One day in Barcelona: where to eat


My second time in Barcelona, last year I had seen the great classics, so this time for a single day I wanted to experience it as a resident and with the residents to go to the best tapas bars and restaurants.

I share with you some addresses not to be missed from breakfast to after dinner.

What better way to start the day than at Pasteleria Mauri , a historic patisserie there since 1929. The wooden interiors and frescoes are remained intact and give a retro air that perfectly completes the already excellent experience thanks to the delicious pastries and croissants served.

For a breakfast or brunch a little less resident, more international and in any case delicious, you can opt for the colorful Brunch & Cake, ranging from avocado toast to homemade cakes (different vegan choices), to be enjoyed outdoors or outdoors. inside in single or social tables.

We come to one of my favorite tapas bars, ideal for lunch after maybe having a nice walk on the beach on the Barceloneta. This is the Bar Jaica, also historical (it exists since 1955) and serves the most traditional tapas such as bravas potato, pimiento de padron, amazing tortilla and much more.

For a chic aperitif with a view you can opt for the terrace of the Hotel Majestic or even the rooftop of the Hotel Ohla and from there walk to the Gothic quarter for dinner.

Perfect dinner at Bodega La Puntual, a tapas venue revisited and a welcoming and elegant setting with exposed bricks, high ceilings and wooden tables.

The best way to end the evening: have a drink with local people at Bar Marsella in the Raval district. It is said that Hemingway, Picasso and Dalí were frequent visitors, and still retains that distinctly bohemian atmosphere.
