My husband and I will be in Barcelona next week. We will be staying at The Hotel Casta Furster.
A friend suggested Windsor for lunch rather than dinner, . We are also thinking of:
EL Principal for dinner,
Cal Pep (do you advise tappas, ot the restaraunt? )
Speccio Lluis for one italian dinner just to have something different one night.
Asador de Aranda ( Tibidabo) although saw many bad reviews on TA and heavy lamb is not my favorite but I do enjoy other meat dishes and the buliding looks beautiful. Is the time it takes to get there woth it? I think we would take a taxi, Googlemaps shows a ten-15 minute ride from our hotel?
7 Portes ( TA people have advised it is not worth it, way to touristy yet I do see many good reviews and must admit the history and tradition do appeal as long as it is not a real tourist trap and the food will be delicious!
Need a reccomendation for one fantastic fish restaraunt, fresh, simple, maybe a water view but flexible on that.We definately want one outrageously fresh and good fish dinner , once read about a place in a small square, in an old house but do not remember where?
We do plan to try othe tappas places as we go.
So.... Any advise? Any that I have left out that I should experience. I know there are many, just want some opinions. Sitting outdoors, in squares and again personality, history , beautiful decor really wins us over! ( yup...that is how we decided on our Hotel...Casta Fuster!)
Thank you in advance. We always appreciate advice from those who have " been there...done that " !
