The Top Restaurants in Barcelona, Spain

Bar Mut - Edinformatics Select Carrer de Pau Claris, 192, Barcelona --93-217-43-38 located in the upmarket business area, just off Avenida Diagonal. Reservations recommended.

This is where the locals go for great tapas. Restaurant has a feel of a small French Bistro. They make their own squid ink here and is is superb... try any dish that uses it! Toast topped with luscious duck liver and caramelized onion, and a hearty four-cheese risotto are excellent. Menu is written on the blackboard at the bar. Excellent priorat house wine -- Note: As in most places in Spain ask ahead for prices of shellfish. tripadvisor reviews

Comerc24 24, 08003 Barcelona, Spain +34933192102

"The restaurant is located in what was once a traditional shop selling salted fish, pickled foods and preserves in the quarter of El Born."

Comerç 24, is the showplace of Carles Abellán, 38, a veteran of El Bulli and in the forefront of the new Catalan cuisine. And, Adrià himself highly recommends it. It is in essence a tapas bar with the conveniences and service of a classic restaurant, featuring a cosmopolitan ambience. You can choose to either sit at the bar counter or at tables. Memorable signature egg dish: "Kinder egg", a trimmed egg shell served in a ceramic egg carton, filled with layers of soft egg, truffle and potato foam .
