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.

Arrived with a friend and waited a while for a table outside on the patio. Three bales were empty so not sure what happened, we asked again and were seated. Ali was our server and she was perfect and adorable. Brittany is great also. Our drinks were amazing as well as the three tapas that we got. I love the... More

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

Love trying new things and tapas are a great way to do so. Barcelona has good food as reasonable prices. The service was good although they were a little quick to clear plates and we had to ask for spoons to use to share out the dishes. Will go back.

The food was simply amazing. They offered so many grilled options...you couldn't go wrong. Entertainment for the children as well as for the adults was included. A very low price for a wonderful event. I can't wait for next year!

Have to say-this is our new favorite restaurant in the Fairfield area. Was a bit concerned when they couldn't find our reservation on a Saturday night, but they quickly brought us to a table in this very crowded place. And no wonder since the tapas were the some of the best we've had in a long time. Tried the grilled... More
