My girlfriend and I are going to Barcelona in 2 weeks and I have a list of bars and restaurants that I want to check out while we're there. We are looking for one "fancier" place for a romantic dinner and I'm trying to decide between Montiel, Gresca, Tast-ller, or somewhere else in the price range of around E100 per person with wine. I wouldn't mind going over that a little bit if necessary but just trying to give people an idea of the budget.
The rest of my tentative restaurant itinerary follows. I would love any thoughts on the restaurants I've chosen or suggestions on what to change if anything. We are staying in El Born in an apartment on Carrer d'En Boquer near Carrer de la Princesa.
Day 1 - Dinner at Arcano
Day 2 - (Festival of St. Joan) lunch at El Quim or Pintxos in La Boqueria. Buying food at the market to take down to the beach that night for the festivities. Will probably hit some Barceloneta bars while we're down there.
Day 3 - Day trip to Figueres. I'm still looking for a restaurant for lunch near the Dali museum. Any suggestions? Dinner at Tapeo back in BCN
Day 4 - Lunch at Paco Merlago, Cervecería Catalana or Cosmo after Sagrada Familia and Gaudi houses. Dinner at El Xampanyet, Mosquito, Bar del Pla, or Dos Palillos.
Day 5 - Lunch at Paradeta near the park. Dinner at Montiel, Gresca, Tast-ller or somewhere else.
Finally, I was able to get a reservation for Tickets for Saturday June 27 for 1:00 but our plans changed and now we're leaving that morning. Do you think there is any hope of trying to stop in there and see if they can squeeze us in on another day?
Any suggestions about my restaurant choices would be greatly appreciated.
