Once again, the Gothic Quarter triumphs in its gastronomic offerings. Quick, declicious and cheap tapas!
Grab a quick, cheap bite to eat.
In the centre of Barcelona and want to grab a bite to eat? Don’t want to waste too much time or money? Head straight to the Gothic Quarter and discover a plethora of bars, restaurants and terraces, where you can sample a delicious dish or small snack portions, while you take in one of the city’s most charismatic neighbourhoods. If you want to grab some tapas on a terrace, or small dishes in a bar, this is the perfect time to sample some of Barcelona’s typical gastronomy. The large majority of bars will serve botifarra, different kinds of pastries, ‘suquet’ and tuna with samfaina sauce, as well as regional wines and cava to perfectly accompany your meal. Any of the places around the Cathedral are perfect for this, and we recommend ‘bar-hopping’ around this area. One place that has become an institution for desserts is Belgious, which specialises in ice cream and all the different types of Catalonian desserts, from Catalonian cream, to sweet pastries. This is found at number 50 on Avinyo Street. Don’t miss out!
