We came here a few times to eat tapas. The service was always really friendly and the tapas very good. Also you can eat outside and one of the bars is right at the plaza Cataluña. In total there are three of them, at passeig de Gracia 8, passeig de Gracia 58 and plaza Cataluña 8.

We went to the one located at Passeig de Gracia 58, so I am not sure about the other restaurants they have. We need to wait a bit to have a table - what was ok, since it was a weekend in Barcelona. And we choose a few pintxos from the menu (that have pictures, what make it easy to... More

We went to this place after recommendations from a friend of my son. I have never experienced so poor service in my life. We waited over 2 hrs before we got all our food due to wrongdoing in the kitchen. When the waiter come with our food after several complains, it was wrong yet again. When I told him he... More

I think is the best tapas in town, fresh and delicious. Try the crab salad rolled in salmon... Amazing!! The service is poor though,,, but due to few people working there! I recommend it!

I believe that there is a chain of these restaurants - we ate at Passeig de Gracia 58. Very busy and you have to be early for a seat. Easy to choose what to eat as they have photos to pick what you would like. Very reasonably priced, but the more you choose the more you pay. We had several... More

After a full on day exploring the beautiful city of Barcelona, there's not a better place to sit in the sun, enjoy some of the best tapas is the city with a cool beer and watch the world go by. Well priced, excellent & friendly service and a great stop off point before starting out all over again

Try the place at least once, "at least" because i think then you will want to go back twice... These tapas are great, genuine ingredients and a very wide choice that you want to taste them all!

Txapela is a tapas restaurant chain. You'll find it all over Barcelona. We visited the place at Passeig de Gracia, 58 in the early evening (7pm) for pre-dinner drinks and bites. I'd recommend not having dinner here if you are looking for a special experience. For romance and/or very good tapas try one of the many restaurants, for instance in... More

My school group and i were planning to meet here for dinner and drinks. A small group of us came first and were going to order the first round of sangria. Despite making eye contact with the waiter several times and him putting menus on the table it was 15 minutes before he took our order and another 10 before... More
