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

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...

We therefore took the time to review our CCTV footage, and to interview all of our staff,... More

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.

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.
