Looking for great SPANISH TAPAS with great ambiance
Las Ramblas has great ambiance but a party of 6 is going to be difficult, as it's rather small and doesn't take reservations. I'd do Txikito, Boqueria, or Casa Mono, in that order. They all take reservations for a group your size (for Boqueria, only 6+). Casa Mono is probably hardest to reserve. Mercat has the most ambiance after Las Ramblas but the food at the others is better. Note that all of these are more traditional Spanish tapas than Alta with Casa Mono being the least traditional but not as fusion-y as Alta.
