barcelona - good food/good air?

lisa13 | Oct 31, 2007 09:00 AM

My man and I are going to be in Barcelona for a week in November, and I wanted to see if anyone has advice about places that have really good food that is not likely to be spoiled by too much cigarette smoke?

I know smoking is not highly regulated there, but I have no idea how they handle this issue in restaurants, especially at high end places. I would hope they recognise that smoky air obscures the best culinary efforts, but I'm not sure.

The crux is I don't want to spend 100e each on a meal if most of what I'll taste is smoke from surrounding tables. Any relevant experiences to share?
