With its innovative, internationally acclaimed cuisine, Barcelona is home to some of Spain’s most unforgettable gastronomic experiences. In the 2015 edition of the Guide Michelin, a total of 23 of the best restaurants in Barcelona were awarded either one or two stars, enabling the Catalan capital to maintain its standing as Spain’s most star-studded city. In addition to outstanding high-end eateries such as Tickets, Disfrutar and Caelis, there’s no shortage of casual, cheap-as-chips tapas bars throughout the city, to ensure that you’ll never go hungry.

Flanked by the Pyrenees and bathed by the Mediterranean, Barcelona has an unbeatable bounty that makes it one of the prime culinary destinations in the world. Feast on high-end tapas by superstar brothers Ferran and Albert Adrià at Tickets, or seasonal fare at Carles Abellán's Michelin-starred Comerç24. Restaurants in Barcelona also boast touches of Moorish cuisine and, of course, Catalan specialties like mar i muntanya (surf 'n' turf) and crema catalana. In true Spanish style, bares de tapas are also a Barcelona staple, and one of the best ways to explore the city. You'll want to check out a variety of Barcelona restaurants to fully experience its rich gastronomic landscape.
