A Barcelona institution, Bar Pinotxo is located inside the Mercat de la Boqueria. This small tapas bar is owned and operated by Juanito Bayen. The cuisine is Catalan, and there is no menu; Juan or a server will simply spout off the day’s offerings. Pinotxo’s food has kept the restaurant in business for more than 50 years, and some offerings may include such traditional dishes as lamb stew, lentils, and chickpeas with botifarra, a Catalan white sausage. Dishes are complemented by the restaurant’s own sparkling wine, fittingly called Pinotxo.

Insider Tip:

The restaurant only has 14 seats, and it is busy from the time it opens until it closes. Patrons will have to hover and wait for a seat.
