(English) Barcelona – a veg-friendly city

By | 3 January, 2017 | 0 comments

In March 2016, Barcelona was declared to be the top city in the world as vegan and vegetarian friendly. As well as promoting the health benefits of having a diet full of vegetables and less animal products, Barcelona has created a guide for vegetarians in Barcelona called BCNvegPoint, which is aimed at local vegan and vegetarian companies, and has created the idea of meat-free Mondays. Many restaurants in Barcelona have been serving vegetarian dishes for a long time using organic products in the hope of encouraging healthy cooking.

The local council in Barcelona has declared the city as being veg-friendly, hoping to highlight the social benefits and the advantages of a meat-free diet for the environment and health. Thanks to the amount of vegetarian or vegan restaurants in Barcelona, a meat-free diet doesn’t mean that you can’t eat out. Below is a list of the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Barcelona:


Located in the street Pintor Fortuny nº25 close to Las Ramblas, this restaurant was one of the pioneers in vegetarian cooking in Barcelona. Founded in 1980, Biocenter is renowned for its home-cooked food, its cosy atmosphere and its high quality dishes. Ideal for groups.
