Find a Barcelona restaurant
Type of place
Part French, part Spanish and part Mediterranean it's no wonder Catalan cuisine is so lip-smackingly good - and no wonder the city's residents dedicate so much time and money on food and eating out. Barcelona is a magnet for foodies thanks to the excellent quality of restaurants it has to offer and the profusion of Michelin-starred chefs plying their trade in this neck of the woods. There's a lot to be said for finding a cosy Catalan restaurant and trying local dishes like escudella and ollada (two tasty stews) as well as Catalan-style cod, best enjoyed with a sea breeze at the high-end joints around Port Olimpic. Spanish-style tapas bars are also in abundance, and you can also find Galician, Basque and Castilian cuisine on offer. Otherwise Barcelona has plenty of international restaurants to try out, from upmarket haunts dotted around the Eixample district, to the multitude of ethnic options in Raval and Gracia. Meanwhile Els Quatre Gats is the locale where Picasso first exhibited his artwork, and a little further up the Costa Brava lies El Bulli, voted the best restaurant in the world a zillion years running and currently being transformed into a food foundation. Epicureans can dine instead at Adria brothers' new venture Tickets Bar, whilst the Catalan culinary revolution they started can still be evidenced in eateries around the city...
