Cool Tapas place in the city center Jul 02, 2011
Tapas 24 is a small joint for Tapas style eating, it is situated in a smaller street but it looks very cozy. You can eat outside, on the side of the street or go down to the bar. The place is very tiny and you have to make a booking if you do not want to wait or come with more than two people.

They have catalan style tapas, in catalan they call it pintxos.

You can have meat, seafood, chicken, jamon or verdure which means vegetable. I had the lamb kebab, tempura only - since i have a small tummy. The dessert was great, I had chocolate mouse. They happened to celebrate San Joan that day, so every restaurant had their special bread called Coca de San Joan - it looks like christmas bread with sweet, nuts and fruit toppings. The restaurant did not have the traditional big ones, but it was okay. To drink, in summer I chose Clara which is the same like Shandy in other places. The price for three choices of pintxos drink and dessert could be from 20-30 euros depending what you choose. I was asked if i want bread, they usually serve it with smeared tomato - but they charge another 3 euros - is if you dont want it dont order it.

It is a fun and cozy place to eat your tapas, delicious too.

Try it.

Tapas 24 - Revisited Jan 26, 2009
I had a great experience at this place, but be forewarned - I've gotten both very positive and very negative feedback about this restaurant from friends who have given it a try.

Barcelona is full of fantastic places to eat and is the home of many famous, innovative and creative chefs. I lived there for over 20 years and know that friendliness and customer service are very often questionable, to the point where good service is sometimes more of a pleasant surprise than an expectation. Try to start out with a smile! That can really make things a lot nicer.

Anyway, one of these famous chefs is Carles Abellán, and on Saturday we decided to try a tapas restaurant that he opened, not too long ago, on C/ Diputació, close to the corner of Passeig de Gràcia. Olga has been there a couple of times and said “you have to try this!” So, we did. It turned out to be a fantastic idea. This is a place to eat great tapas, with a creative touch, made with the finest ingredients. It’s expensive, but in our case the food was good.

The décor is that of a typical tapas bar – the menus on each table are written on little black boards and are also printed on little paper bags that utensils and napkins are placed on the tables in. Check out the pictures below to see the interior. It’s a little noisy, but that’s part of the charm…

A good sign was the number of people waiting at the door. I always figure if people are willing to wait, it must be good! While we waited we had a “caña” (small draft beer). Nice and cold… After about ten minutes we were seated at a table. The waiter was friendly and made a few recommendations – we ordered a number of tapas including croquetas de jamón ibérico – Croquetes de Pernil Ibèric (Iberian ham croquettes), patatas bravas (fried potatoes with alioli and a spicy pepper sauce), a “Bikini Comerç 24 (a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with truffle for a unique touch) and something I really like – “Ous Estrellats al Gust” fried eggs with potatoes and chorizo and another plate of fried eggs with potatoes and Serrano ham. Light, low cholesterol… whatever, it was fantastic. ;-) Everything just right, the right temperature, just enough salt… served with a smile and a fantastic cold, white Albariño wine from Galicia. Fantastic.

They also have typical desserts found here – crema catalana (like crème brulé), flan, fruit…

A very filling lunch, for four with soft drinks, beer, wine, dessert and coffee came to € 84,-

Next time I'm in Barcelona, I'll give them another try and see how it is. A good reputation is really hard to get and is extremely easy to lose...

great food, great location Nov 04, 2009
Small cozy place, usually hard to find a table to sit at, the bar area you can order food as well but not as comfortable as a table. The food is amazing! The spicy patatas bravas are excellent as well as the tomato with fish roe. For dessert I had a chocolate mousse type dessert which really hit the spot. A great place to go with friends just hang out for a while and enjoy the food. Tapas 24 is located in a great area as well not too far from Las Ramblas El Cortes ingles.
