Healthy food movements
Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, slow food, raw food, organic. Healthy food movements and diets are becoming more and more popular, despite all the fast food and pre-made food that is available to us. And eating healthy definitely doesn’t mean eating boring, tasteless food!
Of course you shouldn’t miss out on great Spanish food when visiting Barcelona. But if you need a break from paella, tapas and such, there is a great choice of other cuisines. One of those being vegetarian and organic cuisine. So here is our pick of restaurants and cafes where healthy and delicious vegetarian food is on the menu. For everyone who loves good food, vegetarian or not.

What more could you wish for than fresh, organic produce straight from the garden onto your plate? At Vegetalia this is exactly what you will get. This restaurant was one of the first vegetarian restaurants in Barcelona. It opened its doors in 2007. Once their healthy cuisine became popular they started their very own veggie garden and opened two more restaurants. Not only do they support a healthy lifestyle with vegetarian, homemade and natural foods, they also look to protect the environment and respect the earth. We love their restaurant in Raval. It’s located on a tranquil little square, a lovely place to relax. Try their lunch menu from Monday to Friday!
