Where we ate: Barcelona

View Spain/France 2018 on amikulski's travel map.

Even though we had been to Spain before with DD1, this was our first time really navigating restaurant food with kids. Back then, DD1 had just turned 1, so she ate baby food and assorted bites of our food. We did find a few kid menus on our trip, but none on this stop. There was still some good food for all, though. We just tended to order tapas for the girls (and often ourselves) to get the right-sized portions. Although we tried to choose what seemed like the kid-friendliest items on the menu, we did meet with resistance at times. Fortunately, we managed to get the girls to eat something.

Another thing for us to get used to was the late dinners in Spain. We tried to eat around the early end of dinner time: around 8 PM.

Here are some of the places where we ate in Barcelona.

Macxipan (aka Maxcipa)

This is a bakery chain. From what I saw, none of the locations have seating, but they have tasty and affordable pastries that you can get to go.

El Forn del Poble

This was our other go-to place for tasty and affordable pastries. DH also liked the coffee there.

Nou Celler

I've eaten at this restaurant in the Barri Gotic on every trip I have taken to Barcelona and have enjoyed it every time. My favorite here is the pollo a la catalana. DH had the country paella. The girls did tapas. Everything is good, but I remember the meatballs and fuet the most.

Café de l'académie

This is another place in the Barri Gotic. We ate here with our friends, and everyone in group of 4 adults and 4 kids was happy with what they ordered.

El Rincón de Luca

We had tapas here for dinner on our first night. It's near the Collblanc metro. The menu is limited, but everything we ordered was good.

Churrería Fernández

Good churros with super-thick hot chocolate near the Collblanc metro.
