THIS RESTAURANT DOESN’T OFFER BRUNCH ANYMORE
Every person, who has visited Barcelona knows the beautiful Plaça Reial and the restaurant Ocaña, but probably not many people know that now is possible to enjoy a Sunday brunch in this place with history and character.
It’s possible that not everyone know that this restaurant takes his name from the painter José Pérez Ocaña, who used to live in Plaça Reial. He was born in 1947 and was a freedom defender. During the 70’s he was a leading character in Barcelona of many alternative movements of the Spanish transition. Such an original character has also the restaurant Ocaña. Having a brunch while admiring the spacious room will let you think about the history of this place with high ceilings with exposed wood beams, parquet, columns, huge chandeliers lamp with candles and lot of natural light.
The menu, written on a newspaper page, offers many types of dishes like salads, sandwiches, combination plates, oysters or the more typical brunch’s dishes as pancakes, or eggs benedict. Close to the entrance there is also a nice counter with cakes, cookies and pastries. We ordered pancakes, eggs Nördic, eggs Mexico Lindo and a wok of vegetables as an extra and everything was very well presented. Tea lovers are supposed to know that the tea will be served in beautiful teapots that keep the liquid warm inside for a longer time. For people who’d like to have brunch with some cocktail, Ocaña offers Bloody Mary, Mimosa and a few more. But also “virgin” cocktails with no alcohol are available.
The restaurant has a very huge space inside and therefore is ideally for groups, but we saw also many couples and families with children. The big terrace within beautiful Plaça Reial, opened with nice weather, makes this restaurant even more attractive. In the very centre of Barcelona, in one of the most beautiful spots in the city, you can enjoy your brunch thinking on the time when the brunch even didn’t exist yet.
