The Goliards we like good meals and drinks and we make a profession of this
In the village of Gràcia since 2001


Goliard opened its doors on the Day of Saint Jordi, 23 April, 2001, in a former dairy in the Gràcia neighbourhood of Barcelona.  The restaurant has two dinning spaces, the previous storefront and the barn of the former establishment, connected by an interior patio that is home to a vibrant fig tree.

The motivation behind Goliard has always been to provide a moment where guests can enjoy the company of those they have chosen to be with —partners, family or friends— while experiencing the pleasures of our kitchen.

Over these years, where big names have emerged in the world of gastronomy, contrasting with the major brands and chains that have opened eating places all over the city, our offer continues to be local products, quality, personal service, innovation, and tranquillity. The calm of slow cooking, well-prepared meals and the satisfaction of doing what we enjoy.

The dishes we offer are based on traditional Catalan cuisine in a renewed and contemporary form that extends to the world of international gastronomy. At Goliard our interest and passion for cooking and fresh ingredients directly from the earth inspire us to enlarge our vision, to discover new products, try new techniques and offer dishes from other worlds adapted to our taste.

At Goliard we work with a team of people where each one does their part to give the restaurant the unique character that defines us. What we have in common is our love for good food and good wine. We have turned this passion into our profession that we delight in sharing with our customers.

Our name clearly describes our restaurant. Goliards were students in the first universities, monks who exchanged their habits for a profession in the liberal arts. Culture and the good life became their leitmotif.  The most well known song and poem collection of the Goliards is “Carmina Burana” from the centre of Europe and closer to home “Cançoneret de Ripoll”, a vast collection of poems from many origins.
