Our Barcelona adventure and other travel stories

Restaurants, restaurants, restaurants

It is about time to mention a few more restaurants where we had really good food. Two of them even have a more local flair as they are not overrun by tourists.

Arcano, Carrer dels Mercaders 10, 9, 08003 Barcelona

  • The restaurant is located in a 17th century stable and has a very cosy atmosphere with its catacomb style rooms. It is in the middle of the chic Born neighbourhood.
  • They serve excellent meat dishes, so vegetarians will not find a large choice here.
  • Location: 10 / Food: 10 / Price: €€€


La Flauta 2, Carrer de Balmes, 164, 08008 Barcelona

  • This restaurant can be found in the Eixample neighbourhood. In 2011/2012 I lived around the corner and it was one of our favourite spots. It is just one train stop away from Plaza Catalunya. You will find a lot of Catalans coming here and thus it does not feel too overrun with tourists. The restaurant is large but still has a cozy atmosphere as it does not get too loud even when it is crowded.
  • The restaurant serves very delicious tapas. The Flautas (little baguettes) and the variety of Montaditos are fantastic. Try the huevos cabreros!
  • Location: 8 / Food: 10 / Price: €€


Bitácora Poble Nou, Plaça de la Unió, 24, 08005 Barcelona

  • This local tapas bar in the Poble Nou Neighbourhood we discovered by coincidence. They have a (heated) terrace. The service is really friendly, the prices are reasonable for the great quality they serve.
  • The serve fantastic tapas. Try out the Calamares!
  • Location: 8 / Food: 10 / Price: €€
