GOING TO THE CHAPEL
Traditional with a modern twist is the best way to sum up La Bellvitja’s food and decor. Located by Plaça Sant Agusti in the remnants of a 15th-century chapel, it is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and some traditional Catalan food, with hints of Galician and Basque cuisine. The menu includes stews and braises, excellent for warming your cockles in the winter months, and there are also some inspiring vegetarian options, moving away from the typical bravas and tortilla. The impressive selection of red meats includes rabbit, pork, lamb and Basque ribeye steak. Menu aside, what makes this restaurant even more special is its dedication to supporting local farmers from around the country. Photographs of the suppliers and products adorn the walls of the restaurant, and many of the products are sourced from the neighbouring market, La Boquería. And, in case you needed an excuse to go for a gin and tonic, La Bellvitja also boasts a cocktail bar, which is available for hire for private functions and events.
