The exterior of this restaurant conveys the image of a bar with a restaurant tacked on. The surprise is how good the food is. Delicious Albondigas ( meatballs) , potatas bravas (deep fried potatoes with a spicey sauce) , cauliflower with pine nuts and raisins, grilled asparagus, broccolini were all delicious.

This was my first (but not last!) tapas experience! I loved the whole atmosphere of BARcelona Tapas, and I also devoured the food. My boyfriend and I ordered 4 different dishes (I can't remember what they were anymore), but we devoured every last bit. And even made room for an equally tasty desert! Highly recommend!!

We went to try this restaurant last weekend. Made a last minute reservation on open table. Its in the Clayton downtown area so parking is an issue, having valet parking is very convenient. We ordered 4 dishes and were served within the first 10 minutes, very quick service which was what we were looking for. The service was efficient and... More

Great variety of food--we shared numerous small plates--the salmon was outstanding as were the sauteed mushrooms and fried artichokes. Spanish tortilla was really good too. Good service considering we were a large crowd and they were pretty crowded. Good menu of drink options too as well as Spanish desserts--3 leches, churros, etc. The bread pudding was terrific. Would go back... More

We were looking for a better experience than J Bucks and found it at Tapas! Great food (hot , delicious, great prices)and the staff was gracious, although it was on the rowdy side ( Friday night) the atmosphere was nice and welcoming. Definitely worth another visit.

went there for lunch-enjoyed a number of the tapas selections-everyone was fantastic! The service was excellent. Not rushed-good timing. Mushrooms, assorted cheeses and hams-all outstanding This is a go to spot in Clayton.

We love this place for date night just sitting at the bar or with a group of friends on the patio. I think their lamb is second to none and when I am trying to stay vegetarian they have a ton of options to choose from. Their goat cheese and tomato sauce is delicious. Other favorites are the veggie paella... More

The food was very good, and it had plenty of vegetarian options, which is big for my wife and I. The Spinach Empanada was great, as was the Goat Cheese with tomato sauce and bread. That Goat Cheese dish seemed to be a big seller the night we were there!
