Barcelona restaurants and bars

Barcelona has a huge variety of bars and restaurants, with prices to match all budgets. Restaurants are required to offer a fixed price menu del día, which offer excellent value on for a smaller choice items than the main menu.

The price, including bread, wine and dessert or coffee is often as low as €6. Recommended are botifarras, a Catalan sausage, and pa amb tomaquet - quite simply bread rubbed with overripe tomato, olive oil and salt; it is much nicer than it sounds.

Also be sure to sample Cava, Catalunya's answer to Champagne. Cava is available by the glass in many establishments and at a much more reasonable price than its French cousin.

If you are remotely interested in seafood, head for the district of La Barceloneta - fish restaurants stand side by side, and are a good place to sample Paella on a Sunday lunchtime, although you may have to wait for a table.

For an authoritative guide to Barcelona restaurants see Craig Allen's while if you want to create some of Catalunya's recipes for yourself when back home you cannot go wrong with Colman Andrews' Both are available from

In addition to the more traditional Barcelona restaurants serving Catalan cuisine there are now many types of regional and international cuisine available.

Basque cooking is highly regarded throughout Spain, as is Galician cooking, which often features octopus. Other restaurant types include Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, middle eastern and Indian in addition to the ubiquitous burger bars.
