Dining with Children?
Barceloneta's beachfront paella specialists are great favorites for Sunday lunches, with children free to get up and run, skate, cycle, or generally race up and down the boardwalk while their parents linger over brandies and coffee. Els Pescadors (Pl. de Prim 1, Port Olímpic 93/225–2018 Closed Mon. Poblenou), a seafood restaurant, has a lovely terrace opening onto a little square that is handy for children letting off steam.
For sandwiches on the go, served on fresh, warm bread—an inexpensive and respectable snack—try the Pans & Company stores all over town. Children will always gobble the Catalan staple pa amb tomaquet (toasted bread with olive oil and squeezed tomato), and most cafés, bars, and terraces can whip up a plate on short notice. And for dessert, Barcelona's ubiquitous ice-cream parlors and vendors are another favorite.
