Tapeo – excellent tapas restaurant in El Born


As the name suggests, Tapeo is a tapas restaurant where you can enjoy some tapas. There you will be able to sample a wide variety of tapas,from the classics to the more elaborate,using old recipes.

The restaurant was opened in 2010 by Daniel Rueda and his wife, Natalia Ferran. It is located in the Born district which has established itself in recent years as one of the most popular entertainment areas in Barcelona. Tapeo is a place of tapas-worship that welcomes you with a long bar and a modern and original decor. In addition to the long bar that runs from the entrance to the back, the restaurant has a few high tables and one large table (10 seats). Daniel Rueda combines, in front of his guests, tradition and creativity with the best market produce. The result is simply excellent. If you drop into Tapeo, it will be Natalia, his wife, who welcomes you and recommends the seasonal specialities on their menu. Both of them will be delighted to share with you their little dishes and all the charm of Barcelona’s Born neighborhood.
