Child friendly outings in Barcelona restaurants are no problem at all.
In Barcelona, the norm is to eat out as a family, especially on weekends. This means restaurants are not only used to children, but welcome them wholeheartedly. In fact, there is a law which makes it compulsory for restaurants not to discriminate their patrons who visit them with children. Thus, all restaurants in Barcelona are child friendly restaurants.
However, do not expect a children's menu or play area in every Barcelona restaurant. Good local – and childproof – options commonly found on tapas menus are the tortilla de patatas (potato omelette) or croquetas de jamón (croquettes with ham).
