The best restaurants in Barcelona – a food lover’s dream

best restaurants in Barcelona - Salvaje

Choosing the best restaurants in Barcelona is not an easy task in a city where world-class cuisine tops other widely known attractions like Gaudi’s famous architecture, sandy Mediterranean beaches, art museums, vibrant cultural heritage, and of course, its outstanding football team. Eating out in Barcelona is an authentic taste experience and the favourite way of spending the evening for locals, somewhat annoyed by the never-ending stream of foodies from all over the globe.

Barcelona is the third city in Europe, as ranked by Michelin star restaurants (after Paris and London). These are all luxury restaurants whose primary gastronomic offering is their tasting menu and they are places where you have to book well in advance if you plan to enjoy a visit.

Contents

There are literally too many dazzling restaurants and famous chefs that have taken residence in the Catalan capital to list them all, but we in Noble & Style have risen to the challenge and offer you our curated choice of the best restaurants in Barcelona. Whether you are looking for Michelin star fame, unpretentious tapas bars, or local Catalan cuisine, we’ve got you covered.

The restaurant’s very name reveals a Galician cuisine (‘Botafumeiro’), based on products sourced from the Bay of Biscay. It offers generous seafood dishes in private dining rooms. The quality of the food is in accordance with the restaurant’s great fame in the city. Botafumeiro is locally known for having arguably ‘the best seafood soup in the world’.

Besta amalgamates the best both seas can offer: the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean. It makes sense, knowing it’s directed by a duo of Catalan and Galician chefs, escaping the haute cuisine in which they once worked, yet to which they do not intend to return. They bring seafood from Galicia and source the best Mediterranean fish they find in the nearest fish market. The name of the restaurant, ‘Besta’, means beast, drawing a connection with its origin, the Galician countryside.

Direkte Boqueria is perhaps the smallest restaurant in Barcelona.

Imagine how exclusive and hard-to-get each seat is, without a prior booking. However, it has managed to enter the Michelin guide in 2022 because of its spectacular tasting menu of ten dishes and two desserts. It’s directed by Arnau Muñío, a chef who has worked with Albert Adrià.

Ronit Stern, the chef of Israeli origin of this Michelin Guide restaurant, enjoys creating Middle Eastern fusion cuisine dishes that combine Sephardic and North African flavours with local Mediterranean ones.

One of the best artisanal pizzeria chains in the world, Grosso Napoletano, offers authentic Neapolitan pizza with thick edges and very thin dough, with ingredients brought from Naples and made in two stone and wood ovens whose fires don’t stop burning. The original twist of its restaurant placed in “carrer de Valencia” is that its pizzas are completely gluten-free. The chain also has another pizzeria in Barcelona located on Avenida Diagonal that serves normal pizzas. This way, Grosso Napolitano has covered both the gluten-free pizza recipes and the traditional ones.
Its design is inspired by the industrial aesthetics of New York, with a Neapolitan touch. The pizzas are big, so when you go there, make sure you get hungry. The pure Neapolitan ‘essenza’ (essence).
