Restaurant Review: Tapas 24

Located next to the beautiful shopping street of Passeig de Gràcia, Tapas 24 is the perfect spot for some tapas during a day of shopping and sightseeing in Barcelona. In this review, I will tell you about my experience at Tapas 24 and why you should go there too!

About Tapas 24

Tapas 24 is a fun tapas bar located in the basement of a building at Carrer de la Diputació number 269, on the corner of the famous Passeig de Gràcia.

This tapas bar is run by Michelin-starred chef Carles Abellan and has been one of the most popular places in Barcelona to enjoy tapas since its opening in 2007.

The prices are somewhat higher than average, but the quality of the dishes definitely makes it worth it. It’s not for nothing that this tapas bar is consistently mentioned in travel guides!

Due to the success of Tapas 24, they now have a second location a little further away, at Avinguda Diagonal, 520.

Moreover, Tapas 24 is open every day from 12:00 pm until 01:00 am. This makes it the perfect location if you want to enjoy delicious tapas.

My Experience at Tapas 24

We came to Tapas 24 for lunch on a day when we were shopping at the stores on Passeig de Gràcia.

Due to its location in the basement of a building in Eixample, you might overlook this tapas bar, but partly because of the terrace outside and the cheerful menu boards, it’s a place that stands out.

We were lucky that there was still a spot available on the terrace, but it’s good to know that you can also sit inside behind the bar. The great thing about that seating is that you can watch the chefs work from behind the bar, which is extra fun despite the noisiness.

On the menu of Tapas 24, you’ll find all the well-known tapas dishes, plus some specialties, such as the “truffle bikini”, a sandwich made with truffle, ham, and mozzarella cheese that is very popular among the customers of Tapas 24.

We naturally ordered the truffle bikini along with some croquettes, patatas bravas (spicy potatoes), and huevos estrellados (scrambled eggs with serrano ham and fries). And for dessert, a toast with chocolate, olive oil, and salt.

Everything tasted delicious and despite the higher prices (around €20 per person), we found it very much worth it.

The service was also very prompt and correct, and from what I could hear on the terrace, they could also speak English well, which is always a plus.

So, if you’re looking for a fun place to eat tapas during a day of shopping or sightseeing on Passeig de Gràcia, be sure to stop by the tapas bar Tapas 24 and let me know what you thought.
