Had another great meal at Barceloneta last night. Had my favourite patatas bravas and a really nice glass of wine. The meal deal is really good value. The staff were helpful and friendly and very smiley and the atmosphere was relaxed and Christmassy. Would highly recommend.

We had booked early as this is a very busy restaurant and I would advise anyone to book in advance especially at the week-end. Serving staff were very helpful and friendly, we just went for several... More

I eat here more often than most and have never had a bad experience. I've eaten in a small table of 2 up to a table of 40 with friends. Tapas is delicious with lots of choice and the sangria is amazing! I take everybody to this place and suggest you do too!
