Me and my gf are in Barcelona and so far have had a few decent meals plus one horrible meal. But so far we havn´t had that meal that makes us understand why everyone says northern spain has the best food anywhere. The food we have had at one galician place in NY has bested all these places so far. The first meal we had, we got to the hotel and asked for a recommendation, went there but the place was closed and decided to try the place right next door. Besides the patatas bravas, its up there with one of my worst meals. I believe it was called Los Coconchas?
Though I wish we had reservations, and the money, for El Bulli, What are your recommendations for places to eat? We are staying by the Engineering School on Comte de Urgell. We will be around Montjuic and probably las ramblas today. We are looking for mainly reasonably priced places except for maybe one great place thats well worth it. One person at the hotel said his favorite is La fonda del mar by the olympic port.
