Eating in Castelldefels

Eating in Castelldefels

Located in the region of the low Llobregat and protected by the Garraf mountain range, Castelldefels is a traditional place for tourists during summer thanks to its beaches and its historical fortress. Regarding the gastronomy, eating in Castelldefels is a synonym of fish, seafood and a lot of rice. Even if these are not your favorite dishes, you should not worry, as the offer is very broad.

Castelldefels is one of the main touristic destinations of the coast of Barcelona. Located on a few kilometers away from the capital, the gastronomy is known for offering the visitors a broad variety of products, recipes and settings that go from the restaurants at the beach to the classical restaurants in the center of the town. The sea offers fish and seafood, which is the base of many dishes  such as the rice and suquets – popular in the Catalan coast and, of course, in Casteldefels.

Between the meats, the chicken pota blava (blue leg) is very famous. This local breed is highly appreciated during the Christmas celebrations. Some other things that are common when eating in Castelldefels are the traditional snails, cocas and escalibadas. To complete this experience, nothing better than a glass of cava, produced regionally. Located only a few kilometers away from this village, the El Garraf Park is also one of the main touristic attractions of Castelldefels.

If you want to eat tapas in Castelldefels, you should know that in this village it is easy to find good bars such as TasKa or Txalaka, both with a great offer of tapas.

TasKa is perfect to eat some tapas or portions, such as the calamari meatballs and the cod buñuelos. The food is always fresh. If you still want to eat something else after this, you can always order their daily menu. On the other hand, Txalaka has a varied menu from which you can order some starters, such as the croquetas or a combination of Piquillo and Padrón peppers with potatoes. We recommend the tuna pincho with guacamole.
