The Best Barcelona Restaurants for Large Group Dinners


Group dinners in Barcelona are always a journey of laughs and delicious foods. Not just because there is no better reason for a group to gather at a restaurant, but also because of this city parties so hard, group dinners are essentially a colossal pregame with food. So where should you take your big group for its big night out? Or your family, if you actually want a group dinner without the chaos? Here are the best restaurants in Barcelona serving great traditional Catalan food, and capable to hold lots of folks.

CASA JAIME (since 1953)

Our friend Josep who founded Salses Lug, once organized a group dinner at this historic restaurant that specializes in both Catalan and Spanish cuisine. It offers the perfect balance between old and modern vibes, high-quality products that are tasted in the form of classic tapas and a charming atmosphere. Simply a great restaurant for large groups dinners in Barcelona.

One of the new concepts within the culinary world that are gaining momentum is the private dinners that are organized at hidden locations which are unveiled just before the event takes place. This type of event involves live show cooking, where trendy dishes are prepared in front of guests, open bar with premium local brands, live music and plenty of fun. Why not join a Clandestine dinner in Barcelona? It is an awesome activity for a large group meal with plenty of fun included.

LA BODEGA (since 1983)

Founded in the same place an ancient tavern used to supply barrel wine to the neighbors of the Sant Gervasi District, La Bodega has built its character by being first a food haunt that evolved into a classic Barcelona restaurant that serves Mediterranean market cuisine where the staff is quite attentive and elegant. Lovely atmosphere and great dishes to enjoy with a well-curated wine menu.

TAVERNA EL GLOP (since 1978)

Located in the Gracia district where everything has character and uniqueness, La Taverna El Glop opened since the day I came to this world specializes on a particular type of cuisine, the one that is celebrated by Catalonian peasants. This is the perfect location for a group dinner in Barcelona where you shouldn’t miss snails, curated meat and the famous ¨calcots¨ during its season.

Close to the glamorous Diagonal Avenue, this restaurant has a vintage atmosphere that makes us feel like being in Chicago during the days of prohibition. They specialize in meat cuts, which paired with veggies and one of the many good local Catalan wines, provides the perfect spot for a carnivorous group dinner in Barcelona.
