THE BARCELONA BEST SEAFOOD RESTAURANTS REVEALED
You can’t leave Barcelona without eating in a seafood restaurant! Located by the Mediterranean sea, Barcelona offers a wide selection of amazing seafood and fish restaurants.
These are our favorite seafood restaurants in Barcelona:
Many locals consider it the best fish restaurant in Barcelona. It’s tricky name refers to the censer that receives pilgrims in Santiago de Compostela.
There many features simple plates: plain grilled, steamed, baked or fried fish or seafood, and some reach rice dishes such as that wonderful “arròs caldós”. It is also a great option if you don’t want to wait until locals are hungry to eat, as the kitchen is open nonstop. After your meal, you’ll want to explore the lively plazas of Gracia.

And they are serious! They’ll be offering you the best fish they found that day on the market and they mean you to eat it! I must say that I’m usually so full that I usually skip that and go directly for dessert and coffee!
Rías de Galicia
Ferran Adrià, God of the chefs from over the world, decided to partner with some colleagues to open this Barcelona fish restaurant serving super fresh seafood. Its location comes in very handy for a nice meal after seeing the magic fountain show or walking around Montjuïc.
In a cozy plaza you will find a very authentic local restaurant that is not often found by tourists. After your meal, I recommend a nice walk down the Rambla del Poblenou and if you have still some more room left in your stomach stop at Tio Che for a glass of fresh horchata or a scoop of ice cream. Our favorite off the beaten path Barcelona fish restaurant!
If you are into raw fish and you love unusual experiences, the make sure to book a table in the upper floor of Rias de Galicia. Espai Kru has been designed with a more modern touch, with views over the kitchen and a cocktail offer.
Their menu is divided in two sections: raw seafood and produce prepared with a slight touch of sophistication, and the fire-cooked specialties. Of course, Ferran Adrià’s surprising personality can be sensed everywhere there. That’s why it made it to our list of top seafood restaurants.
