The Best Restaurants in Barcelona

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to dine in Barcelona, both International gourmet and traditional Spainish cuisine.

Our team to Barcelona are professional world-wide travellers who have tested a lot of hotels, restaurants and night-clubs.

They love Barcelona, an enchanting seaside city with boundless culture, fabled architecture, world-class dining and endless night life.

Barcelona is a wonderful city for shopping. From luxury shops, to the young designers of the city or the shops of classic articles, make Barcelona one of the most important cities for the market in Spain. Beyond this extraordinary variety of styles and shops, the good news is that Barcelona is a European city at bargain prices. The main Spanish brands do not hesitate - all year round - to make discounts of up to 30% of the prices that we will find in other European capitals. Barcelona is truly the city for shopping until you drop. Don't overload your suitcase for the trip.

Barcelona has long inspired artists, including Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, both of whom have major Barcelona museums devoted to their works. And Gaudi’s sculptural masterpieces of Modernisme, you will find them all over the town.

The night holds limitless possibilities in Barcelona. Start with sunset drinks on a panoramic terrace. As darkness falls, live music transforms the city, and the cava-bars fill. If you're still standing at 2am, hit the clubs and explore Barcelona's unabashed wild side.

The StarTripper Journal Recommends these Barcelona Restaurants:

Hotel picture Cinc Sentits is a modern and stylish restaurant located in the city centre.

Chef Jordi Artal cuisine is rooted in Catalunya’s culinary traditions, utilizing contemporary techniques and pristine local ingredients. The key to his great food is the fresh, high quality ingredients provided from across Catalunya and Spain; fish from small fishing villages along the Mediterranean coast, organic Beef from the Catalan Pyrenees, Iberian suckling pig from Extremadura and foie gras from the Empordan.

The wine-list is carefully curated, an award-winning wine selection from the wine regions of Catalonia and a broad selection from across Spain.

Passionate about great service and with unfailing charm and attention to detail, Amèlia Artal directs a team of young professionals to offer warm, friendly service without pretensions.

Carrer d'Aribau, 58
Regent Hotel Acces is situated in the center of Barcelona – a unique and stylish designed restaurant.

Acces restaurant and a lounge bar is called “Barcelona's best kept secret” – the elegant yet informal atmosphere of the Lounge area provides an alluring and spacious context for guests to enjoy dynamic cocktails or champagne. The perfect atmosphere for evening drinks, a celebration or a romantic meal.

The lavish ambience of the restaurant builds anticipation for the exquisite contemporary Mediterranean cuisine full of harmonies and contrasts. The professional Chefs can be observed through the open kitchen preparing the beautiful tasty dishes. The scallops and the hakefish is to die for, and the filet mignon is magnificent!

Carrer d'Aribau 55
Five stars
Regent Hotel Restaurant Uma is situated in Eixample of Barcelona – a very modern and stylish six tables dining room.

Chef Iker Erauzkin show does not begin until all diners have sat down – and finish when they decide to leave. Meanwhile, a tasting set menu is displayed, which dishes are as varied as disruptive – a total gastronomic experience that combines cuisine with show.

Restaurant Uma is an intimate and evocative place with a roguish, imaginative and bizarre cuisine in the best of senses, a cuisine as cosmopolitan as linked to the territory and, at last, a unique experience that does not resemble anything, for the most intrepid palates.

Among the many top-end restaurants around the world we have visited, Uma ranks very high. Chef Iker Erauzkin's show is a total and unique experience that leaves you without words.

Carrer de Mallorca 275
Hotel-picture A very stylish and elegant restaurant situated on the seafront in the heart of the Barceloneta neighbourhood.

Founded in 1903, an emblematic restaurant, famous for the rice and seafood dishes - Classic Mediterranean cuisine – the best sourced ingredients cooked according to traditional and sailor recipes. And perfect wine pairing options – every dish in the menu has one or several perfect matchings in the diverse range of wines; white, rosé or red, cava or champagne.

If something is delicious, why changing it? Can Solé is an anachronism, a culinary time capsule. We hope it never changes. The Chef serves, big, hearty, lovingly made dishes that haven’t changed in decades. There are no twists on classic themes, or modern takes with reinterpreted presentations. There are only bowlfuls and platefuls of deeply flavoursome food made with fine ingredients.

Can Solé is the right place for real seafood-lovers.

Sant Carles, 4
Hotel-picture Restaurant Can Culleretes is situated in Barri Gòtic in the City centre, close to La Rambla.

Founded in 1786, Can Culleretes is the oldest restaurant in Barcelona and the second in Spain – the restaurant contains within its walls over two hundred years of history that are present in every corner. This emblematic restaurant is decorated with large paintings of the early twentieth century and welcomes guests in a really nice atmosphere.

The extensive menu features the most traditional recipes of the Catalan cuisine, always made good market produce. The food is delicious, and the service is quick, friendly and efficient like a well-oiled machine, everything just happens like clockwork. We highly recommend paella, spinach Catalan style and suckling pig – meat Cannelloni was also excellent, everything is traditionally homemade.

Prices are just right; Catalan food can’t get any better at this antic restaurant.
