This is the first halal restaurant that I went to in Barcelona. It’s a nicely set-up place serving Moroccan food, just a short walk from La Rambla.
The restaurant’s name is Bar Restaurante Mediterraneo, located at Carrer de l'Hospital, 101.
As we just arrived from Madrid that morning and went straight to explore Barcelona, by the time we stopped for lunch we were already very hungry. So we went for full course of soup, main dish and dessert. It was a good call as the food was great and the service was excellent.
Inside the restaurant, waiting for our food. It was winter, which was why I was wrapped-up in a cocoon.
Here comes the soup! This is harihara, a type of Moroccan soup.
This is bisara, soup made of peas.
Some pickled fruits as appetizers.
Ah, the main dish is here! This is pollo con patatas @ chicken with potatoes.
Tajin de ternera @ tajine of calf. It was really good!
The halal sign.
That’s the place from the outside. That little boy is the owner’s son. Such a cutie!
Here’s the place on Google map:

It’s easy to find. From La Rambla, get onto Carrer de l'Hospital and go straight all the way (ignoring several junctions to your left and right). After about 10 minutes walk, you’ll find the restaurant on your left.
