Barcelona Pick of the week 10-16 May 2010

MACBA Exposition 22

Restaurant Arenal
Restaurant Arenal is located directly at the beach of Barcelona (near Hospital del Mar), but this is certainly no low-budget beachbar. It´s an elegantly furnished restaurant with beautiful views on the beach and sea. When the weather is good, the terrace is opened, which is a recommendation for the evenings as well (allthough the price is 10% higher). Here you can enjoy Mediterranean cuisine filled with fresh products daily.
Reserve by internet on weekdays for a discount on your dinner.
