“Barcelona in the Caribbean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Very tasty tapas. I was surprised by the good quality Serrano ham. Good music, if a bit loud. It is a very good alternative to the food choices in Placencia

“Take a lot of money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Great food but pricey for Placencia. Great Sangria but the more expensive than I've had even in Los Angeles.

“Good but not super special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We ate here on our first night in town and got a few dishes, most of which were good, but some of which were nothing special; the lobster croquets were basically just cheese croquets, and the chocolate cake left something to be desired (though the vanilla ice cream that came with it was delicious! There was basically no one there, either, which may not be surprising for a Tuesday in September. We certainly wouldn't discourage someone from going there, but from what we here, there are better choices in the town.

“Good food, great atmosphere, awesome owners.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I had dinner with some new friends from Barcelona (Spain). We agreed to meet at this restaurant and we couldn't have picked a better choice. My friends were ecstatic to find out that the owners, Angela y Julio, were from Cataluña, just like them!. If you are looking for authentic Spanish cuisine, go to De Barcelona; plus...you'll have fun.
