Barcelona’s top tapas restaurants

Spanish restaurants and cuisine, in general, are nothing without tapas. It’s known even by the people that haven’t even been to Spain. It’s kind of a snack or an appetizer. You can eat it cold – for example, cheese and olives, or hot – like “chopitos” that are battered, fried baby squid. Tapas is derived from Spanish and Portuguese languages. It means “to cover”.
