Estruch: Eating in front of the cathedral of Barcelona

If you visit Barcelona, a city celebrated for its rich history, breathtaking architecture, and bustling plazas, stop by Estruch for an excellent tapa, coffee, and much more! Avoid tourist traps and enjoy proper yummy food!


You are going to have a good time there. I’ve eaten at the Estruch more than once and simply love it.

The Estruch has existed since the 19th century. It is a café and restaurant located in front of the Cathedral in the Gothic neighbourhood: Avenida de la Catedral, 3, 08002 Barcelona.

It is a small but nice and cosy restaurant where you can have lunch with your friends, partner, or family. It also offers breakfasts, dinners, and lots of tapas and montaditos from Monday to Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m. But if you only want to have a coffee or drink something such as a glass of wine or a beer, you are more than welcome!

The restaurant has a beautiful terrace from which you can see Barcelona’s characterful Gothic monument.

In summer, it’s fantastic!

But if you go during winter, don’t worry about the cold. Hopefully, there are heaters outside, so you can also enjoy the views!

If you prefer being inside, there are tables and a bar area.

I love that the employees are amiable and that the dishes are just, mmm, DELICIOUS! I strongly recommend the classic hamburger (10,90 €) accompanied by sweet onion, chips and grilled vegetables. But there is not only meat; the Estruch offers tasty salads, pizzas, pasta and homemade desserts.


As a tourist, I know that eating or drinking something in front of a monument or the city’s main square usually means that prices are high. However, the Estruch is not so expensive, considering its location.

So, if you can come to Barcelona and want to take a breath and drink or eat something, go to the Estruch, a café and restaurant opposite one of the city’s most emblematic buildings.

You can visit their website here for more information about the restaurant.

I went the first time, and I loved it. Now it is your turn. It is a good restaurant with great views and tasty and typical food. And available in your pocket.

So, why wait any longer?

Embrace the charm of Barcelona most delightfully by visiting Estruch.

Whether you’re craving an authentic tapa experience, a casual coffee under the sun, or a cosy dinner amidst the Gothic beauty, Estruch promises to be a highlight of your trip.

With its rich history, welcoming atmosphere, and delectable cuisine, it stands out as a culinary gem in a city known for its vibrant food scene.

Don’t just take our word for it; make your next meal in Barcelona memorable at Estruch, where tradition meets taste.

See you there!
