We were staying in the apartment block above this gorgeous little tapas bar in Barcelona, but didn't notice it until our second day in the city. For our last evening we decided we would eat here, and it was the best tapas we had while in Barcelona. The staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was great and the glasses of... More

My son & his girlfriend booked this for my birthday - the reservation was confirmed. When we got there it was closed and looked has though it had been for some time. Very disappointing as we had gone out of our way. It needs to removed from Tripadvisor! Found an excellent one round the corner though.

The restaurant was hard to find and we went significantly out of our way only to discover it is closed. Left sad and hungry - the reviews looked great.

This restaurant was situated right outside our apartment and we nearly missed it!! Small and inconspicuous looking from the outside, you would not realise the absolute gold mine waiting for you inside. The two waiters for the night made us feel as if we were eating with friends, and were attentive to our every need. They both went above and... More

Small wine and tapas bar in the touristic area but not a tourist trap at all. Come here when you have time to enjoy some good cocktails, tapas and/or wines (Spanish or French). We made the mistake of going here when we were on a tight time schedule because we had a flamenco concert planned later that night, but the... More

If you think of La Tacon Rojo „the red high heel“, you might think about a beautiful woman, the Spanish Flamenco or passion. And passion is exactly what we found in this beautiful restaurant La Tacon Rojo. The restaurant itself is inconspicuously located in one of the small alleys of the Gotic quarter. When we entered the restaurant we were... More

This was the best sangria I've ever had! And the tapas were delicious too. Small restaurant but once your down and sitting it's a great place to eat, drink, and relax
