Let’s start with our list of the best organic restaurants in Barcelona!
La Mare del Tano
La Mare del Tano is a popular restaurant located in Poblenou that offers a very interesting proposal, which you will surely love if you are used to organic food. It has its own vegetable garden, which is why it can guarantee the highest quality of the ingredients it uses in its cuisine.
One of the most outstanding features of its recipes is based on the fresh products it uses, which is why so many diners who love organic food choose to come here. In fact, it is quite possible that the vegetables they use are not even kept in the fridge when they go from the garden to the frying pan.
Puedes preguntar a su equipo cómo lo hacen, es decir, qué procesos emplean para cumplir con su filosofía sostenible. Y es que cuidan mucho este aspecto: desde el cultivo de sus propios ingredientes hasta el embalaje y la función de logística empleada para repartir sus productos.
Si echas un vistazo a sus redes sociales podrás ver algunos de sus platos más demandados, desde risotto de berenjena y calabacín hasta su crema de zanahoria. No olvides visitarlo, lo encontrarás en Carrera de la Ciudad de Granada, número 20.
Whether you consider yourself a potential vegetarian or just want to sample organic cuisine from time to time, you have to go to Teresa Carles. This restaurant offers a very special menu that has been inspired by traditional Catalan gastronomy, with an emphasis on signature cuisine.
These are recipes that will surprise you, not only due to their aroma and flavour, but also thanks to their appearance. This restaurant offers its customers sustainable food, giving them the possibility to choose between different salads, creams, soups, main courses and desserts. In addition, it is possible to combine them with the best drinks, sensational fresh-pressed juices such as kombucha.
Over time it has become a reference point in the city. Its chef is Teresa Carles Borrás, hence the name of the restaurant, who is a specialist in the preparation of healthy food and has many years of experience.
The establishment has been innovating in the world of healthy cuisine since the late 1970s. It has progressed and evolved so much that it now has an R&D team to obtain food that is distinguished by being conscious, healthy and of high quality.
If you have the chance, go to Carrer Jovellanos, number 2, and choose what you fancy from their wide selection of proposals, such as carnaroli risotto, green curry or jackfruit tacos.
The Organic restaurant in Barcelona is located at Junta de Comerç, number 11. It specialises in vegetarian cuisine, which is why it could not be missing from the list. Its organic philosophy consists of using all kinds of organic and local products in order to respect the environment around us.
The result is a very tasty cuisine that you can enjoy in a place where you will feel extremely comfortable. The subtle lighting and the appropriate separation of tables ensure that customers feel at ease.
Its complete dishes and menus will not leave you indifferent. They have all kinds of salads and recipes that you can’t miss, such as their vegetable pizza or their rice with pumpkin and walnuts.
In addition, until recently it was possible to share a large table with other diners to meet new people. And its location couldn’t be better, just a few metres from the Ramblas.
If you are looking for an interesting vegetarian restaurant in Barcelona with a young atmosphere, reasonable prices and balanced and varied cuisine with good products, this is the place for you.
Another of the best organic restaurants in Barcelona is located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, at Carrer Escudellers, 54, although you will also find another Vegetalia in the Born neighbourhood, in Fossar de les Moreres.
Its history dates back to 2007, when a company dedicated to producing and distributing organic products throughout Catalonia decided to open a business in Barcelona. Its success led to the opening of another location, which you will find in the historic centre of the city.
They use organic produce in their dishes. They also have a local vegetable garden, so that most of their creative recipes can be based on seasonal produce.
They offer various finger-licking specialities, such as lasagne, veggie burgers, vegetable curry and hummus. You can also enjoy their famous brunch at weekends and take advantage of their quality fruit and vegetables to eat well every day. They have a home-delivery service, so you can forget about cooking and enjoy their own organic cuisine on a regular basis.
You won’t find many restaurants like this one. Their challenge to create a healthy, natural and homemade cuisine that people would really enjoy was successfully met, and since then they have been able to enjoy gradual growth without losing their commitment to the environment and to people.
