Description: 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.

This is one of several Barcelona restaurants in the area, all of which are good. Owner has done a good job on the ambiance, the food and the wine list. Often have good Catalan/ native Spanish dishes and some of the wine choices are spectacular. Try the Vina Izadi, if they have it - great red to go with a... More

Owner was very relaxed and welcoming during our restaurant week dinner. We were seated outside the bar area, but it was still a bit loud. We had two tapas and a paella which were all delicious! Sangria was a touch sweet for our liking but overall a great place. We will return!

Yes, it's a chain, but you wouldn't know it (except maybe by the smooth operation). For starters, the wine list is one of the best I've seen, and -- compliments to the buyer -- there is a great deal of regional wine from Spain and Portugal. (Don't overlook Portuguese wine.) The outdoor dining is super pleasant, and if you're with... More

Barcelona has now reached "chain" status but has remained an excellent spot for authentic Spanish cuisine. Best is to go for the tapas as the large plates are somewhat limited. We like the tortilla, the Gambas with garlic and the Meatballes. Good selection of wine as well.

We have just moved to the area and driven by this place several times, always wondering what could be there as it looks incongruous with the older hotel and the big crowds and the signs saying "fresh vegetables." We finally checked it out, made a reservation and took our two teens and my parents to dinner there on July 4th.... More

This place used to be amazing. I went for a birthday dinner with 10 friends and the quality has gone down the tubes. So disappointing. We ordered about 10 different tapas and all around they really had much to be desired! The only good one was the steak. The white sangria was terrible, ordered by the glass, so we decided... More

I have been to various Barcelona restaurants in CT and still do not get the hype. It is decent at best, and frequented by people who are told it is good and they believe it. Visited the Fairfield location this week to meet friends. Incredibly overpriced bottled beer. Noisy even away from the bar. Tapas was about average Calamari was... More
