Barcelona is well known for many things, including its Sangria, late dinners and above all, its incredible tapas. Whether you're in a tapas restaurant or not, there's usually the option of being able to order a 'small plate' of food or tapas dish, which is ideal for sharing amongst a group of people, especially if you don't feel like eating a full meal.
Our number one pick for Barcelona Tapas restaurants is Taller de Tapas. With several locations around town, this restaurant features upscale, gourmet tapas in an elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere.
Heading up Paseo de Gracia, our number three pick is one of Barcelona's most popular tapas joints. Tapas 24, part of the Comerc 24 chain, is a delicious, hole in the wall, tapas restaurant, with greasy, authentic Spanish dishes. The restaurant is small and they don't take reservations so it's best to go early especially on a Friday or Saturday.
They also make a killer Cava Sangria. If you feel like some good wine and slightly more elaborate tapas, our number six pick is perfect. Ginger bar, located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, is ideal for intimate gatherings. They have a wide range of cocktails and an extensive wine list.
