Tapas, paella and white wine – perfect summer food made in Spain. This summer, why not take a trip to Barcelona, one of Europe’s most vibrant cities, and check out its famous La Boqueria Market?

My Way offers Mediterranean cuisine and some of the best cocktails the city has to offer. We recommend you keep it simple and tuck into tapas dishes like Galician-style octopus, ham croquettes, and sausage in cider. They also serve delicious meat and fish dishes that will satisfy your hunger after a few hours browsing the nearby market.
