Any Good Restaurants Near Sagrada Familia?

I usually tell my guests to avoid eating at the restaurants near Sagrada Familia: most of them are tourist traps. Unless you want to eat at McDonalds, KFC or Starbucks (not the kind of Spanish restaurant I’d be wishing to try…).

But sometimes when you are sightseeing, you can’t choose much where you’ll be for lunch. Maybe you spent longer than you thought inside the church. Or you had to wait too long in line to get in and it got late. Or you have online tickets in the early afternoon and it’s more convenient to eat nearby. That’s why today I’m going to share with you my favorite places to eat around the Sagrada Familia church.

Sagrada Familia restaurants: tapas and ham

These are the best places to eat near la Sagrada Familia:

1

Los Bellota

Bellota is the Spanish word for acorn, and bellota ham (jamón de bellota) is one of the most valued hams in Spain. So this restaurant is the perfect place to taste some typical Spanish cured meats and hams, specially from the Extremadura region. Delicious tapas and very good wines any time of the day. Their menu includes typical Spanish soups, salads, sandwiches and, of course, excellent Iberian meats.

2

Lata Barra

‘Lata’ means tin and ‘barra’ means bar counter. Here you will find a lot of high quality canned food (mostly fish) and a really spectacular marble bar. There are more than 20 specialties including sardines, tuna, mackerel, and fish spreads, all of them traditionally hand-made. A lovely light cold tapas lunch. Plus, if you liked what you ate, you can buy your favorite canned food at their shop.

Bardeni

The first meatbar in Barcelona, it specializes in creative and delicious meat tapas. It’s not a typical restaurant with tables, but you sit in stools and eat by the counter. If you are a meat-lover, don’t go to any other of the restaurants near la Sagrada Familia: This is the place to be!

La Piazzenza

During local lunchtime, there’s often a long line to eat in La Piazzenza, because their pizzas are really delicious. The menu offers also tapas and pasta but pizza is definitely the reason to come here. Really tasty pizzas with many ingredients. Our favorite is the amazing Vegetable Calzone.

5

L’Encís

A it further away, but still within walking distance, this is a typical Spanish restaurant where you can eat homemade paella, salads, meat or fish. The restaurant is really homely, and they serve value for money. It’s probably the only one of the restaurants near Sagrada Familia in its style.
