Originally called “Cafè de les 7 Portes“, this establishment opened in 1836. Today is the most classic of Barcelona’s eating-places.
This is certainly the city’s most famous paella, which is always perfect. Try also seafood and rice dishes prepared in traditional way like Fideuà with prawns, Barcelona rice with ham and cheese, assorted grilled inshore fish or the Zarzuela with lobster…
With its hanging disco ball, plush leather seats and wooden tables, many Ginger fans have coined this trendy wine and cocktail bar as an ‘airport lounge’. It is however, rather known for it’s innovative cocktails, wide selection of amazing wine and high quality tapas. This is a Barcelona gem, ideal for weekend adventures, intimate drinks and lively evenings on the town. Ginger is nestled behind Plaza Sant Jaume, in Plaza San Jus a little hard to find if you don’t know where to look, but once you stumble upon it you’ll be sure to mark the spot; if you’re up for dinner after a few drinks, check out Pla restaurant which is right around the corner.
Lined from floor to ceiling with wines and spirits from across the globe, this lively bodega is justly famed for its unique and exquisite montaditosmodelled from wicked combinations of salmon with truffled honey, tuna dotted with caviar and balsamic syrup, and plates of pungent cheeses served with transparent fruit jelly, glazed chestnuts and pickles arranged like artworks. And, there’s mojama (salt-cured, air-dried tuna), canned seafood and croquetas. Can’t make up your mind? Ask the maestro behind the bar to assemble you a plate. Intense flavours create an unforgettable experience. Don’t expect fried fish, or fried anything. Blonde, brown and black beers on tap. They serve their own-label Belgian beer, excellent wines and cavas. Standing room only.
Bullfighting is just about over in Catalonia. The current season will be the very last. Then, finally, this quirky throwback will become more of a museum than it already is, with its very traditional offerings served in faded 1960s splendour. Hidden along a side street, this cheap and cheerful spot is replete with old photos, posters, bulls’ heads and Cordobes hats on the peeling walls of connected dining rooms. Tapas, including rabo de toro (bull’s tail, but usually actually oxtail, stew) and full meals served with carafes of house red and sangría. Just off the Ramblas. Very family friendly. Open Sunday evenings. Don’t forget your sombrero. ¡Olé!
Given that it’s such a short stroll from the Sagrada Família church, and the quality of the food, I’m always surprised there aren’t more tourists here. Reasonably priced and with very friendly service, it has a terrace usually filled with families, but there’s plenty of room inside. You’ll find a chilled family atmosphere. Try their delicious homemade croquetas, probably the best in the city: mushroom, foie gras, chicken, cheese and vegetable. Extensive range of very fresh tapas, including stuffed eggs, jacket potatoes filled with tuna and topped with cheese, baby clams,navajas (razor clams), salpicón de marisco (seafood salad), chocos (strips of squid in oil and parsley), sausages and cold meats.

Ferran and Albert Adrià’s most recent project requires diners to reserve online 60 days in advance to win the chance to taste tapas from the minds behind elBulli. Lucky guests sample from an extensive and intricate menu including sangria-infused peaches and mini airbags stuffed with liquid manchego, and the waiters are quick to provide knowledgeable guidance. The brothers have revamped their adjacent cocktail bar, 41 Degrees, to present a 41-course food “experience.” Together, the two venues are the hottest and most difficult seats to get in town.
Saturday, 4.20pm, the lunchtime rush has died down. Most local customers
are taking coffee and *licors*. “Paella for Pablo,” the call goes out. And,
at 4.23pm Pablo has his paella, done the way he wants it – with a whole *
butifarra *(sausage) on the side. This very popular, well-organised, local
standby, its pavement tables set to catch the best of the afternoon
sunshine, is always busy. For good reason – they serve a reliably good
range of tapas including *pescadito frito *(whitebait) *gambas
rebozadas *(prawns in a light batter), mussels, sausages and the whole kaboodle. Vegetarians
will be pleased to note that they serve a wonderful vegetable paella with
goat’s cheese. The terrace is a good spot in the evening.
