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.

The immediate atmosphere of the location is somewhat unappealing, but once you enter the restaurant there is a beautiful patio with nice ambiance.

Kimberly, Thank you for taking the time to review your last visit with us. I am so glad that you enjoyed the food but am disturbed by the service that you received. That is far from the experience we want our guests to have and I am sorry that we fell short for you. If you wouldn't mind I would... More

Located in the old Hi-Ho Hotel complex, just off the Meritt Parkway in Fairfield, this is THE place for tapas in this area. Delicious selections and good service. Nice wine list with several great Spanish selections. Always a pleasure. Muy bueno in my experience.

This is one of several restaurants in a local chain, and they are all fantastic. First of all, the food. Exceptional at every turn. Tapas are small portions which we typically share, and which literally offer a bite or two for each person at a table for four. But the preparation and creativity of the dishes more than compensate and... More

They had plenty of options for tapas for vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians. All the food was super tasty and made with love. A great date place!

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. The wine list is good and the drinks are potent, I like the Sangria too although it could use a bit more fruit. The biggest problem is the... More

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.
