I love Barcelona! It’s one of my favourite places ever, and the healthy food options there are just amazing and keep getting better all the time.
There are literally places to eat on every street ranging from traditional tapas, pizza, amazing ice creams and seemingly more and more cool juice bars and veggie cafes.
I always explore and hunt down the best veggie, vegan, and raw places to eat whenever I go and really wanted to share my finds (so far) with you!
I would love to know if you have any recommendations as I’m always keen to find new favourites.
Here’s some of mine;
My favourite restaurant in Barcelona by far! The food is amazing. The concept is ‘flaxarian’, mostly plantbased with a little fish and cheese.
I think that their healthy and innovative menu offers a unique combination of delicious, healthy and substantial dishes.
They have some fantastic raw options which are imaginative and really tasty (not just salads and courgetti).
I also have to mention their delicious cold pressed juices, again unique with lots of extra healthy additions such as spirulina and ginseng (both veg and fruit based).
A key highlight on their menu for me is their Meze Platter – three types of delicious nut and seed hummus’s, raw crackers, kale salad and raw falafals. Not to be missed!
The restaurant is large, airy and has a lovely friendly atmosphere. Always good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
El Cafe Blue Project – Calle Princesa, 57, 08003 Barcelona
This is a 100% organic cafe offering a range of vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and raw dishes.
Think raw pizza and vegan burgers, amazing salads and raw vegan desserts.
A small place with a lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. They offer a daily menu which is good value and delicious.
We’ve been there three times and the food has been fantastic every time. You feel like you’ve eaten something really nourishing and also super tasty. Love it.
Gourmet Tapas – Carrer de Milans, 4, 08002 Barcelona
Another new find in the Gothic Quarter. This cool restaurant had only been open for three weeks when I visited earlier in the year but has a buzzing atmosphere and really helpful staff who seemed passionate about the food.
Fantastic selection of really delicious vegetarian tapas; mesclun salad with avocado, the best tomato bread, tofu bites, aubergine Parmesagano, sun dried tomato risotto, green beans with poached egg and the best Thai curry with baked sweet and black potatoes. This curry was so good I could have eaten four portions!! Amazing.
As an aside they have a fantastic range of wines as well.
Veggie Garden – Carrer dels Àngels, 3, 08001 Barcelona
Vegetarian Indian cafe and juice bar near the hospital, serves a range of Thali’s, veggie sandwiches and juices.
Informal, very reasonably priced with a studenty, hippie vibe.
With a simlar hippie vibe is Juicy Jones a juice bar with a range of good vegan breakfast options and veggie burgers. We had a vegan tortilla, cashew yogurt with muesli and fruit and juice of the day. All good and cost effective – loads of food for 10 euros.
Vegetalia – C/ Escudellers, 54, 08002 Barcelona
Friendly informal vegetarian restaurant in the Gothic Quarter, great range of veggie pizza’s, tapas, burgers etc.
Very reasonably priced lunch and dinner pre-fixed menus, plus a nice outside seating area
Sweet Dreams – Carrer de Regomir 4 Bis, Barcelona, Spain
Cute little bakery in the Gothic Quarter with a range of vegan and gluten free cakes. Andy had huge slice of vegan chocolate cake and was very happy!
La Boqeria – Les Rambles, 91, 08001 Barcelona
Love this market just off La Rambla, I get hugely excited everytime I go there. The atmosphere is buzzing and the fruit and veg stalls will blow your mind with the amazing range and colour.
You can also get my favourite fresh coconuts there (they use a nifty opening devise which I would love!).
Woki Organic Supermarket – Ronda de la Universitat, 20, 08007 Barcelona
So excited with this new find! Beautiful little organic supermarket with a restaurant at the back.
Lot’s of super healthy choices; tapas (hummus, gauakamoli, babaganoush, veggie croquettes) loads of salad options (quinoa, lentil, green salads, sprouted seeds), mix and match stir fries, multiple veggie burgers, sandwiches etc
A really lovely atmosphere with friendly staff and really fresh food packed with flavour.
I hope you like my selection of veggie friendly restaurants…I would love to hear what you think of my choices and I can’t wait to discover more.
