Barcelona—lunch or dinner?

mbfant | Aug 27, 2007 12:19 AM

We'll be in Barcelona (for the first time) for a long weekend this week. I keep reading about all these "fun places for lunch" but what is the situation in the evening? Are there good typical places you can go on the early side without a reservation?

Also, I have a reservation for Saturday lunch (a slot we like at upscale restaurants) at Cinc Sentits. Any thoughts on this? Have the tasting menu? Don't? Go elsewhere?

Is Sunday lunch a big thing as in Italy? (must be) Would that be a good time to go to Barceloneta for seafood? Is that a good idea at all?

In general, we like a mix of places on our trips—traditional, traditional interpreted, snacks, and cutting edge with a local accent. And I doubt I can persuade my husband to wait in line for more than five minutes.

Many thanks.
