Madrid is not only the capital but also one of the most vibrant and friendly cities in Spain where people love to get together around a cold beer, some typical tapas and lots of good vibes… welcome to Madrid! It would be totally inaccurate to come up with a short list of the best tapas bars in Madrid but, hey, I got you reading this post! In Madrid you will find a surprising tapas bar in every corner, from a sophisticated gastrobar to a modest bar serving the best tortilla for over a century!

Sydney restaurant in Miami playa: a traditional restaurant with great sea-views

Sydney restaurant Miami

If you are travelling to Miami playa (the one in Spain, Tarragona, not in Florida) you should know about my favorite restaurant. Miami playa is a beautiful Mediterranean long beach resort in the province of Tarragona (in the South of Catalonia). It is a very well-served destination yet it has kept a traditional and charming Spanish style and even though it can get crowded in summer: Miami playa is still a hidden gem worth visiting on your summer holiday. Indeed, Miami, right by the village called Hospitalet de l’Infant, is served by the main Mediterranean highway (Valencia-Barcelona), by a free-way, by a national road, by train and it is also very close from Reus international airport. So even if you are not staying in Miami itself, I would highly recommend you to spend a beach day there followed by some drinks and dinner at my favorite local restaurant: Sydney. Well, this More here

A Spanish Perspective

If you are visiting Barcelona or just heading to the cathedral of Barcelona, one of the most emblematic squares in town, make sure you stop by Estruch for a nice tapa, coffee and so much more! Avoid touristy traps and enjoy proper yummy food! By the way, we are talking about the main cathedral: Catedral de la Santa Creu i de Santa Eulalia. The Estruch exists since the 19th century and it is a café and restaurant located in front of the Cathedral in the Gothic neighborhood: Avenida de la Catedral, 3, 08002 Barcelona. I am from central Barcelona myself so believe me when I say that you are going to have a good time there, I eat in the Estruch regulary and I simply love it.  It is a small but really nice and cosy restaurant where you can have lunch with your friends, partner or family. However, it also More here
