Barcelona - your latest favourite tapas near in central Barcelona

MichelinStarDinners Dec 7, 2012 08:06 PM

Hi all,
I know, you have suggested many great places for great tapas in Barcelona , but could you kindly help out to select some great ones around the area of Hotel Jazz Pelai, 3, L'Eixample, 08001 Barcelona. This is pretty much central, from what I gathered. I never visited Barcelona before, but if that can help, I am expecting tapas places that are either equal or superior to San Sebastian's most popular pintxos (I know, I should not compare San Sebastian to Barcelona, but this was just to constructively convey my expectations as much as I could). So, great tapas even for the locals, of good value, at walkable distance to that hotel. In Spain, asking for delicious food at reasonable price is not impossible from what I could observe in San Sebastian, therefore I believe I am not asking for the moon in my request for Barcelona. Also: if you have great recs for breakfasts (great value, delicious food), please let me know, Thanks!

    This doesn't answer you specifically but Barcelona may be the easiest city I've ever visited for getting around. Their Metro system is just super. And it's just not a huge city, land mass-wise, so walking is easy and taxis aren't ridiculously expensive cause you're not going long distances. I highly recommend Paco Meralgo which IS in Eixample, I believe, but that covers a lot of ground, it seems. You'll have a wonderful time, I'm sure.
