Spanish food?, sorry but there's not such thing... there are several very different cuisines in Spain -mostly matching their autonomous communities, or if you want their regions (coastal, inland... ). Andalucian cuisine is for example very different to Basc or Asturian ones.

Anyhow, have a look here, there's a great choice based on different parametres:

also, TimeOut has very often interesting proposals:

What type of food would you prefer?, traditional, seafood...?

Lots of nice restaurants within walking distance to Hotel Jazz. Codium, Cinc Sentits, Lasarte, Windsor, to drop a few names. Depends on your budget and taste.

Hi sean0s!

I really recommend you a restaurant called Igueldo (http://www.restauranteigueldo.com/en/). I was yesterday with my family and it's really good and less than 40 euros each.

For good paella you can take a look at this post where you can find some of the best places to eat paella in Barcelona: blog.trip4real.com/best-paella-in-barcelona/

If you and your girlfriend like wine, try checking out Monvinic. They serve food, too, but we didn't eat there, so I do not know how good it is. Would be a great after-dinner place, though!

I was in Barcelona last weekend and had dinner in La Bodeguita de Provenza. A lovely place on the Calle Provenza just off the Paseo de Gracia. You can have tapas, full meal or what you fancy. They also have an excellent wine selection.

For Sunday lunch we went to El Chiringuito de Escriba which is a fish/ seafood restaurant on the seafront in the Port Olimpic. It also specialises in paella. Incidentally, paella is normally eaten for lunch, not dinner. You need to book these restaurants as they are very popular.

When the OP said he would like Spanish food I think he meant cooking from Spain and not something like Chinese or other nationality. So, if the regional cooking is Andaluz, Basco, Catalan etc it would suffice.

Thanks hermanaeriza, I indeed also know what he meant but the fact remains that from a cooking point of view "Spanish cuisine" has no meaning whatsoever... it'd be like saying "European cuisine", ok but which one? We all agree that Polish stews for example have nothing to do with Sicilian salads, don't we? ;))) And in the case of the different cuisines in Spain, there are significant differences from one to another.
