With such beautiful weather, what could be better than a BBQ in Barcelona with some cervezas and loads of meat? Yes, I am a grilling fanatic! So in the last weeks I started looking for information on the internet, typing “barbacoa barcelona” “barcelona barbacoa” “grill barcelona”.
It took me a lot of time to find a good place, but at the end I did it! So, I’ve done all the hard work for you – just read on to find the best BBQ spots in BCN.
First of all, I’d like to tell you about the Spanish law, what we are allowed to do and what we’re not. Well, what I found is pretty damn confusing!
It seems to be illegal to have a BBQ in Barcelona within the city limits. In other words, you cannot set up a fire in the middle of Ciutadella Park, for example.
But for grills on your private balcony or terrace there is no restrictive law. But you might have to deal with your neighbors, that’s for sure!
I have no terrace, so I decided to take my friends to to a place which sounded really interesting: just out of the city, totally equipped, one of those Barcelona Barbacoa places where you just need to bring your food.
Well, we loved it here! Font Les Planes Restaurante y Merendero is a bar-restaurant, yes, but it’s also a merendero. They rent seats and grills (and wood and all the equipment, course) for a few euros per hour.It’s always open 9am to 7pm.
The location is amazing, it’s in Collserola Park, really well served by FGC trains from Catalunya and Gracia. It takes just 15-20 minutes to get there, at Les Planes stop, but you feel like you’re so far from the city! Collserola Park is beautiful and quiet, you get out of the train and find yourself surrounded by nature!
I haven’t tried this place yet, but it’s also easily reachable. It’s called Parc de la Trinidad and it’s a center for recreation with a BBQ and picnic zone. You can get there by Metro L1 “Trinitat Vella”.
It works exactly the same, you just need to bring your own food and drinks!
If you guys try out a different place not listed here, please leave me a feeback so we can add it to this blog!
