Barcelona is known to have the most amazing food and best tapas in the world! If you haven’t read my latest post on Tickets Bar you probably should go read it after this post. There are no limitations because Spain is pretty cheap when it comes to food and wine! What I really love about dining in Barcelona is all of the outdoor seating, perfect for those summer nights! Here is a quick guide on where to eat in Barcelona.

La Bouqueria Market

La Boqueria is a large public market in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona. The market has a great selection of good and fresh food. I suggest trying the eggs with baby squid at El Quim. You will find colorful sweets, spices and juices all over the market. I opted for the juices and it was so fresh and only 2 euros! Address: La Rambla, 91, 08001, Barcelona

I was seeing multiple photos on Instagram of the famous kronuts at Chok and had to try it! I’m a huge fan of the well known cronuts by Dominique Ansel in New York! The store is so cute with pastel colors and I loved the way the donuts were hanging off the walls. I wanted to try everything but only had the kronuts. Address: Carrer de Carme, 3Barcelona




Xurreria is one of the best churros in Barcelona. After visiting Madrid and having changed my mind about churros since I was never a fan, I was on a mission to eat all the churros I could while in Spain. Xurreria has multiple locations throughout Barcelona and this one is right outside Sagrada Familia which was convenient. The churro is pretty good and they have a few flavor options such as caramel, chocolate and cream. Address: Placa de la Sagrada Familia, 2608013 Barcelona


Ten’s Tapas Restaurant

Ten’s is a 2 michelin star restaurant. Every single dish was fresh and full of flavors. We came here for lunch and had a great time! The oysters were one of the favorites.

Cerveseria Catalana

Cerveseria Catalana is a locals favorite. A few friends recommended this restaurant so I knew I had to try it. We ordered a lot of dishes but a few that stood out was the razor clams and baguette sandwiches. You gotta have the patatas bravas too! They do not take reservations so go early for a shorter wait. I waited about 20 minutes around 4:30pm. Address: Career de Mallorca, 236 08008, Barcelona

La Mar Salada

La Mar Salada is located around Port Vell and is known for having delicious paella. You can’t leave Barcelona without having paella! We had it a few times and never got sick of it. I loved this seafood paella dish! Address: Passeig de Joan de Borbó, 58-59, 08003 Barcelona

    Isn’t the food in Barcelona amazing?! I loved La Boqueria from the colors to the food selection. I got to go at an off-peak time and truly enjoyed my experience there. I absolutely loved my meal at Vinitus and ended up eating there twice. It was nice to have the server remember you and give you great suggestions. I definitely miss my time in Europe (went for 40 days alone) but your pictures gave me great memories. Cheers.

    That donut display is to die for! Barcelona seems to be a real foodie city. I have visited Barcelona twice, both times with a school trip I was leading. Touring around the city with 90 hormonal 14 year-olds did not leave much room for trying out the local cuisine! I have to go back!
