“Tapas-on-the-go”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This place is good for some fast food tapas. Not 'the real thing' but an acceptable replacement and good value for money. The choice of tapas on the menu is pretty standard, but a good thing is that the menus have images of the dishes and a good explanation of what it is in English. There are several 'Tapa Tapa' restaurants throughout Barcelona, but we only tried this one after a lazy sunday on the beach of Barceloneta. Service is not the fastest, but they are very kind and interested in their customers. Will come back!

“It's at the beach.....who cares about the food.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Food was ok. Service was a little slow but adequate. Food was ok. Nothing to go crazy about but not bad either. But you are overlooking the beach so life is good.....

“Good quality and casual tapas standardised”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Tapa Tapa appears to be a local tapas restaurant chain. It is popular with local families and does tasty Catalan tapas. We visited the Barceloneta restaurant twice.

They have managed to standardise Catalan tapas so if you're in need of reliably good fare and in Barcelona, Tapa Tapa is a sure bet.

“Excellent Tapas by the Barceloneta”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

This place is definitely one to go to if you're on the Barceloneta looking for dinner. The food is cooked perfectly and even though we're tourists with a plan to eat at a different place every meal, we might make an exception for this! The only downside to our trip here was that we were full of sangría, so not hungry enough to take advantage of all the offerings on the menu.

The callos del tapa tapa (local dish, pig's stomach) was stewed very nicely, tender as it should be and full of flavour. We were particularly impressed by the mussels, which were also cooked perfectly - so many places tend to overdo them. All our dishes really hit the spot!

Our waitress Judith (hope I got the spelling right) was dashing around (I think she was serving 10 tables or so at the same time??) but still served us promptly and was very friendly. Great service!

No comment on drinks 'cause we were full of sangría and coffee by the time we hit this joint.

Great value, great service, great food, great beach location... What more could anyone (much less a tourist) ask for?

“Quality tapas basically on the beach”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

On a warm day, TapaTapa is a very nice place to enjoy some good quality tapas in the shade. We had first considered a table inside as all tables outside were occupied, but found the A/C a bit aggressive so we decided to wait for an outside table to become free. The sangria, tapas, desserts and coffee were all very tasty and we had a pleasant experience. The price seemed fair, given the location and good quality. Definitely recommendable if you are at the beach.
