Here’s the thing… although Barcelona, Spain is famous for its food, it can actually be a really tough place to eat well. That’s because there are so many tourist trap tapas bars out there serving soulless, flavourless junk. And it can be really difficult to find the great places.

But fear not, having spent a lot of time in this city, I’ve finally narrowed down a list of 8 of the best tapas bars in the city. These places will not disappoint – great food, excellent wines and full of soul.

So, I hope you enjoy this tapas tour of Barcelona’s best tapas bars, which I did recently with two my colleagues from Devour Tours – my fellow Devour Tours co-founder Lauren Aloise (check out her Spanish food blog: and Devour’s marketing director Katie Stearns. Together we tackled 8 top tapas bars on what was an epic tapas tour and also a wine tour (we tried vermouth, white wine, red wine and even Spanish dessert wine). So, if you´re coming to Barcelona, check out this video so you don’t wind up stumbling into a tourist traps.

1. Bodegas Maestrazgo
2. Bodega Puntual
3. El Chigre
4. La Viña del Señor

?‍♂️ WHO AM I ?‍♂️
Hola! I’m James Blick. Spain is my passion! It’s food, its culture, its history and its people. And I get a massive kick out of sharing everything I’ve learned with visitors to this country. My mission? To help you have a true, rich and delicious experience in Spain!

I’m from New Zealand and have been living in Madrid since 2011 (which my Spanish wife, Yolanda). I’m a co-founder of Devour Tours, where we offer award-winning food & culture tours in Spain’s most delicious destinations. I’ve been featured on the BBC, CBS and Channel 4 talking about Spain and its food and I’ve also written for The Guardian, Sunday Times, El País and others about Spain as a culinary destination. And finally, I make these videos – because it causes me a lot of pain to think that people are in Spain and having a less-than-authentic experience!
