Boca Boca, Salou

After our amazing holiday in Sicily we decided to have an extra week in Spain and hopped on a quick flight over to Barcelona. Our kids needed a little more teenage company and we knew that staying in a hotel with other children would be the ideal chance for them to burn some energy and relax a little more before school starts again.

I’ve mentioned before in other posts that these weeks where we all get to spend time together are probably the most valuable ones for us out of the whole year. We like to do the less ordinary kind of things and we always like to surprise them.

Of course being the children of two total food addict parents means they love a good find of a restaurant just as much as we do.

You know that feeling when you’re headed out to lunch and you know it’s going to be awesome? Welcome to Boca Boca!

Quirky decor, lively music and an energetic atmosphere makes this place the perfect family restaurant.

A gorgeous space with an original mixture of industrial, a twist of vintage chic, recycled furniture and antique pieces are what make this place a little different from all the other Salou based restaurants we’d seen.

Pretty girls orchids on every table. This place is an Instagram/Pinterest goldmine. (Check out my Instagram here)

There’s cocktails for me…(rocking the no make-up look here, eek)

And me…

And me… only joking, there’s mocktails too.

And then there’s the food.. oh my the food was good!

After a week of cooking in our villa, which don’t get me wrong; I loved, eating out was more than welcome.

We’d stumbled across this place the evening before for drinks and we’d happened to pick up a menu and browse through the food… page after page… tapas after tapas… and with the kind of glances where you’re all thinking the same thing we knew immediately we were coming back the next day for lunch.

We gorged on burgers.

Drank real fruit smoothies.

Demolished the patatas bravas.

Munched on veggie sandwiches with punchy flavours, probably the sort of thing you could do with after a night on the tiles… but distinctly healthy too.

And it would be a crime to miss out on the onion rings. They may look pretty simple or something your Mum pulled out the freezer in the early 90’s but they were surprisingly light and crispy.

And just when you think you literally cannot squeeze one more thing in out come these little babies with a side order of real vanilla ice-cream. The crepe was mine, the waffle was Coby’s.

The service was maybe a tad slow but isn’t that true to the Spanish norm? We were in no rush.

Should you find yourself in Salou, I highly recommend popping in. Be sure to go hungry!

    Wow, you are so lucky that you are able to roam the world so easily. I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to decide to make a pit stop in another country after a vacation.

  15. 9th September 2017 / 10:17 am

    That food looks delicious. I am heading to Italy in a couple of weeks so you can imagine my excitement. But not Sicily unfortunately. i am just going to Milan.

    We are going to Salou next year for a holiday! We will have to look out for some of these whilst we are there. Barcelona is on the itinerary hopefully, as our daughter has asked us to take her there on one of the days but we are told there is plenty locally as well to keep us entertained! 🙂

      My thighs may disagree with you…

  23. 13th September 2017 / 11:55 pm

    Oh yum! I’m always looking for somewhere that does good Bravas!

  24. 14th September 2017 / 12:21 pm

    How lovely that you got to extend your holiday! I love the decor of this place, modern and yet classic. The food looks amazing, I can see why you returned! Beautiful photo’s 🙂

  25. 14th September 2017 / 7:03 pm

    I visited both Matrid and Barcelona last year. We did a weekend in Barcelona and definitely was not enough time. So we’re hoping to retun in the ext couple of years. We spent an entire week in Madrid and had a blast! Your photos are really awesome. And I’m sure those drinks were yummy! Hate I didn’t get to visit Boca Boca.

  26. 26th October 2017 / 10:53 pm

    This restaurant looks amazing! The food looks like it is made with love, and so unique! Patatas Bravas are my absolute favorite!

  27. 5th November 2017 / 10:40 am

    Oh my goodness this has made me so hungry! That food and drink looks out of this world! I’d love to go to Barcelona! I think the flight times are pretty reasonable so might have to consider it for this next year x
