Barcelona could as well be named the world’s culinary capital. There is probably no other city in the Western Hemisphere that offers more gastronomic choice and quality. The best and freshest ingredients from the sea and gardens are paired with a tradition of perfection and creativity in food. A happy place!
In Barcelona, you will find many choices of venue types and I suggest you try going to several. From simple fresh market food stalls to rustic tapas-and-wine bars you can eat your way up to the very top of gastronomic Michelin-starred restaurants. The good thing is: They’re all amazing!
