TOP 10 restaurants terraces in Barcelona

After a day of heavy rain the sun is shining down on Barcelona again. Its already end of October – but still warm enough to enjoy beautiful days like today having lunch on the terrace of a restaurant. Barcelona is famous for the many sunny squares and terraces, like the well known strip with restaurants and bars at the Port Olympic at the seaside. If you are visiting Barcelona for the first time it might be difficult to find some of the best terraces. Even if you are familiar with the city, there are many hidden gems which you might not know about. This week we have been out to capture some of our favorite restaurants with terrace for you. Here you will find a selection of places which we prefer to enjoy a good lunch, grab a little bite or to simply get a moment of tranquility in the city centre. Hopefully there will be many more sunny days during this winter to enjoy the terraces and maybe you will be able to visit some of them yourself!
