Barcelona Restaurants and Food

Barcelona is the capital of Spanish and Catalan cuisine. There are numerous cafes, Tapas Bar and quality restaurants offering light meals, snacks, rich wines, great sauces and Spanish & Catalan cuisine as well as fine fish and sea food of the Mediterranean. Barcelona also offers world cuisine such as Mediterranean, Japanese, Italian, French, Turkish, Indian, Chinese, Portuguese and Thai food. Sea food at the luxury restaurants is also recommended.

Port Vell, Port Olímpic, La Ribera district, Paseo del Born, the Eixample region, the Grŕcia district, the uptown part of Diagonal and Tibidabo region are the most popular spots to dine & wine in Barcelona.

Having a breakfast twice is very common in Spain as in Barcelona. After the first one at 7-8 a.m., second breakfast starts at 10-11 a.m. People mostly prefer to dine at 10 p.m. at the Tapas Bars.

Catalan cuisine combines grains, fresh vegetables and cheeses, olive oil meat sauces, as in the popular dish "Pa amb Tomŕquet".

Tortilla a la espanola (a favorite omelet with potato) with juice and coffee is a popular breakfast menu.


Spanish style omelet with potato, grilled green pepper, salmon fish and shrimp on the fried bread, foamy beer and white wine is the one the most preferred dish to try in Barcelona. Paella is one of the most obvious food to eat in Barcelona. Paella originates from the restaurants in the city and is probably the best known dish to come from Spain. It’s made from short grain rice and can include a range of seafood or meat, as well as vegetables such as peas and peppers.

If you want to have sea food, fish restaurants in Barceloneta and the Olympic Port is a must visit and taste. Cal Pep is one of the best and most popular tapas restaurant in Barceloneta. Agua in Villa Olimpica is another popular one at the beach front.

The upscale neighborhood of Gracia is popular for its bar and saloon as well as the Korean and Near Eastern dishes.


Los Caracoles in Barrí Gňtic is Barcelona's most famous restaurant. Traditional Catalan dishes worth tasting. Casa Leopoldo in La Rambla is another great place to dine.

There’s plenty of beverages to choose from which have a home in Barcelona. Spain’s wine industry would most definitely be lacking without Barcelona’s selection of white, sweet rose and red wines, the latter which are fruity, medium-bodied an intensely aromatic.
