Description: Opened in 1996, the original Barcelona, South Norwalk, has grown from a tiny tapas bar seating 30 to a 140-seat restaurant with two sophisticated, beautiful dining rooms and an outdoor patio. The original 40-foot-long, hand-carved walnut bar is still there, as are the young and young-at-heart who populate South Norwalk in the evenings. SoNo Barcelona showcases the old brick and raw steel of the former factory building it inhabits. It's a touch of SoHo in SoNo, with the food and flavors of the Ramblas.

“Great night out...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Lively, dimly lit place that is happening! Food is great as well. It's worth the trip to Norwalk. Just make sure you have enough money in the parking meter!

“Nice Tapas Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We sat at the bar but the restaurant looked very inviting also. The beer/wine selection was fantastic. The tapas were varied and delish! Tapas are great as you can try many items! The bartender was super friendly and very knowledgable. It is a must!

“Excellent food, loud as heck.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

I've gone to Barcelona a bunch of times. The tapas are really tasty. Beware that going there at night at the end of the week is loud!!! But that's what happens when you have great food, the people will come.

“Have the octopus!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We stopped in during an overnight in Norwalk on the recommendation of a bartender elsewhere. The food was delicious - and reasonably priced. The octopus was a highlight - which surprised us! Service was attentive and went the extra mile to allow us to taste some things before committing. It turns into more of a dance party in the late evening, with a DJ - so go earlier if you're not into that.
