Where I ate in Barcelona

Happy New Year! Hope you’ve all had a lovely festive period of eating and drinking.

It’s time to share some of my culinary recommendations from my trip to Barcelona last year. Lively Barcelona offers a broad affray of attractions that consistently appeal to tourists- Sagrada Familia, Park Guell and Camp Nou. In addition, the city boasts a diverse culinary culture which makes a visit there essential for any foodie.

Here are two of the places I ate when I visited. We stayed outside of the city centre, which gave us the opportunity to see other neighbourhoods in Barcelona and experience the resident’s side of Barcelona.

Restaurant El Clot

This was a super cute restaurant that is ideal if you are staying in Clot (and worth coming to the neighbourhood if you’re not). It feels authentic and was bustling when we visited. Despite how busy it was, they still managed to get us a table. The mixed paella was delicious and the portion was just about right for two people. Also highly recommended are the prawns.

The one downside is that they wouldn’t serve us tap water, which was annoying. However, this is definitely worth a visit, especially if you want to mingle with locals.

Taverna Del Bisbe

Come for the beer, stay for the food! Located a few steps away from the Cathedral of Barcelona, this is a lovely venue to visit whilst out exploring, or to people-watch.

The paella was tasty and filling (yes paella again, but I do honestly love it!). The pints of Estrella are served in big tankards, and I liked the cosy atmosphere.

Address: Av. de la Catedral, 6, Ciutat Vella, 08002 Barcelona
