LOOKING FOR A BORN RESTAURANT?

Born is one of those places in the world where time flies. A little quarter from Barcelona with narrow alleys and short streets where you can get lost admiring its authentic shops and eating at el Born restaurants. And you only realize how late it is when you start feeling hungry!

If you’ve been walking around for a long time shopping or sightseeing, it’s time to discover the best restaurants you can choose in this singular neighborhood of Barcelona. Ready?

These are our favorite restaurants in El Born:​

1

Montiel​

This nice and well decorated restaurant in El Born near the Picasso Museum was awarded on 2014 as the “Travellers’ Favourite Fine Dining Restaurants” on Tripadvisor. Its chef defines its restaurant as a “gastronomic space” with slow food philosophy: it means good, fairtrade and quality products. They offer a menu with a supplement for wine pairing if you wish. Or “à la carte” where there’s always some improvised dish depending on what’s fresh from the market and the cook’s inspiration that day.

Pla de la Garsa

A restaurant off the beaten path serving Catalan cuisine. Their menu is short but full of interesting choices such as the Tou dels Til·lers cheese as well as traditional dishes such as their canneloni (upgraded with a cep bechamel – yum). It’s antique decoration that transports you back to the early 1900’s make it for a romantic dinner as well.

Sagàs​

The Rovira’s family is from Sagàs, a little town north of Catalunya where, as the majority of the local population, they work as farmers. They cultivate the land and grow their animals, and finally they decided to cook their food and use all their products at their family restaurant: from land to the plate.

Now in their Born restaurant they offer sandwiches and salads, but also some main Catalan dishes as well. Their hamburgers are worth trying, as well as their patatas bravas and their desserts.

Cal Pep​

The only 20 stools in Cal Pep are some of the most coveted el Born Barcelona restaurants: people starts lining up by the bar door way before it opens. Fresh, delicious and local products make for a traditional cuisine conceived to be served as tapas. It’s a pricey meal, but a memorable one.

They don’t take reservations, but if waiting in line before they open isn’t your thing, you might want to check out their sister restaurant Passadis del Pep, just one block away. Just be warmed: there’s no menu there. They’ll start bringing you food and more food until you can’t take any more!

Llamber

After its successful restaurant in Avilés (Asturias), Fran Heras and Eva Arbonés decided to open LLamber Barcelona in an old fruit warehouse. They kept the original characteristics of the warehouse and preserved its charm by mixing rustic and industrial decoration. 

Their aim is creating minimalist creative tapas dishes to share. And in order to approach its cuisine to the general public, they offer a free tapa with every glass of wine ordered at the the bar (they offer 30 different wines by the glass).

Bar del Pla​

Located near the Picasso Museum, you’ll be surprised that the crowds of tourists haven’t discovered it yet: instead it’s mostly frequented by local foodies… and our guides with their guests! Make sure to order their amazing croquettes and their patatas bravas. It’s always a good idea to order a bunch of dishes to share.
