Recently various methods have been sought to globalize Korean food at government level. This study analyzed the status and types of the Korean restaurants located in Barcelona, Spain noted as a city of culture and tourism. Based on these results, This study intends to propose the developmental direction of Korean restaurants for the globalization of Korean food and status of the Korean restaurants located there. The results of the study are as follows. First, as a result of investigating the ethnic restaurants located in Barcelona, the number of Korean restaurants was relatively small, meaning that there are no various types of Korean restaurants, and thus the ways to increase the number of Korean restaurants in Barcelona will need to be sought. Second, it was found that the Korean restaurants located in Barcelona were not in competition with other Korean restaurants in the same commercial district and were formed about seven years ago on a scale of sixty seats on average at about 6∼100 pyeong(19.9∼330m²). In terms of interior design, it was found that the finishing by tiles and marble was preferred due to the characteristics of hot and humid climate and that operators themselves procured aesthetic elements for decorations directly from Korea. Third, as a result of analyzing the types based on the variety of kinds and price range, it was analyzed that there were two high-class Korean restaurants, three common Korean restaurants and one small-scale Korean restaurant. The space design plans will need to be established considering the concept and target of these restaurants as they are different according to the type of restaurant. In order to have objectivity in the future studies based on this study, it is expected that in-depth studies suggesting implications for the space design plans according to the type that meets the needs of customers are carried out by conducting the satisfaction survey of the customers who use these restaurants.
