Im not usually this negative but its hard to find much positive about our evening visit. The 'hot' cap was lukewarm the brownies didnt arrive and the hot chocy had a milo taste. After prompting the brownies came and were yummy. The waiter offered us the brownies for nothing. The next coffees were burnt and not nice! Then the bill... More

We came here one night of our honeymoon to Tasmania for a light dinner and some drinks. We eyed the 'pork belly with crackling' and the 'arancini of the day' and ordered it with anticipation. There were about 4 other tables on this particular night; so not too busy night, we waited around 15mins which was fine but it's when... More

We were a large group who wanted Tapas. We suggested that the waitress choose a selection, catering for GF and vegetarian. She did a great job. Everyone had a wide selection and she told us the dietary requirements of each meal as she served it, so there was no confusion. The meals were hot, well presented and tasty. The total... More

Winter in Hobart can be cold...but step inside Barcelona and feel the warmth...the fire is fantastic to sit by and as we were late for lunch the crowd had gone so the fire was ours. The staff were all very warm and welcoming, one young waitress in particular was a gem and gave us lots of good tips for our... More

We went here for Saturday night and have a great evening. The food was all very well cooked and the selection while not the biggest in choice it did have some diversity from vegetarian to meat. dishes. The Cesar salad with chicken was one of the best I have had, and the steak was also well cooked and full of... More

Went to this establishment on Saturday night with some friends and we weren't disappointed. Got there a bit early and the bar staff were gushing in their friendliness and service attitude was great. I've read some of the negative reviews on here about Barcelona's service, but on our night it was top-notch. Got ourselves a nice little tempranillo from Spain... More

Nice warm atmosphere with fireplace great bar and building. We ordered the haloumi for entree which was lovely followed by the Porterhouse steak which was cooked perfectly and tasty. My colleague ordered the... More

Nothing Spanish about this place! After a 40min wait for a tasting plate, which lacked imagination and then an hour wait for mains, the food did not compensate. The steak was nicely cooked but came with wrong sauce! Our waitress however was apologetic and friendly which went someways to improving our disappointing experience.
