Eating and drinking was one of my favorite pastimes in Barcelona. The food is amazing and the wine and sangria are wonderful.
You could spend a lifetime trying every delicious restaurant in Barcelona, but my guess is that you don’t have quite that much vacation time. So to help you out I have a list of some of the best food Barcelona has to offer. Some of these places you’ll see on other lists or top restaurant articles but some are a little more local, but all are worth a taste.
Bar del Pla: Bar del Pla serves up a wonderful combination of traditional style tapas as well as what I’d called “new Spanish” style tapas.
Sagardi: Try the
Mosquito: Get something a little different than your regular Spanish tapas with Asian style tapas at Mosquito. Enjoy flavors from China, Vietnam, and Korea in small bitesized portions that mean you get to try a little bit of everything.
Leka: Leka is a restaurant you can feel good about both in their amazing food and how they source everything in the restaurant. The healthy and contemporary cuisine focuses on vegetables and sustainable and local meats.
El Nacional: If you are looking for variety go to El Nacional. This unique “gastronomic experience” includes four bar areas and four restaurant areas to sample the best food and drink from around the Iberian Peninsula.

Nomad Coffee: This might be the epitome of hipster coffee, but that’s how you know it’s good. Nomad prides itself on
Black Remedy: If you are looking for specialty coffees Black Remedy is your spot. From cold brew to
Bar El Born: Bar El Born sort of takes you back in time, it’s interior pays tribute to the fish shop that came before it with restored marble bar tops and an old school feel. Try vermuts from around Catalonia or any of the local beers and you’ll feel right at home.
Mr. Robinson: Their extensive cocktail menu is sure to intrigue and the travel themed decor will definitely inspire your wanderlust. Mr. Robinson’s drink menu takes inspiration from all around the world, sampling flavors from South America to Japan.
