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.

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

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

Description
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.
