Staying at Gat Xino Hotel (Calle Hospital) in Barcelona - good food in the area?

D Hound Nov 12, 2007 08:23 AM

I will be staying for a long weekend in Barcelona, in the above mentioned location (if I understand correctly, it's the "Barrio Chino", near Las Ramblas).

Can knowledgeable people recommend good food in the area? We eat everything and love to try new things. Pricewise, we can do one or two fancy meals, but want the rest of our meals to be more casual/affordable. One of us is a particularly big fan of seafood.

Thanks for your advice.

    Your hotel is just off the Rambla, therefore, fairly centrally located. Central Barcelona is not very big and most areas are within walking distance. The restaurants around your hotel mostly cater to the locals. Search this board for Barcelona restaurants and most recommendations are not far from where you're staying at.
