The Best Restaurants on Avenida Diagonal

Written by Joe Thurston

Avenida Diagonal is one of the main roads in Barcelona, stretching all the way across the city from the coast at Besos Mar and not stopping until way up in Les Corts. It is an excellent area to shop while also having beautiful buildings that are worth seeing. If you spend some time in this area, you may want to stop for a meal. Here are some of the best restaurants on Avenida Diagonal.

Right in the centre of Avenida Diagonal, near the district of Gràcia, is the modern tapas bar Cros Diagonal Restaurant. Whether you are after tapas or a traditional Spanish dish, this is the place to go in Avenida Diagonal. The house specialty is their list of eggs done in multiple different fashions; a great choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Address: Av. Diagonal, 433


Down near Sagrada Familia is the Italian restaurant PerBacco. This charming little restaurant has everything you could ask for: from delicious pizzas to beautiful handmade pasta and ice cream. It is slightly more expensive than the other options but the food is truly wonderful and the atmosphere will send you straight to the streets of Rome.

Address: Av. Diagonal, 339


The Cow Market up near Les Corts is truly the place to go for steaks, sausages and all things that can be grilled. Not one for the vegetarians, this is a meat-lovers paradise offering vast arrays of different cuts of meats and red wines. Definitely a great choice for when you need a protein kick!

Address: Av. Diagonal, 529

Sushi fans should look no further than Yashima. This wonderfully modern restaurant is just off Plaza de Francesc Macia and is very popular indeed. The sushi is prepared right in front of your eyes, and you can get all kinds of Japanese delicacies as well. A great place for an international meal, right in the heart of Barcelona.

Address: Av. de Josep Tarradellas

  • Yashima is a wonderful restaurant, I’ve been there after looking it up. it has great reputation
    All the meals there (soup, sushi, dessert) were delicious. The staff could be a bit more quick to respond, but overall, I can’t find much to complain.
    i also have nothing but praise for PerBacco!
    It’s good for both the locals and the tourists. The staff are friendly, the sitting is cozy and clean, the food is pretty much what you’d expect from a decent italian restaurant. Their seafood pasta is especially popular.
