Food & beer fantastic! Service a little aloof

The food here is amazing. Had a big table of workmates - oysters were fresh & fantastic, the tasting plate is a MUST, as is the Frajita burger. Wine list is extensive & has some great Tassie wines - beers on tap are brilliant. Place let down a little by some of the staff who forgot we had wine... read more

Great variety of tapas but only a few pizzas and other meals to choose from. However that being said, the food was good and wait staff were friendly and accommodating. For a Saturday night it was good to be able to stay on for another glass of wine and chat without being asked to vacate the table. A great last... More

Great food and wine. It was a good night out. The Fajita burger was amazing. Up there with the best burger I've had. I'll certainly be back.

Ha a brilliant dinner here. Shared the haloumi starter - when it arrived I initially thought that it was so small and not good value. However, it was very thick and more than enough for 2 folks with healthy appetites. I then had the carnivore pizza and my husband had a pulled pork burger. All lovely, my husband's only comment...

We where looking for a bar on a cool Friday night in Hobart and bypassed the loud busy places before we found Barcelona in the square behind Salamanca Place. There was a lovely glow inside which turned out to be the infared wall heaters offering warmth and cosiness for our evening drink. Perfect. It was full but everyone was seated,... More

Trying to get a table inside on a Friday night (without booking) bought us a sideways scorn from the waitress, but the friendly waiter outside pushed some chairs together and our group of 6 were seated. We picked a range of food, pizzas and tasting plates, beer and non-al's .. the price wasnt cheap but well worth it for the... More

Had a wonderful night here with plenty of choice for the kids and even more space for them to run around outside, making for a very peaceful evening for us! Wonderful tapas, and excellent service.

Wandering around Hobart, my wife and I decided to drop in for drinks and dinner on a Sunday evening. Service was attentive and the outdoor area was very busy. A few wines and beers followed by entree's and pizza. A great spot on Salamanca Square to spend a Sunday afternoon/evening.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming, good wine list and great variety of food from tapas to more hearty meals. My tandoori chicken pizza was light and delicious, his roast spring lamb was lovely and minty and accompanied by really interesting vegetables. We popped in on a whim and were really happy with the evening.

Food was delectable and the pork belly melted in your mouth. The whole group raved that each had the best dish. Would happily eat there again and again
