Hi Lisa!

That is a nice area! Near Plaza Catalunya there is the Passeig de Gracia, where different tapas bars are located, such as Qu Qu, Tapa Tapa and Txapela. I think especially Qu Qu has good and tasty tapas for a reasonable price!

Have fun this weekend!

There are also tapas places, including a couple of those most popular with tourists, Cuitat Comtal and Taller de Tapas, on Rambla de Catalunya which runs parallel to Passeig de Gracia, also from Plaça Catalunya.

(You should be aware that tapas were not intended as meals and so it is an expensive way to have dinner)

We recently ate tapas for lunch at Ciudad Condal, and was very pleased with the food. Recommend to try the warm tapas dishes!

Hola Lisa!

Since you are planning a stroll along the beautiful Passeig de Gracia, I suggest you try Tapas 24. It's owned by Carles Abellan, a famous Barcelona chef (he owns Comerc24 as well, which is a restaurant). No reservations are accepted and if you go at prime time, you'll have to wait.

If I could only have one tapas dinner in Barcelona, I would probably go a bit further away from Placa Catalunya. Hmmm, I might go to La Taverna del Clinic, which is not your traditional tapas. The servings are a bit bigger, quality of ingredients higher (foie, morels, fresh seafood, oxtail, sashimi-grade tuna) and of course, more expensive. But very, very tasty.
