Taller de Tapas used to be an old favourite of ours when at the flat. There are a few Taller de Tapas restaurants in Barcelona (there´s also one in The Born), but the closest to the flat- around 5 to 10 mins walk away, is the Taller de Tapas on Rambla de Catalunya.
Sadly, this restaurant has gone downhill in recent years. The one in Born is OK, but we’d avoid the Rambla de Catalunya version. The food’s still pretty good, and the staff are friendly, but the service is hopeless!
Here’s what happened the last time we visited in October 2012
Ordered wine and water. Just got the Wine.
Ordered tortilla de Sobrasada (Mallorcan Sausage). Got a plain tortilla
Ordered calamares- they didn’t arrive.
Ordered the bill. It included the calamares that hadn’t arrived.
Asked for a revised bill.
After 15 minutes we gave up and paid at the bar.
It’s a shame- this used to be good, but maybe we keep getting unlucky. If you want tapas close to the flat, we’d recommend the following: read our Cerveseria Catalana Review. But get there early (at least before 1.30).
