  4. Roca Bar. Paseo de Gracia - Mykel (20 Nov 2015 - 09:50)

    In my visits to Barcelona, I always must go to Roca Bar. Amazing food, service and lovely staff. I love the Mediterranean food and more in that restaurant. The best quality and the best presentations. Also the location of the restaurant, Paseo de Gracia, is amazing

  5. Eating at Santa Eulalia Champagne Bar - Anthony (17 Nov 2015 - 09:22)

    The best Iberian ham I have tasted in my life! In Champagne Bar located in Paseo de Gracia, I 100% recommend it and sure I come back.

  6. Barcelona - Wiremu (5 Mar 2014 - 09:45)

    I just returned from Barcelona last week. It is an amazing city with many places to eat. You should definitely go to Cafe Catalunya in the city centre. Their set menu changes each day and the food is great and affordable. You should also visit Tarragona, it is only an hour train ride away!

  7. ETAPES - Kimberly Taylor (27 Feb 2014 - 11:45)

    If you like to savor high quality Mediterranean dishes I strongly recommend ETAPES. With a privet salon and tables on the terrace, it’s perfect for both business dinners or families, couples and friend reunions

  8. Really cheap!!! - Elena (3 Oct 2013 - 09:00)

    Mi name is Elena, I'm Spanish and I've been cooking for years now!
    If you want to taste the real Spanish food, the real Paella, the "black rice"/Fideuá, the tapas without paying a fortune for something that is not worth it, please contact me.
    For only 12 €/pax I prepare a nice Spanish meal at home every weekend (all inclusive: starters, main course, bread, wine or sangría, desert and coffee!). I live in the Eixample district, close to Paseo de Gracia
    I also speak French.
    Do not hesitate to contact me!!



  9. Amazing meat - Erik (8 Jul 2013 - 14:00)

    What a good place to travel, Barcelona is an amazing city with all you need to have a perfect trip, party, restaurants, and in my opinion the best one is La Tramoia restaurant!

  10. Great restaurant Gran Cafè! - Mike J. (8 May 2013 - 08:30)

    Hi, I'm Mike from Sweden, I was last week in Barcelona for holidays.

    What a great weather in Barcelona! It's amazing!

    I went with my family to Gran Cafè, a really good restaurant, the food and service was so good... 3 days in this city have been too short!

  11. le bar à tapas incontournable , Bodega Biarritz 1881 - stéphanie (30 Mar 2013 - 05:30)

    sans doute le meilleur bar à tapas ,des tapas chaudes et servis à la seconde , tout est fait maison et devant vous , , le defaut c'est que c'est petit , mais justement c'est tout le charme du lieu ,
    à ne pas manquer :
    calle vidre numéro 8.à coté de la plaça Real .

  12. Cera 23, best dinner I had on my holidays - Simon Dell (19 Mar 2013 - 08:45)

    It is called Cera 23, you'll find it in the Raval neighbourhood, 10 min from Las Ramblas.

    Two tips: try the volcano of black rice, enjoy their blackberry mojito.

    Amazingly friendly staff who speaks fluent English. Couldn't really ask for more.

    Take my advice... just go there

  13. Places to absolutely AVOID - Food served = poison - Michael Constable (5 Mar 2013 - 07:45)

    If you visit Barcelona and get around the famous Gaudi's church called Sagrada Familia, it is recommended for your health and safety to avoid eating or drinking at the nearby restaurants called Picasso, Trabucaire and Baviera all owned by the same owner. The food served is not fresh and comes from frozen packages, cooked and left in a fridge for days until someone orders and simply get placed in a micro wave. Tapas are made of left overs from other customers plates and all this at a very high price aimed to rip off tourists.
    It is highly recommended to avoid those places.

  14. Eating out - times - Stephy (28 Feb 2013 - 09:30)

    In Barcelona lunch is served from 1:30pm until 4pm and dinner from 9pm to 11pm.

    Is this true of all places? We are planning on coming for a long weekend - will we struggle to find places to eat on a Sunday/Monday?
    Very worried

  15. Calçotada!! - Joel (27 Feb 2013 - 08:30)

    Why are people in Barcelona so crazy about getting together and eating calçots, which are really nothing more than scorched green onions? Discover it at www.canmanel.es

  16. bar à tapas bodega biarritz a barcelona - stef (27 Feb 2013 - 08:30)

  20. pour les tapas - gvictoruio (13 Nov 2012 - 09:15)

    même si les tapas ne sont pas d'origines catalanes, Barcelone est une bonne ville pour les découvrir. plein de bonnes petites adresses!!

  21. bar a tapas en barrio gotico "Bodega Biarritz 1881" - emmanuel (8 Sep 2012 - 14:15)

    c'est un petit bar à taps avec des tapas de reves , vraiment si vous venez à barcelone ne manquez pas le rendez vous de ce bar , ça se trouve , metro LICEU , aller à la plaça Reial , (tout le monde connait , c'est un place touristique et très cher ) mais juste à coté une rue qui s'appelle "Vidre" , numéro 8 , vraiment passez , si pas de place , c'est normal , on boit un verre dehors en toute convivialité , puis dès qu'il y a de la place on y entre , et là on comprend que ça valais le cout d'attendre .à ne pas manquer .

  22. Papa Serra cooking classes and clandestine dining - Erwin (5 Sep 2012 - 09:30)

    Simply memorable experience. I found Papa Serra after looking for a cooking class in Barcelona - the class was amazing and we learnt to cook some amazing food with the chef.

    Then he told us about a restaurant he had started and after tasting the food during the class, my wife and I said yes immediately and reserved a seat for the following night.

    We were not disappointed. The atmosphere, food, wine and service was just outstanding. We tried about 10 dishes as part of a fixed menu matched with wine for a very reasonable €70.

    There were at least 10 dishes - each as delicious as the last and flavours that were just so fresh and balanced. I remember the dessert expecially - a chocolate and smoked paprika tart - wow. And then an almond soup with shaved frozen grapes. And something with bee pollen and wild thyme. Still thinking about it : )

    This is Spanish food but so different from what you will find on Las Ramblas! A brilliant experience and one we will be back for next time we are in Barcelona!

  23. bodega biarritz 1881 - emmanuel (28 Aug 2012 - 09:00)

    bonjour ,
    un bar à tapas à couper le souffle , calle vidre /numéro 8 , Bodega 1881 , c'est du top , c'est bon , c'est chaleureux , c'est vraiment gouteux et l'ambiance géniale , juste un défaut , c'est fermé le jour , ouvert juste le soir . mais vraimnt à ne pas manquer , si ça manque de place , ne pas hésiter à boire un verre en attendant , ceux qui partent ont tort .

  24. on se régale partout - btat (15 Jul 2012 - 11:00)

    Une superbe ville pour ses restaurants: la cuisine catalane est de grande qualité! Cherchez les bonnes adresses car cela vaut vraiment la peine.

  25. Las mejores hamburguesas! - Janina (4 Jul 2012 - 09:00)

    Una de las mejores experiencias de hamburguesa que he tenido ha sido en el 7Sins Bar de cale Muntaner.
    Hacen unas hamburguesas excepcionales y saburosas... El pan esta buenísimo y son muy grandes!!!
    Muy Muy buenas!!

  26. ristorante con buon rapporto qualitàprezzo - giuseppe mancini (11 Jun 2012 - 09:45)

    (Maquinista 17; Tel. 933193064).

  27. Restaurant - Mireille de la région provence - côte d'azur (28 Mar 2012 - 09:45)

    Restaurant le Casanova au n° 46 de la rue du même nom : situé à proximité de l'auberge de jeunesse. Accueil très chaleureux avec le patron qui parle français, la cuisine est faite par Madame avec les produits frais du marché : un menu à 9,50 €, une carte avec par exemple assiette de poissons grillés à 12 €, prix imbattables avec qualité et quantité, sans parler de la sangria..... hummmm

  28. restaurant Casanova 46 (46 rue casanova) - Jean Michel pascale/ région parisienne (12 Mar 2012 - 09:30)

    Je conseille le restaurant au 46 rue de casanova, le patron parle très bien le français et est fort sympathique . Le menu à 9,50 euros tout compris est bon et varié (entrée+ plat +dessert+boisson+café+ pain). Tout est maison et est bien cuisiné, il n'y a pas de surprise.
    Nous avons pris plaisir à y venir manger tous les soirs après notre journée de visite .

  29. ristorante " la Paradita" - passatge simon 18 Barcellona - enzo (22 Feb 2012 - 09:00)

  32. donde cenar/comer en barcelona. Where to eat/ have dinner in Barcelona - dAvid (10 Dec 2011 - 07:45)

    últimamente he estado buscando algún sitio donde poder comer comida sana a buen precio, no es que me haya hecho vegetariano pero me intereso un poco mas por lo que como y además estaba buscando un lugar con sabores exóticos.
    En el barrio de Gracia, en Torrent de L'olla encontré el otro dia un sitio así:
    El concepto me gusta, mesas compartidas, autoservicio y precios asequibles. Todo esto claro para lo mas importante, comida saludable y sabrosa. Eso si...no hay una gran carta donde elegir, pero lo que probé me gustó mucho...así que no dudo en recomendarlo. un saludo y bon profit,
    Lately I've been searching for a place to eat healthy food at a good price, is not that I've become vegetarian but as I'm getting older I pay more attention to what I eat. I was also looking for a place with exotic flavours and at the neightbourhood of Gracia I found the other day a place like this:
    I like the concept, sharing the table, selfservice, good prices. And the most important thing healthy and tasteful food. I have to say that they don't have a big menu, not many things to choose but what I tried was delightful. So I recommend it with no doubt. Bon profit ¡¡

  33. Good restaurant - Alisha (31 Aug 2011 - 09:45)

    Vintage Restaurant in Barcelona has an exquisite and elaborate menu of original dishes and desserts complete with an excellent range of wines.
    Nice place, good service and good prices.

  34. mangiare a barcellona - yuri (18 Aug 2011 - 00:45)

    consiglio vivamente la fonda, un ristorante su una traversa delle ramblas, il prezzo e' onestissimo e si mangia da dio.. ottima la paella, le sangria e anche il vino della casa.la fila e' lunga specialmente dopo le 21, ma scorre bene, e ne vale la pena..

  35. nouvelle cuisine - fred (13 Jul 2011 - 23:15)

    d'abord la nouvelle cuisine puis la cuisine catalane qui offre plein de petits plats de derrière les fagots.. je me souviens par exemple des calcots: super...

  36. Go to Gresca - May be the best non Michellin Restaurant in the world! - Morten (22 Jun 2011 - 10:15)

    One of the best restaurants in spain... no doubt!!! I am very kean on high level "Michellin"-food. Gresca has no star... yet. But flavour and technic is amazing, service is great and the prizes unbelievable. I've done two tasting menus and a lot of other orders and nothing is questionable - everything is spot on. Check out Raphaels amazing cooking skills for yourselfs...


    The restaurant is on Provenca 230.

  37. nouvelle cuisine - miam (3 Jun 2011 - 16:09)
