17 "Spanish" Restaurants in Barcelona.
Uma is a less-known tasting menu restaurant, but a more relaxed and casual option at a lower price point.
You're going to want to take advantage of the Basque options while you're in Barcelona, and Taktika Berri is a good place to do it.
Although it can be gimmicky, Cal Pep is very good. You'll probably see a lot of tourists, but you'll be distracted enough by the good tapas to care.
A true local spot, Bar Ramon has unique tapas, old-school vibes, and rock and roll decor.
If you want to go all out, Enoteca is the place for it. The space is beautiful, the wine list (mostly Catalan) is long, and the seafood is excellent
Looking for a fancy meal? ABaC's 14 and 21-course Catalan-inspired tasting menus are excellent and worth the cost.
If you're looking for something fancy, Moments is an excellent option. It has a tasting menu, but you can go a la carte, as well.
Kaiku is one of few local joints that has beachside seating. The food is all delicious, but make sure to get at least one rice dish.
Can Recasens has some of the best cheeses and cured meets in the city. Plus, it's a little off the beaten path, so the tourist level will be minimal.
Cuines Santa Caterina is one of few restaurants open from lunch to dinner. When you don't want to think too much about your next meal, head here.
Another Barceloneta tapas spot. The speciality at La Cova Fumada is the bomba (a “potato bomb").
Barceloneta is home to some of the best tapas bars in the city, but Bar Electricitat still stands out. The space is dingy, and the food is excellent.
