On this page I’m sharing the best restaurants in Sant Antoni, Barcelona. Sant Antoni is a small but wonderful neighborhood just West of Raval. This small triangle shaped neighborhood, in the West of the city center of Barcelona houses some great restaurants and bars. On this page I’m sharing my favorite food spots in Sant Antoni.
Braseros & Asoc.
Braseros & Asoc. is a wonderful restaurant in Sant Antoni. The first time we just stumbled upon it and we’ve been back several times ever since. Braseros & Asoc. has a stylish interior with a romantic touch. They serve high quality tapas dishes and fish and meat mains. For vegetarians they’ve got a delicious pasta as a main. But we often just munch on tapas all evening long when we’re there. Try their Patatas Bravas with black aioli sauce and leave some room for dessert.
Cafe Cometa is a wonderful coffeeshop/lunchroom. It’s a creative little cafe with lots of art on the walls, and a popular spot for digital nomads. They’ve got a good lunch menu (including vegetarian and vegan options), tasty coffees and juices. Cafe Cometa is women owned and LGBTQ+ friendly. In general it has a very relaxed atmosphere which makes it a great place for a food stop in Sant Antoni.
Paradero is a great place for a good coffee and brunch. The staff is exceptionally friendly and the dishes on the menu are classics with an original twist. I went for the avocado toast with poached egg for example, and that had pickled onions and tortilla chips. They also have healthy bowls, bagels and sandwiches. And you can save room for dessert because they’ve got many sweets like brownies and carrot cake. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options are clearly marked on the menu.
Ruar Streetfood offers some really tasty hamburgers. They’ve got several different kinds, and also a delicious vegetarian one. If you’re really hungry you can order some loaded fries as well. And for dessert they’ve got Brigaderos; Brazilian sweet chocolate balls.
They’re also open for lunch when they have great sandwiches.
Federal Cafe has three locations in Barcelona, one of them is in Sant Antoni. This location has a lovely big balcony so you can enjoy your lunch outside. The menu is inspired by Australian lunchrooms with good coffees and lovely toasts. This avocado toast is one of my favorites (you can add a poached egg if you want) and their sandwich with halloumi cheese is also a great option.
Bar Calders is a great bar for a drink with some tapas. They’ve got nice wines, beers and cocktails. Ans dome great finger food to go with it like nachos and hummus. It has a nice terrace for sunny days as well. It has a very relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere. A real neighborhood classic.
