So when ordering soup on lunch menu it comes with two very small pieces of bread. I asked for more but the waitress said I would have to order the bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil (extra £.3.95), She would not budge to bring more bread for my soup. The first I have ever experienced this in any restaurant... More

Disappointed in visiting Barca for drinks. Comfortable seats which had been there previously have gone. Staff took an age to acknowledge our arrival and had to go myself to bar for service. Area in which we reluctantly had to stand was compromised several times with staff having to squeeze by! All in all dissapointed and wished we had chosen a... More

Ate here for lunch and enjoyed the various tapas. The mushrooms with cheese was very good as were the meatballs. Both the tort and stefado were good too. All in all, a good lunch.

Went here a couple of weeks ago for the Christmas Dinner menu. It was delicious. The choice was good and a lot better than a couple of others in the same location. It was three courses plus bread and olives when you arrive, all for £25 if I remember correctly. The prawn starter was really tasty although I would have... More

Visited for drinks on a busy Saturday afternoon a week prior to Christmas. Extremely busy, too much going on for any form of efficient service.

Went for the set xmas tapas menu as we were advised we all had to do they same thing, we couldn't order separate, we thought fair enough. Sharing platter between 4 was a joke, u didn't even get 4 of each thing to taste never... More
