We arrived in Barcelona, ready to discover the long list of restaurants, bars and other places we had set up. Until we stepped into the oasis called Hotel Brummell, it was 30+ degrees outside and after seeing the roof terrace with splash pool and sun beds we kind of forgot about the list and the rest of Barcelona.

Danish beauty Höst in Copenhagen, French favorite Septime in Paris, and now there’s the third place to add to my personal top 3 of most beautiful restaurants: The Kettle Black.
Nestled in a gorgeous, 1880s, typical Victorian house. In contrast with the big sleek, modern apartment towers build around it but it works together perfectly and almost makes it look like a surrealistic artwork. And this is just the outside..
Inside you’ll find honeycomb mosaic tiles, green ceramic tiles, concrete, wood, plants, marble, brass: everything merges seamlessly. It’s light, elegant, stylish, detailed and simplistic. Perfectly designed by Studio You Me.
Not only the interior is a pleasure to look at, the dishes are real artworks as well. I was happy to see they serve the huge ricotta hotcakes I saw coming by earlier at their other venue Top Paddock and a lot on social media like Instagram as well. I was glad I finally got to taste them an they didn’t disappoint at all! Neither did the home-made colorful decorated coconut yoghurt and the cray fish roll. Looked and cooked perfectly.
Ohh.. how I miss having my Australian ‘brekkie’..
