After much research prior to our trip to Barcelona we decided that we MUST eat at Tacon Rojo based on the fantastic reviews it received. The restaurant itself is a little tricky to find but with the help of a nearby shop owner we found our destination and our amazing dining experience began.

We were greeted by Luis and the owner Mo who would be our hosts, waiter and entertainment for the evening. The restaurant itself was quaint with a small bar and a well stocked wine cellar with a variety of very nice wines. The personal attention we received from Luis was exceptional, from the sampling of wines to a explanation of the entire menu.

The tapas was incredible and very different from the other restaurants we had eaten at while in Barcelona....you won’t find any deep fried food here. This was hands down the best tapas we had in Barcelona.

If you want an exceptional dining experience I highly recommend you pay a visit to Tacon Rojo you won't be disappointed.

- You rarely find SO good service anywhere in Barcelona.
- Tapas a bit more pricey, but best tapas I've had in Barcelona so far.
- Good drinks as well

We enjoyed a great dinner here and liked this small place a lot—we had reserved although fortunately or unfortunately, the bar was mostly empty. Therefore we got a lot of personal attention from the barkeeper who asked us what sort of music we wanted to hear, let us try the wine, and walked us through the whole menu (in excellent English). He prepared a delicious soup before our eyes and helped the cook with the rest of our dishes, which were very tasty and fresh. We had a lovely evening at this sort of hole-in-the-wall bar/restaurant. Just be aware that Google Maps shows the location incorrectly—the barkeeper was super friendly though and after we had called, lost in the Bari Gotic, actually walked over to where we were standing (some blocks away) and brought us personally to the restaurant. That sort of service and effort can’t be beaten.

The Tacón Rojo is not that easy to find (close to Carrer d'Avinyó and Carrer Ample), but it's definitely worth the search We had tapas there which were just great, altough you won't find the typical tapas on the menu but more fancy ones. The owner is very helpful and friendly and if you can't decide just let him decide, it will for sure be the right choice. Prices are good for the quality you get, we tried a lot of tapas and had wine (white housewine is great!) and paid about 20,- EUR pp. It's a lovely atmosphere. Just try it.
