You don’t have to go to out to the countryside to have a calçotada. You don’t even have to go beyond Collserola. You just have to get to this restaurant, located near Carmel park. They have more than ten set menus, including a calçotada menu that includes endless calçots, barbecued meats, a drink, bread and dessert. Their terrace is raised a few metres above the pavement, and is shaded with umbrellas and hundred-year-old trees. At some point during the meal, someone is bound to say, 'It doesn’t even seem like we’re in Barcelona.' Whoever does, pays.
One of the best things to do in Barcelona is grabbing a bite or a drink outside in a square or on a restaurant terrace. But what about during the colder months? Can you still enjoy people watching and a breath of crisp air? The answer is yes, and we'll tell you where you can have lunch or a nice vermouth and a snack when the winter sun is shining. We've also found some of the best-equipped spaces in the city where you can sit outside at night without catching your death of cold. Outdoor heaters and fellow outdoor types provide enough warmth to chase the chill away.
