The secret Barcelona terraces that you need to know
Where to eat and be happy makes sense, and we don’t only have delightful rooftop terraces in Barcelona to go out and have a drink; and we’re going to show you.
Terraces Barcelona, two words which cover so very much: on the one hand the unique lifestyle, and on the other the opportunity to get to know gastronomic Barcelona within an almost impossible atmosphere.
With the arrival of the good weather you feel like eating out, it’s like that, but literally out, in the street. And as your wish is our command, this is exactly what we are going to do, but guys, you already know us. We are not going to present to you whatever Barcelona terrace, no, we’re going to present the best restaurants with terrace in Barcelona from within.
Let’s start from the secret, and what we are suggesting are those interior Barcelona terraces, those which escape from the city noise and promise (and fulfil) unique experiences. As of now we’ll tell you that we are going to present for all tastes, from more exclusive terraces to others ideal to have a good time with friends, enjoying a delicious economical set menu. Is your mouth watering? Ours is, we are not going to delay any more in presenting the best Barcelona terraces. We’ll tell you something before we present the best Barcelona terraces. Remember that we love you very much, because you are not going to forgive us for not having told you before (sorry).
WE GO TO THE TERRACES
First stop, Brummel Kitchen: where are the hipsters of our student residence? Let them show themselves. In the heart of Poble Sec is hidden your interior Barcelona terrace that you dreamed about. And it is the obligatory stop because of its obvious reasons: simple, minimalist, photogenic (amen to our posing); you don’t feel like anything is out of place. Certainly it will end up becoming one of your favourite places for the moment, and it won’t only be because they serve one of the most exquisite brunches in the area, no. And the neighbours? My beloved friends, this jewel of a place has a truce with the neighbours of Palo Cortao, it is a good sign. We’ll tell you something else: we know that you love our buffet at midday, that the food is the best in the whole wide world, and nothing could be better, we know, but for one day (not more as we miss you) we’ll let you go to enjoy its midday set menu for €12.50. We approve, we have to confess. This precious Barcelona terrace is to be found at Nou de la Rambla 174.
Second stop, Casa Bonay: pay attention as this Barcelona terrace comes with a surprise. You know it, or at least it rings a bell that you’ve heard it spoken about. Well yes, it’s a hotel, but like all good hotels, it has a terrace to be reconciled with the peace of urban life, which also exists, you only have to look up and go up a few floors (minimum 9). We’ll tell you that this is one of the best Barcelona terraces where you can enjoy a private space, where the food is heavenly. But… we’ve already told you that it comes with a surprise, if the Barcelona street is not your thing, let us tell you that we’ll move this atmosphere to the beach. It’s a joke, we would do it for you but in this case we have already been overtaken.
This marine experience is called Casa Bonay Goes to Sea (original? Not a lot) we simply move the idea of private space and the exclusivity of the food to the sea but we add an extra touch. The menu is prepared by Estanislao Carenzo himself of the Elephant Crocodile and Monkey, ta-da!
To enjoy this so extremely incredible experience we tell you to hurry up since Casa Bonay only organises outings in May, July and September on board the Narinan, Kenneth Perdigon’s sailboat (yes, baby), for a maximum of six people. The price? € 145 per person but for once in a lifetime it’s really worth it.
Third stop, Marea Baja: aha, no we’re not going to the beach, we are sorry if we are really making you want to go to the beach to eat. Guilty! We’ll tell you that Marea Baja has nothing to envy of its big brother, Marea Alta. We find ourselves on the lower floor where it gives competition. It offers a menu of Finger food (with oysters included) where you can enjoy a wide menu of cocktails, sangrias, and you can even appreciate the presence of binoculars. Are you up for it? We are 😉
Fourth stop, the terrace of the Cercle: we are leaving the beach to present another of our selection of restaurants with terrace in Barcelona, and in this case we are going to none other than the Cercle Artístic de Barcelona, which has become a Barcelona basic that you must visit no matter what. We’ll tell you that for many years there have been a lot of questions about how to get into such an appealing terrace that opens onto Portal del Àngel. In its interior we will be able to enjoy a delicious set menu of Mediterranean food (two courses and desert) full of love, but we will also have the option to taste dishes of Japanese cuisine, ask for a cocktail, some tapas and, above all, enjoy the character of being in a five-century-old building. Touché.
We’ll put a full stop to our selection of Barcelona terraces. Why? Because we are going to be sharing them with you little by little. For the moment enjoy these, there are many more to come. We love you!
