Barcelona has varied food for any budget but it is recommended to avoid going to tourist areas for their overpriced and low quality restaurants. It pays to do a research in advance before heading out to get quality meal which is worth the price. Like in any places located n the Iberian Peninsula, Barcelona is a relative bargain city compared to most major cities in Western Europe. Hotels and hostels may offer tourists reasonable prices but might be higher during the peak of summer season where a lot of tourists from all over flock to Spain in the months of July and August.
