Picnic located on the tranquil corner of Carrer Comerç 1 in the Born district, close to the Ciutadella park and Arc de Truimf.
The restaurant is small with a welcoming decoration. The wooden detail makes it cosy and different from other places in Barcelona.
Picnic is a hot spot on the weekend, famous for their Brunch where you can be seated on their terrace or inside. If you want to visit the restaurant during the weekend I strongly recommend you to book your table in advance, it gets packed.
During the week it´s calmer, they open for both lunch and dinner. I visited Picinic midweek for dinner with a friend, as we are early birds, we were the first one there, the service was welcoming, quick and easy going.
The owners of Picnic, Tara (Santa Barbara) and Jaime ( Santiago de Chile) change the menu with the season and use fresh products to make familiar recipes and creative dishes from around the globe.
We ordered to share Fried green tomatoes 5,50/dish, which I haven´t seen in many places in Barcelona. Shrimp Gyozas with Nuoc Cham sauce 9€, Sourdough toast with avocado and poached egg topped with a beetroot hollandaise sauce 10€, Gravlax toast with pickled radish 8€/dish and last the Burrata cheese with Raff tomatoes – small 9€/big 12€.
As the years have gone by in Barcelona I enjoy more and more to share my plates and if the option of tapas-sized dishes show, I will for sure sort of a couple of them. At Picnic all the dishes we ordered were from the tapas section of the menu, as it means smaller plates and we could try a greater variety and get to know the restaurants offer better.
The cuisine at Picnic is so full of flavours and nicely presented on the plate without trying to overdo it. The ambience at the Picnic is relaxed, non-pretentious, a great place to visit for an informal lunch or dinner to enjoy food made with care and love.
