One of Barceloneta’s top nightclubs, Pacha is also one of its greatest restaurants. With a trendy atmosphere and first-class service, it reminds us of Ibiza’s best leisure establishments. Its menu offers you the best of both Mediterranean and Asian food, complemented by a vast and versatile list of cocktails. As if that wasn’t enough of a reason to visit this great seaside restaurant, Pacha also features top-notch resident DJs, with deep house chill out sessions starting every day at 6 PM.

Juanita Lalá

Located in the port of Barcelona, Juanita Lalá is a modern restaurant where Mediterranean cuisine and Tex-Mex have come together to create the concept of “Food and Boom”. Its menu offers a varied mix of Spanish and Mexican tapas, all served with sophisticated presentation and attention to detail. When it comes to the list of drinks, it is loaded with cocktails that are both delicious and trendy.

With a very friendly staff and a live DJ that always keeps the good vibes flowing, Juanita Lalá is a very cozy restaurant with a truly joyful atmosphere. Frequented by plenty of young people, it’s an excellent choice for an animated meal in Barcelona. We recommend that you look for a seat in their very popular terrace, which will gift you with an incredible view of the ocean.

Following the success of its “big brother” Bembì, another restaurant belonging to the same owners, Rangoli opened with the same philosophy – to provide its customers with the best of Indian cuisine through exclusive and innovative dishes. With a vast menu where you can find flavors and traditions from a wide variety of Indian regions, it offers a sampling option for those trying Indian food for the first time and several economic lunch combinations available on weekdays.

Rangoli takes its name from a type of traditional Indian art – the same art that decorates its walls, giving it a unique atmosphere. With a rich cocktail bar and a terrace from where you can appreciate the nearby beach in all its beauty, Rangoli is a perfect choice for group dinners and big celebrations.

Another one of the best restaurants in Barceloneta is Can Solé. With an 112-year history of excellent service that saw it go through 4 generations of family ownership, Can Solé is legendary amongst the locals for its delicious seafood and rice dishes. Staying faithful to the traditions of Spanish seaside cuisine, they have been able to assimilate new gastronomical trends without ever losing what makes their food so special – the passion and dedication they put into its preparation, together with a commitment to only using the freshest, top-quality ingredients.

Having earned the Catalonia Government’s Plaque of Honour for its tradition of excellence, as well as the National Gastronomy Award in 1998, 1999 and 2000, Can Solé is recommended on virtually every Barcelona tourism guide and gastronomical route. You definitely should give it a try – and when you do, make sure to check out their extensive wine list, where you’ll be sure to find the right complement for your delicious lunch or dinner.
