Going animal-free in Barcelona has never been so easy, with a growing number of restaurants and tapas bars offering tasty, healthy and guilt-free vegan options. Whether you want to stick to classic Spanish flavours or are looking for something a little more adventurous, these are the best places for vegan tapas in Barcelona.
A play on the name of the seafront neighbourhood in which it is located, La Barceloneta, BarCeloneta Sangria Bar is a completely vegan Spanish tapas bar offering animal-free versions of all the classic Spanish tapas. Try vegan paella, traditional Catalan escalivada on toast (grilled vegetables marinated in olive oil), but also vegan burgers and a wide choice of raw vegan desserts. Located just a few metres from the beach front, BarCeloneta is also a popular spot for a drink in the evenings.
Open for lunchtimes only, Petit Brot is a cosy eatery located in a charming corner of El Raval, not far from the MACBA art museum. The restaurant specialises in organic, raw, vegan cuisine and privileges locally sourced and sustainably grown produce. This is the place to go if you want guilt-free food that’s going to give your body the detox it needs. For an extra boost, grab one of the cold-pressed ‘living’ juices, made with sprouts, grains and seeds, as well as seasonal fruit and veg.
