After you have settled for delicious tapas, another important questions pops up.
“Where should we go?” This question is probably the hardest to answer in a city like Barcelona. The diversity of food just within the tapas range is outstanding.
In this post we will recommend you six amazing tapas restaurants all over the city to have in mind when this dilemma comes up (which will be more than once).
1. El Sifó d’en Garriga - Eixample
Right next to Passeig de Gracia in Consell de Cent street, El Sifó is the sister project of veteran restaurant Cuina Garriga. It is a slight modern twist to tapas without going overboard. You can try their peas hummus with a hint of mint and do order their chocolate dessert that will blow your mind!
Where? c /Consell de Cent, 308 bis
2. Bilbao Berria - Gótic
Our neighbors up north (Basque Country) are known for their Pintxos, similar to tapas but always served on top of bread. Bilbao Berria provides a luxurious experience to eating pintxos. Try their octopus with truffled cream and potatoes, you will not be disappointed.
Where? Plaza Nova, 3
3. Mordisco - Eixample
One of the most popular restaurants in the city. Mordisco is located in a cute passage between Passeig de Gracia and Rambla Catalunya. The decoration will make you feel at home and you can enjoy from the art that is displayed on the walls (they have a Miró!). Don’t forget to order their Burrata Salad one of the best in the city.
Where? Passatge de la Concepció, 10
4. La Vermú - Grácia
Small and authentic place located in the heart of the Gracia neighborhood. Perfect to go for wine or vermut but don’t forget to try their Tortilla de Patatas, it is like no other.
Where? Carrer de Sant Domènec, 15
5. Tantarantana - Born
Although the name might be hard to pronounce, this place is worth the tongue twist. Try to get a table in the terrace as you might be able to listen to beautiful street musicians and will make you feel as if you were in a movie. Order their Ventresca Salad if its a hot day!
Where? Carrer de Tantarantana, 24
6. Bar Calders - St. Antoni
A great place that is “de toda la vida”. This authentic and classic tapas place named after Catalan poet Joan Calders. Order Mejillones en Escabeche and the goat’s cheese bocadillo. Enjoy their terrace by day or find one of their hidden books inside the restaurant.
Where? Carrer Parlament, 25
