A nice place at the corner of Plaça Catalunya! The Tapas are typically Basque. You can choose them either directly from the bar or via the menu card (about 50 different types of Tapas, one half served cold, one half served warm). The menu card is translated into several different languages, which is a great plus: you can get exactly... More

We were enticed to eat at this restaurant after a great experience the night before at another tapas joint. Walking home, we noticed the sign and the crowd and decided to give La Txapela a go. We wish we had not. These are not true tapas but, rather, are single bites on pieces of bread. Truth be told, most seemed... More

We had a quick lunch in this restaurant on the Paseig de Gracia, close to our hotel. The service is quick and friendly. We were seated at the bar. The waitress was friendly and we discover a lot of tapas while eating. Good value for money for a nice quick lunch.

We ate at the Txapela in Placa de Catalunya and sat on the outdoor patio. It was conveniently located close to our hotel, and the patio was wonderful for people-watching. We went at about 2 PM, so the restaurant was pretty quiet. We were therefore able to order quick quickly, and our food arrived almost immediately. We enjoyed the tapas... More

I ate at the Txapela in Placa de Catalunya and I appreciated the service and the food. They have a good variety of cold and hot tapas, and the desserts are so delicious.

This place always seemed to be busy, so we tried for afternoon snack. After waiting for ages to be served we finally asked for a drink. The sangria was terrible and they don't have vodka or any spirits. Trouble even getting a coke. Staff were particularly rude. Tried 1 tapas which was quite good but we weren't inclined to stay...

Best tapas bar we have tried, kids loved it every bit as much as we the parents. The baccala tapas was an immediate favorite for us and the location is as good as it gets. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Although one of the priciest lunch the family enjoyed we are all certain on going back there.

I have been there 2 times.There are many various of choice of tapas are really cheap ! But drinks are normal price or a little bit expensive. It's really easy to order with visible tapas front of a table and menu with photos. If you don't know about tapas well, I suggest you to eat at this restaurant.
