Lively atmosphere and good food!

Enjoyed a great evening with friends, all sharing a range of good food and wine. I'd visited a couple of times some years ago, and was glad to see the place still has that lively vibe and friendly staff. The décor is still quirky and 'Spanish' in style, especially love the wall tiles, and real... read more

Barceloneta is my favourite restaurant in Leicester by far, not only do I love the food but I love the ambiance of the place. We normally go as a couple and have around 6-7 dishes in total, a mixture of meat and carbs ie potatoes/rice and its always enough. The food is delicious and always served well. I really like...

I was in Leicester on a course and in the evening went for a wander to look for somewhere to eat. Stumbled across this lovely little restaurant/tapas bar and loved it so much I took my colleagues back there the next night. You go around the side and through a beautifully furnished and decorated bar to get into the restaurant.... More

We visited with our friends who all live part of the year in Spain. Food was not hot and the patatas alioli was just chips with a knob of garlic butter on top. This was returned and came back ok. The fillet steak was a bit tough too. The mushrooms were lovely. Altogether a bit mixed good and not so... More

The atmosphere and décor was so reminiscent of our trips to that great city. I loved the... More

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.
