Fodor's Review

Just down the street from the Picasso Museum, hanging botas (leather wineskins) announce one of Barcelona's liveliest and prettiest taverns, with marble-topped tables and walls decorated with colorful ceramic tiles; it's usually packed to the rafters with a rollicking mob of local and out-of-town celebrants. Avoid the oversweet house sparkling wine (go for draft beer, real Cava, or wine), but don't miss the pa amb tomaquet (toasted bread with squeezed tomato and olive oil) or the Ibérico ham.
