You can enjoy good gastronomy and a pleasant atmosphere on Barcelona’s terraces, but some terraces are better than others. Sometimes you do not want to dine next to a busy road with a lot of traffic, or on terrace with lots of pedestrians passing by checking out your plate. When you choose a terrace, you pick a quiet one, if possible with a little breeze, and when it also has good views, that’s even better. Here are some suggestions for warm summer nights that will arrive soon. The first one we can recommend is the terrace of restaurant Gallito, on the ground floor of the Hotel W, at the beach of Barceloneta. If you want to start enjoying summer early, this restaurant is next to the beach and has a quiet terrace. It surely is a good option; with tasty food, fresh products and a privileged location, what more could you possibly ask for? Would you like to try the best, typical Catalan food in the garden of an authentic farmhouse in the Collserola mountain range? If so, head to Can Cortés. This legendary, Catalan cuisine restaurant is wonderful if you want to try our gastronomy for the first time, but also if you are already a big fan. Its terrace, which is in the garden of the farmhouse, is located in the mountains of Collserola, a few kilometres from the metropolitan area. Peace and quiet during your meal is definitely guaranteed.

Another magnificent way to enjoy the best cuisine on a beautiful and peaceful terrace, is to make a reservation at El Jardí de l’Abadessa.
