If you're planning a vacation to enchanting Barcelona, Spain, then you're probably excited to explore this great city's rich history, see the one-of-a-kind architectural masterpieces for yourself and enjoy all of the excellent water activities on the awe-inspiring Mediterranean Sea. You may certainly fill your days with exciting sightseeing tours and your nights experiencing the legendary nightlife, but you're also going to want to sample the city's incredible cuisine in between all of those awesome adventures. Barcelona is home to some of the world's top chefs and most extraordinary restaurants, and you won't want to miss out on the goodness. You might not be able to try all of the restaurants in Barcelona, but you should plan to treat yourself to these popular eateries that are currently trending as the top-rated restaurants in the entire city.
Chef Iker Erauzkin brings forth his creative genius through gourmet meals that are often offered in 10 to 12 courses that feature elaborate dishes. Because the chef's creations depend upon his mood and the freshest ingredients that are currently available, the menu is forever changing. What you can always be sure of is that your meal will be superb, and it will be served to you by the chef's wife. Only 12 people at a time are allowed to dine in the restaurant, which is located in the neighborhood of Sants, and it's considered an intimate and unique experience that is not for children.
You'll find this treasure tucked away in the neighborhood of Gracia, and there's space for no more than 15 diners at one time. Chef Marc Casadument offers a fresh menu that's based on Catalan and Basque roots with some wonderful Asian and Latin American influences. The food is superb, and you'll be served your dinner to the sounds of jazz music in a relaxing, intimate lounge. A variety of tapas top the menu, and you'll also discover such favorite dishes as prawn ceviche, duck with roasted red peppers and pork tacos.
This popular restaurant is located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, and it's considered one of the best places for a romantic dinner in Barcelona. Chef Mikel Peinador prepares exquisite dishes with the freshest ingredients of the day, and you'll be tempted by such menu items as steak tartar, duck cannelloni, marinated salmon and boneless oxtail. It's traditional for the chef to come to each table to explain how his dishes are prepared, and you'll enjoy your meal in an intimate and lovely atmosphere.
Though small with only around 10 tables, this restaurant offers a relaxed and casual atmosphere and is considered extremely family friendly. Found in the Gothic Quarter, the food at Viana has consistently received rave reviews. Chef Solomon Tabisaura offers a menu that varies depending upon his whims and the freshest available ingredients, and you may enjoy such dishes as tapas, crunchy suckling pig, slow-cooked beef cheeks and soy-marinated tuna. There's also a bar on the premises, and the cocktails are considered the best in the city.
Delightfully described as an underground hipster restaurant in the neighborhood of Gracia, Spoonik promises and delivers a wonderfully unique dining experience. Chefs Jon Giraldo and Jaime Lieberman serve the food at three large tables that seat no more than 20 people, and every diner is served the same dish at the exact same time. Expect to dine on eight dishes with a paired wine, and each plate is nothing less than pure art. You also shouldn't be surprised if someone sings live opera between courses.
