Dishes with history

At Pòrtic Boqueria each recipe has an origin, a reason. A reason that satisfy the palate of our customers.

Maybe it is because the story of the birth of our restaurant is part of the Mercat de la Boqueria and the Palau de la Virreina, spaces that embraces our activity.

The first was located at the gates of the ancient city, while the second was the work of the Marqués de Castellbell. But Barcelona grew and grew, and the bourgeoisie who was walking down Las Ramblas did not like seeing the butcher’s shops surrounding, so they moved to the garden of the convent of San José, where there had been built an arcaded square, and where the market came in 1836.

All a gastronomic journey through the history that extends today with the restaurant Pòrtic Boqueria.
