The Barri Gotic, its Catalan name (Gothic Quarter), is no doubt the true heart of the city. In its labyrinth of winding streets and asymmetric squares which goes from the famous Las Ramblas to the sea at ‘Drassanes’ you can find some really good Tapas places and restaurants.. here our recommendations: 4_gats_barcelona
ELS QUATRE GATS
Famous for being one of Picasso’s old watering holes, Els Quatre Gats is a classic that still enjoys the patronage of upper class Barcelona society. Good quality food served by very formal waiting staff in a charming venue, but the history of the place is what sets it apart.
Price: Expensive
Address: Calle Montsió 3 bis (Metro L1- L3, Catalunya)
Telephone: +34 93 302 41 40
VILDSVIN L’ANTIGA TAVERNA
Elegant restaurant with a marble and polished wood interior. A good option for those who prefer international food. Oysters are the house speciality.
Price: Medium / Expensive
Address: Calle Ferran 38 (Metro L3, Liceu)
Telephone: +34 93 317 94 07
plaza_reial_barcelona
LES QUINZE NITS 
Large restaurant, with terrace, serving good quality modern mediterranean food at reasonable prices in the centre of the Barrio Gótico. It is not possible to book a table and, in the evening, long queues often form up outside the restaurant.
Price: Medium
Address: Plaça Reial 6 (Metro L3, Liceu)
Telephone: +34 93 317 30 75
los_caracoles_barcelona
LOS CARACOLES
Voluminous restaurant whose name means “snails” in Spanish. Unsurprisingly, snails are a speciality, but so also is spit-roasted chicken, slowly turning on the grills in front of you. There is also a full menu of Catalan and Spanish dishes. The Plaza Reial apartments are in the same building as Los Caracoles.
Price: Medium
Address: Calle Escudellers 14 (Metro L3, Liceu)
Telephone: 93 302 31 85
Website: Los Caracoles

Juicy Jones – vegetarian and vegan food in Barcelona

Vegetarian and vegan friends in Barcelona!!! I know it is quite difficult for you to find a place to eat properly in jamon-loving spain. Therefore I am even happier to introduce you.... JUICY JONES - a vegan and vegetarian restaurant in Barcelona!!! Juicy Jones vegan vegetarian restaurant Barcelona
In Juicy Jones you get really good, tasty and healthy food without any animal products.
To be honest: I am not vegan, not even vegetarian.. but I do love this restaurant. A vegan friend invited me one day to go there and try it..I was deeply surprised how good and tasty vegan food can be. 
They also offer really good fruit juices, smoothies and shakes - delicioso drinks, which give you an energy boost.
You can enjoy the Menu del Dia, which gives you a choice of appetizer, main course, dessert, and beverage, for a very reasonable price of 8,50 €. You should definitely try the "Thali" there, one of the best I have ever had.
Juicy Jones restaurant barcelona
Juicy Jones has a really funky, kind of  "Gaudi-esque" design inside, which seems a bit psychedelic. Basically the walls are as bright and colorful as a nicely filled fruitbowl. So sometimes it might be a bit difficult to concentrate on the menu without getting distracted by the design of the restaurant. The staff is really friendly and you feel very welcome there. 
You can find this vegan spot just off the Ramblas, the closest Metro station is Liceu, the green line #3. Here a little video of Juicy Jones.. also interesting when you are not speaking spanish ;)
Here is a little guide and some useful spanish phrases for you to survive without the piglegs in Barcelona: click here
