Apparently they didn't roster more staff on a balmy Thursday night so we waited and waited for service. Sharing plates were tasty but despite nice outdoor ambience we left after our first drink

My husband and I dined here last night and were very impressed with the food and drinks available. The menu is not ideal for those on a budget and the portions are small, but the favours and exquisite preparation justify the price. I have had salmon numerous times, and yet I would have to say that Barcelona's dish was by... More

Came here for an early dinner with family and decided to share 5 tapas and sides. The calamari (delicious), the roast pumpkin salad (with a nice lime kick to the dressing), the grilled mushrooms (beautifully seasoned), spiced pulled pork (something different and would be delicious in the burger) and arancini balls. The arancini were the only downside to the meal.... More

We have selected the Barcelona Restaurant out of the Blue and it did not disappoint us. I was impressed with the friendly service and the food selection, even more so with the vegetable selection that had not the usual Aussie carrots, potatoes and beans but instead broccolinis, capsicums, mushrooms and eggplants plus a sumptuous spinach leafs salad. The wine was... More

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 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
