The fragrant scent of sea-salt air, a convivial, bustling atmosphere and authentic Catalan cuisine comprise the experience at Salamanca. Located in the Olympic quarter overlooking the Mediterranean, the menu is primarily seafood-based; think shellfish plates and Galician fish dishes. With seating so vast it can accommodate several hundred diners, the eatery ensures it sates gastronomes of all stripes, also offering its fair share of barnyard animals, from pig to cow.
On the terrace, a scattering of large tables literally groan under the weight of substantial platters of paella (think hearty rice-and-fish stew), making Salamanca prime real estate for large parties of family and friends. No quintessential Barcelona dining experience would be complete without a sangria and sweet treats, such as tarta de whiskey or pineapple drenched in crema Catalana. A hang for locals and tourists alike, dodge the freshly sunburned masses and you’ll be in good company.
