We had a very nice dinner here during the week. We did not have reservations and they were able to accommodate us for tapas at a table instead of at the bar. The food was very good as was the service. We were very lucky...More

Rating = Incomplete. Tried to visit on Friday 6/22/18 6:30pm. We were unable to park in the Barcelona lot (estimated less than 20 spots). The problem is that the neighborhood has no parking signs every 15 feet on public streets. Barcelona's faces the busy Western...More

We've been to Barcelona several times,and it's typically an enjoyable experience: good food, pleasant ambience and reasonably priced. This last visit we tried something different, though, and it was out-of-the-park terrific. We sat at the bar and ate from their tapas menu; it was terrific!...More

we sat in a private area upstairs with a large group. Building is old and the rooms were split which was nice because it offered some privacy. Food was great and menu had several choices. Drinks were good too.

Went here with my girlfriend for a Friday night dinner. We were both very satisfied with the food and wine! I had the seafood paella which was, overall, good but nothing special. Decent sized portion but a little over priced if you ask me. Wine...More
