“I don’t LIKE food, I LOVE it. If I don’t LOVE it, I don’t SWALLOW.” — Food critic Anton Ego in the movie Ratatouille –
Diagonal Mar isn’t just about beaches and “chiringuitos” (beach bars) but in fact it holds some amazing fine dining. Of course, you have the regular Dominos pizza around the corner, the mall fully equipped with McDonalds and other fast foods, but I wanted to focus a bit on restaurants of quality in this area. These are some of the most beautiful Barcelona rental apartments kissing the sweet Mediterranean Sea so why wouldn’t you deserve to eat like a king in addition to living like one?

Our description of the restaurants:
You are located in the fashionable area of the new Barcelona and here you will find out good restaurants such as this one. This is a seafood restaurant where you will enjoy the best products from the sea. Fresh local seafood, delicious meats, paellas, all kinds of rice dishes as well as breakfast.
This Brazilian influenced restaurant is the king of fondue! The restaurant is pretty bare with a cafeteria-like feeling which normally isn’t my personal style, but the fondue is to die for. They also offer Brazilian dishes as well with a fusion twist. For the fondues though, which is the restaurant’s specialty, you can find sweet fruits for dipping in chocolate in addition to cheese sauces to dip breads, pastas, and seafood. If you have never had a fondue experience, this is a good time to try it. Fondue is fun for the family as well as long as the kids aren’t too tiny. What can I say? This place is DELICIOUS and don’t forget to pair your meal with a caipirinha or a mojito as it is one of their specialties. If you are here for a party, this is a great place to go to as well as they have specials for groups of 40-80 persons.
This restaurant is Located in front of the sea. El Modernista del Mediterrani restaurant is ideal for stopping on your way to or from the excellent Poble Nou beaches.

The other Spanish specialty, as you probably already know, is fish and seafood. Els Pescadors is cool. There is no other way to describe it. It is comfortable and gives you a feeling of overall wellbeing while you are eating. They have a varied menu of seafood and rice dishes and what is completely atypical in Barcelona restaurants, a menu just for the kids! The seafood is fresh; the place has a romantic and rustic ambience. This is a must if you are fortunate enough to be staying in this area of the city.
