There are loads of romantic spots to discover in different neighbourhoods. Barcelona is a lively city with a variety of restaurants, romantic spots and areas to go explore with your loved one.

Restaurants

I love food, the best thing is a great dinner with some wine, I am always looking for new experiences. See my favourite romantic restaurants:

La rita restaurant, lovely restaurant very romantic in the city center and great value, around 20-25 euros per person, good food.

La Rita: Calle Arago, 279 08007 Barcelona

I am totally in love of Thai Gardens, it's a thai restaurant with a great atmosphere, a decoration full of natural flowers, wood and water fountains. The food is amazing, very well prepared, we normally ask for the set menu, a variety of dishes seafood, meat and fish along with curries, rice and sauces. You can't miss it.

Thai Gardens: Diputació, 273 08007 Barcelona

Gaudí

I find Gaudí buildings very romantic, I might be only my thing but I think of them as a part of nature, full of live and colours, so going for a walk through Passeig de Gràcia and spending some time to look at them and understand the design and shape is a good thing to do when going with your partner if you are into architecture.

You have the opportunity to eat in one of Gaudí's buildings: Casa Calvet. There is a restaurant in it, I have never done though but I have received very good feedback. It is a catalan cuisine restaurant but posh style, no less than 40 euros per person.

Gothic Area

This is one of my favorite areas in Barcelona, tiny streets that used to be the heart of Barcelona in medieval times. All streets have the name of some profession: potter, tinker, jeweller etc... Now all area has become a trendy area of the city full of artisan shops that want to keep the tradition of medieval times.

Gothic churched such as Santa Maria del Mar in Born area, Barcelona's Cathedral and many others remind us of our past.

Barcelona at night

When dark is coming Barcelona changes and it dresses up as a party lady and so they do her buildings. All monuments get colorful lights and are visible in Barcelona's skyline. I recommend you to go for a walk at night to see Sagrada Família, Agbar Tower, city center with Gaudí Monuments and the Cathedral etc...

Also it is a good time to go for some cocktails in the city center. My recommendations are; Milano, Kahiki and Casablanca.

All three of them very romantic, Milano '20s atmosphere with Jazz concerts and great cocktails. Kahiki is a hawai cocktail bar, with nice cocktails served with special jars and super long straws.

And last but not least Casablanca is a very well known Cocktail Bar in Sagrada Família's area with sofas, very intimate and they also have good food to eat along with a cocktail. I love about Casablanca the bowls of pop corn they bring with your order.


Montjuic and Miramar

If you want to see Barcelona's skyline Miramar view point is your place or El Alcalde viewpoint. You can go at night too to see all monument lights in Barcelona. It is a very romantic spot and there are restaurants as well in the area to look at the skyline.

Great part of the city to breath deeply as is full of green forest, also a good oportunity to visit Montjuic Castle and do a tour in Poble Espanyol.

For more info see the Panoramic Tour in Montjuic I have done.
