Party Earth Review Kitschy tourist traps abound along the famous Las Ramblas stretch, but Cafè de l'Òpera – in business since the 1920s – isn’t just another overpriced coffee shop. True, folks might pony up an extra Euro or two for items here, but the Art Nouveau-style interior usually offers enough free tables for anyone who wants to take ... more

Barcelona Historic Restaurants Overview

Cafè de l’Òpera - Coffee Shop | Historic Bar | Historic Restaurant in Barcelona

Since hosting the Olympics in 1992, Barcelona has catapulted itself into the conversation as one of Europe’s trendiest, and as a result, most visited cities. Although the unique identity of the Catalonian capital is fraught with alternative artists and a strong independent counter-culture, it’s the juxtaposition of that distinctiveness against the backdrop of 2,000 plus years of history that keeps people enthralled with Barcelona. Luckily for foodies, Barcelona’s recent transformation has rejuvenated many of its historic restaurants and left them as popular as ever.

Barri Gótic’s 4Gats is one of the city center’s most famous historic restaurants. A restaurant that one might expect to find in Paris at the turn of the 20th century, 4Gats has managed to pay homage to the Parisian restaurants of which it was inspired all the while making it decidedly Spanish in true Catalonian fashion. Famous for being a favorite of Pablo Picasso, and more recently as a restaurant in Woody Allen’s Vicky Christina Barcelona, 4Gats is a must for people looking for historic restaurants in Barcelona.

Hidden amongst the tourist traps on La Rambla, Café de l’Opera is an unassuming venue that is easy to dismiss. Open for the better part of a century, this Art Nouveau decorated restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy tapas, cold beer, or even pretend like the 1920s never ended with a cigar and a glass of cognac.
