Golf & Gastronomy
Barcelona Golf Destination – Crown your golf break to Barcelona with the excellent gastronomy of the golf clubs
July 9, 2021 – One of the many reasons to play golf in Barcelona is the added value of its gastronomy. Catalan cuisine is world famous for the prestige of its chefs and for its Mediterranean cuisine. The capital of Catalonia is a hub of this gastronomic tradition, loyally reflected in the restaurant services of its golf courses, which bring pleasure to the palate of golf lovers.
The Barcelona golf clubs make up a very varied offer in terms of location, distributed between the coast and the inland, surrounded by vineyards, near the sea, at the foot of Montseny or next to the mountain of Monserrat. They are ideal for your next golf break, and for that reason, our recommendation is that before or after playing, be sure to visit some of the restaurants on these wonderful golf courses, topping a memorable sports day by enjoying a fine meal in the restaurants of the clubs.
REAL CLUB DE GOLF EL PRAT
In the Real Club de Golf El Prat, a club of international prestige which breaths exclusivity, the options for eating are as varied as those for playing golf. In a 45-hole golf club with a choice of possible courses, its extraordinary gastronomic offer is diversified from the main restaurant to the different services such as the English Bar, the Snack Bar, the Palos Bar, or the Pool Restaurant and the Family Chiringuito, aimed at extending excellence from the golf course to the table.
At any time, the guest golfer will find here what is just perfect for every moment of the day, whether it is based on a good breakfast before going out on the course, the refreshment snack while playing, or as a culmination of the golf day with a pleasant meal when leaving the course, to the delight of the most gourmet golfer.
The El Prat Restaurant proposal, with a modern living room and a terrace overlooking the driving range, focuses on a kitchen with very fresh, seasonal products of the highest quality. In its menu, you can choose the classic dishes of the house, or venture innovations following the latest trends, with elaborate preparations that enhance flavor and textures. Star dishes are the truffle and cheese omelette, the Cuban rice or the steak tartare.
CLUB DE GOLF TERRAMAR
A visit to the Club de Golf Terramar is like a day at the beach on a green carpet. The golf course is so close to the Mediterranean Sea that playing here is a luxury for any golfer. And to satisfy your appetite after the round, nothing better than taking a table in its Gramen Restaurant, which offers a carte and a daily menu.
Opened in 2006, the gastronomic project mixes elements of traditional cuisine with the best current creative trends, counting on the advice of Paolo Casagrande, chef de cuisine of the Lasarte Restaurant, a 3-star Michelin restaurant in Barcelona. Delicious starters, seafood paella, grilled meats, side dishes…
With the highest quality prime materials used in all its dishes, the restaurant experience at Terramar combines an exquisite selection of elaborate dishes, a careful choice of wines to accompany, and extraordinary desserts created in the kitchens. Although for something quicker before going out onto the course, its bar offers appetizing tapas, sandwiches and mixed dishes.
