The Menu del Dia is one of Spain’s best kept secrets, which so many visitors miss out on, because they are not aware of it.
You can enjoy a three course meal with wine at a very reasonable price, if you simply know where to find a Menu of the Day.
The typical lunch in Catalonia, as in the rest of Spain, is much larger than those in most other countries and is eaten between the hours of 1.30pm and 4pm.
So to really enjoy the full lunch-time experience in Barcelona, you are probably going to have to change your habits and make lunch rather than dinner your main meal of the day.
In Barcelona, the Menú (pronounced – meh-noo) is particularly aimed at workers wanting an affordable but filling midday meal.
In fact, if the bar is full of locals that’s a sure sign that its Menu del Dia is excellent quality and value.
