Amazing choice of excellent wines (Ribera del Duero 2008), great spanish food, great service, you can even just come to buy a bottle, get it open, have a drink and take away your wine ;) And if you want it more cosy go to the Greenbelt undergraound at the wine shop where you can get the same menu, same choice...

The have a very wide variety of tapas to choose from. Order the calamares and the gambas al ajilo and you would be very happy. For pasta, you would not go wrong with their seafood clam. Skip the croquettes for it is not the same quality as the ones you would find in Barcelona.

Barcino is a great hang out place but the food is nothing to be excited about. There's so much fried food and maybe that's why it's rated so high. If you are looking for quality food, this is not the place. Great place to hang out and have drinks with your friends AFTER dinner.

We had a light lunch here and thought the food and service exemplary. The staff were polite and courteous but also extremely effective and efficient, without rushing us. You did not need to ask twice for anything and having caught the eye of the waiter, he (or she) came, were attentive and did whatever needed to be done. Water was... More

The bar was very nice with an open space. I really like the vintage-styled roof fans. It’s a cozy place to hang out with friends, and pay reasonable price.

I eat at Barcino and their various locations all the time. I recommend them for the fair selection of wine. Also they take wine seriously whenever a wine has a bad cork they will not serve it and return it. The food is good, but here are some tips: 1. ask for them to not over cook the garlic prawns...

Dropped in recently to this ambient bar/restaurant in a great setting and location. This is a very good place to unwind with friends and/or the better half. It is quite popular so fills earlyish but was still comfortable - not loud, and the wait staff are very helpful and friendly. We tried the tapas (outside of what is a great... More
