I have now been in Barcelona a while and I have been trying out some various restaurants by now. So if you are a foodie and want to know some great places to eat here in Barcelona, just keep up reading my friend!
First of all, I should mention that I eat mostly a plant based diet that doesn’t include any meat or fish. I also try to stay away from diary as much as possible. My choices of eating like I do, won’t be the focus on this post, let’s talk about the restaurants. Don’t worry, these places I’m gonna mention does not only serve vegan or vegetarian food!
Flax and Kale/ Teresa Carles
The reason I put these two restaurants under one, is because it’s the same owner and the same kind of style when it comes to the food and the place. These two places must be my favorites! These places are both very popular places, always people, but you don’t have to wait forever to get a table. The food is really fantastic! The menu is not only for vegetarians. I have only tried the vegan food and wow, they really know how to make food taste perfect. What I really can recommend is the taco from Flax and Kale, that is made out of a special fruit that replace the meat. Even my non vegetarian boyfriend loved it! The service is great, very friendly and kind. The price is good too. These restaurant’s is the perfect breakfast spot or a nice dinner with friends or as a dating place (they have good wine)! Check out their homepage here for more info and photos.
Enkel is the restaurant that is just under our apartment, that’s how we found it, hehe! It’s located in the gothic quarter, kind of hidden in one of the many small streets in this area. The restaurant’s looks kind of trendy and it has a cool vibe to it. The waiters is so kind and friendly and the price is good. The food is so amazing! Since it is so near, I have been there many times, tried different things, and every time I get surprised about how freaking good the food is! I guess that’s why it is so popular and always have people there. They have both meat, normal burgers, fish etc, and also a very good vegetarian friendly menu. The Buddha bowl is fantastic, so is the goat cheese salad. They serves fresh juices that is perfect if you go there for breakfast, or tasty wine if your out dining.

Well, hello beach vibes! If you having a beach day and want some energy between sunbathing and playing in the waves, this is the place for you. It’s located right next to the beach and they have a big area outside, so you can enjoy your food while you’re listening to the ocean. The food is really good. Again, not only for vegetarians, but they have a great menu if you are plant based. For sure the best Acai bowl I have had so far! The price is good and the people are nice. It’s a very popular place, so you might have to wait some minutes to get table if you come around lunch time. Check out their side here.
Brunch and cake
Before moving to Barcelona I did search over my social media to look for vegan friendly places to eat. This was the one I found on Instagram, their profile looks amazing, so it was a sure thing that I got to try this place when getting here. They have 3 or 4 restaurants, I have been to two of them. Both times I had to wait about at least 30 min before getting a table. The place looks very cozy and cute as you see with all their flower decorations outside. My expectation to this place was kind of high! And who walked out disappointed? Yes… The food wasn’t that wow at all. Actually I couldn’t finish my vegan burger because I didn’t find it tasty (and let me tell you, I’m one of those persons that eats EVERYTHING, of course not now when I’m plant based, but you get the point). The service wasn’t that good, of curse, they constantly have a 30 min line of hungry people outside their door. The price was good though. If you want a super cute Instagram photo, this is your place. But, if you want good service, tasty food and more relaxing environment, this is not your place. Check out their side here
If you ever go to Barcelona and try out some of these places, I hope you’re pleased with my recommendation. It’s plenty of places to eat here, and I still have 8 weeks more, so it might come up more tips on that front later on.
