Relaxed Sunday dinner at Barcelona - awesome quality of tapas, good portions and outstanding service. Beyond attentive and personable wait staff, I was most impressed with the sincere visit by the shift manager - it wasn't your typical hit and run. If you like great tapas (like the baked chicken or beef empanadas) and a fantastic wine selection, this is... More

Barcelona offers a decent selection of wines and cocktails and delicious tapas. The servers are friendly and quite helpful when making selections.

Sharing plates is the way to go. All tasty, some better values than others. Short ribs s a good deal, fish is not! Chocolate dessert with 4 spoons tops it off. The water glasses are small and I was always out of it. Decent wine however.

One of the best restaurants in the area! My partner and I have dined there five or six times now, and each time we were so impressed by the quality of the food and the service. Not to mention there are many seasonal dishes on the menu, so each time you go there will likely be something new to try!

Barcelona in Fairfield was always or "go to" place for great food and outstanding service. The last 2 times we have been there our experience has been less than stellar. The service has been slow and sloppy. The servers have taken awhile acknowledging our presence, slow to take the order and the kitchen even slower to deliver the food. A... More

This restaurant is located in the lower level of the Hi Ho Hotel just off the Merritt Pkwy. I checked in at 3 and was starving (no lunch) so I went to the bar (being solo). Very friendly bartender served me. Told him I just wanted a snack and he made a few suggestions. They were spot on! This restaurant... More

Barcelona is excellent, but the parking lot smells like dead fish, due to the dumpsters. We literally had to hold our noses while walking from the parking lot to the restaurant. The service is great and the food, atmosphere and wine are fantastic. We will definitely go back, but they really should do something about the smell-it's a turnoff.

Amazing food and impeccable service. Incredibly accommodating to my family of 3, including our 10 month old daughter. We dined last night after the traffic on the Merritt prohibited us from continuing our journey from Philadelphia to coastal Massachusetts. This is a tapas style restaurant and the selections are incredible. The portion sizes are generous in my opinion for a... More

If you want to have the taste of Spain in CT go to Barcelona, you will get real tapas there are tapas for all the different test and the list of wine isn't very long but well chosen. So frankly with the Bistro Basque of Milford this one of the best restaurant around shelton.

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.
