We sat in the regular area. We ordered abour 5-6 tapa's .. all quite nice though I cannot really remember what we ordered .. we... More

A small restaurant in the old town-not easy to find but well worth it. We were served with our drinks very quickly and the English language menu presented. The owner (?) came over to advise us what we might be interested in. The food, when it came, was very fresh, very tasty and well presented. This is not a restaurant... More

We loved this place! Friendly staff! The key to a great experience is to let the owner recommend best wine and all the flavours for the evening. Truly untouristy and intimate setting. The tapas was absolutely top quality. The flavours all unique and outstanding. Really if you are a foodie and want to experience something off the track this is... More

A nice cozy little restaurant off the beaten path on a street that requires you to write the directions. Not many tables. We made reservations online. Seemed a bit lonely downstairs in the restaurant. The food was very good and the Sangria wonderfully loaded with different fruits. We had a Pork and Lentil stew that was very good and the... More

Hidden away down one of the ally's we were warmly greater by the owner. Whilst ordering the owner mentioned that some of the dishes we were ordering were very... More

The sangria in this place was amazing and the owner was really friendly! As visited this place because of the great reviews on trip advisor but unfortunate because if the location being tucked up a quite side street the restaurant only had one other couple in so was a bit dead. But the food was great of not a little... More

If I lived in Barcelona, I would go to this restaurant/bar at least twice a week....at least. And I would always have the best-ever sangria. And if I lived in Barcelona, I would meet my friends at Tacon Rojo and have their delicious food and hang out with their great staff. I would be a regular for sure. Go --... More

We have seen many restaurants in Espana during several visits. Tacones rojo had very good pieces of tapas served in a very friendly way. In Finnish I would say it "rento meininki" or in English "Relaxed athmosphere" in Spanish just "amable". For ladies a waiter who looked and sounded like Javier Bardem is extra. Muchas Gracias, veremos otra vez en... More
