The food is excellent and the atmosphere is fantastic. Great patio for outdoor dining during the summer months.

Please, please, please do not order the paella with meet balls, it's a sacrilege!!!- and... More

The Barcelona is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbus which always pleases. Tucked down in the fringe of German Village you will find a unique atmosphere inside and out, during the summer! The food is wonderful and moderately priced. An excellent bar which is sure to handle your requests! The specials are always delicious and the chef is great.... More

This is my third time at Barcelona. Given reviews, I felt like I may have been missing out the last 2 times I was here and had to give it one more chance. Unfortunately, still average. These are not Spanish tapas - I promise you, you will not find a taco on a plate in any restaurant in Spain (unless... More

The food was fabulous, I hear people in the city are spoiled for choice of good restaurants, this one certainly didn't disappoint! Everyone commented on the excellent food, great service and willing to accommodate a very large group of people which other restaurants refused. You are made feel welcome and there is a fantastic attention to detail. Highly recommend.

Located in the quaint neighborhood of German Village. Great atmosphere. Knowledgeable and friendly wait staff. I ordered the Paella de Costillas y Vieras. I would order it again. The braised beef ribs were tender. Paella was well prepared. Portions were good.

We went to dinner with friends at Barcelona Restaurant. The restaurant is located in the German Village neighborhood which means parking is limited; however, valet parking is available. The restaurant is larger that it appears by looking at the street front entrance since it is deep. The ambiance is nice but I did notice that the noise level as you... More

This restaurant is located in the German Village area of Columbus. It is actually two old buildings put together. We were there for lunch and they had daily specials, paellas, tapas, soups, salads, and sandwiches. Some in our party had the paella which looked great, I however opted for the torta Cubano (Cuban sandwich). The sandwich was excellent and served... More
