The Best Michelin-Starred Restaurants in Barcelona

By | 18 October, 2021 | 0 comments

Catalan cuisine is widely recognised the world over for its high‑quality produce and typically healthy Mediterranean diet – with influences from Italian and Greek cuisine – giving it an excellent international reputation. More specifically, you’ll find proof of its popularity in the sheer number of Michelin-starred restaurants throughout Barcelona – 29 in total in 2021, six up on the previous year.

A Michelin star is just about the highest accolade any restaurant can aspire to, representing the greatest recognition not just of the venue’s great cuisine, but also the interior decoration, service and location. A symbol of quality where the most demanding of tastebuds can always rely on stepping into an oasis of flavour, aromas and colour as part of a gastronomic adventure to stimulate all five of your senses. Below are some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Barcelona you can try on your next visit.

Found at 1 Avenida del Tibidabo, welcome to ABaC. A restaurant famous for its haute cuisine and the reputation of its head chef, Jordi Cruz. In their fourth consecutive year and with three Michelin stars under their belt, the team offer a wide range of Catalan dishes to choose from, either à la carte or as part of two tasting menus. High-quality produce with a fun, avant-garde and somewhat edgy style.


Located at 259 Calle Mallorca, you’ll happen upon a true gastronomic experience in Barcelona from Martín Berasategui, although the genius behind this restaurant is really Paolo Casagrande, one of his apprentices. With three Michelin stars, together with ABaC, it is the most decorated culinary destination in the entire city, both the only places in town to earn the highest possible scores.


One of the most renowned chefs in the whole of Spain, Carme Ruscalleda heads this restaurant at 38 Paseo de Gracia along with her son, Raül Balam. With a menu based on seasonal produce, they have two Michelin stars to their name.

Hoja Santa

An authentic Mexican kitchen from Albert Adrià and Paco Méndez at 54 Avenida de Mistral, they first earned their Michelin star back in 2016 and have kept hold of it ever since. Traditional Aztec dishes together with the fantastic skills of these particular chefs have certainly won over the red-book jury.

Via Veneto

One of the oldest restaurants still going, first opening its doors in 1967, and which claims to have one of the best wine cellars in the city, why not pair a wine-tasting evening with some of the best Michelin-star quality Catalan cuisine in town… Behind this landmark restaurant is the Monje family, who strive to lend a unique style to every single one of their creations.


These are just a few options when it comes to finding a great restaurant in Barcelona with a Michelin star. And remember, you can always trust the little red book for a tour of the most avant-garde and cutting-edge dining options in town.
