There is a multitude of places to eat in La Boquería. The most famous by far is El Quim de la Boquería.

To beging with, we recommend going to Xampanyet (Carrer Montcada 22). Try a glass of their home made xampanyet (sparkling wine, 1,10€) or vermouth (1,30€). Their "berberechos" (cockles) are spectacular (5€ half serving).

Dinner at Port Olimpic:

Port Olimpic, Barcelona

Built as the hub for sailing events in the 1992 Olympic Games. Today, aside from being a marina, it has become a tourist and leisure centre of the Catalan capital. Here you can walk and eat along the beach. To eat, we recommend Bestial, part of well-known Barcelona chain Tragaluz. We like their creative Italian cuisine but especially the original style of this seaside ...

Bravas in El Tomás:

If you take the Tourist Bus, get off at the Sarrià stop. This neighbourhood, like Gracia, was an independent municipality before being annexed by Barcelona, though its pedestrian streets and traditional shops continue to give it a village "feel". Heading down its main drag Major de Sarrià, you'll come to the famous Bar Tomás (Carrer Major de Sarriá 49), which has the ...
