Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Barcelona

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. 
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.
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.
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.
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.
