Tapas, everybody has heard of tapas, but what exactly is a tapa? A tapa is a small portion of food that you get when ordering a drink, normally beer or wine. Depending on the bar, it can vary from peanuts to Spanish omelet or even a small portion of paella.

In some parts of Spain (e.g. Granada and Leon), the tapa is free. Unfortunately, this is not the case of Barcelona where you have to pay for them.

Here are some of the best tapas bars in Barcelona:

La EsquinicaC/ Fabra i Puig 192 (Metro L5 – Virrei Amat). Tel. 933582519.
Probably the best tapas bar in Barcelona. It is not located in the city center, therefore you will not find many tourists there. Large amount of tapas, really friendly staff and reasonable prices are the main characteristics.
The place is absolutely packed after 9pm so expect a long queue, so just try getting there before 9pm. Map.

Bar TomásC/ Major de Sarrià 49 (Metro L6 – Sarrià). Tel. 932031077.
Probably the best patatas bravas (spicy fried potatotes) in Barcelona. The place looks just normal from the outside however their patatas bravas are simply excellent. Prices are also very reasonable. Map.

Los TorerosC/Xuclà 3-5 beside Las Ramblas (Metro L1, L3 – Plaça Catalunya). Tel. 933182325.
Typical Spanish restaurant with typical Spanish decoration. Wide of tapas. Localted in the city center. Map.

  • We had dined there 2 weeks ago. It was really good. The space is open and has some style. And their menus with the Barca celandar girls in bikinis from the 70 s are fun (my husband took one to send to a friend). We also had tapas dinner, and everything including the wine was of very good quality. Will be eating back there soon. Your pictures of the place are very nice!
