We are local and eat there at least once a month...it's our favourite. Fabulous food! The biggest problem is deciding what to choose as the menu is endless. The red wines (Spanish) are not the best and menu could do with some new world wines. Service always polite, attentive and friendly. We always have a lovely evening there.

I love this place .... The choice of food is excellent ; I've never been disappointed with the flavour and quality of the dishes. Many restaurants go through phases of good and poor quality .....but this place never fails!

You can always tell the first timers - they try to get in the front door. Sorry no can do. That's been closed off for years - entry is gained via the swing doors of Bar Dos Hermanos ( same ownership) This bar in itself is worth a look, very rustic and if you look upwards there seems to be... More

I love tapas and have been struggling to find a decent place since moving to the midlands. Barceloneta ticks all the boxes- food, atmosphere and service were all fantastic. There is a great selection, definitely something for everyone. The food was served hot and the portions were decent. The patatas bravas sauce was the best I've had and the whitebait... More

For a bill of over £200 the service was shocking. Food took ages, most of which was cold. We didn't get what we ordered. Dishes were missing. Asked to pay before we had finished eating, then moved off the table with full glasses of wine. I organised it for my nieces birthday, if it weren't for the fact that I... More

In our trade we have a mantra “the customer is always right.” However, on occasion, the customer can be somewhat less than “always right.” As a... More

Had a lovely meal for four on a saturday night. Booked late in the week and therefore didn't get a table until 9:30 but had great cocktails beforehand. The food was very good, the seafood tapas in particular is lovely and fresh. Even though it was getting towards the end of the night the staff were very attentive and helpful... More
