General: "Menu del Dia" Local Eating Tip by scott_doane

Local Eating, Barcelona: 48 reviews and 37 photos


A tradition in much of Spain and very active in Barcelona is the "menu del dia", a lunchtime eating option whereby you get a selection of 3 plates for each course, and pay a fixed price of about 7-9 euros. Unbeatable for value, this is the entire working populations choice for lunchtime munchtime. It means the owners can buy a more limited supply of food and you can pretty much know it is fresh. A win win situation with the same quality but much lower prices. My favourite is L’apuntador - details below. Wonderful! (Restaurants review page for Barcelona in links)

Favorite Dish: Ask for the cake and say Scott reccommended it to you.
