Bar Del Pla
What It Is:
Casual tapas restaurant for locals and visitors alike.
Where It’s Located:
El Born | Google Map
Why We Love It:
This is a lively, popular spot for classic tapas with plenty of room for some innovative offerings. Despite having a reputation for being good-quality and fairly priced tapas, they haven’t lost their local feel. This is somewhat rare in the touristy neighborhood of El Born.
- Mushroom salad with strawberries and wasabi sauce – it’s unusual, and also our favorite thing on the menu.
- Like most places around here, their house wine is delicious and is available by the glass.
They don’t take reservations online, so you can either call them (they don’t always pick up), or pop your head in during business hours to make a reservation. Otherwise, aim to get there as early as possible, as this place is very popular and fills up most nights. Much of the staff there speaks English.
