One night we were looking to try out a new place for diner in Barcelona and it needed to be quite central. We heard about Nobook.
As the name suggests, you cannot make a reservation/booking, hence the name Nobook. You can really feel this place is different and has an identity of its own.
From the moment you enter, you see chairs hanging on the wall ready to be brought into effect for extra seating, orange-themed decor, open plan kitchen, but the best is the staff are dressed up in orange jumpsuits as if they were prisoners in a corrections facility.
A bit shocking, the colors and the outfits at first, you get used to it, especially the team is so welcoming and enjoying their own environment. The closest thing to a literal version of Orange is the New Black.
The cocktails here are very creative and well presented. Do try one or two throughout your meal.
Like the cocktails, the dishes are creative as well. They touch upon various cuisines from around the world and are great for sharing amongst each other.
Do check out what we ate.
Over and above the main menu, there a few surprise dishes that are served from off the menu so be sure to try those as well.
After a lovely meal of a variety of flavors and there was no dessert or coffee or coffe on offer because their cocktails are supposed to take care of your post meal cravings. The night we went there was a band and it kept the energy flowing throughout the night.
You’ll be walking away from Nobook with good vibes.
