The walking tour we were on finished nearby. The restaurant we earmarked to have lunch at was closed until early September. It was our fortune they hadn't updated their internet information otherwise we would not have given Tapeo a try. Tapeo was full but they found us a table near the kitchen. Very friendly waiter. The food was delicious. Tempura... More

We stumbled on this small tapas restaurant near the Picasso Museum. Actually found it in a Rick Steves Guide to Barcelona. It is simply outstanding. Tapas are freshly prepared in a tiny kitchen open to the bar/dining room. The chef and two assistants moved quickly, efficiently, and nearly silent as they sent out plate after plate of nearly gourmet quality... More

My wife and I were recommended this restaurant by our hotel for our first night in Barcelona and we were extremely pleased with the experience. The food choices were excellent and the ones we selected were cooked to perfection and tasted delicious. The staff were very friendly and appeared eager to please. Hopefully we'll return before our holiday is over.... More

Tapeo was recommended by my boyfriend's sister and we were not disappointed ! Everything we had was wonderful. We had a lovely time there. It's not a big place so make sure to book a table if you don't want to wait

I have visited this place with my family on Sunday. I've booked before hand, which was good as the place was super busy with a line outside. We were sited at the bar, which I don't mind at all as you can speak with strangers and the bartender : ) Despite the fact that the place is tiny and it... More

Nothing much to say but perfect ! The sélection of tapas, the kindness of staff, the quality of the food and for quite a reasonable price! It was a great night out and we would go back to Barcelona just to eat there again !

Such a cute little restaurant! Book in advance if you are more than two though! We had to wait outside for about 20mins but they offer you something to drink in the meantime! Totally worth the wait! It was like heaven in my mouth! Seriously best tapas I've eaten!

I was reluctant to book at first cos of some other reviews complained about the service. So glad that we came anyway. It's a small restaurant not for a romantic meal but service was fine and food was really good. We ordered the cannelloni, ribs, stuffed squid, grilled octopus, ham, asparagus.... All yummy. It's a busy little place so do... 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.
