restaurants-1When planning a day out for the family in Barcelona, where to eat will be one of the main considerations at least once, if not twice during the day. Kids always have so much more energy than us adults, but once that is expended, you’ll no doubt be thinking about refueling at a child-friendly venue with a fantastic menu. Hotel Grums is a great solution if you are looking for family hotels in Barcelona.

Here is a selection of the best, most family-oriented restaurants in Barcelona:

La Granja 1872


La Granja 1872 is a great cafe to stop at for light refreshments, especially if anyone in your family is fond of chocolate. La Granja offers every kind of hot chocolate you can imagine. There is ‘suizo’, which is topped with whipped cream, or if you fancy more of a kick, you can try the chilli-infused version. What makes this place extra special is the section of city wall (from Roman times) found at the back of the café.

Loction: Carrer de Banys Nous 4, Barri Gòtic


Vegetarians in Barcelona make a bee-line for Aguaribay, with good reason. Their menu offers more original, creative takes on vegetarian dishes without compromising on nutrition. If you’re visiting for lunch you might like the cream of polenta and sage, while the kids may opt for the delicious stuffed pasta. What’s more, an aperitif tapa is included with all meals.

If you stop by for dinner, you can choose from a wide range of mouth-watering tapas, so there will be something for everyone. A well-deserved wine or beer is also an option!

A unique take on classic Catalan and French cuisine is the trademark of Ada Parellada. Meat eaters might want to take advantage of Semproniana’s tasty game dishes.

If you are visiting on a Saturday afternoon, you can double the fun for the children by signing them up to the ‘Patacutxi’ cooking workshop.  Designed for children aged 4 to 10, they’re sure to have a great time and learn a few culinary tricks for adulthood! Of course, this leaves you free to relax in the stylish, ambient dining room for a while.
