The food was good and fairly authentic. The staff was very professional. The noise level was high and not conducive to conversation. Overall, a nice place.

Arrive early on a weekend evening because this place can be hoppin! The atmosphere is fun and the sangria is excellent! There is a nice variety of moderately priced tapas. A shrimp and sautéed garlic which makes you want to lick the plate and a goat cheese melted with a delicious tomato sauce the leaves you asking for more bread.... More

This actually was only my second run at a tapas place (the first being in New Mexico). I ate here with my wife, 2 adult children, and my mother-in-law. It definitely has a party atmosphere, with a very large party (15-20?) right next to us. So, it was very loud. There is a wide variety of dishes to choose from.... More

Tapas, but had Paella with ham and cheese appetizer. Was like Prochuito and the cheese was great. Paella was like a Rissoto recipe, good and filling

My sister and I dined here several weeks ago and had a terrible experience. We had reserved a table, but due to a large party in the main dining room, we were seated in the bar area. Our table was next to a half-wall near the kitchen. To monitor what was going on the manager was leaning against the wall... More

If you'd like to experience some authentic Spanish cuisine you need to visit this restaurant. Order the marinated olives and toasted almonds. If I lived in Clayton I'd be eating here once a week.

My daughter’s interest in trying new restaurants with a claim to providing gluten-free meals took us just to the edge of Saint Louis in Clayton. Clayton is an upscale area with a business district and a large number of restaurants intermixed or ringing the area. One such street is Central Avenue which has a number of shops, bars, and eateries.... More

We really liked that there were many choices that were traditional, Spanish tapas like quest de cabra, tortilla espanola, albondigas, etc. The churros were AMAZING. And I'm a churros snob. It is more of a bar vibe (like in Spain) but outside seating is quieter. I'd say if you are familiar with a true Spanish tapas bar, and like it,... More

This place was VERY noisy, even tho we dined early and the place was nearly empty. The service was fine, altho a bit rushed, but the food was just average (not horrible, just nothing exceptional) You should go to this place with a bunch of friends for drinks and tapas to enjoy the company and not worry about being a...

Barcelona is one of the best tapas restaurants I have been to. There is a reason it is usually the most packed places in Clayton! The menu has a lot of variety for both meat-lovers and vegetarians. Personally - I cannot get enough of the curried Spanish chicken salad. The service is great (we were running late and they let... More
