    Barcelona Pipa Club

    Plaça Reial, 3 pral, Barcelona, CT 08002 Spain
    2 reviews

    This intimate little venue on the Plaça Reial is one of Barcelona’s most idiosyncratic spaces. You almost have to play detective to find it – ring the buzzer and you’ll be admitted in covert silence. Inside, it has an inviting, if slightly beat-up, feel, with oak-panelled walls adorned with Sherlock Holmes and Dalí memorabilia. Back in the dark den of ...

    Quimet & Quimet

    Poeta Cabanyes, 25, Barcelona, CT 08004 Spain

    Paying a visit to this most hallowed temple of tapas is almost obligatory when in Barcelona. It’s standing room only at this tiny venue, but don’t let that put you off. Gourmet creations line the bar – just point to what you want and wait to be blown away (the salmon is especially good). After you’ve downed your fill, head ...

    2 reviews

    The dining room of Flamant is a pleasure in itself - all emerald green leather, white tablecloths, mirrors and wood paneling - and the lunch menu adds considerably to the contentment! The mid-week menu is served from 13:00 until 15:30, and if you don't have a reservation do arrive early. In the heart of the Eixample business district, this restaurant ...

    La Barca del Salamanca

    Moll del Gregal, 13, 08005 Barcelona, Spain
    1 review

    Go to La Barca del Salamanca with a serious appetite, and don't be rushed by the over-zealous yet very entertaining waiting staff (on a recent visit my waiter insisted I finish my Paella, and despite my being fit-to-burst he picked up my fork and fed me the last few bites to the amusement of my fellow diners!). The mid-week 3-course ...

    La Vinya del Senyor

    Plaza de Santa María, 5, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

    Holding in my view the most beautiful spot of any bar in the city of Barcelona, La Vinya del Senyor looks out onto the 14th-century Santa Maria del Mar church in the Born district. The menu is vast - including wines, cavas and tapas. I recommend the cavas (all of them!), the cheeses, and if not a table on the ...
