A lot of us have a couple of restaurants on our lists, trustworthy places with a nice atmosphere that serve good food at fair prices. While there is nothing wrong with going to restaurants that have pleased us in the past, sometimes we need to take a risk and dare to try something completely new. So how about combining your meal with a cultural experience by visiting some of Barcelona’s best restaurant/galleries?
