It was hard to decide how to rate Barcelona. I'm not sure my review and my rating match up since I had a lot of criticisms. But, they were all minor, fixable, so I did want to give the place the benefit of the doubt. It has the potential, with a few teaks, to be very good, but as it... More

My wife and I dined here a few weeks ago-probably the third time in a year. She had a premium tequila which was priced on the menu at $15. She had it on the rocks and our bill showed it as $17.50 at the end of dinner. When questioned about it, the manager archly pointed out the menu fine print... More

Don't let the Hi Ho Motel location fool you. This is a first class, moderately priced restaurant with a welcoming bar, various dining rooms areas and outdoor deck dining. The tapas menu offers so many selections. Unlike other tapas places I have tried, Barcelona does not rush you. The wine list is extensive and reasonable, and on Sundays the bottles... More

Was recently in Fairfield to meet up with friends, it was quite late and we were hungry and Barcelonas was suggested. So glad to find that they were still serving food after 10:00pm. The place was really quiet, unusual as my experiences there found it usually packed. The service was really friendly and accommodating, even with the late hour. The... More

My friend and I went out to celebrate a birthday and we chose Barcelona. It was my first time there but so impressed. We chose to sit outside. The food was delicious and so was the service. I have a special dietary restriction and our server was so knowledgable of the menu that he was able to tell me exactly... More

Barcelona is one of my favorite restaurants in the ffld county. All locations have absolute amazing service and food. I usually go to the one in ffld bc I like the setting of the outdoor patio. The wine selection is amazing. Along with the sangria seasonal selection. The place is good for tapas and large plates. The crepes are absolutely... More

Tapas were great, needed help interpreting the menu though. Bar tender was very helpful with this. Food was AMAZING! I tried food outside of my comfort zone and loved it.

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.
