Long week end in Barcelona

Thank You mielimato,

Barcelona does sound marvellous indeed. You Guys have been a great help.
I am sure will enjoy my time there,and probably more so now that I got a few pointers.

Thank you PBSF,

I hope that the guys @ Passadis del Pep speak some English ,because my Spanish is non existant.
Do you know some places to visit (towns) in vicinity of Barcelona for a days trip?
You have been a great help.
I could buy you a drink if you were in Barcelona between 15-18 September.

Thank you PBSF,

I have noticed that you have extensive knowledge of Barcelona`s/Spains hot spots. Good on you!
By the way checked the Taller de tapas menu,but they do not advertise their prices.
Passadis del Pep looks good,but noticed that you have to talk to them first before they turn your table into a buffet.Do I ask for a racion,can I return dishes that we do not like (do not eat pork), is it expensive after all?
Thanks again.

Hello!

Me and my wife are going for a long weekend in Barcelona, 15-18 September.
We are booked at Hesperia Sarria for the duration.
As this is my first time in Barcelona I would very much appreciate any tipps which you may throu my way.
I am very interested in tapas and paellas.
Read a lot in this message board about various tapas place i.e Taller de Tapas,Quimet,El Xampayet,Cal Pep,etc the food seems very nice,but as we are on a budget of sorts would like to know how much it would cost roughly to dine at these places.
Is the Bocqueria closed over the weekend?
Were is the best place to enjoy a good paella?
Thanking you all in advance.
