Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Barcelona

Els Pescadors
Set on a charming tree-filled square, Els Pescadors serves perfectly cooked fish, seafood and rice dishes in Barcelona’s Sant Marti district.
Roca Moo
Hotel Omm’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Roca Moo, serves up wonderful Catalan cuisine with the theatrical open kitchen providing the perfect backdrop...
La Fonda
Large in size, cosy in feel, La Fonda is always buzzing with locals and tourists alike looking for traditional Catalan food at prices that won’t break the bank. 
ABAC
Abac’s light and airy pavilion setting, leading onto spectacular gardens, exudes a calm and elegance not often found in upbeat Barcelona. Everything served to diners here draws inspiration from Spain’s natural larder.
Dos Palillos
Bursting with atmosphere and too many dishes to count on your fingers, Dos Palillos is a unique fusion of Asian and Spanish food, all under one roof.
El Vaso de Oro
Traditional, delicious tapas and a great selection of artesan beer
Taller de Tapas
The incredible amount of press which surrounds Taller de Tapas serves as a testimony to its success; come here for lunch rather than supper to get a romantic table overlooking the the square.
Restaurant Fonda España
Historical features meet modern design at Restaurant Fonda España, a must for culture vultures and foodies alike, with delicate dishes and fine wine in abundance.
Café Kafka
Pop in for a drink, or stay for lunch or dinner, either way and for however long, Café Kafka is the ideal spot for a charming and completely unique pit stop while wandering the streets of Barcelona. 
Moo
Many hotel restaurants disappoint, but that's certainly not the case at the humorously named Moo. With a recent restaurant makeover and stylish new bar under its belt, you won’t want to miss this one out.
Tickets
Albert and Ferran Adrià's new eatery and cocktail bar in Barcelona is much more casual than their famed El Bulli, but no less spectacular.
Santa Maria
One of the Borne district's most renowned restaurants Santa Maria is frequented by a loyal following of foodies who lap up the consistently excellent food and always-reasonable prices.
Santa Caterina Cuines
Falling away from the tourist trail on the Mercat Santa Caterina Santa Caterina Cuines serves up wonderfully fresh ingredients and a buzzing atmosphere.
Mordisco
A neat, sweet little restaurant serving good quality fresh food that won't break the bank.
La Bodegueta
Appearances can be deceptive and this is no more true than at La Bodegueta; although not the most sophisticated design-wise the authentic cuisine makes it one of Barcelona's must-eats.
Matsuri
We're not afraid to say it; Matsuri is the best place for sushi in Barcelona. Insanely reasonable prices compliment the exquisite cuisine while the wonderfully attentive service wraps things up nicely.
Comerc 24
With El Bulli acolyte Carles Abellan at the helm Comerc 24's menu is as much the work of an artist as it is a chef. Sit savour and enjoy.
Cata 181
As one of Barcelona's best kept secrets - until now that is - Cata 181 is where boisterous locals dine until the small hours away from the city's tourist traps. Tell only your best friends.
Cafe de L’Academia
A good sign when dining in a different city is whether the locals enjoy it - and this is certainly the case at Cafe de L'Academia, where insiders jostle against tourists for mouthwatering tapas.
Arola
Following on from the success of Madrid-based restaurant La Broche, chef Sergi Arola's eponymous Barcelona debut is housed (rather fittingly) within the super stylish Hotel Arts and has become a hip hangout in its own right.
Ca L’Isidre
An impressive wine list, excellent food and super-friendly service ensure the continued popularity of Ca L'Isidre. The art crowd can't get enough.
Pasta, Paris and DJ SLOK
Electronic music genius DJ Slok, shares his thoughts on pasta, Paris and the DJ game in this quick interview.
Glamour at the ME Barcelona hotel
Planning a stylish getaway? ME Barcelona is an elegant hotel in the centre of the Catalonian capital, with a Michelin-starred in-house restaurant.
