To say that the city of Barcelona is all about food and drink is a careless understatement. Unlike cities like Paris or London where affordable and good food is a rare gem, Barcelona sets out to fill your tummy without emptying your wallet. I was skeptical of that theory when I walked into Paco Meralgo. Recommended by my foodie friend, Sarah, I expected the food to be awesome but I was also prepared to pay a pretty penny for it.
The decor of the restaurant is simple, clean and yet tasteful. They have an upstairs dining area for larger parties – equipped with a long wooden table and short wooden chairs that look like they were plucked out of the Seven Dwarfs’ home. The wait staff is extremely friendly and patient – things do get busy and rowdy after 8pm, which is when the Spanish start getting hungry, like New Yorkers.
It’s a definitely must visit if you should go to Barcelona. The bill for about 7 of us (and mind you we ordered a lot of food + wine) came out to about €280.
