Eating through Barcelona one tapas at a time

Barcelona, Spain, is a city filled with rich culture and history.

Whether you are walking through the winding streets of the Gothic Quarter or enjoying the unique architecture of Antoni Gaudí, Barcelona is a city of pure beauty.

And that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes but mostly through its food, which serves as art, lifestyle and hobby in Barcelona’s restaurant scene.

If you’re a “foodie” like me, this city encompasses everything you could want, and here are some of the best places to experience that euphoria:

1. Sensi Bistro

Sensi Bistro is a small restaurant with unforgettable flavors and top-notch experience. Let the chef choose the tapas for you and sit back and relax while each dish gets better and better. But make sure to request the tuna tataki.

  1. Flax & Kale

A relatively healthy place, Flax & Kale offers mostly green dishes with tons of flavor. Enjoy its ravishing rooftop while sipping a refreshing Spanish Shandy, a half beer-half lemonade cocktail.

  1. De Greco

Looking to eat like a celebrity, literally? Jay Z and Beyonce’s favorite restaurant in Barcelona is Da Greco. An Italian food lover’s dream, this restaurant is a high-end Italian restaurant where the truffle ravioli is dreamy and the lasagna is mouthwatering.

  1. Kino Café

A restaurant off the beaten path, Kino offers a unique atmosphere with delicious tapas to go along with it. Located in El Ravel, this restaurant overlooks a skate park and has the best patatas bravas in Barcelona.

         5. Surf House

Located in Barceloneta Beach, Surf House combines excellent food with enjoyable activities for the beach. With every meal, Surf House gives you a complementary paddleboard to explore the deep blue waters of Barcelona.

  1. La Luna

La Luna offers tapas galore, with an extensive traditional tapas menu. Step back in time by eating in an old horse stable from the Roman times, and enjoy this chic restaurant in the El Born district.


  1. Bo De Be

Bo de Be is a hole-in-the-wall sandwich shop that offers five-euro sandwiches with fresh ingredients and unforgettable tastes. An only three-table restaurant makes this spot a perfect place for a to-go sandwich that will change your life.

  1. Brunch and Cake

This brunch spot is one of the most famous restaurants for study abroad students. Brunch and Cake offers art-like meals that are extravagant and beautifully colored but also taste amazing. Try the super nacho sandwich or the perfectly crafted acai bowls.
