Great view, food and service. It was a little windy so they offered to move us without complaint . The beef short ribs with mashed potatoes was to die for! The salad was also delicious and very fresh. The waiters were very professional and handsome!!

Barcelona Tapas Located four blocks from the Malecón, here you will have the best view of the bay in all of Puerto Vallarta. The chef/owner, William Carballo, sees to it that every guest in his restaurant is happy, offering generously served dishes with fresh, high quality ingredients at reasonable prices. It is recommended to order for the entire table and share dishes family style. With two or three tapas per person, you can enjoy an authentic culinary adventure. They are always updating the menu and offer daily specials. Also enjoy delicious salads and scrumptious desserts such as the chocolate profilerols and homemade ice cream.
