This tapas bar is wildly popular with lines out the door at opening. Be sure to come early to snag a seat! If you have to wait, it is certainly worth it for their house made wine and wide selection of top quality tapas.

4. Bar Roure

An old school neighborhood bar, the food is always good and is a jealously guarded secret by Barcelona natives. This bar has one of the best paellas in the city but make sure you come on Thursday as it is only served once a week!
