Because we know finding a good place to eat on the beach in Barcelona can be quite a challenge, Fisa Rentals recommends the following restaurants with a sea flavour:
There is no greater summer pleasure than eating on a terrace by the sea, an experience to try at Maná 75, one of the liveliest restaurants in La Barceloneta. As well as the essential paellas and rice dishes, their menu includes traditional Mediterranean tapas, and delicious fish, salads and tartars. Maná 75 offers a totally refreshing experience in a modern atmosphere, with theme nights and DJ sessions.
A classic on the Catalan coast, Xiringuito Escribà is often considered the best beach restaurant in Barcelona. This is no coincidence, as this restaurant, founded in 1992, is a benchmark for seafood cuisine, with paellas and seafood as its main dishes. Located on Bogatell beach, its fame led the owners of Escribà to open a new restaurant in Tokyo, the bustling capital of Japan.
Fresh, casual gastronomy is the hallmark of Ca la Nuri, which in addition to the typical dishes of beach restaurants in Barcelona, offers a range of modern cocktails and sangrias. All this in an idyllic setting right in front of the Nova Icaria beach, and at a very affordable price. Ca la Nuri is ideal to go with friends or a partner, to have a good time by the sea and away from formalities.
One of the best restaurants to eat on the beach in Barcelona for its excellent value for money, Barraca offers top quality dishes paired with magnificent views of the Mediterranean, as its terrace is right on the seafront. Feast your eyes on the sea views while you try their incredible homemade croquettes and hearty seafood paella.
La Mar Salada is one of La Barceloneta's long-established restaurants, frequented by families and friends right on the Juan de Borbón promenade. Either inside or on the terrace, you'll feel right at home while you enjoy classic seafood cuisine straight from the fish market, as the owners are very proud to claim.
It has no sign, but its name is well known. La Cova Fumada is another of Barcelona's legendary beach restaurants, and a must-visit if you're looking for good tapas by the sea. Located in an old wine cellar, the place has an informal atmosphere where you won't be judged for wearing flip-flops. Be sure to try the legendary Bomba de la Barceloneta, as well as the calamari and cod tapas.
