Great chic place

We had breakfast here and sat inside on the longest table I've seen in a restaurant. Breakfast menu was great, tasty and was different to the other cafes around salamanca it also had that Spanish influence in it's dishes. The waiting staff were pleasant and accommodating, great chic setting... read more

I just left this particular restaurant, and was that disgusted with the quality of mine and my partners meals that I thought I should write this review as soon as possible. When 2 of the three tapas selections that were ordered look and taste like we are dining in the cafeteria of a palliative care unit and not an extremely... More

good place to come any night of the week, although extra busy on the weekend. Fireplace in winter a nice touch a would be better if a couple of couches were nearby - but they need all the table space! Reasonable selection of Tapas at reasonable price. I found the service to be ok, but concentrating on seating and taking... More

Yum yum - great breakfasts and awesome venue inside and out. Only complaint that there weren't cold drinks like milkshakes or iced coffees.

Walking through Salamanca, we chose to dine at Barcelona from a list of three options I had gleaned from you, my fellow Trip Advisors. On this occasion we were completely satisfied with our decision! Barcelona isn't a quiet venue even on a week night, however the food and service are the reason its owners are doing so well. I would... More

Great place for a casual meal. Waiters were lovely and helpful with tourists. Quality of food was amazing for the price. Caesar salad and tasting plate were great to share.

The food is amazing, there is no denying that. After eating our meals which were delicious, one of many people on the table had to leave early, he paid for his meal without any issues. We later then went to pay our bill and were very abruptly told they do not split bills. Which is fine but I was not... More

I was visiting Hobart from interstate for a friends birthday and our large group decided to have lunch here. Great location and quite a large selection on menu. No complaints up until it came to paying. One member of our group had to leave early and was able to pay for his meal separately with no dramas. We were all... More

Its funky, Industrial decor, huge bar, fabulous food, staff are young and service is great. The servings are of a good size and Tapa's are of a good price, share plate works well for 2 ladies but you will need extra if there are men in your group. Service is a little slow, however they are always packed to the... More
