Met a few friends for lunch at Barcelona. We split four tapas plates all of which were very good. Our server was very friendly and attentive.

I teach at a Tech company in Shelton, CT. I have taken nearly 300 students that come from all over the World to Barcelona, Fairfield. Everyone Raves about the food and the experience!!! Those who grew up on Tapas in European countries, say that the Tapas, Sangria, Parrillada and Paella are absolutely as they would expect in Spain. Often they... More

Have enjoyed their amazing tapas on numerous occasions and would highly recommend for a date night or dinner with close family and friends. On a recent visit my wife and I ordered their paella for 2 and it was horrendous. It clearly had been left in the oven too long because it was completely dried out and the seafood was... More

Positive on all counts, Barcelona is a smart idea. Anyone who has traveled in Europe knows that tapas, or small meals in general, makes sense. Here the chef is a familiar fellow and a food magician, the waitstaff super-efficient and friendly. One of my favorite spots in Fairfield county.

Great tapas dishes to share. Good quality, well seasoned, real Spanish tastes! Also a great selection of wines. Friendly waiter (Jeff). The place is ease to find, just off the highway. There is a modern, yet cosy atmosphere. We had a high corner table in the bar area, but there are also tables for larger groups in the restaurant area.

I have not been here in 10 years and i will Go back. Natalie the bartender is wonderful and tells you what is good and what is not. I loved it. They have Topas and that is enough for 2 and you can try so many things. Great spot great people and great food. You must go.

A crowd that thinks its "good" to be snobadotious.... They really won't do well in the BIG world. Tragic because all the potential is there. Always remember, wine is grapes all crushed....not GOLD. I've been in Blue Martini's better than this place, that's very sad. Clean it up, enforce a congenial attitude, and tell the phonies to go to Dutchess.

Located in the 1940's Hi Ho Motel, Barcelona Fairfield is a funky throwback in the hills of Easton, just off the Merritt Parkway. The dining room has the feel of Fairfield County circa 1970, with private booths, vibrant wallpaper, and photographs of family and friends. The interior's main focus is the welcoming bar and the beautiful 85-seat patio overlooking the trees and the parkway is the focus in warm weather. Fairfield features an intimate private dining room and a family-friendly vibe during the week.
