Good, fun restaurants to try in Barcelona for first time visitor

First time visiting the city and I want to hit the top restaurants. Ideally places that are a fun scene too. Any recommendations?

    One of my absolute favorite Barcelona restaurants is

    Petra (website), located in the Born district. I wouldn't say it's "fun" in the sense that it's not a crazy scene, but it's got a great atmosphere, eclectic funky decor, amazing food, and really good wine. I've recommended it to everyone that visits and I always get rave reviews from people after they go. It's so good.

    The El Born area in general is a really cool place, full of amazing boutiques, tapas places, and lots of bars. Definitely worth exploring.

    La Pepita is a great place to go for Tapas. Try the Tuna Pepita. You won't regret it.

    Sadly, I don't know of anything trendy, but please, please, please DON'T eat El Glop. I should have known better when seeing the name, as it defines the food perfectly. Imagine a raw egg at the bottom of a luke warm french onion soup. *shiver* Just soooo bad.

    Hi Sally!

    Nice you are coming to town... I got a freebie tapa restaurant guide for you here: #BCN - by locals

    My personal favorite is an argentinian/spanish place on a charming square in old town: Alsur Café (El Born) (GGL maps Link)

    I also would like to vote up the Cervecería Catalana! A go to place, but you need to plan between half an hour to an hour wait (weekends are really packed).

    But food, as you can see here, is fresh and delicious:

    Cervecería CatalanaHope you enjoy the trip and consider checking out my ebook... It is worth it. A lot of stuff you will not discover without having locals advice ;-)

    Cheerz, Jahn

    Never made it myself but heard great things about La Champagneria. Also, take a walk down the beach, pretty much any of the restaurants are a good choice. The beach is also a big spot for night clubs if thats what your looking for. Definitely make time for the Basílica de la Sagrada Família, just buy tickets ahead of time as it gets extremely busy. If you like the style of the Familia then also check out Parc Güell.

    I would suggest Taller de Tapas (there are several in the city), or Cerveseria Ciutat Comtal or Cervecería Catalana. Whilst these are not first options for locals, I have always taken foreign friends out to these places and they loved them. Tapas with international twist & great atmosphere!
