Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.

Lip-smackingly good!

Hope and Deliverance – The Best of Barcelona’s Online Food Delivery Services

 

There are countless places to get eat out in Barcelona, or to grab a bite on the run, but online food delivery services haven’t exactly been abundant – until now.

A whole bunch of online food delivery platforms have sprung up as go-betweens for local restaurants and takeaway joints… and hungry customers. You’ll typically spot them zipping around side streets on scooters, with what looks like a giant lunch box on the back.
So, if you want to kick back at your apartment, and dial up dinner, or click for a working lunch on a platter, here’s a heads up on the city’s most popular online food ordering services.

Get It, Got It, Good!
Just Eat
was one of the first on the Barcelona scene to answer the sofa-based belly rumble. Both website and app, it offers delivery from thousands of local restaurants. Users enter their postcode and browse by cuisine and menu, then filter by delivery charge, minimum order, and user ratings, or peruse offers and discounts. A few months back, Just Eat just ate local competitor Food2U, broadening its offer and ramping up its app-service.

La Nevera Roja (The Red Refrigerator) works much like Just Eat, but also includes delivery times, a gluten-free section and a selection of restaurants that cater to offices. Deliveroo guarantees restaurant-to-table service in “under 32 minutes” and features appetizing photos of dishes up for grabs.
Other popular web-based delivery services include Deliverum and Resto-In. All in all, you’re pretty much spoilt for choice!

A Little Food for Thought
All these online food-fetchers and carriers take cards, and in many cases, let you pay the ´courier´ upon delivery.  Most participating restaurants don’t charge for delivery, but typically expect to pay around 5 bucks in surcharges to the site (not exactly hard to swallow, considering the legwork it saves in hunting and gathering one’s own fodder).

Also: rest assured you’ll be able to get a bite of something-or-other around the clock, but that these platforms are subject to restaurant opening hours – so if kitchen’s closed, there’s no magic wand that can be waved to conjure your curry/chistorra/Caesar salad.
