Always bustling with happy diners. Tapas are terrific here! Decor is very funky with a Spanish 1970"s pop art feeling.

There are many restaurants within a short distance of The Garden Cinema, but Barcelona is a perfect place for a meal before or after a movie. Tapas don't overfill before the movie and are perfect for after the movie. An endless wine list. Knowledgeable servers. And, if you want to talk, ask for a table beyond the bar. It's near... More

Went on a Saturday night and was able to get several seats at the bar. A lot of energy in the main room with somewhat more reserved atmosphere at the tables in the adjoining U shaped space. Menu consisted of some starters and Salads, a large selection of Tapas and several main courses including Paella. Food was well prepared in... More

From the special olive oil they serve to the Tapas everything is done carefully and with style. the small plates are worthy of a full dinner, order 3 or 4 and a bottle of light wine and you have a nice dinner for 2

Have been to Barcelona many times over the years and it remains a good restaurant with solid, attentive service and good food. In an odd location in the lower part of an old motel, the restaurant and bar are cozy and inviting. There is a nice outdoor section that is open in spring and summer. One of the better restaurants...

They've got the formula right for this (now) chain of restaurants. The food is excellent and tasty. The Black Rock location is not one of their best spots - the bar is very noisy, and the area with the booths is rather depressing. However, in the summer, there is a large, outdoor terrace which is great at that time of... More

My wife and I have just come back from a few weeks in Spain, on the island of Tenerife, and in Barcelona. During this time, we have developed a taste for Spanish cuisine. Tapas, in particular, seem like a very civilized way of sampling many dishes without bloating up like a Zeppelin. Since it was my wife's birthday, we decided... More

A few of us went to Barcelona in Fairfield with the impression that it would be as fantastic as the other two I've been two in the area. We were completely wrong. There were about 10-15 people in the whole place and it took us 20 minutes to get our drink. We didn't order anything difficult, a couple of beers... More
