After the reopening of the "Majestic Bar" which marked the conclusion of the comprehensive refurbishment of the Majestic hotel now a Sunday afternoon gastronomic offering has been launched,  The Majestic Brunch. Open to hotel guests and the general public, anyone in fact looking for a relaxed but refined brunch offering unlike any other in Barcelona right now.

The newly redecorated Majestic Hotel restaurant is located on the first floor of the hotel looking over the internal patio which will have outdoor tables provided later in the year. The neoclassical décor is bright and pleasant, its walls are clad with timber and mirrored panels with generous space provided between the tables. The gastronomic offering is a buffet style brunch created by Nandu Jubany , divided into three distinct sections located at different corners of the dining room, the food is beautifully displayed within these subspaces which are entirely covered with a square grid like arrangement of mirrors. One corner featuring cold cuts, breads (baked by Triticum), sea food and shell fish, the other serving hot foods which vary every weekend and finally the desert section with its array of tempting cakes, tarts and other sweets. Guests can choose at their leisure, this is Sunday afternoon after all. As well as the typical beverages there is a “Moët & Chandon” champagne bar (unique in Barcelona) as well as a barman who will prepare a Bloody Mary or any other cocktail to accompany the brunch.


    And given that it’s the weekend The Majestic Brunch has prepared a special buffet for children where they can find the kind of dishes guaranteed to appeal to the smaller members of the family.


    After nearly a century in operation (since 1918), the Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona is now a classic amongst the city’s top hotels, a recognized social meeting point on Barcelona's Paseo de Gracia. Famous guests included film stars, artists, politicians, sports figures and prestigious businessmen have passed through here enjoying the facilities, the professionalism of a discreet and efficient team. The hotel is part of the Majestic Hotel Group, owned by the Soldevila family.
