Hello fellow chowhounds. I am planning a trip to barcelona in June with my father. He loves his food but has had a few health issues lately. I'm looking for restaurants that offer good Catalan/ Spanish food. Realistically we won't be fighting our way to the counter to bag the best tapas, or propping up the bar and shouting over ear splitting music. Ideally, I'd like recommendations on family friendly places, and nice cafes especially if they do churros. Obviously, we'd like to avoid tourist traps and soulless chains. I speak reasonable Spanish (alas no catalan) so language shouldn't be an issue.
We'' ll be staying north of the ramblas but location isn't a big issue, I'm sure we can taxi it.
Thanks for any suggestions
