    I am telling you this is the best restaurant I have ever been to! The tapas there is absolutely phenomenal and it is such a small and cute place. 10/10 recommend!

    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).

    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👌

    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!

    Bikini sandwich, potato braves, chocolate with salt and olive oil are good. And red berries with white chocolate which was recommended by a pretty waitress is a fantastic ending! Love it!

    Still one of the better places to have tapas and some more consistent dishes in Barcelona with a modern touch...

    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.

    Tomato salad with anchovies & cheese is a must try! The tomates burst at first bite, bringing a wonderful blend of sweet, savory with a hint of sourness - a delightful experience not to be missed!

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

    If you’re looking for a short-term sexual relationship, go for the bikini sandwich 🥪😀 It will be meaningful & life affirming

    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.

    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!

    Still a great place to have some tapas. Menu has not changed much over the years. Had unfortunately run out of some favorites.

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

    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.

    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 (!)

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

    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!

    Worth the wait, Tapas24 is an amazing tapas place which offers not only great quality food, but also keeps to its roots with traditional dishes.

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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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 :(
