One of the island’s only upscale Spanish restaurants, La Vinoteca Barcelona is an attractive destination for small bites and tapas plates, or to sample a full-on degustation menu. The food is flavourful and expertly prepared, using high-quality ingredients, and the modern venue is stylishly decorated and generally buzzing. In particular, it serves some of the best patatas bravas we’ve tried, plus an excellent seafood paella that’s worth splashing out for. The outdoor garden area, which it shares with sister restaurant Café Amsterdam, is also a highlight in cooler weather. Head there on a Saturday, too, and you can enjoy a lovely brunch with a medley of Spanish and international breakfast and lunch options, as well as family-friendly entertainment, too.
