Thank you for these recommendations, I hope I will get a chance to try them soon. I love Barcelona, even if you have an only half decent nose for a good restaurant, you will nearly always eat very well there. What a wonderful city!


I wish I´d have had this list when I was in Barcelona, last may.


We could have done with that tapas-bar recommendation last spring. We did arrive in Barcelona rather late, and searched in vain for an inviting-looking tapas bar before settling for something totally unremarkable.
A compulsory trip to La Boqueria is highly recommended - it's huge and perhaps touristy, but the choice of 'exotic' fruit and excellent seafish and their amazing offal-counter are not to be missed!!
We left Barcelona straight afterwards, and only passed through on our way back from El Bulli to the Airport - but I'll definitely take Aidan's list with me next time :)
PS Happy New Year, dear Passionate Cook!!!

I'd forgotten about this little series you're running.

I went to Barcelona a few years back but unfortunately didn't have the opportunity to taste any of the food :(


Did you try any of Oriol Balaguer's chcocolate? I am not a chocolate person but believe his truffles are to die for.
Have to agree about Rumblas and the seaside. Like the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The Boqueria in Rmblas is a must do.

Great post, Trig! Makes me want to visit Barcelona again...


Thanks for publishing my review, Johanna. It's been my pleasure to go out for dinner in Barcelona with quite a few food bloggers over the past year - most recently Su-Lin of Tamarind & Thyme last Sunday. If anyone is going to be in town over a weekend, don't hesitate to click "contact" on my blog and email me.


Can you believe it? I live two blocks away from Atica and it would never have occurred to me to go! I'm booking a table there next Friday.


heyy, if you want to taste the best Barcelona's food just visit , where you will find the best restaurants of Barcelona and you will be able to watch the prices, menus and to make a reservation in the place that you want!!
