El Nacional is a great way to experience the best that Spain has to offer. It’s located on Passeig de Gràcia, just a short walk up from Plaça Catalunya and is a lovely building in which to spend time eating and drinking with friends. It is the first restaurant in Barcelona with different areas where you can try traditional recipes, prepared with top quality produce and served in unique surroundings.
Originally an old plant, now a restaurant complex, you have 4 culinary areas to choose from: La Braseria, specialising in meat-based dishes, La Llotja is renowned for its quality fish, La Tapería offering a great variety of tapas and paella fideuá and La Paradeta is a fast deli restaurant. You will also find specialised bars serving wine, cocktails, oysters, and Cava and last but not least, beer. So there’s something for everyone.
