Barcelona Tapas holds a special place in my heart as the ultimate dining destination in Puerto Vallarta. From its delectable food and breathtaking views to its exceptional staff and, of course, its irresistible Sangria, this restaurant never fails to captivate me. As I sit here in wintry Calgary, reminiscing about my time at Barcelona Tapas, I am instantly transported back to its open-air setting, basking in the warmth of the sun and marveling at the stunning bay views—the very best in all of Puerto Vallarta. Conveniently situated just four blocks away from the Malecon, it’s a gem waiting to be discovered.

My go-to order at Barcelona Tapas is their tantalizing array of tapas, typically two or three per person. Sharing these small plates is not only a delightful culinary adventure but also a fantastic way to sample a variety of flavors. Every meal begins with their renowned potato salad accompanied by freshly baked bread, setting the stage for the feast to come. Among my favorites are the bacon-wrapped dates—succulent, sweet, and perfectly balanced with the savory bacon. The angus beef skewers follow, boasting tenderness and rich flavors that leave a lasting impression. Then, it’s on to the baked goat cheese served with garlic bread, alongside the difficult choice between the spicy garlic shrimp and the grilled salmon—each dish a testament to Barcelona Tapas’ culinary expertise. And to top it all off, a complimentary cream tequila adds a delightful final touch to the dining experience.

But the culinary delights at Barcelona Tapas extend beyond its menu. The restaurant offers an unforgettable opportunity to participate in Paella classes—a memorable experience my daughter and I were fortunate to enjoy. From preparing the ingredients to savoring the finished dish, every moment was a delight, made even more enjoyable with a glass of wine in hand.
