Sunday lunch in Barcelona
We have a cruise stop in Barcelona on a Sunday and would like a long, leisurely lunch. We've done Barcelona up and down so other than a lazy wander, we are just going to soak up the ambience.
Any lunch suggestions? We will be there in three weeks.
Lunch is a busy time on Sunday.
Kaiku (in Barceloneta, so it's fairly close) is a good bet.
If you choose to sit outside be VERY wary of purses etc. It's a prime pickpocketing/snatching area as so many day cruise passengers (and a large police presence) but better safe than sorry. Reservations recommended or get there very early.
At Set Portes don't miss the Arroz Negro and other rice dishes. And the staff is very gracious if you want to share a rice dish with your dining companion.
Last time I was in Barcelona, I had arroz negro at Arrozeria Sarria (very disappointing) and Casa Delfin (ok). Set Portes still makes it best.
Another good hang-out for cruisers is the Maritime Museum quite near the waterfront of the Ramblas. Not for a long lunch, but perfect spot for breakfast or an afternoon coffee in the lovely garden café.
