THE HISTORY

The chronology of a family, their cuisine and their gastronomic project

Cal Blay history is the one with a trajectory that was born more than thirty years ago but it still maintains today, intact, the illusion to innovate, serve and satisfy the clients through the gastronomy. With gastronomic roots based on traditional Catalan cuisine, for more than three decades we have opened new horizons, betting not only on experimentation or creativity in our dishes, but also by the multitude of ways to offer them, transforming that humble and small family restaurant opened in 1982 in a gastronomic company with a catering service for weddings, events and wine tourism activities.
