As far as I am concerned the best Italian restaurant in Barcelona is Bella Napoli in Carrer Magarit, Poble Sec. The place attracts large numbers of Italian ex-pats served by occassionally infuriating Marx-brother-style waiters who delight in playing tricks on the punters. Superb pizzas and antipasta. Booking at the weekend is advisable.

Koy Shunka in Barcelona is claimed to be one of the best Japanese restaurants outside of Japan.
I must admit expectations were high upon entering as pretty much every Chef in Spain talks about this restaurant, but without a shadow of a doubt it surpassed what I expected! With the kitchen being the center stage from the moment you walked in you could not help feel a part of the theatrics….All of the Chefs were laughing and interacting with all of the guests seated around the bar seating and the edges of the kitchen.

The council has this useful page showing details of allotments in Barcelona. They are aimed at people aged 65 and over and are seriously oversubscribed. Despite the official propoganda the council really haven’t invested enough in allotments. There are 11 sites providing allotments for a few hundred pensioners in the city. They should create more.

If fish and chips is your thing, then look no further than the chippie on Rambla del Raval, opposite Botero’s cat. “The only place in Barcelona where you will find a tasty authentic fish and chip supper or traditional English breakfast”. They aren’t bad at all.

The best place to eat calçots in/near Barcelona is in my opinion Can Juaco. Set in the heart of Collserola, this is a great place for roast meats, snails, roast aubergine and other traditional Catalan and Castillian-Burgos food. In the evening you may be lucky to happen on boars on your drive up.

I had an enjoyable dinner last night in Khan Kaffrun which specialises in authentic Syrian and Lebanese food with a hint of Greece thrown in. The restaurant is run by a very friendly Lebanese family, and is cheap, cheerful and very good quality, not an easy combination to find in Barcelona. Dishes include standard Arabic fare including humous, mutabal, labné, fatush (Lebanese salad), and cheese and meat arayes, and Greek mousaka. Highly recommended.
Price: 10-20 euros

La Miranda Del Museo is my favourite rooftop bar-restaurant in Barcelona. It is located between Barceloneta and the Gothic Quarter in the Palau de Mar, the only building which still survives from Barcelona’s Old Port. The first three floors of the building are taken up by the Museu de Historia de Catalunya. Take the lift up to the fourth floor. Superb views of Barcelona harbour, Montjuic and Tibidabo.
Mediterranean cusine specialised in seafood. A reasonably-priced lunch menu is available during the week. Cafeteria service is also offered during museum hours. A great place to admire the city with a coffee.

I had a rather nice meal last week in Restaurante Kasbah, my favourite Arab restaurant in Barcelona. The decor is great fun with the usual tapestries, mosaics, low tables and stools, and a fountain tinkling away right in the middle of the dining room. Extensive menu with Maghrebi, Near Eastern and French food.
Dishes: couscous (the lamb and chickpeas is lovely), tajin (superb), brochettes, mutabal. And make sure your try the nems – delicious chicken rolls- and the kubeiba suri – raw meat patties, though have it as a starter not as a second course.
A full meal should come to around 20 euros.

I had a very enjoyable meal last week at Abissinia, Barcelona’s only Ethiopian restaurant last week. We sat on low wooden stools and were served selections of meat and vegetable dishes on hourglass-shaped straw tables called mesobs. The food is served directly on large pancake-like bread (injera), which you pull apart with you hands and use to scoop up your food with. No cutlery is provided. Excellent value at 15 euros a head.

Good review here from the Metropolitan.
