Barcelona dines late. Lunch is served 2–4 and dinner 9–11. If you arrive a half-hour early, you may score a table but miss the life and fun of the place. The city is slowly adapting, however, to the imported eating timetables of tourists, and a number of decent restaurants now offer all-day and late-night hours. Hunger attacks between meals are easily resolved in the city's numerous cafés and tapas bars.
