I know, search, there is tons on Barcelona. Thats just the problem, there is too much! I've found some really good rec's for top notch places that we will probably have one night (we are there 3 nights), but for the other nights and lunches I'm looking for more casual, cheaper places that are still good and not super touristy places. I found this post:
Which had some great recs by PBSF, "...some good everyday places that I like:
Sureny, Envalira, Bodega Manolo, Foquer and Goliard...". These places or similar or even more casual would be perfect, but then I realized these particular ones are all in Gracia area. We are staying in the marina area (Marina View BCN), so I was wondering if there are places closer to that that would be good. Or in Barri Gotic, Barcelonita, or close by there.
For a really good meal we'll probably go one night to either Alkimia, Gresca, or Cinq Centis.
On the tripadvisor reviews for our hotel/B&B some people commented on some restaurants close by that they liked...but I tend to not trust those as much as here. Anyone have any comments on these, they were:
Cal Pep, Taller De Tapas, Quiz Nits, Pjtarra.
Thanks in advance, I do plan on doing more searching and if I find things specific to my questions I'll repost here. I just don't have the much time before our trip!
