Eating in Barcelona ...
Sometimes, my customers, previously at your trip to Barcelona, ask me:
" can you give us recomendations of good restaurants in the city?, please, not tourist...."
Really its a difficult question, tourist-not tourist... (Barcelona city, receive 8 millions visitors/year, for that, not tourist restaurants is difficult, but not impossible) , new or historical restaurant...., moderm or traditional cuisine.
I try to give you a little suggest about different category:
One of my favorite is "TaktikaBerri" in l'Eixample (city center)
other very popular, are "Ciudad Condal" and "Cerveceria catalana", just in downtown
In the Old town (Gothic Quarter) : "Sagardi" , close Sta Maria del Mar and Picasso Museum, or the big offer in el Born, when only walking across narrow streets, you'll find several small taverns where to eat a delicius tapas.
THE CLASSICS Rt.
"7 Portes" (like seven doors), probably one of best in Paellas and all rices. Old Harbor
"Botafumeiro", really expensive, but with the best seafood and shellfish of Barcelona, on top of Psg de Gràcia.
"Tenorio", in the most elegance street, beside to Gaudí buildings.
