Wonderful classic tapas with a wide variety of fish, meat, green olives (perhaps the best I have ever has,... More

We decided to make the quick walk from Old Town to enjoy some late evening tapas and wine. So glad we did! The vino tinto was fabulous and our waiter was extremely helpful explaining the ingredients of each of the self-serve tapas. He accommodated our limited Catalan vocabulary with his English. We sort of met in the middle -- successfully.... More

After our first choice for dinner was closed on a Monday night, we headed to Txalaka near our AirBNB rental. The service was friendly at the self-serve tapas bar and they had great variety. Total for tapas for two people with a beer and wine was $28.

Good tapas, nice atmosphere. The only downside, there is no TV screen there, so we could not watch the Champions league game. We had to move to the bar next door.

Huge selection of lovely cold tapas (self service), Euro 1.65 each, including cheese and sweets. Fantastic a la carte. We had 4 or 5 cold tapas each, then shared two starters from the menu, and went on for 2 more cold tapas each for sweet, two espressos. The bill, which included 4 large glasses of house wine came to about... More
