Your Key To Barcelona, The Gastronomic Centre of the Mediterranean

Barcelona, as a Mediterranean city, is one of the most important cities in the world in terms of gastronomy. Known for its cosmopolitan nature, the mix of cultures makes his restaurant offer so attractive.  Catalonia, being its capital Barcelona, has been named  European Region of Gastronomy 2017. 

Here you will find some of my best choices for getting a touch of Barcelona representative cuisine : 

  • Spoonik, is one of the most innovative concepts, where lights, color, music, videomapping and art join the most creative Gastronomy. Chefs Jon Giraldo and Jaime Lieberman with their team of 20 people are creators of  Private chef experiences at the chef’s house. Wine tasting complete this amazing option. 
  • Windsor, essential place to taste Catalan haute cuisine in a sophisticated Modernist style space, with interior garden terrace. Beautiful quiet areas that are perfect for a meeting, incredible wine selection and an unbeatable service. 
  • B-24, situated at the Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I lobby, offers a creative tapas selection without forgetting the local touch, combined with live piano music during the afternoons and DJ’s at night in a large open space. 
  • Marea Alta, offers smoked and grilled fish in a high-rise space with 360-degree views at the Colon Building in Barcelona. It’s the ambitious project of renowned chef Enrique Valenti.  Its incomparable views of the city combined with the highest quality product and a entire floor below the restaurant dedicated to Cocktails & sangrias  gives a great added value to this place. 

The importance of daily contact with restaurants in Barcelona being a concierge is essential. Some of the best restaurants in the city need days in advance or even weeks to get a reservation so contacting a Les Clefs d’Or Concierge it will make your life much easier if you want to have some of those experiences 

It will be a great pleasure for me and the concierge team at the Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I Barcelona to welcome you to this unique city and assist you discovering some of the amazing gastronomic experiences that this city can offer you.

Christian Fons Head Concierge Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos

My first experience into the world of hospitality industry and my discovery of the Concierge role it was by chance. I graduated from the School of Tourism Institut Lluïsa Cura in Barcelona after choosing the degree of “Guide, Information and Tourist Assistance". My strengths were always the languages, geography and history and together my vocation for service always made me clear what I wanted to be, a Tourist Guide. What I really wanted was to create experiences and feelings in travellers in my city, Barcelona. The Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I gave me the opportunity to be part of one of the most iconic hotels in the Barcelona and to discover for the first time the figure of the "Concierge" so this changed my life completely. I started with a trainee program experiencing all the positions that surrounded that figure; as porter, bell boy and operator, so at the end of my trainee program I got the opportunity to be part of the Concierge Team as a Concierge. In 2013 I joined Las Llaves de Oro Españolas as a member and two years later I received with a great honor my golden keys. I participated in the organization of Assemblies and gala dinners of the delegation of Catalonia. In 2016 I was promoted to Head Concierge in the same hotel I started my career, the Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I with 28 years old. I continue serving at the same position today.
