Myself and my partner visited here for a late lunch and ordered beef cheek, Iberian ham croquette, chicken legs, cod fritter, sausage and wild mushroom cannelloni. Everything we ate was 10/10 full of flavour so fresh and arrived quickly. The staff are fun, friendly, and helpful making you feel more than welcome. I would definitely return here and I recommend...

To start, the service was second to none, all staff were very polite and professional. Tapeo has a great vibe, and it had a great atmosphere and setup well suited to smaller groups. Lastly and most importantly, the food was spectacular! This was the only place we ate at more than once and for good reason. One thing, you would... More

Tapeo is a small, neat place that is definitely worth the visit - if you are lucky enough to get a table. We booked 2 days ahead and there was a line of people waiting outside - some of them had reservations as well. Some minor delays, but really, no problem at all. Although it is hard to find a...

Small, compact and crowded place. Booked via The fork on TA and had no trouble with reservation. The fideua is the highlight of this place. It is the pasta version of the paella. Staff able to communicate in English.

We went to Tapeo by chance as the restaurant we wanted to go across the road was already full. However, we had such a great time. The food was amazing, the service was great, everything was reasonably priced and a great selection of wine. Can't fault it - really worth a visit.

Every time I am in Barcelona, visit to Tapeo bar is a must. They have small menu but everything is a thumbs up! The seafood Fideua is the best in Gothic quarter. The place is very popular with locals. Service is great. The waiters are very knowledgeable and always recommend the best from the menu. Must try if you are... More

Stopped in for a late afternoon bite. Tapas were delicious. Service was friendly. Chill place to hang out, have a drink and eat some great food. Would highly recommend a visit.

Customers sit on stools, with backs, either at the bar or at tables for two. There was a conveniently placed hook under the table for my handbag. For groups of more than two, there is a room with tables out the back. The waiter advised us to order two dishes each, i.e. four dishes. We subsequently added a fifth dish.... More

Great Tapas, nice atmosphere, lovely area and not overly expensive. Couldn't recommend it more if you're looking for a chilled meal and a few drinks.

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.
