El Dinamic de Bcn

Hugely popular with a young crowd, El Dinamic can be a tricky place to find a table. The space barely hides its workshop origins, and the wait staff can be tricky to flag down, though when they do get around to it there are some nice tapas bites to be had here and a selection of local craft beers.

Open: Wed & Thurs 5:00pm – midnight; Fri 5:00pm – 1:00am; Sat 1:00pm – 1:00am; Sun 1:00pm – midnight

Palosanto

Palosanto is a tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Rambla del Raval, Barcelona

With indoor seating for a maximum of 20 diners, it can be hard to get a table at Palosanto – it doesn’t help that it only offers a couple of tables for more than two. What must be the world’s smallest kitchen turns out some pretty decent burgers, along with some more traditional tapas fare, alongside a few more unusual dishes such as the rather nice artichoke salad with tuna.

Cuines Santa Caterina

Cuines Santa Caterina is a popular option in Santa Caterina market, Barcelona

This place is hugely popular, and it’s easy to see why. Eat in the restaurant, at the bar, or al fresco on a nice day, but be aware – it’s a tapas menu at the bar and outside, while the indoors dining area has the full menu.

The kitchen turns out an odd array of dishes, from Spanish standards to Thai noodles and sushi. Needless to say we stick with the Spanish.

Butifara sausage, foie and Santa Pau beans at Cuines Santa Caterina. Awesome

The Catalan sausage with foie gras and Santa Pau beans is a standout on a menu that’s generally winners.
