Cheap Restaurants

Malevo
This hip little spot in Poble Sec serves up delicious Argentinean-inspired cuisine such as pumpkin tart stuffed with meatloaf and of course empanadas - all for a handful of yoyos (that's coolspeak for "euros"). The wood panelled walls, modernista tiles and hanging lamps make for a cosy atmosphere. 

Address: 52 Carrer Margarit | Telephone: 93 137 5770 |

Ziryab
Bare brick walls, soft lighting and a mezzanine floor with Ottoman-style seating create an intimate vibe for sampling the house's fusion Arabic tapas. The Lebanese wines from the Bekaa Valley round off the experience perfectly.

Address: Carrer dels Ases, 16 | Telephone: 932 681 774 |

Jai-Ca
So popular it had to open a second venue two doors down from the original, Jai-Ca epitomises the authentic Barcelona tapas experience with a menu of affordable and deliciously unhealthy Spanish dishes.

Address: Carrer Ginebra 7, 9, 13 | Telephone: |

Cafe Menssana
This healthy eating spot, in a hidden corner behind the Parc de la Ciutadella, is lent an academic air by the bright young things popping in from Pompeu Fabra University. Join them for a vegan pita or rocket and halloumi salad in the airy interior or out on the street terrace.

Address: 48 Carrer Sardenya | Telephone: 93 624 3505 |

Tasca El Corral
This spit and sawdust Spanish tavern serves rustic dishes from various parts of the Iberian peninsula, such as callos a la madrileña - delicious tripe stew, or chorizo al diablo -  dangerously spicy sausage. It's worth ordering the Cantabrian cider to see the waiters pour it the traditional way, bottle raised, glasses by the hip. 

Address: 17 Carrer de la Merce | Telephone: 93 315 2059 |

La Plata
It doesn't get much more authentic than this erstwhile fishermen's bar, which since 1945 has served only a handful of simple tapas - namely pescaditos (pan-fried fish), botifarra (Catalan sausage), fresh anchovies and their specialty salad. The attractive blue ceramics add to the charm. 

Address: 28 Carrer de la Merce | Telephone: 93 315 1009 |

Tropico
A map of the world is plastered over an otherwise bare brick wall, a stash of well worn suitcases fills an alcove and exotic plant life from the Americas oxygenates the room. The far flung themes extend to the menu where arepas, enchiladas, ceviche and acai juice cocktails all feature. 

Address: 24 Carrer Marques de Barbera | Telephone: 93 667 7552 |

Felice
Add this to your list of cute little eateries in the Gracia district: a Dutch-owned tapas bar with classy black, white and wood decor spiced up by pop art canvases. The covered terrace at the back is romantically ramshackle and the eclectic international dishes are fantastic quality for the price. 

Address: Carrer Francisco Giner 22 | Telephone: 93 112 1123 |

La Vietnamita Born
Students and flashpackers rub shoulders on cube-shaped stools along shared dining tables at this fast-paced Asian canteen, which serves up quality Vietnamese streetfood as both tapas and mains. A round of passion fruit mojitos is the spark that ignites your Born district bar crawl...  

Address: Comerc 17 | Telephone: 93 310 0961 |

Affordable Restaurants

Dirty South
A welcome taste of America's famous deep south cuisine arrives in Barcelona in the form of Dirty South, where you can dine out on Louisiana faves such as gumbo (shellfish and braised meat stew) and a vegan version of Jambalaya, paired with a Sazerac or Gin Fizz. During Sunday brunch they serve Bloody Marys by the jug.   

Address: 46 Carrer de Bruc | Telephone: 646 015 167 |

Citrus
Superb dishes like grilled diced salmon with rosé cava jelly are served up at Citrus for little more than a McMenu. The light, modern interior was dreamt up by award-winning designer Antoni Arola and, with its 1st floor location, the restaurant enjoys views over the Passeig de Gracia.

Address: 44 Passeig de Gràcia | Telephone: 93 487 2345 |

El 58
Modern yet cosy, bohemian but unpretentious, delicious yet affordable, El 58 has mastered the balancing act that leads to a great tapas bar. Menu highlights include the aubergine with honey, octopus carpaccio and the house bravas. 

Address: 58 Rambla Poblenou | Telephone: |

Carlota Akaneya
Sumiyaki is Japanese for "charcoal grill" and at Carlota Akaneya diners get to barbecue their food Samurai-style at their own table. Once the meat/fish/vegetables are grilled to perfection, it's time to experiment with the spicy sauces.  

Address: 32 Carrer Pintor Fortuny | Telephone: 93 302 7768 |

Santagustina
Jet black awnings, gold lettering and dark wood finishes create a classy first impression at this tapas restaurant. Thankfully there's substance behind the style as well-executed Spanish classics are complemented by more innovative dishes like seabass and mango ceviche. Located in a quiet corner of El Born.    

Address: 9 Plaza Sant Agusti Vell | Telephone: 93 315 7904 |

Good Quality Restaurants

Dos Pebrots

Address: Carrer Doctor Dou 19 | Telephone: 93 853 9598 |

Piratas
Ahoy there m'hearties, a treasure chest of culinary gems awaits any brave buccaneer who makes it to Piratas.

Pez Vela
In the shadow of the W-Hotel, you'll find this trendy terrace restaurant styled in the manner of one of Spain's famous chiringuitos (beach bars), with great views over the sands of Platja de Sant Sebastia. The fare is classic stuff: paellas and rice dishes, and the fresh catch of the day. The clams in chili and basil sauce are particularly good.  

Address: Passeig del Mare Nostrum 19/21 | Telephone: 93 2216317 |

Fine Dining Restaurants

Botafumeiro
Named after the 80kg silver thurible at Santiago de Compostela cathedral, it's worth making a pilgrimage to Barcelona's very own Botafumeiro for the divine Galician seafood that graces these tables. Woody Allen, Julio Iglesias and the King of Spain have all called by on their travels.

Address: 81 Carrer Gran de Gracia | Telephone: 93 218 4230 |

Address: 259 Carrer Mallorca | Telephone: 93 445 32 42 |

Manairo
Madcap metalwork statues set the tone for a singular supper, courtesy of chef Jordi Herrera's playful imagination. In his diminutive restaurant diners can try such fancies as sticky pork jowl over a fluffy bean purée or pasta parcels of foie gras. For dessert: vinegar-marinated strawberries.

Address: 424 Carrer Diputacio | Telephone: 93 231 0057 |
