Written by Christine

One of the great things about Barcelona is its delicious food and its variety of restaurants. Anything you have a craving for can be found, especially in one Barcelona’s most well-known neighborhoods, Barrio Gótico. Rich with history, culture, and gastronomy, Barrio Gótico should be your number-one choice for renting in Barcelona. A new trend in recent years has been the appearance of more vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Barcelona, especially in the city center. Here are some suggestions of where you can find exquisite vegetarian food in the heart of Barcelona.

Biocenter has been serving delicious vegetarian dishes in Barcelona since 1980 and it shows no signs of slowing down. Since its inception, this restaurant has emphasized the importance of organic ingredients and fresh produce. In addition to being healthy and tasty, this restaurant is incredibly affordable, as the set menu during the week is only €10.45 for four courses (€12.45 on Saturday). Biocenter is more than a restaurant since its walls serve and as exhibition space for local artists and, periodically, there are workshops or talks held to promote the vegetarian lifestyle. Check out their website for menu options and upcoming events.
