We checked into our Barcelona hotel, in the pouring rain, and stumbled down the dark cobblestone street in search of something warm and filling. What we found, instead, was something out of a Tapas Dream. The place was old school, welcoming and cozy. Our waiter explained that it had been his parents business for many years and he and his...

We stumbled across this little gem and were pleasantly surprised! Guy that runs the place was so friendly and super helpful as we weren't sure how tapas works. We had an amazing experience and would definitely go back to eat there when we visit again.

This brother and sister team has put together a wonderful selection of tapas that we hadn't tasted elsewhere. We loved the artichoke chips and the shrimp cones. We were surprised by the coupling of strawberries and mushrooms -- it worked! The service was good. A place not to be missed for tapa foodies!

Los Pergaminos is a place that really feels authentic and when entering you immediately know you're in for a treat. Our waiter was a superrelaxed kind man which gladly helped us. Tapas were beyond amazing. We had the paprika sausages, their delicious take on Patatas Bravas, real top-notch Calamares brought in a cool newspaper-wrapping and delicious croquettes. Bread and tomato... More

We found this place while wandering aimlessly looking for lunch service on a Sunday. Lucky us! I don't remember what all we ate, but we enjoyed everything. I couldn't decide on a last tapas, so the waiter recommended "la bomba," some fried thing with potato and paprika sausage (I think). Anyway, that thing was awesome! It was so good that... More

This tapas bar is authentic and couldn't be less touristy if it tried yet still catered very well for us despite our lack of Spanish. This was our second visit (first was November last year) and we had to go back. The tapas are fairly priced and generous portions. Unfortunately they had run out of the paprika sausages which we...

We were looking for a place that did traditional Spanish tapas and los pergaminos was recommended by a local guy. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it - generous portions! Great flavours, nice rioja and service was speedy and efficient. We'll be recommending this restaurant to all our friends visiting Barcelona :-) What a treat.

We have found an amazing restaurant the serves fantastic paella in the gothic quarter of Barcelona! Having sampled many paellas including the famous Valencian paella we were keen to sample the delights of Barcelona. We were struggling to find a local restaurant near our hotel ( Aparthotel Arai) and it appeared that we would have to visit Barcelonata ( the... More
