Cheap eats & restaurants

Casa Jaime

In the heart of Gayxample, a budget favourite among the boys.

Bar Celta Pulpería

It ain’t fancy but it’s authentic, inexpensive and very good, rare for Barcelona’s tourist areas.

El Bierzo a Tope

No pretense here, just hearty, inexpensive grandma cooking in Gayxample.

Rekons Urgell

Cheap, tasty and filling, wine and dine merrily but humbly in Sant Antoni.


Quality burgers, a full drinks list and proper table service right next to Gayxample? Roundly approved.

Negro Carbón

Perhaps not quite as popular as Kiosko Burger, but cosier, more laid back and still well juicy and tasty.

Doble Zer00

Not exactly the place for a Barcelona show-off date, but come here for excellent value sushi.

Bangkok Café

Finally – a Thai in Barcelona where the chilli pepper heat-indicators actually mean something.

Kiosko Burger

By no means the only – or the cheapest – place in town for a decent bun burger but none come more popular than this retro-inspired looker.


The classic ham and cheese bikini is on the menu here, but this is no ordinary sandwich shop: Gourmet ingredients, vintage wines and a classy eco-consciousness.


The minimalist design of this gourmet ice cream parlour looks a bit suspect in this neighbourhood. And if you’re watching your waistline, then you’d be right to be cautious.

Flamant Restaurant

Sometimes the setting is more important than the food and that's the premise here.

La Xina

Lushly designed, reflecting the light from the fire dragon lantern snaking across the room, and serving up immaculate dim sum and high quality regional Chinese dishes.

Flash Flash

Like stepping into the 70s, order an omelette - this being a tortilleria, and observe the Almodóvar-esque señoras.

El Berro

Known as the “Gay Diner” among locals, boys are lured to this corner spot by the dirt cheap evening set menu and even cheaper platos combinados.


Italian-inspired dishes for boys on a date, and those hoping to secure one at the nearby bars.
