Plaça d’Espanya is one of the most popular neighborhoods in which to stay for people visiting Barcelona for business purposes; such as meetings, congresses or conferences. The proximity of the Plaza to several transportation services, including the Sants train station, the airport shuttle bus, the metro, the tram and several local buses, makes it one of the busiest places in Barcelona and also one of the most easily accessible.

One of our most frequent questions from guests staying in these apartments or in accommodations in Poble Sec is “Where to Eat near Plaça d’Espanya?

At first sight, this bodega looks quite like a bar; but once inside you will stay for the sophisticated and modern cuisine. Some of their signatures include gourmet versions of basic Catalan classics; such as a dill seasoned ensaladilla rusa (Russian salad), house-made croquettes and huevos estrellados (fried eggs with sausage and ham). To pair with these dishes, you will also find a carefully curated list of good wines that will bring joy even to wine amateurs. All of this in a cozy and modern atmosphere with a high quality service, while remaining authentic!

For the true foodies out there, we highly recommend Espai Kru. The restaurant bases its menu on the concept of food history before and after the invention of fire. Signature dishes include fish and seafood all raw, wagyu beef carpaccio and Galician beef tartar from the raw menu and Iberian rib with oyster sauce from the hot list. The fine cuisine and spectacular service come with a price tag, but we recommend that you treat yourself special and try this place out anyway.

Upon entering you will be seated around a cask with stools, typical of the tapas bar in Spain. We recommend a glass of wine from the Priorat region and some Manchego cheese with Iberian ham to match.

You can’t get more authentic than this matchbox-sized tapas bar in the heart of the Poble Sec neighborhood, near Plaça d’Espanya. The restaurant consists of two tables and a bar surrounded with shelves stacked densely with cans, jars and bottles. We recommend arriving on time (the place gets busy around 1pm), standing at the bar and ordering whatever looks good. Just be sure to not take too long, you will not win the favor of the busy barman that way. Our favorite dishes include the mojama (dry-cured tuna with almonds), the cod liver on crunchy bread with caviar and the creamy and pungent Torta del Casar with glazed chestnuts for dessert.

Address: Poeta Cabanyes 25, 08004 Barcelona
