Oh boy you are in for a treat if you can get to Carrier Verdi in the Gracia area of Barcelona. This is a big student area full of cafes, boutiques and amazing ethnic restaurants from Lebonon, India, Pakistan, Greece, etc. full of delicious vegetarian dishes. This was our 'hood when we were in Barcelona.

One of our favorite restaurants on this street was Restaurante Zeinab Beriruti at Carrier Verdi 31 (Gracia) Telephono:93 237 88 70 (Lebonese Cuisine). There is a metro stop just 5 minutes away. I don't think you need reservations. Allow some time to browse the shops on this street. It is a wonderful, less touristed part of Barcelona. Check out the authentic neighborhood bodega and stop for a glass of wine from a barrel. (NY Times article "Surfacing, A Beloved Corner of Barcelona." can be found online at NY Times Travel.)

Hello!!

I agree, you should give Carrer Verdi in Gracia a visit, and as a Lebanese living in Barcelona, Yes restaurant zeinab is a place where you can enjoy a good meal :)

I know another veggie restaurant located in the city center, en el barri Gotic Carred d'avinyo with carrer dels escudellers you should give it a try its delicious!

Hi

You have chosen a great area of Barcelona to stay in, its beautiful with lots to see and do. As for vegetarian food here are some ideas.

For great takeaway food if you are in a hurry or want a bite to eat on the go, then Maoz is perfect. It can be found on La Rambla very close to Boqueria Market and sells delicious falafel filled pitas with lots of veggie additions to choose from. There are usually some great deals on and it is very reasonably priced.

At the top of La Rambla (Catalunya Metro end) is Pizza Mazarno, the Spanish version of Pizza Express. They won't mind you mixing and matching some of the vegetarian ingredients on the menu, and you can quite easily customise an interesting pasta or pizza. There is also a Pizza Mazarno outside La Sagrada Famila where you can sit outside.

Some other options are:

Sesamo - (Carrer de Sant Antoni Abat 52, 08001 Barcelona - turn off L'Hopital or Carme street off La Rambla and they merge to become Sant Antoni, Sesamo is near the end on the right) by far the best of all the vegetarian Barcelona restaurants. Non veggies should be quite happy to eat here too. Describes itself as a gourmet vegetarian. Lots of interesting options, beautifully presented. Closed on Tuesdays and Sunday lunchtimes. Only about 34 covers so call and book. Menu changes daily. Around 5 € for a starter, 12 € for a main, 4 € for a pudding. Lots of organic choices for wine and an organic beer. Vegan options clearly marked and all yogurt, milk and eggs that are used are organic. A good 10 min walk from La Rambla!

Juicy Jones (Carrer Cardenal Casañas 7, Ciutat Vella, 08002, Barcelona ) is a vegan cafe/juice bar - they have excellent food and serve salads, tapas such as tofu, and baguettes. They do bigger meals of thali (fantastically yummy curries, rice, chutney, poppadum etc) and a dish of the day. Turn off La Rambla opposite Euskal restaurant then turn right and it is a few doors down. Don't be in a rush though, the service is very laid back, and customer is not king! There is a larger branch on the other side of La Rambla up L'hopital street.

Govindas (Plaça de la Vila de Madrid, 4-5, Ciutat Vella, 08002, Barcelona ) is just off La Rambla. Behind Citadenes, opposite Decathlon. It is a Hindu vegetarian restaurant that as well as yummy Indian food sells pizzas, a salad bar and a few other non-indian options. They only serve non-alcoholic wine and beer. Most food is vegan - just ask as they speak good English. Closed on Sun and Mon.

Vegetalia In the heart of the Gothic region, 5 mins walk from La Rambla. Good if you are keen on seitan and tofu. Only any good if you don't mind oily, salty food.

Hope you have a great time in Barcelona & find some delicious food!

To piggy-back on this question, do typical restaurants have non-meat options that are easily identified? (So, not a veggie stew cooked on chicken stock, for example)?...Thank you!

El Buffet Verd at Roger de Lluria 134, near Diagoanal, is a great, inexpensive choice. Probably only open for lunch and only Mon-Fri.

Great salad bar, soups, choice of main courses and dessert. I used to live in Barcelona and was so glad tnat it was still there in July. I'll be back in Oct.

Thank you so much. You've opened up a world of options that I didn't know existed in Barcelona. Will definitely try some of these places. My vegetarian hubby will be happy.

Since no one mentioned FRESC CO, I will. This is a nation wide chain of vegetarian buffet restaurants with many outlets in Barcelona. The first one opened in Barcelona in 1997. Very reasonable. (cheap) Open for lunch and dinner. Everything is generally good, except the frozen yogurt.
