In the lovely but touristic neighborhood of the Gothic Quarter, Barcelona, it might be difficult to find restaurants where they serve authentic Spanish food. We’ve got you covered with a list of the best tapas spots.
On the beautiful Plaça Reial you can find a remarkable restaurant called Ocaña. The place is named after the performer, activist and painter José Pérez Ocaña. He was often found performing around Las Ramblas and Plaça Reial and was very notable because he loved to wear make-up and women’s clothing. During the weekend, you can often find transvestites working and walking around the bar, which creates a fun ambiance. You can enjoy their delicious tapas, wines and desserts inside the stylish restaurant. Alternatively, dine on their terrace, looking over everything that is happening at Plaça Reial.
