Set on a busy yet charming square across from the 15th-century Lonja building—now used for temporary exhibitions—La Boveda serves the best tapas in town. The decor is that of the quintessential Spanish bodega: old tile floors and lots of heavy wooden tables and chairs crammed a little too close together. This place is always packed with locals and visitors, so aim to be here before 9:30 pm if you want a table—otherwise, be prepared to elbow your way to the bar and eat there. Our favorite dishes include the scrambled eggs with prawns, fried calamari, and croquettes de jamón. La Boveda's more formal sister restaurant, La Taberna de la Boveda, is just around the corner. It doesn't have the same jumping vibe, but it does have a lovely outdoor terrace.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 1:30 to 4 pm and 8:30 pm to midnight.
