Located in the 1940's Hi Ho Motel, Barcelona Fairfield is a funky throwback in the hills of Easton, just off the Merritt Parkway. The dining room has the feel of Fairfield County circa 1970, with private booths, vibrant wallpaper, and photographs of family and friends. The interior's main focus is the welcoming bar and the beautiful 85-seat patio overlooking the trees and the parkway is the focus in warm weather. Fairfield features an intimate private dining room and a family-friendly vibe during the week.

Barcelona is half there. We like the tapas very much especially the Gambas, the meatballs and the Tortilla Espana. We don't love the main dishes much although we occasionally order the steak.

Four of us went to Barcelona on Saturday, in the snow, to celebrate a birthday. Three of the group had a selection of tapas, which were delicious as always. These are always wonderful small plates of tasty delights. But, one of the party decided on two cheeses and a serving of speck. The three came out on a wood board... More

We've been several times so there must be some allure, it's just hard to pinpoint since nothing really stands out. Food is interesting and consistently well prepared. Flavors you don't find just anywhere -maybe that's what brings us back. Never had a complaint but it never makes it to the top of our "let's go out" list. We'll go again,... More

Barcelona Restaurant is in our neighborhood, and we go there when we want something different, or sometimes if we don't want a big meal we go there for tapas. It has a young, fun vibe, with lots of wines and tapas, which are fun since you can taste several different ones. It can get noisy; the tables are close together,... More

My experiences at Barcelona have ranged from fair to excellent depending on whether I pick the right Tapas. I'm adventurous, so I frequently like trying new or different things that are on the menu. The value for the quality of food you receive has always been good. Nice to have this restaurant in our neighborhood.

Barcelona was once a vibrant restaurant that guaranteed a great time with good food and service. It has steadily declined over the past year. The wine list is interesting, but wine by the glass is very pricey (for inexpensive Spanish and south American wines!) with a short pour. The food is interesting, but overpriced as well. All can be overlooked,... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your last experience with us. We pride ourselves on providing a fun dining atmosphere with great service and a good value and we clearly failed you in these goals. If you wouldn't mind I would love to get more details about your last dining experience so that we may correct our mistakes... More

There are a number of Barcelona restaurants in CT, and I think one in New York state. I've only been to the ones in Fairfield, Norwalk and New Haven. Each has its own atmosphere, but they serve consistently fine food. The Fairfield version has a good bar scene plus regular seating and outdoor dining in the summer. It's lively and... More

We've been here a few times. The menu is very good - lots of tapas choices. You can order simple off-menu items for kids (i.e., french fries, pasta, etc.) which is nice. The food/ service are consistent and very good, as is the Sangria. I find it a bit pricey though. Last time we ate here, the kids got kids... More
