We seated at the bar and ordered some tapas and a jar of sangria. Tapas were ok, had better ones. I do not recommend sangria since you cannot get the taste of wine, it is more like watery. But overall was fine, can spend time for lunch.

This very understated little restaurant turned out to be an absolute gem. Well priced and extremely generous portions. I would highly recommend it, but best suited for couples as dining is quite tight.

Tapeo is a tapas bar in the Barrio Gotico. It's a tiny place, and you can either sit at the bar or in small high tables for two along the wall. We were there on a Thursday night, and it was super crowded. We had reservations, and I don't think we would have gotten a table without them. This is... More

Tapeo is a small, but nice tapas restaurant. I stopped by for a quick lunch, and was not dissapointed. Good food at reasonable prices, nice sitting area and friendly staff. Would go again!

We went to Tapeo three times during December 2015 and we had the same quality, ever! It's like eating in a five star restaurant in a different shape. Minimal and luxury, well balanced menu and good wine list. What else?

We have visited Tapeo twice with a few month in between, so I am quite sure about what I write... Both times we were there the food has been excellent. The different tapas, or rather pintxios, cooked à la minute are tasty, innovative and beautifully made. I want especially to recommend their rabbit racks (tasty and fried to perfection). This...

A small but modern restaurant in the gothic quarter. Food and services are excellent! You probably need to try the oxtail and Iberia pork ribs, it's the best in town!

We had dinner here for new years eve. It is a little pricey compared to other tapas bar, for example Cerveceria catalana, the best place in Brc. But we ate very good. Bife bread is yummy. The food is very very good. It is a nice and modern place. The service is also good. Do not eat crema catalana. It... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
