Taverna del Clínic: without a doubt, the most original patatas bravas in Barcelona. Inspired by a top chef, they really hit the spot. Sweet with a spicy touch, they come with a mild garlic-based sauce cooked in the oven for more than two hours. The sauce also includes mayonnaise, tabasco, red curry sauce, Lea & Perrins sauce, salt, pepper, a dash of whisky, sweet paprika and Dijon mustard. If you like it really spicy, go for it and ask for their supercharged version with extra red curry sauce. The finishing touch is a pinch of Pimentón de la Vera, black and white sesame seeds, chives and poppy seeds. Delicious and stylish, what more can you ask for?
Senyor Vermut: for many fans, these are the best patatas bravas in Barcelona and we can see why! Generous amounts of freshly cut fried potatoes served with homemade aioli and spicy sauces—one of the city’s best-kept secrets—together with thinly sliced green peppers. They go down a treat with the bar’s own vermouth, so much so that you can easily find yourself coming back for more week after week. Another plus? The great music that creates the perfect atmosphere for eating and drinking.
Casa de tapas Cañota: lovely sweet Galician potatoes cooked over hot coals, mmm! Now add a mild ailoli sauce and Albert Adrià’s special sauce.

Elsa y Fred: crunchy on the outside but fluffy inside, thanks to their double cooking technique. First roasted, they are then quickly fried. Their mild roast-garlic aioli sauce also has some surprising sweet touches. Their spicy sauce is another hit. Made with smoked paprika, chilli pepper, onion and other secret ingredients. The finishing touch is chives and pepper. Elsa and Fred’s lovingly made patatas bravas are truly unique—try them for yourself!
Bar Andorra: this mythical bar has been serving its famous patatas bravas in Ciutat Vella for years. Freshly cut chips served with rosemary. Mild with a spicy finish. Their mayonnaise is made with Lea and Perrins sauce, tabasco, parsley, salt and pepper. Be warned: they are very addictive.
