Lunch at a Barcelona Waterfront Restaurant

One of our many goals this year has been to explore the best Barcelona beach restaurants. We’ve been to two within the city limits — Agua and Bestial — each of which offers fresh seafood and mediterranean fare alongside splendid views of the sea. Those city restaurants are likewise fun since you see the passersby strolling along the boardwalk, showing it all off and taking it all in. Already, I have so many fun memories of dinners there while the boys played soccer on the beach.

Last weekend, we ventured outside of the city to Garraf to try La Cúpula, a mediterranean sea-side restaurant which, to me, is so over-the-top gorgeous that it speaks of Greece (a place to which I’ve never been but which I’ve seen in the movies).

Here’s the view of the beach from our table! The kids wandered down immediately and spent more time playing on the sand than they did eating at the table!

Here you see the kids table. Five couples had come bringing their little ones, who ate paella among other dishes. That was a new delicacy for my kiddos, but they at least sampled a few bites. How sophisticated, right?

And introducing the adults’ table. Many dishes, bottles of wine and other things (!) were consumed during a meal that lasted nearly four hours. I had fun chatting with some of my new French friends and meeting a terrific woman who grew up in Texas and now lives here. It’s fun to learn about what brought people to Barcelona.

Europe has been a bit of a different world for us. People tend to take the time to talk, to share a meal, to enjoy the view. It’s been good for our family to have that time to just be together, exploring new things together and enjoying them. Hope that you get that time with you families, as well.

Thanks so much for reading and check back in next week for more fun content.
