“Slurp!!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2015

Two of us brought a friend here tonight for a foodie birthday celebration- we found a travel zoo voucher for dinner for two for $47.50 which included two drinks, a cheese appetizer, two tapas and a rice dish and then we purchased a veggie side dish separately and one more glass of wine. The food was fabulous! The server was good and an 18% tip was automatically added to the bill.

We had a blue goats cheese appetizer, langoustines, octopus - (tender and delicious), black squid ink rice and Brussels sprouts with honey, sherry and almonds. Only small issue - the goat cheese appetizer came with two small toasts and we asked for one more toast as there were three of us - the server brought two more and they charged us an additional $1.50 which was mildly annoying. If there are three people sharing dinner at least give one piece of toast for each person! But all the dishes were amazing!!
Easy public parking across the street at $1.50 per hour. Would love to go back!!

“Delicious”

This is one of our favorite local spots. The food is great and the service is always helpful and spot on. The cocktails and atmosphere are great too. Perfect place for a fun night out with a group of friends.

“Ghost Restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2015

Thought I would check it out last night (Weds) in South Miami. The address is very complicated as it is not on Sunset Drive but on a side street two door down. Finally found it, walked in it was empty except for one table. We sat down the only person we saw disappeared after waiting 5 minutes we got up and left

“Delicious and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2015

We dined at Barceloneta, a really cool tapas restaurant, on December 30, 2014 at the recommendation of friends who live in Miami. We wanted to stay away from the craziness of South Beach. Our server was friendly and helpful, the drinks were great, and the food interesting and delicious. We had an outdoor table and although the neighborhood has construction going on, it didn't detract from the experience at all. We arrived at 7:45 and were wondering why it wasn't more crowded, but by 8:15 there was a line for outdoor seating and by 8:30 the inside tables were full and there was a roar of happy activity. We were glad we were outside as it was very loud inside. It was really great to be in an environment where the diners were seemingly happy and enjoying their experience and socializing with friends, the food was perfectly timed coming to the table, and everything was tasty. The grilled octopus and tartare were memorable.

“Great Neighborhood Tapas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2015

I was pleasantly surprised last week after looking for a unique place to eat while walking around South Miami and found Barceloneta. We walked by and by appearances in the window, it looked inviting and popular. My party of four enjoyed 7-8 dishes. The most notable were the beet salad, and roasted pork similar to pork belly. Also notable was the indifferent service, our drinks arrived late, a glass of wine forgotten all the while flagging down our waiter to place our order. Waiting for the check took an extraordinary amount of time. Overall, I would give Barceloneta another try but probably at an off time.
