“Take me back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

One of my favourite place in Barcelona. Lovely friendly atmosphere. Feels like you know everyone even though that's your first visit as a visitor in Barcelona. Hard to find but totally worthed. The food was exceptional!!

“Best experience of our 10 day Iberian peninsula trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We read the trip advisor reviews and decided to try this place. So glad that we did- everything was amazing. Tucked away in the Barri Gotic, the atmosphere is perfect. We were able to be seated right away. The waiter made great suggestions for food and Cava. We enjoyed the best Sangria we had during our trip. Everything about that night was perfect. We looked the remainder of the trip, but we didn't have a better meal during our trip.

“Outstanding food and atmosphere...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant can be hard to find... Hidden in a quiet streed in the old part of town(Gotic) you find this surprisingly good restaurant. Have been here three times... And enjoyed it everytime. Know the owner and feel welcome. The cook is worldclass. Every dish is like art. The menucard has a moroccan touch, but offers so many delicious choces. For drinking the place offers a range of good wines, and if you like gin this is the place to be. There are many different bottles to choose from.
The waiter speaks better english than i do and is good company. All in all Tacon Rojo is a place i will choose everytime i come to Barcelona.

“Excellent food, wine and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

I had read the reviews on tripadvisor and this place was high on my list of places to visit. I was not disappointed. on our first visit, we enjoyed beef stew, and a potatoe, cheese and ham dish, the wine we were recommended was excellent. We thoughly enjoyed our evening and went back a few nights later with our friend. we ordered a number of tapas to share, and a bottle of wine was picked out for us, again an excellent wine and another great evening. A little hard to find, but worth the effort.

“Charming and hidden away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

We happened upon the owner at lunch time who gave us his card and invited us to Tacon Rojo. The food and service was excellent. Great tapas, the best Sangria we had in all of Barcelona. The cheese was incredible and fresh. The meat and vegetable plates aplenty. Be brave and try the scallops tar tar! Octopus, potato.....on and on. The restaurant is hard to find but once you get there you never want to leave. The ambiance is as good as the food and the service. You won't be disappointed.
