Best tapas bars and restaurants in Barcelona?

I’m heading to Barcelona for the first time next month. What great places should eat at? Happy to splash out one or two nights.

Thanks!

I was recommended El Xampanyet just down the alley from the Picasso Museum and I was not disappointed! It is a small, bustling bar with friendly staff who were all too happy to recommend dishes to me and my brother. The bar taps encased in ice; numerous objects of curiosity scattered on shelves and photos which adorn the walls painted a fascinating backdrop for us while we ate our meals. It is an establishment popular with tourists and locals alike.

Try Casa de Tapes Canota (http://casadetapas.com/) and if you are lucky you may find a table at Tickets (Ferran Adria new adventure after closing El Bulli).

One of my friends – who works in the restaurant industry and has eaten at more Michelin-star restaurants than anyone I know – rates Cal Pep as his favourite restaurant anywhere. Go! But expect a very long queue.

Thanks very much everyone! Cal Pep is high on the list and El Xampanyet sounds great. Sadly (inevitably) Tickets is booked up until the end of November.

Cheers,

Ellie
