Barcelona is known, and adored, for its food. From paella to croquettes, jamon to patatas bravas, the cuisine is one of the main attractions of the city. As for which restaurants to go to, however, you really can’t go wrong. The restaurants which you can’t book tend to be the best and most authentic ones, but if you’re looking for somewhere to mark a special occasion then ME Barcelona‘s Belbo Fasto restaurant has got to be on your list.
Elegant dining mixed with a nightclub-esque vibe is exactly how I’d describe it – so it’s spot on for those looking to get cosy on a date. Belbo Fasto combines traditional Spanish dining with Italian twists for an innovative result; think carpaccio, fresh fish and meat dishes, pastas and antipasti. With a resident DJ providing the entertainment, you and the other guests are guaranteed to be sending compliments to the staff all night.
The hotel’s second restaurant, Belbo Terrenal, is where you’ll find yourself starting the day each morning with a buffet-style breakfast that has everything you could ever crave. Fresh fruit? Check. Pastries? Yep. Omelettes ready to be made at your request? You bet. They even have a selection of mini donuts on offer for a sweet treat on your way out.
The hotel rooms themselves are spacious, modern, clean and comfortable, which is everything you could want from somewhere to lay your head. The mini bar is anything but mini, too, equipped with spirits to make your favourite cocktails, snacks and soft drinks for a pre or post-dinner refreshment.
Myself and my partner stayed for a total of three nights, which we felt was ample time to see the sights we had planned, visit the beach and even go shopping (you can’t stop me from browsing a Zara if I spot one). The staff were more than friendly and provided personal finishing touches wherever possible, which is something I always appreciate wherever I go. We honestly didn’t want to leave and are already considering our next trip back – the true sign of a good time. Thank you for an unforgettable stay, ME Barcelona.
