This terrific little restaurant is very Spanish and wonderful for sharing small plates and tastings with friends or as a couple. In nice weather you can sit outside too.

"Tapas" mean appetizers, so this place has many good selections of appetizers you can share. Very delicious! The staff are very polite and friendly.

This restaurant is a tapas restaurant in the spanish tradition. Tapas are small dishes that are share, very topical in Spain. At Tapas Barcelona you can experience that, a good wine is a must!! Also the paella is very good.

When I am in town visiting the kids, we always end up here. The kids love it. We always seem to have a few extra kids with us and it is easy because the prices are very reasonable! Food and drinks are both great!
