Barcelona Food


Well known for being a food paradise, Barcelona provides traditional Spanish food as well as its own unique Catolonia food.

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 with wine and sometimes brandy.
