Enjoy an Intimate Evening in Barcelona's Most Romantic Restaurants

Barcelona doesn't lack when it comes to romance. The city is strewn with beautiful buildings, a stunning seaside boardwalk and most of all, plenty of charming, tasty and intimate places to dine. The city's older areas such as the Gothic Quarter, Born, Raval and Barceloneta neighborhoods not only have some excellent options, but the restaurants are often situated in out of the way courtyards, and little patios and terraces, tucked away from the main streets. El Jardi, is situated in a garden and lights up during the evening, making you forget where you are. El Salon is another extremely romantic restaurant, especially during the summer when you can eat on the terrace, which is surrounded by the old Roman Wall. As you get into the Eixample neighborhood, there are some very trendy, new gastro bars, all of which are romantic with delicious menus. And if you're into wine as well as food, there are some excellent wine and tapas bars which are exceptionally romantic, as most of them only have a few seats, so it's quiet and enjoyable for either just a few drinks or dinner as well. And then there's Barcelona's wonderful boardwalk where you can dine overlooking the Mediterranean sea; it's hard to beat that.
