    Can Paixano

    15 reviews

    Can Paixano, often called "La Champagneria", is the most known Cava bar in the city and serves it's own refreshing bubbles. Located between the Born and Barceloneta districts, it is well-placed for an after-beach glass of fizz and a plate of Jamon or hot meat roll (drinks are not served at Can Paixano unless food is ordered - but prices ...

    Brunch and Cake

    American-style eggs benedict are on offer at Brunch and Cake and with a location that’s central and accessible, you can’t go wrong. Plus, finish off your meal with a cupcake, their other specialty. A nice break from tapas!

    Taller de Tapas - Carrer de Argenteria

    6 reviews

    This is the Taller de Tapas that's located down the old silversmith's street in the Born district. The Building containing this modern, comfortable and office worker-friendly Tapas place dates from the 16th Century and was once a Nun's Convent. It's a fun place to eat and an interesting place to watch people. In our case, there was a table full ...

    Barcelona Pipa Club

    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 ...

    For some old-world panache, you can’t beat 7 Portes. In fact, you’ll be in good company - former diners to have signed the guest book include Catalan artist Joan Miró, Lou Reed, Pelé, Placido Domingo, Catherine Deneuve and Gabriel García Márquez. The fare is traditional home-cooked Catalan, with an emphasis on simplicity and quality ingredients, and the paella served up ...

    Quimet & Quimet

    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 ...

    Pop along to Bun Bo for Vietnamese flavors beside the Cathedral of Barcelona, Santa Caterina Food Market and Plaça Catalunya. The 9,90 Euros 3-course lunch menu with drink is served from 13:00 to 16:30, Monday to Friday and includes fresh and crispy noodles, curries and my personal favorite: crab wraps with sweet chilli sauce. If you find yourself in the ...

    Dostrece Restaurant

    3 reviews

    Lunch at Dostrece is a feast of freshly cooked cafe-style plates with local produce, vegetarian options, fruity wine and yummy cakes (try the Pastel de Zanahoria - Carrot Cake - if it is on offer on that particular day). The restaurant is situated in the Raval district of the old city, beside La Rambla and close to La Boqueria market, ...

    El Corte Inglés

    6 reviews

    El Corte Ingles is a chain of hotels in Spain but I love the one here in Barcelona. It has 7 floors filled with all types of stuff from shoes, dresses, and the popular Spanish perfumes and colognes.

    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 ...

    Los Pergaminos

    2 reviews

    Los Pergaminos means 'the scrolls' in Spanish. We passed this restaurant many a time in our wanderings around Barcelona. One night we were craving paella but then it was too late to eat it since most places serve it at certain times. So we tried again the following night for a different place and found out that it was closed ...

    Marina Moncho's

    2 reviews

    Having undergone a recent refurbishment, Marina Moncho's is a pleasure to lunch on either the large covered terrace overlooking the Port Olímpic or indoors in the dining room. Both locations offer a Menú del Día Monday through to Friday from 12:00, although tourists be aware that you may have to ask for it specifically (I do still & I have ...

    La Candela

    2 reviews

    Located in the Born district of the city, conveniently close to Arc de Triomf, Parc de la Ciutadella, the Picasso Museum and the Santa Maria del Mar Church. La Candela serves a mid-week 3-course lunch for 13,90 Euros with several options including vegetarian dishes (not as common as you might think in Barcelona!) and local Catalan specialties. Enjoy the terrace ...

    Bar Calders

    Popular with the local Bohemia, it's possible to sip your Vermut or Cava alongside upcoming writers and artists at the tables of Bar Calders. With a colorfully-decorated interior, terrace tables and a full menu of popular tapas dishes - Calders is worth a wander out of the old city tourist haunts to see how the creative crowd while-away the hours ...

    La Vinya del Senyor

    2 reviews

    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 ...

    An amazing selection of about fifty little sandwiches and tapes to choose from. They had some really unique options including a mini oxtail burger and one with baby eels! It was great to be able to sample from the many different flavors each item ranged from about 1.6 to 4 Euro a piece. Unfortunately the portions were really small and ...

    Euskal Etxea

    Another one of my favorite Tapas joints. Everything from Iberico Ham to Seafood to choose the Pixos you want from a huge selection and make your own plates while drinking vino or beer. After they count the number of toothpicks and glasses of wine to bill you. A fun way to try lots of different tastes of delicious Spanish ...

    Quatre Gats (Els)

    7 reviews

    Dating back to 1897, this Barcelona tavern-cum-café is hallowed turf for any history buff worth their salt. A hothouse of Catalan Modernisme style, Els Quartre Gats is known as a favoured haunt of Picasso as a budding artist, and the place is decked out with artwork and modernista detail. The waiters have a tendency to be a little high-handed, and ...

    La Rambla may be a tourist trap, but it's worth braving the crowds here if only to slip into La Boqueria, one of Europe's most famous markets. Go hungry (and early) to nab one of the 14 stools at Pinotxo Bar, a pocket restaurant located just inside the market's main entrance. The restaurant is known for serving up flavorful tapas ...

    Al Passatore - Plà del Palau

    If you find yourself in the area stop by here for a pizza! They have a wide selection of individual pizzas that they make fresh to order and fire up in a brick oven. I sat in the back near to the oven and you can even watch them make your pizzas! For the more adventurous they even have a ...
