Restaurant/bar recommendations


Myself and 4 friends are visiting Barcelona later this month for 2 nights, we are all in our early 40s. We are looking for restaurant and bar recommendations where we won't feel like everyone's mother.

Can anyone help and advise if we would need to book for the restaurants.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, do not sorry. I'm about ten years older than you and I rarely feel like everyone's mother when going out. Definitely not at most restaurants, and the bars for teens are usually quite obvious.

Please give us a few details so we can help better, like where are you staying in case you are willing to head somewhere nearby for dinner/drinks, and your budget.

Most restaurants will not require booking, but it would be advisable for the most popular and imprescindible for some, so again it's not possible to give a general answer.

In some areas like El Born there are so many nice bars, so you can just walk around and enter wherever you fancy. Mind that people here goes out late, so some bars may not be open before 8pm and some are empty before midnight...
