Unique bars & restaurants in Spain & Portugal

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in Barcelona, Madrid and central Portugal this winter and are looking for truly unique restaurant / bar experiences in those areas. Price isn't necessarily an object, but we're not looking for fancy.

What do I mean by "truly unique?" I mean like the tiny price-fixed restaurant in a cave in Paris. The yakitori bars that just appear under the tracks at dusk in Ginza. The crazy food trucks in Los Angeles. Hebberoy's crazy restaurants in Portland. Or even those tiny hole-in-the-wall places that are famous among locals. Real dining/cultural experiences.

Here are three we're already planning to hit:

BARCELONA
Inopia: http://www.barinopia.com/ (the video sold us)

Cuines Santa Caterina: http://www.cuinessantacaterina.com/

MADRID
La Terraza del Casino in Madrid (molecular gastronomy): http://www.casinodemadrid.es/sp/gastronomia/rest_terraza/index.htm

p.s. We LOVE tapas & wine and are fairly adventurous in terms of what we'll eat.
