    Really fantastic tapas bar! You have to wait about 40 min but it's worth it! TryBikini comerç 24, Fricandó amb bolets and Press Iberica amb chimichurri. Pay attention to the garlic sauce (aioli).

    Worthy inclusion to any tapas list - rabbit ribs, sea bass ceviche, tuna tataki, red mullet and bikini sandwich highly recommended. Skip the chiperones & lamb. Must end with the chocolate mousse!

    The place looks like an unremarkable fast food joint,but it's much better than you'd expect - the Foursquare ranking is fair!Great staff & unexpectedly cool desserts,loved my mango with chile pepper👌

    One of the nicer places for "Catalan" tapas, à favourite. Remember that there is little to no fish/seafood on Mondays, so avoid Mondays. Everything on the menu/daily specials are very good.

    Interesting menu by a one Michelin star chef. Worth a visit but would say it is slightly over-hyped...

    Extremely popular for it's delicate balance between classic and modern. Tapas 24 is a great place to taste tapas made by true talents without breaking the bank. Read more

    The queue is kinda crazy. Perhaps a bit easier at noon than in the evening. A bit crampy but the service was fast! Anything I order was good, thank goodness for the english menu!

    Great Tapas, very friendly staff. The Bikini everyone recommends is a small and pricy dish but it worths it. Try the desserts, they have a salty dessert with chocolate, salt, bread and oil (!)

    Tapas 24! Two Estrella's while waiting in line. We ordered patatas bravas, (yummy fries w mayo and a spicy sauce), fish ceviche, prawns, fried sardines, mcfoie burger, and fried rabbit ribs.

    Chef's specials are a little pricy but totally worth it. Can't remember the name but the one with spicy sausage and honey is a must try. Very crowded so there'll probably be a line.

    Catalan and Spanish bar food, from patatas bravas (potatoes in hot sauce) to croquetas de jamón ibérico (croquettes made of Iberian ham). counter can get crowded, but take refuge on the terrace.

    Try the spanish omlette, the chorizo lentils and the salted chocolate. Really great tapas. Open kitchen too so you can watch the magic.

    Superb lunch place. Good wine + good bier + traditional tapas with a modern twist. Be there earlyish, or else: The queue as in the photo.)

    This is the tapas offspring of a Michelin restaurant and it tastes like it! Try the smashed eggs with black pudding, the bikini sandwich & the chocolate dessert with olive oil and salt

    Original Catalan recipes, great place for breakfast, lunch or diner. Try the bull tale or the omelette with xorico de Leon.

    Unbelievable tapas. Everything we got was delicious. Bikini is amazing, as were the fries, and a daily special -- Mexican tacos. Highly recommended. Delicious sangria too!

    Teeny little tapas bar with a fun and innovative menu. Amazing Bikini sandwich with buffalo mozzarella, jamon and black truffles. Get there early as it is BUSY!

    One of my favorite meals in Spain. Amazing food and fun atmosphere. On my first night in Bcn I met two locals here who took me under their wing, including taking me to another great bar afterward.

    Limited tapas menu for breakfast, but you can still order the Bikini sandwich and Mc Foie burger - both are delicious!

    Day one - 1.30pm: A short stroll seawards from here will take you to Tapaç24 (0034 93 488 09 77; carlesabellan.com), one of the city’s best tapas bars, but get here well before 2pm for a seat.

    Good Spanish tapas a good price! I really liked this place, I think it's unique the way the bar is placed and they have a lot of movement everyday

    Awesome food with very friendly staff. Leave room for dessert: chocolate ganache, soaked in olive oil & sprinkled with sea salt is AMAZING.

    Favorites like Iberian ham served on pan tomaquet are apt to increase the odds of a second visit. Romantic dinners typically end with Tapas24’s classic dessert.

    Wasn't too sure about this place considering we saw it in a travel book and the location, but was very good food and we were pleasantly surprised.

    Little bit expensive for tapas. However if you're on your holidays well worth a visit. Personal favourite was the ham egg and chips.

    One of my favorite 'tapas' place in Barcelona. Quality, originality & good service. I recommend you to try the eggs with fries and 'butifarra'!

    The Ceviche, Atun and Bikini (truffle, iberico, mozzarella) sandwiches are heaven! Skip the Gambas, for 10 plain (rather small) gambas they're not worth it.

    Should you wait half an our? Yes. Should you enjoy glass of wine or sangria while waiting? Yes. Should you order bikini, hamburger and potatoes? Yes. Yes. Yes.

    The food is really good. Try bikini with truffles. The only problem is the space-very small and crowded.

    Cute Tapas place with very traditional dishes and service...try to the frois gras burger, spicy lamb skewer, patatas bravas and many others...service is too slow though!

    Small plates and truffle-laced ham-and-cheese sandwiches are chased with balls of chocolate mousse at chef Carles Abellan’s popular venue.

    Gets really busy so expect to queue out of the door at 9pm. But worth a wait and there's plenty of entertaining food-watching to keep you amused.
  • Ellie S.
    Lamb skewers are amazing. Don't be put off be the way tie pace looks. It's very unassuming but delivers a surprising gastronomic punch

    Best Tapas in Barcelona. Great service. Try the chocolate with salt and olive oil for a new dessert experience.

    A little touristy, but fast and seriously delicious. Recommend: bikini, lentils, egg/potatoes/ham, Mexican tacos. Yum!
  • Sarp E.
    Extra ordinary interpretations of traditional tapas. Delicious 😋 get everything! Don't forget the Russian Salad and Jamon 👌🏼

    This place is a bit too expensive considering the wide array of other options at its price point, but the dessert of chocolate ganache with olive oil, salt, and crostini will stay with me forever

    Went to eat here after two years again.. Got to say the bikini sandwich stole the show again! So delicious, simple and addictive. The ceviche and la bomba were not as good as they were previously :(
