I have eaten here twice and after returning from Barcelona recently I wanted to see what was on offer in my hometown. The service was amazing, so was the food, atmosphere, drinks and music. A great night out and a lovely meal. Would recommend to all friends and family. Also.... Amazing value for money, we had a small starter, mains... More

Been to this place a number of times and always normally an okay place to eat. I was shocked this time. And although it might be unfair as I've not rated it previously I would say overall it's pretty average. Food is nothing to write home about. It isn't a taste of Spain. I've eating in Spain a number of... More

I returned here after a gap of 5 years and in the meantime, this place has got even better. The Spanish Wine Bar next door is also well worth a visit and unlike anything else in Leicester. Meanwhile the only problem @ Barceloneta is that you always order too much food. It is all good and the portion sizes are... More

Visited Sunday 10th May and was not disappointed! The food is of an extremely high authentic quality and fantastic value for money. My partner and I ordered from the 3 tapas and a drink menu for £13.95.. The portions were big and tasted great. We regularly eat tapas in England and Spain and this is some of the best I've... More

I have never been to a Spanish Restaurant before and was taken my by son and his girlfriend. We tried lots of different types of food and me being highly allergic to lots of different foods thought this would be a challenge to find something to eat. However, I was pleasantly surprised in what I found I could eat, I... More

I have been to Barceloneta quite a few times now and it never disappoints. The 2 or 3 tapas and a drink deal is more than great value for money. Each of the dishes has a homemade feel about them whilst still managing to include all the delicious flavours and I finished every little bit off my plates! The only... More

I come here every few months and I have to say that this is by far my favourite restaurant in Leicester. The food is delicious and the staff are always really helpful. The Spanish waiters help to also add that authentic feel and you can almost imagine you are on holiday. I would say though be careful not to order... More
