We went to dinner across the street from our hotel at Txapela. Tapas and pinxos are truly bite sized and mostly bread. Ham croquettes never came. Charged on bill anyway, but they took it off manually. Not the best food or the best service.

It's good for what it is. A franchise chain, the placemat is the menu, wide variety of tapas. Choose your tapas with the corresponding numbers quickly. Good when you are hungry and want to have a fast bite. The tapas taste good, but don't expect high cuisine. It's quite expensive though and not suited if you're looking for a authentic... More

Two visits in three days. Our first, hungry after a flight/check in fiasco we were thrilled to find La Txapela to be open. Welcoming set up with the restaurant/bar open to the street. Way past the 'witching hour' we perched at the rounded bar. It's still so deliciously warm we order delicious cold beers and checked out the displayed tapas.... More

Must go while in Barcelona! Cheap but very good tapas! Must go at the restaurant situated at corner of passeig de gracia and d'arago street. Best taste, portions and service at this one!!! Tapas #22, #38 and #39 are must tries! We are still craving their tapas and their sangria!

A lot of my friends spoke of tapas...this place changed my view on tapas. They had excellent choices on their menu, and very affordable ones as well. Not only that, my fiancee and I were able to order food TO GO From this place and then take the tapas to a park. Yeah, they give you a nice box and... More

Our first visit to Barcelona and we had to taste authentic tapas. We were not disappointed - the hostess and server spoke English very well and appreciated our limited attempts at Spanish! The menu was presented in the usual form and on our place mat. Each tapas had an image and a description. This turned out to be very valuable... More

Had walked past this inviting Tapas bar many time as near our hotel but never went in until our last night in Barcelona as always wanted to check out places away from the main drag. Now have deep regrets that did not check them out earlier as they have a fantastic selection of mouth watering treats on display for very... More

We visited La Txapela on one of our first nights in Spain. Jet lagged, hungry and not used to the Spanish late night meals, this place was a gem. We ate early about 6 PM, and many other places weren't open yet. Seems to be open all day without closing for a siesta. The waiter gave us the English menu... More

We had been recommended this tapas bar and it certainly lived up to expectations. The choice was fantastic and the food excellent. We had the sangria which was very tasty. Highly recommended.
