing out of them. The house specialty, Gamvik eggs with chocolate and rum infused foam are spectacular treats and warrant a repeat visit for those with a sweet tooth.

The extensive wine list is inclined towards Spain although there are quite a few classical and good quality wines from other countries, as well as a wide range of cava and champagne to choose from. Gamvik's proximity to shopping areas adds to its allure and helps round off a most satisfying culinary experience.
