The restaurant specialises in tapas and traditional Catalan food and the highlights include crispy camembert, honey cod and prawn skewers. Don’t miss it!

The food at this tapas bar is very highly rated on Tripadvisor. It has a familial feel, it opened in 1929 and now run by the founder’s grandchildren. El Xampanyet is in El Born right next to the the Picasso museum thus it is ideal to visit for lunch or after a long day of touristing. Moreover, it is the place to go for the authentic feel as the food is traditional and full of flavour and expect to be surrounded by loud, chatty spaniards. Be sure to try the home made cava and the grilled squid.
