Best Tapas in Sants

Written by Garry Gallon

Imagine that one day you find yourself in Las Arenas shopping center in Sants, and you really feel like getting tapas in the neighborhood. There are so many options, it would be helpful to get some good advice, right? Luckily, ShBarcelona has searched high and low for the best tapas in Sants and we are going to share them with you!


Tapas 24

Tapas 24 appears in almost every guide to Barcelona, described as a super bar where you can try some amazing tapas. Because of this, however, there tends to be a huge wait to get a table and then actually order. The most recommended tapas here are the classic cheese and ham toasties,  the scrambled eggs, and the fantastic salads.

Tapas 24 is at Carrer de la Diputació, 269.

Quimet Quimet

Even more famous, Quimet Quimet is one of the legendary tapas bars in Sants. The family-owned bar offers high quality and original gourmet tapasThey also make their own fantastic craft beer and have some great wines. The great thing about Quimet Quimet is that that the key to eating tapas is to eat them standing up, and the owners of the bar understand this. We recommend that you go on a weekday and avoid peak hours because it is a small place which fills up quickly. Quimet Quimet is at
