Heads up: as we live in uncertain times due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s always best to double check that the restaurant you’ve got your eye on is up and running, and that they’re serving your beloved roast this year (maybe even through delivery!)
If you’re living in Barcelona, staying here for a longer break, or are just spending the Christmas period in the city, don’t miss out on the best part of the day… Christmas Dinner! Here at AB Apartment Barcelona we LOVE typical Spanish and Catalan food, but we’re also a big fan of the traditional Christmas Dinner…
So where can you find a place that offers a full Christmas meal experience, then look no further… Here are our favourite places to eat a Christmas Dinner in Barcelona…

Don’t fancy roast turkey this year? If you’re happy to take a break from the traditional and go to somewhere more Navidad than Christmas, why not head to…
A timeless classic here in Barcelona, Botafumeiro is known for its traditional Spanish cuisine, mouth-watering seafood dishes, and unforgettable paella, a menu that has been putting them at the top of the city’s gastro scene for four decades now.
The folks at Botafumeiro will be open on Christmas Day, giving you the chance to eat Spanish on the 25th and wish those around you a ¡Feliz Navidad!
Botafumeiro can be found on Gran de Gracia, 81.
Another traditional choice can be found this Christmas in Barcelona, it the Tragaluz. This wonderful restaurant is found in Eixample, just off Passeig de Gràcia. This restaurant, despite being expensive, is insanely popular around Christmas time and is guaranteed to give you an unforgettable Christmas dinner in Barcelona. Here, you will be able to eat meals that are sourced from local Catalan produce and all have a traditional feel to it. Some of the dishes on their Christmas Day menu that you must try are the Escudella Soup, which is as traditional as it gets. A noodle soup with roasted meat and veg stewed together is simply delightful!
Here is ideal to spend Christmas day at, eating great food in a wonderful location. Although the Christmas Day menu is €100 per person, it is the time of generosity and who better to be generous to than yourself and loved ones!
From everyone at AB Apartment Barcelona, we wish you a very Happy Christmas whatever country you’re celebrating the festive season in this year… See you in 2021!
