Barsa is a tapas bar located on the north end of King Street. Barsa is a local hangout, which has live music on certain nights of the week. Good food, good service and cold beer. Jolly Chriss.

We have visited Barsa many times and have consistently had good food and service. It's a great spot for tapas and plate sharing. We've eaten at both the tables and the bar and never had a bad experience.

Not a clinker in the bunch. We very much enjoyed all the dishes we had. The waiter was fabulous. I would have gone back if we had had the time.
