Our guide to dining out in Gay Barcelona
Catalan gastronomy is based on seasonal produce, fresh from the land. Olive oil, aromatic herbs, fruit and fresh fish, meat and vegetables are the essence of “market-fresh cuisine”: a cuisine featuring dishes made using the produce available at the market according to the season. The most recent trend has been to take the ordinary and everyday and turn it into gourmet! Traditional Catalan dishes are infused with new life and ingredients.
Prices are competitive and dining out daily is quite common for both locals and tourists.
Gay owned restaurants in Barcelona offer some great food, reasonable prices, combined with good service and a friendly atmosphere. Its worth noting that the restaurant scene is a little more dispersed than the bar and club scene, so don’t expect to find every restaurant right next to one another. While there are some great restaurants in the gay district, it is worth venturing out to Born and other districts to savour some inspiring menus and delicious wines.
Castro restaurant in Eixample is one of the most well know gay restaurants in Barcelona, offering delicious Mediterranean cuisine with some unique dishes, such as Australian Kangaroo.
