Barcelona feels a bit surreal – appropriate, since Salvador Dali spent time here and Spanish Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí designed several of the city’s buildings. Stepping into Gaudí’s Church of the Sacred Family is a bit like falling through the looking glass - a journey that you can continue with a visit to Park Güell. Sip sangria at a sidewalk café in Las Ramblas while watching flamboyant street performers, then create your own moveable feast by floating from tapas bar to tapas bar.

Blavis is a small gastronomic corner where we propose to share tapas and platillos. On our board you will find tasty cuisine, elaborated with love and influenced by diverse cultures. We also offer you a selection of local wines to accompany the whole experience. We wait for you!
This is not like a restaurant experience I have ever had before. Very small cosy place with the chef/waiter explaining every single dish and making adjustments for my fussy partner where possible. Food was very good and the recommended wines were delicious. You must book or miss out .

I lived for several months in Buenos Aires, where there are many artisan beer bars. When I got to Barcelona I was missing them, so the Beerket came as the perfect solution. Its beer offering is amazing, the personal attention and service are also very welcoming and I highly recommend the cheese selection they have!

UMA offers only and exclusively a surprise tasting menu. Allergies and intolerances should be communicated at the time of booking. Otherwise we can not guarantee the required modifications. UMA can adapt your gastronomic proposal to vegetarians, fishermen and carnivores as long as they accept eggs and dairy products in their diet. Unfortunately we DO NOT have the resources to offer a proposal adapted to vegan diets. Punctuality is requested. The service will start once all the guests have arrived. The rest of the guests will be waiting for you.
The new location is larger than the old and the food is, if anything, better. The space is more modern/industrial but softened with nice furniture and some classical columns. Space for more people - estimate around 40 might be possible if the kitchen can cope.
There is no written menu - just a tasting experience and everyone starts to eat at the same time.... There were around 16 small courses... most of them excellent. Being Catalonia, there is a strong fish component dressed in contemporary culinary artistry - lovely to look at and delicious to eat. The wine "marriage" is very good - there's a knowledgeable sommelier - and quantities are not too large so you do not end up "over-alcoholised"! Excellent service from a troop of young ladies; the chef also came round to have a very brief chat. Prices for 2 with wine was around €250 which is pretty reasonable for a restaurant of this quality. This is not a restaurant for veggies, vegans or faddy eaters. Certain preferences can be catered for but, for instance, there is a shellfish component in at least 3 or 4 of the courses. Still on my favourite list...

I little hard to find but we're pleased we found it. The mozzarella roses starter was absolutely fantastic, and the main courses were as well. The place was very welcoming and the service was excellent.

Our fifth meal in Barcelona and by far the worst. Maybe better than the tourist traps but we four found each dish very very disappointing in quality, cooking (reheating micro wave visible from table) Dreadfully prepared sangria and brusk service made us leave as soon as possible. Many diners were from Far East and paid 30 Euros for the Entrecôte special of the day, but I cannot imagine what I saw presented was good value for money.
I would avoid if you can take your time to go further away from this area to where locals go for tapas.

Tiny tapas bar/ restaurant on the way from Montjuic Hill. Apart of few seats inside, also five small tables on the sidewalk.
Very friendly staff, with good English. The daily menu surprisingly good and varied. The meals are perfectly seasoned with spices, with some unusually compositions and tastes. Prices not low, but acceptable.

Found this place through Trip Advisor when looking for a nice place to go after a visit to Park Guell. Well thought out menu ( 3 different dishes to choose from) . Very simple and traditional cooking (the way I like it). Excellent house wine (one glass is included in the 3 course lunch for a tot of 12 euros!). If you come between 12.30 and 13.00 you wont have to wait for a table as they dont take Reservations. Good and friendly service! A special thanks for the fantastic desserts! After you are done eating, head down to the Sagrada Familia by foot, it is easy, you can see the Church from the restaurant. It is a nice walk to melt the food!

Our restaurant-atelier's specialty is the traditional pagès bread, filled with seasonal ingredients. You can also enjoy a variety of vegetarian, fish and meat starters.
The food was perfect. The staff was the nicest I've ever met in a restaurant. Definitely eat the special of a bread loaf with different fillings. The wine was good and I can't believe how cheap the price are. Nice décor and clean. I only have good things to say about this place. Stop Reading reviews now and go here!

specialty coffee shop where you can enjoy special toasted bread, sandwiches, yogurts, homemade cakes, smoothies and more. Find us, you will enjoy it.
If you’re into damn good coffee and the endless americanos just aren’t doing it for you, this is the place for you.
Incredibly welcoming, delicious coffee and perfectly made pour over. So good we did 2 rounds of chemex.
Pastries are also delicious and worth the stop alone.

Catalan cuisine madre with organic and localy-grown products. We emphasise on the "Mar i Muntanya" (sea and mountain) concept by developing a haut-cuisine menu that is served in an informal and welcoming atmosphere. The main beam of our gastronomic concept is sustainability; from the small, local producer to our policy of inclusive prices.
We had a great time dining here from start to finish. Every dish locally sourced and really delicious with the staff explaining each one of them thoroughly. A nice intimate setting and we were made to feel right at home with the friendly service. Couldn’t recommend enough.
