Best terraces in Barcelona to alfresco dine-in

With the arrival of good weather, the desire to spend time outdoors in the fresh air grows. We have compiled a list of the best secret terraces in the city – oases in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Discover them:

Green Spot Diagonal

Green Spot Diagonal is one of the most stylish terraces in the city. Designed like a cozy 1970s house with a porch next to a pine tree garden, it had to make it on this list. The restaurant has one of the best vegetarian gastronomies in the city. Their motto is “Enjoy vegetables without being a vegetarian. Or yes.” The result is fresh, cozy, modern, relaxed, friendly, and cheerful. Don’t miss their vegetable soups.

(Av, Diagonal, 593).

Gala Restaurant

Gala Restaurant is already a well-known secret in the city, and for good reason. The restaurant offers high-level gastronomy in a very original space. In fact, there is no other restaurant quite like it in Barcelona. The terrace, with a fountain in the shape of a nose, takes us on a journey into surrealism. Don’t miss their open prawn omelet

(Provença 286-288).

The Hoxton Terrace

The Poblenou district boasts one of Barcelona’s most creative and trendy neighbourhoods, so it’s no wonder The Hoxton opened here last year. Located within walking distance of the beach, it has a striking rooftop with a pool, Balinese hammocks, and views of the Sagrada Familia.

If we focus on the Rooftop, we find Tope, a Mexican bar and taqueria with a menu of homemade tacos and tortillas that will surprise you with new proposals and DJs that will liven up the weekend evenings. Don’t miss their frozen margarita!

(Av. Diagonal, 205).

Casa Bonay

The Casa Bonay hotel is one of the city’s landmarks with a bright and welcoming terrace. The Chiringuito, the terrace open to the public, is also its restaurant where they offer delicious local tapas and their famous charcoal barbecue where you can find delicious dishes, all accompanied by a good cocktail. Don’t miss the charcoal-grilled octopus

(Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 700).


Chandigarh Café

Chandigarh Café, inspired by the colourful city in northern India, is a terrace full of plants, good music, and a relaxed atmosphere. Far off the beaten track in Barcelona, it offers tasty, colourful, and delicious food

(Av. D’Esplugues 105).

Chez Coco

Chez Coco is a French bistro that loves chicken, with a colourful and cosy indoor garden that fills your senses. The terrace is dotted with greenery, with central tables flanked by an infinity curved sofa – the decorator’s idea for peace and tranquility. Don’t miss the petit poulet!

(Av. Diagonal 465).
