View alone 5⭐️, service great, disappointed with food after reading reviews. We were looking for a slow casual meal with drinks. When ordering, we were told all items would be delivered at once. We were looking for tapas style the would come as ordered. We...thought the cheese plate would a good starter and asked that it be delivered first and delay other items. When it came, it was a cheese PLATE!, 12 slices of cheese spread on a plate with no fruit, crackers or croutons. The shrimp and crab croquettes next were finger sized deep fried minced shrimp and crab in a mushy consistency. We had asked the waiter about the beef skewer and suggested the fillet option instead. When it arrived it was a 10 ounce tenderloin fillet entree. We had ordered med rare and it was med well. They graciously took it back and we sat for 15-20 minutes with no food and when the replacement arrived it was a Tender tail! Grilled like a small roast! That cut should be a by product of processing the tenderloin to be used in dishes such as Stroganoff not a $50 steak! The view and our 40th Aniversary saved the night!More

Good food, good service, live music. Good size portions ... Ordered 6 tapas for 4 people and were too full for dessert. Ajillo shrimp were good, as was the chicken skewers and the croquettes. Had a bottle reasonable priced Chilean chardonnay as well. If you...are walking up from the beach at night, it's one block further up the hill than you'd like. The music through the speakers was a little loud for conversation, but other than that, very nice dinner overall.More

Juan, Aristeo and Jose took fantastic care of us all night long. We had heard from multiple sources that the food and the view were terrific, but the service is what made the night so special. We were celebrating a friend's engagement and the entire...staff went above and beyond to make it an incredible evening. Juan welcomed us warmly and told us about the restaurant and the food, introduced his fellow servers and gave us suggestions of his favorite tapas. All night, they were checking in on us, constantly refilling our cups with sangria. Each of his suggestions were spectacular - the highlights were the octopus, the eggplant, and the mixed paella. This was by far the best meal we ate in Puerto Vallarta. Additional highlights: live music, beautiful view of the coast for sunset, fireworks, and a photographer! Note that it is cheaper to pay in USD - if you pay with US cash, they have a very generous exchange rate (20 pesos to 1 USD)More

A charming elegant restaurant with terrific foods influenced by the Spanish flavors but not excluding fine fresh and tasteful foods. The staff is first rate and expect excellence in wait staff. Fredirico set the stage wonderfully for our anniversary and our 4 th trip here...in 20 years. If they’re open we’ll be back in the future.More

This was one of the best dining experiences we had this year in the two months we were in Puerto Vallarta. I have one complaint and actually have spoken to many people about this and they all felt the same. I do not understand why...they will not give separate bills at a table. We were with another couple who are very good friends but our appetites are very different. As a matter of fact the most expensive dinner we had in the entire two months. We dined at several high end establishments. We are not frugal but want to go out for dinner and be able to order exactly what we want and not feel we are being subsidized by our friends or vice versa. Barcelona Tapas was the only restaurant who would not give two bills. Can anyone explain why this would be? We want to go back next year but unless this policy changes we may have to reconsider or go alone ( which we do not want to do). Thank you.More

This place was better than advertised. Great atmosphere with food to match. Also, the band was phenomenal. They took complimentary photos and offer an after dinner libation free of charge.

We went to Barcelona Tapas for dinner and were immediately impressed with the view! The space itself is beautiful and there is art everywhere. The tapas themselves were very good. The beets were delicious as was the tenderloin with fava beans. The baked goat cheese...was good but not exceptional. The white sangria was also very good. The downside was the service. Hector started out great but then as the place got busier, he forgot about us. I asked for the check after dinner and a full 25 minutes later he finally brought it. It was a bummer of and ending to an otherwise nice evening.More
