Barceloneta has undergone many changes over the years, yet Can Solé still stands tall. This 113-year-old establishment has become a symbol of the seaside neighbourhood, and for good reason. The restaurant is popular for its flavoursome rice-based dishes and traditional seafood plates, served in an intimate setting.

This cultural centre dates back to 1761 and is one of the oldest examples of Barceloneta’s original architecture. The building now serves as a meeting place for neighbours, as well as an exhibition space to promote the area’s heritage and history beyond its popular beaches.

The smell of seafood will draw you into this organic restaurant, part of the ‘km 0’ movement that promotes the use of local products. The fish are from Barceloneta fishermen, the vegetables are grown in the restaurant’ sown allotment, and the menu varies frequently according to season. “More than a job, it’s a philosophy of life,” said Jordi Limon, one of the owners, referring to their commitment to ecological food.

With just two tables inside, the size of this corner bar can be deceiving. But don’t let it fool you. The bodega, which opened in 1950, is packed with over 70 craft beers and plenty of wines. After all, Fermin was originally just a store where locals could stock up on alcohol provisions. Current owner Roger Vall Serrat added the bar component almost three years ago and now people can get their fix of vermouth over fresh tapas and soft rock tunes in this casual spot.

Owner Gabriela Morales opened this gourmet shop last January in a former charcutería. Now, she sells exclusive artisanal products from Catalunya, makes vermouth nearly every Sunday and caters to each client’s needs. “A lot of Italians live in the neighbourhood, so I always stock products that are popular with them,” Gabriela explained.
