Park Güell is a mind blowing masterpiece by the master himself, Gaudi.

El Jardi de L’apat
€€€ | Catalan Cuisine | Outdoor Seating
This restaurant is only a 10-15 minute walk from Parc Güell. It is the perfect place to come and have a nice, long sit down lunch after exploring the parc. This is also a place heavily frequented by locals so it’s good to make a reservation.
I recommend when you can, getting a good seat outside on the terrace so that you can enjoy the nice views. The Calçots, ( green onion) which are a local, Catalan delicacy are in season from December to March, so if you are here in that period give them a try. If not, their menu is vast, and is sure to find something to please everyone.
Hours: 1 PM-4 PM, 8:30 PM-Midnight( Only Friday & Saturday) | Always Open
€€€ | Italian Food | Outdoor Seating
I know what you are thinking, ” Why are you recommending an Italian Restaurant in Barcelona”? I understand your thoughts, but the reason is simple, the food tastes good and it is close to Parc Güell. So enjoy it!
You will find many typical Italian treats such as pasta, panini, coffee and gelato. If you come, I highly recommend that you try and sit outside in the terrace and wash down your meal with a bottle of chilled white wine. You will reach nirvana.

La Granja is only about 6 blocks away from Parc Güell and is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or even a brunch. I would say that it’s more of a cafe than a restaurant and serves up some delicious Mediterranean and Spanish food.
The service is very good and make sure you ask them for the specials. They have readily available massive plates of ham and fruit and cold salads that will give you the energy you need to continue your day after visiting the Parc.

€€ | Creative Tapas | Great Atmosphere
This hidden gem is a bit of a walk from the Parc, but well worth it. The staff is super friendly and you will be pleasantly surprised by the inventive ways in which the kitchen has reinvented tapas.
They still offer the typical pan con tomate ( bread with tomatoes), but that is pretty much where the ” typical” ends. They offer a delicious salad with nuts, pumpkin, and gorgonzola cheese that is to die for. Wash all your tapas down with some rioja and enjoy Spanish life.
