Menu del Dia

First of all let us remind you of the local timetables as they are different to most European countries. Lunch and dinner in Spain usually start later than the rest of Europe. Locals will normally have lunch from 14.00 to 16.00 and dinner from 21.00 to 23.30.

At lunch time, the best option is the ‘Menu del Dia’ as it is a very economic way of trying traditional Catalan cuisine. It consist of 2 main courses, bread, drinks and coffee or dessert for a fixed price of around €12, although price depends on the restaurant.
These are offered at lunch time Mon-Fri, although some restaurants offer this menu on Saturday usually at a higher price.
There are lots of offices around Passeig de Gracia (see area in the following Barcelona map), that means that there are lots of restaurants in the area, so instead of staying around the Ramblas for lunch, go to any of these restaurants, look for Menu del Dia sign and if you see local people in there, just get in. You won’t regret it.
