Tapas in Bilbao? Donastia? Barcelona?

Will be hitting all three in September and am trying to start my list. Of course I'll comb some existing threads as well.

  1. The best tapas I had in all of Spain were at Tapac 24 in Barcelona. It's on Disputacio, just off Passeig de Gracia.
    They have super traditional tapas from all over Spain. In fact, the rabo de toro I had there was better than any of the ones I had in Andalusia.

    1. Restaurant Bosch in Barcelona was spectacular several years ago.

      1. taller a tapas,via argentera.

        1. Cuchara de San Telmo in San Sebastian. Everything on the list is good; the specialty is the foie.

          1. re: erica

            In Barcelona: most of the bars on C/Merce in the Barri Gotic, especially Bar Plata and the old-school asturian cider bars. Quimet i Quimet on Poeta Cabanyes in Poble Sec. Cerveceria Catalana on C/Mallorca.

          2. In Bilbao, check out El Globo on Diputación 8, close to Plaza Moyua. It's a hip place, with gentle servers and a large and interesting selection of tapas.
