More then a bar, restaurant Bar Omar invites the diners to a short and flavoursome selection of dishes thought to share.
Bar Omar is located on the side of Avenida Diagonal that many visitors don’t get to explore (no Sagrada Familia or famous shopping). Restaurant Bar Omar can be found on the lively street Amigó 34, in the local neighbourhood Sant Gervasi in Barcelona.
When composing the menu owner and chef Omar Díaz dusted off Spanish classics, gave them a facelift and also added in a few international flavours plates, to mix up party.
La Mar de Brava – Bar Omar’s take on patatas Bravas, they kick it up a notch by preparing the sautéed tomato sauce with prawn heads. The aioli is golden with saffron and a hint of heat. AMAZING, totally on my top 5 of Bravas in Barcelona!
The selection is short with plates to share, and you know how I feel for short menu’s. Yes I love them, as the saying; less is more.
The locale of Bar Omar is small, modern and a simple design. Did I read somewhere someone comparing the restaurant interiors to IKEA? A bit harsh but not totally off, the dining area doesn’t have a cosy personal touch that we might look for sometimes.
But don’t get scared off do to the comment, because we are there for the food, right?
We visited Bar Omar on the weekend and the spot was lively with a good vibe. Many regulars chatting warmly with the staff. Our waiter recommended 3 plates/person. We ordered 7 dishes in total (dessert included), main part excellent, one that can go without mentioning.
Even tough weekend is when we tend to go out for a meal, I will enlighten you that supposedly Thursday night is the day of the week to go to Bar Omar. Thursday’s the chef serves up an tasting menu with what’s in season, 50€/person. If that’s a not a good reason to make Thursday into a “dine out night” as well I don’t know what is!
Bar Omar is perfect for an informal meal with friends and family.
To experience their Bravas!
