Bar Omar Barcelona – A Blending Bar and Bistro Vibes

Restaurants

Here, classic bar snacks like croquettes, bravas, and potato salad coexist harmoniously with more substantial, stew-based dishes.

Tucked away in the bustling streets of Barcelona's Sant Gervasi-Santaló neighborhood, Bar Omar defies the conventional. At first glance, it may seem like your typical bar, with its prominent counter greeting you as you step in and its cozy size echoing the intimacy of a local tavern. However, Bar Omar is a culinary chameleon, seamlessly blending the soul of a restaurant with the casual flair of a bar.

What sets this spot apart is not just its ability to serve up delicious bites at the bar—making it my favorite spot for enjoying the lively atmosphere of the restaurant from the best seats in the house—but also its carefully curated menu. Here, classic bar snacks like croquettes, bravas, and potato salad coexist harmoniously with more substantial, stew-based dishes that showcase a mastery of flavors and presentation. It's a place where every dish, be it a bar classic or a restaurant-worthy main, is crafted with care and presented beautifully.

Dive deeper into the heart of Bar Omar, and you'll discover large pots simmering with the day's specials behind the bar, alongside an array of mouth-watering cheesecakes (the pistachio one is a must-try!). Despite its unassuming appearance, the option to order half-portions (just ask!) and the exceptional friendliness of the staff make dining here a delight.

If you're a fan of 70s and 80s pop and rock, the soundtrack of this place will be perfect for your evening: Phil Collins, Dire Straits, Michael Jackson, The Boss...
