As a beautiful Mediterranean city, Barcelona has a varied taste in seafood that permeates the entire city. The nuances are more noticeable in coastal areas as well as in different districts such as La Barceloneta and Paseo Marítimo. Here we will provide you with a detailed itinerary of some of the best restaurants that are located in Barcelona, where you can discover the most authentic flavours from the sea.
Our tour of the restaurants starts from the neighbourhood of La Barceloneta. This is an area that's perhaps the most clearly connected to the seafaring tradition by being home to the picturesque Puerto Viejo of Barcelona. It is precisely at this point, in Paseo de Juan de Barbón, where we find different restaurants like the Torre d'Alta Mar. This elegant establishment is easily identifiable as it stands on top of a metal tower. To accompany the view, the menu is noted for rice and seafood, with a touch of modern cuisine.
You should not walk very far to locate Can Solé. This restaurant understands that the best products from the land (and sea) are sufficient in filling dishes. The 'suquet' (traditional seafood stew) and hedgehog are proof of this. Moving on from Paseo Marítimo, the most popular offer that can be found is the Carpe Diem Lounge Club, whose restaurant is practically impossible to pigeonhole into a single type of cuisine. The Mediterranean presence is evident on the menu, but with it, the most daring Asian and Indian dishes emerge.
Of course, few culinary experiences can compare to going offshore in order to taste the freshest foods and fruits. The Boo Restaurant & Beach Club is located near the Bac de Roda (in Playa Nueva de Mar Bella). This restaurant is impossibly hard to miss as it's shaped like a giant boat. This is a place that has been gaining visibility in recent times and is particularly suited to groups of diners.
To put the finishing touches to this brief list of seaside restaurants, we will move away slightly from the Paseo Marítimo to head towards Vell Poblenou, in Taulat Street, (near Rambla del Poblenou). Here you will find one of the most popular dining places that's full of charm and flavour. Remember that if you want to enjoy first-hand the many culinary attractions of the area (Poblenou, La Barceloneta ...), Engel & Völkers Barcelona will help you find the property that best suits your needs.
