El Cafè de la Pedrera, Barcelona

(16,000+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Landmark
To see one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s most controversial designs, visit El Cafè de la Pedrera, known for its undulating stone facade and the wrought-iron decorations on its balconies and windows. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, the building features some of the most innovative elements of its time, including underground parking. Perhaps the most remarkable element of the building is the roof, which features enormous chimneys designed to look like medieval knights. The architect’s elaborate plans for the roof included adding a huge statue of the Virgin, but when the businessman who commissioned the building said no, Gaudí resigned from the project. Today, the roof is frequently the site of music performances. Check online for an accurate schedule of special events and available tours.

  • It's great to visit the Gaudii designed homes,but it is great to have a different experience in each one. La Pedrera has accomplished this with an original evening light show put to music on the roof ...  more »
  • Casa Mila' or La Pedrera is one of Gaudi's iconic buildings inspired by the waves of the ocean. The flowing facade, ironwork on the main gate and the balconies which look like seaweed makes you think ...  more »
  • Get tickets in advance. Roof, attic, and apartment are amazing. Light show on roof at night. Can be very crowded. Modernista Gaudi building on Passage De Gracia is something you will not see anywhere ...  more »

  • Although the cafe is nice comfortable and clean,I will never recommend or go there again. The waiter was not friendly at all.Somehow unpoliet.For me the behaviour of serviceman and owner of bar ,restarand , cafe is really important.
  • The place is located inside of La pedrera and it has a Gaudi decor. The restaurant staff is correct and the service goes along the live music show. We enjoyed the tapas we've tried but I would not consider this a dinner menu. All the things were tasty, specially the cutlet kebab.
  • The worst crema catalana ever tasted
  • With friends I enjoyed an amazing last evening hangout at El Café de la Pedrera. Located outside GAUDI'S beautiful Casa Mila, La Pedrera. I highly recommend Juvé e Camps Milesimé, Cava €32...light, clean & crips! The service is excellent and the waiter's knowledge of local food & drink was just brilliant! It kind of reminded me a little of Knights Bridge. We all just loved it! Can't wait to come back again soon! 😊
  • Awesome location for a coffee and Guadi experience
