Dining at Hotel Arts Barcelona

Hotel Arts Barcelona now has an exclusive pop-up restaurant, ROKA, located at the Marina Coastal Club for the Mediterranean summer season of 2023. This limited-time concept brings ROKA’s contemporary Japanese robatayaki cuisine to Barcelona’s waterfront.

ROKA, born in London in 2004, is renowned for its immaculately presented sushi and sashimi dishes, as well as its use of the traditional Japanese robata grill. The restaurant’s founder, Rainer Becker, was the first to bring this cooking technique to Europe.

Guests dining at ROKA Barcelona can expect to sample signature dishes such as Yellowtail sashimi with yuzu-truffle dressing, Wagyu sushi with oscietra caviar, and Sweet miso crème brulee for dessert. Located next to the Marina Coastal Club infinity pool and overlooking the world-renowned Frank Gehry statue ‘Fish’, ROKA promises to be the culinary highlight of the Summer.

The Secret Pantry is a very cool speakeasy restaurant, offering guests superior service and a unique, dining experience. What looks like a normal pantry selling local Catalan specialties hides a secret – a shelf that you push to gain access to a hidden dining room!

With a cozy, low lit atmosphere, this is the perfect haunt to escape the hustle and bustle of Barcelona while indulging in delicious dishes. Enjoy a range of traditional Catalan dishes and definitely ask for recommendations! We particularly liked the hake with prawns and the black truffle and wild forest mushroom creamed rice with Gramona cava and manchego cheese.

Whether it’s an intimate dinner or just drinks with friends, The Secret Pantry will make your time spent inside the hotel a truly special one!
