The original page of recommended Barcelona restaurants which we published on this website in 1998 was simply a short list of some of the author’s favourite places to eat in the city. Since then Barcelona has grown beyond recognition as a tourist destination and has seen a vast number of new restaurants and excellent tapas bars appearing on the culinary scene. Unfortunately, this has resulted in the appearance of too many tourist rip-off joints offering average food at high prices with poor service.
Barcelona Restaurants – Contents
For this latest selection of my favourite restaurants in Barcelona I’ve had to get rid of a few old favourites and have added some new places that I’ve only recently had the chance to try. It is not intended to be a definitive guide but simply the personal recommendations of the author. The list will continue to be updated after every visit to the city.
