A relaxing meal is a fitting end to a long day exploring the city. But Michelin-starred and luxury hotel restaurants are not the only options for romantic dining in Barcelona. The side streets are well-populated with charming bistros perfect for a romantic evening out. For an intoxicating blend of historic surroundings and superb cuisine, reserve a table at Casa Calvet (c/Casp, 48), an art nouveau restaurant housed in a building designed by Gaudí. For elegant Mediterranean-inspired dishes in a quiet and intimate setting, pay a visit to El Pla (c/Bellafilla, 5).
