Popular with both tourists and locals, this place is always packed and has a great vibe. Arrive early to ensure you get a table. It's a tiny place, with tables wedged up to the traditionally tiled walls. They’re famous of course for their bubbly glasses of homemade champagne, or cava as it’s known here. Pair this with tasty, classic tapas dishes such as strips of jamón (ham), small cheese-stuffed peppers, anchovies and cubes of octopus sprinkled with paprika.

Hands down the best tapas/pinxtos place we ate at in Barcelona. Get there early because it gets packed and locals hold onto their tables for a while. This is the kind of place you come to and hang out at for a while, drinking lots of beer and sampling lots of food. The food is old school and extremely fresh. Try the octopus, jamon, jamon fat on breadsticks (absolutely amazing), and anchovy pinxtos.

Amazing little spot just down the street from the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. Grab a table, order a bottle of the house made cava (a fresh, house made sparkling wine) and enjoy some amazing tapas. Try the calamari, the local cheeses, the red peppers stuffed with cheese, and whatever the dessert of the day is. While not undiscovered by tourists, the bar was crowded with old Spanish men, which we took as a good sign. Food and atmosphere were both excellent and the service is friendly.

This is my favorite bar in the entire world. If you're in Barcelona, don't miss it. Drink the house cava, don't miss the cheese stuffed peppers or the Catalan sausage. And tell them Ana from California sent you.

Great little local tapas bar in the middle of a fairly touristic area. If you can get a seat, hog it for hours and plug into a bottle of house xampanet. Great cured meats and excellent house boquerones (white anchovies).
