At Can Marlau we are a gastronomic restaurant located in Barcelona, where passion for cooking mixes with tradition and culinary excellence. Our history goes back to years of experience and learning in some of the best restaurants in the world.

Our founder, Ferran Soler Ferrer, began his career in the world of hospitality at CETT, and since then he has taken his talent to cities such as London and Paris. His passion for authentic and quality cuisine led him to delve into the world of Catalan gastronomy, working in renowned establishments such as El Bulli and El Celler de Can Roca.

In October 2022, Can Marlau opened its doors as Ferran Soler's first own restaurant.

Here, we combine the knowledge we have acquired over the years with our vision of a Catalan home-style cuisine and refined tapas. Our goal is to offer a unique culinary experience, where product quality and culinary technique merge to create unforgettable dishes.

Our menu reflects a passion for authentic flavors and seasonal ingredients. From our exquisite breakfast forks to our spoon dishes and our creative tapas, each creation is designed to delight diners and awaken their senses.

Our team is committed to providing you with exceptional service, where every detail counts to make your visit memorable.
