Tried meat, fish and vegetarian dishes between us. All very good my favourite being the spare ribs, the best I've ever tasted . Busier than I expected for a Tuesday night but this just added to the atmosphere. Waitress's and waiters very polite and friendly. Choice of cheaper specials menus with drinks or more expensive main menu, would definitely go... More

Decided to arrive before 7 to take advantage of Happy Hour, so cocktails 1/2 price. Good selection of these on offer and very delicious, the trouble is the bar staff get so bogged down having to make them it does cause a hold up at the bar. Three of us had booked a table for food, but had to eat... More

Eaten here a few times and each time has been amazing so thought I'd write a quick review. Firstly the food and drink is remarkable (sangria especially) and captures the Spanish essence very well. The meals are always gorgeous and do a good job at filling me up. The service I received from the waiters was exceptional and they catered... More

If you want a nice stress free night out don't go here, I was waiting for about an hour for my food to arrive until it finally came. The only plus points were that the food was quite nice and tasty.

Having heard a lot about this place I was really disappointed with what we got. Service was poor (had to ask for our bread and drinks twice) and the food was really nothing exciting. La Tasca was much nicer when it used to be in the city centre. Shame.

Having not had tapas before I was very hesitant to visit with friends as I have coeliac disease which makes eating out somewhat difficult at times.

I have visited Barceloneta many times over the years and have always been very happy until now. I visited last night with a friend and the service was terrible. We were shown to our table and offered complimentary bread with oil and balsamic vinegar which didn't arrive for an hour. When the bread showed up it was like hot dog... More
