Bestial, Barcelona

A day on the beach in Barcelona is so refreshing and relaxing. A long lunch at Bestial only makes it better. Make reservations in advance and be sure to ask for a table with a view outside if preferred. Bestial is part of a larger group of restaurants throughout Spain and Mexico. I’ve visited most of their restaurants in Barcelona and enjoyed them all. It’s always great to find a group that is reliable when traveling. Bestial is one of my favorites, however. What could be better than a great lunch on the beach in Spain watching the Mediterranean? We’re still searching!
