Barceloneta

"It would be a shame to visit Barcelona without indulging in paella and copious amounts of Spanish tapas. While both foods are often made with fish and meat, you vegan lot will be happy to hear that Barceloneta has created meat and dairy-free versions of Spain’s most beloved dishes"

PerBacco!

"An intimate Italian where you can watch your food being prepared right in front of you"

Federal Café

"Open all day long, this cozy and laidback 3-storey corner spot offers great breakfast and brunch. Also have a simple, but excellent international menu prepared with good local produce. The rooftop terrace is wonderful"

Paco Meralgo

"The tapas menu may look pretty standard, but it's the quality that sets Paco Meralgo apart. It’s small, serves excellent quality food and is always busy - one of the best tapas bars in the city. Expect to pay a little more than usual for your tapas – but it’s worth it.

Bormuth

"If you're looking for a great place to eat in the Born then head to Bormuth! A variety of tapas, a warm atmosphere and quality service await you!"

Llamber

"A hip, New York style gastro tapas bar in the heart of the Born neighbourhood. The restaurant prides itself on quality, fresh food from the market as well as an incredible wine list with a whopping 30 wines by the glass"

Mercat de Santa Caterina

"Come shopping for fresh Spanish ingredients at this extraordinary produce market, designed by Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue"

La Pepita

"Casual tapas joint with a cozy atmosphere. Some of the best tapas you will have!!"

Bo de B

"It’s a rare occasion when there isn’t a line snaking out from the takeaway window at this tiny sandwich shop. Here, simple, fresh baguettes are filled with grilled chicken, beef, tuna, salmon or tortilla, and topped with all the fresh veggies and feta you want, all for just €3-€5. Look for a spot across the street on the steps of Barcelona’s main post office - an unexpectedly majestic backdrop for such a casual meal"

El Pachuco

"Many spots in El Raval are a squeeze and this one’s no exception. With only two tables, most clients here find themselves sharing tables, battling for bar/ledge space, or waiting outside for others to finish up. However, good food comes to those who wait. All the Mexican street food staples washed down with strong cocktails or beer"

Bunkers del Carmel

"These secluded and abandoned anti-aircraft defences have become one the most scenic viewpoints in Barcelona. Today, the bunkers are said to be one of Barcelona’s best-kept secrets, although they are becoming an increasingly popular spot to visit. Besides their fascinating history, the best reason to visit the bunkers is the crazy panoramic views of the city.

Mosquito

"Chinese dumplings and artisan beers. Maybe you're not familiar with the concept of Dim Sum, but neither are the Catalans here! They give it a twist of their own by calling it Asian tapas. However you want to call it, if you are craving Asian comfort food Mosquito is definitely the place to be. It's a tiny bar in the middle of the Born neighbourhood – don’t expect any fancy decorations. Squeeze into one of the wooden tables and wait for the food to amaze you"

LeccaBaffi

"A small deli, where you can buy all the best Italian produce, think cheeses and sausages to pastas, high-end vinegars and sauces. Or take a seat at the one of the small deli tables or restaurant next door and enjoy some of the best home-cooked Italian"

l'Antic théatre

"Hard to find and impossible to forget. Café by day, bar by night, and all round cultural centre: the Antic Theatre always has something going on. There is 0 chance that you'll come across this place by chance. Enter through the small door, up some stairs and you’ll come across the charming courtyard. Settle in with cheap beers, live performances and art shows"

Plaça del Sol

"Like the whole district of Gracia, Placa del Sol is less known by tourists, so if you would like to escape the crowds and feel like a local, this probably is the place to go to. Grab a beer, take a seat and soak up the magical atmosphere"

Sensi Gourmet Tapas

"So much more than your average tapas restaurant, Gourment Tapas by Sensi has become a Barcelona institution. Come through for a creative twist on traditional Spanish cuisine"
