Cheap places to eat in barcelona
bars and restaurants barcelona
This Neapolitan place is called Pizzeria da Nanni and not only has the cheapest pizzas we have found in the city, but also holds a respectable position among the best in Barcelona.
The virtues of this place are its prices and the value of the everyday. Also the nostalgia of going back to where you’ve always been, even if you were born far away. But to be honest, one cannot feed eternally on bacon sandwiches, sausage, sausage or hamburger. You also have to give a little more to lettuce.
Look, spaghetti as cooked in Trastevere, at factory prices, made in your face and on the spot. Marcello Mastroianni tastes them, gives them a thumbs up and asks if the sua mamma made them. Really, they are a spectacle, better than most Italian restaurants. A must-visit place.
It is a classic of beer Fridays in the Plaça del Sol. There is a moment of the night, located between the first beer and the eviction of the police, when you get hungry (and want to go pee, but that’s another story). In that case the star solution is La Piadina del Sol: the best piadina in Barcelona.
You can choose between different prices depending on the use you are going to give it. We have gathered all the options so that you can compare them at a glance. All the necessary information is available with the corresponding link of the tourist card, at the beginning of this paragraph.
If we have to recommend places to eat well and cheaply in Barcelona we have to talk about its markets. The San Jose Market, better known as La Boqueria, is the best known and has become a very famous tourist spot on the Rambla. Although it represents a place of reference for locals and restaurants to buy fresh produce, it also has different stalls where the best of Catalan cuisine is cooked. If you do not know what are the most typical dishes of Barcelona, we have dedicated a post to them so you know what to order in the bars and restaurants that we talk about below.
The same goes for the Santa Caterina Market, located on the other side of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. In this case we are talking about the oldest of the city, although it has not lost its seal of quality.
