People in Barcelona usually have their meals later
and their lunch hours are from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and
dinner from 9 p.m. to 11.30 p.m..
For fine Spanish tapas please go to La Cerveseria
Catalana at Rambla Catalunya, TapaTapa at Passeig
de Gracia or some of the small streets in the
Barri Gotic. Tapas is a traditional Spanish food but
is stil relatively new to Barcelona and is not considered
part of a proper meal. To enjoy good Spanish paella,
go to Elx at Maremagnum.
Some of the traditional Catalonia food includes butifarra
(a tasty sausage), squeixada (salad of preserved cod
with tomato, bell peppers and olives), escudella (traditional
soup) and suquet de peix (traditional fishermen’s
fish stew). You can find most of the Catalonia food
listed here in the restaurants menus.
To have a economical yet sumptous meal, keep a look
out for set lunch menus that are offered between 2
p.m. to 4.30 p.m.
Barcelona's famous seafood restaurant Botafumeiro
serves very good seafood but at very steep prices.
For something more economical, try some of the seafood
restaurants in Barceloneta.
Table wine are avaliable at very affordable prices
even at restaurants and bars. Do try the cava, the
Spanish equivalent of champagne as well as the Sangria,
another local favourite that is fruit punch mixed
