Best Barcelona Beach Restaurants
DINNING BY THE SEA: BARCELONA BEACHFRONT RESTAURANTS
This time of the year, many clients ask me to recommend them good Barcelona beach restaurants. After all, they are a perfect choice for a summer meal. However, there are so many, and so many of them are no more than tourist traps, that visitors need some orientation to choose where to go.
These are our favorite beach restaurants in Barcelona:
Located in the Olympic Village, I love dining at their outdoor terrace, with the quiet sound of the ways in my ears, to view of the palm trees and the moon, and a candle on my table to make the evening even more romantic. And after dinner, if I feel like dancing, some of my favorite nightclubs are just next door. This is I chose Agua from all the offer in the area: it’s just next door to the best ones.
Nothing beats the astounding views over the water, while I savor a gourmet rice with my friends. And I can’t resist their lemon pie for dessert either!
Hungry at the beach? A “chiringuito” is an informal beach bar serving comfort food and drinks, and there are a few located along the Barcelona beaches. And most of them, though, the food isn’t great… But this is not the case of this one, where their goal is to serve gourmet beach food.
Either you need breakfast after a night partying, or you want a light meal like a sandwich and a salad, or if you want to seat down and have some tapas… They get you covered! And of course they have an enticing drinks menu with cocktails, gin and tonics, vermouth and more!
Cal Pinxo Platja
This restaurant is run by the 5th generation of the same family devoted for decades to seafood cooking in the Barceloneta (BTW, more Barceloneta restaurants here). Well known by the locals, it features an outdoor terrace overlooking the beach. Head here for great lobster, prawns, shrimp or any kind of shellfish.
AND BONUS! Here is where else locals go:
Ca la Nuri Platja
And this is how Ca la Nuri Platja has become a local favorite for tapas, fish and rices by the sea. There’s always at least one vegetarian rice available in their menu.
