Traditional but served with a slice of modernity, the tapas at BarraVas are a must-try for anyone who visits Gràcia. From the flavourful coca (toasted bread with onions, grilled peppers, brie cheese and anchovy) to the classic patatas bravas (large fried potatoes topped with spicy sauce), the diverse menu is full of gastronomical treasures. There’s also great craft beer to make sure you’re never thirsty, and the best brownies in Barcelona.

Address: Carrer Mozart 16

Santa Gula

Located right in the heart of Grácia, Santa Gula is a small restaurant that will win you over in a big way. All you have to do is choose from its diverse menu, which changes every 15 days, and you’ll be sure to find yourself back rather soon to try the things you haven’t yet. In addition to a rich list of wines, this tapas bar also scores highly in the dessert department – we challenge you to find a better cheesecake anywhere on the planet!

La Xula Taperia

Looking to have a fun time with friends in Gràcia and maybe try some tapas? With its stylish interiors, relaxed environment and great musical selection, La Xula Taperia is the perfect place for that. They have excellent draught beer and offer you a bite for every drink you order. While small, the tapas are creative and very elaborate – we highly recommend that you try the tataki coca with red tuna.

That’s how the service here is – the staff is proud of their work and dedicated to making sure you have a great time. The tapas are sophisticated and presented with great style, almost as if they were art pieces. A truly unique experience that everyone should try at least once.
