15 "Small Plates" restaurants in Barcelona.
You're going to want to take advantage of the Basque options while you're in Barcelona, and Taktika Berri is a good place to do it.
Although it can be gimmicky, Cal Pep is very good. You'll probably see a lot of tourists, but you'll be distracted enough by the good tapas to care.
A true local spot, Bar Ramon has unique tapas, old-school vibes, and rock and roll decor.
Can Recasens has some of the best cheeses and cured meets in the city. Plus, it's a little off the beaten path, so the tourist level will be minimal.
Cuines Santa Caterina is one of few restaurants open from lunch to dinner. When you don't want to think too much about your next meal, head here.
With several different high-quality restaurants and bars, you're bound to find something you like in El Nacional.
Another Barceloneta tapas spot. The speciality at La Cova Fumada is the bomba (a “potato bomb").
Barceloneta is home to some of the best tapas bars in the city, but Bar Electricitat still stands out. The space is dingy, and the food is excellent.
Quimet i Quimet is a famous spot for conservas and montaditos. Be prepared to eat them in the middle of the street.
