Barcelona Questions

  • 0

My partner and I will be spending a week in Barcelona in early October, and hate to eat mediocre meals. We are mostly fish/vegetable eaters but make special exemptions for jamon.

Regular lunch options seem pretty clear to us, we are looking for good seafood places and there seem to be plenty (Rias de Galicia, Mar de la Ribera, La Paradeta) plus Bars in La Boqueria. But..Will be spending one day around Montjuic at the Fundacio Miro and Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya and a good part of another day up at Park Guell. Any good places to eat in either location (Miro Cafe or Font del Gat)?

Other problem is that we can only eat one main meal a day, and it will probably be lunch so that we don't run ourselves too ragged and are forced to sit still. Nights will probably be snacking in cafes with wine, but preferably sitting down (we'll do some tapas-ing/pinotxo-ing around too). So the longwinded question is, recommendations for relaxed sit down places with salads and/or bocadillos, & wine (have read recs on Cafe Vienna, QuQu, and Taller de Tapas). Our Hostal is in the Eixample near Grand Via and Carrer de Girona, but location is not an issue.

Last question, we have opera and concert tickets. Is there a Bar with tapas etc in either the Palau de la Musica Catalana or the Gran Teatre del Liceu and are they worth stopping in at before the concert/opera?

Much thanks fellow chowhounders!
