Will great Barcelona restaurants be open week between Christmas and New Year's?

Hi all,

I'm contemplating a last minute trip to Barcelona for the week between Christmas and New Year's but am wondering whether any/some/most great restaurants close for a holiday that week?

Thank you!

  1. Most restaurants will be closed Christmas day. The day after, the 26th, falls on a Sunday. That is the regular closing day for most high-end restaurants. Between that and New Years Eve, most will be open. I would call the places that you have in mind and inquire. Many such as Sauc, Cinc Sentits, Hisop, Olive, Gaig,Coure are chef owned, therefore, the closing changes year to year. Restaurants that are housed in high-end hotels such as Moments, Moo, Lassarte, Drolma will be open for sure. New Years Eve is the day that most restaurants will have an expensive mandatory set menu to celebrate the occasion.
