Went for tapas and wine with my daughter. Having a fun time eating and chatting when we heard a huge boom and then 2 smaller ones. The lights went out. Lightening hit the transformer outside. Now the wine was good and so were the tapas. But..... They need a little more training with what to do in an emergency. No... More

Appear to have a good bar for singles. Good Tapas, otherwise just average food. Outdoor seating area, which is very pleasant.

Steve and Jose were our servers and they worked effortlessly as a team. When asked, suggested a wonderful Spanish white wine that was floraly and smooth with out excessive... More

Do not let the location at the "Hi-Ho Hotel", or the moniker "Wine Bar" keep you from trying this very good tapas-style restaurant. We tried a number of dishes, guided by our knowledgeable server, and all were very good - 'drunken goat' cheese served with a small square of membrillo (quince paste), pulpo (octopus), Patatas Bravas (spicy potatoes), calmari, manchego...

Whenever I have eaten here, it was with my brother, and the staff knew him as this is one of the places where he frequently dines. I have never been disappointed with either the food or service, but I suggest each person orders 2 or so dishes, as there tends to be enough food on the plate for sharing amongst... More

Eaten here several times. It has gone through some growing pains but has recently gotten more consistent with their food quality. The tapas is always fresh and good. The plus is they mess up the table orders often but let you keep the food and don't charge you so their mistakes turn out to be a cost savings and yummy... More

My wife and I dined at Barcelona a couple of weekends ago, we returned because we had enjoyed our meals there in the past. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated promptly. Our wait team greeted us promptly and helped us select wine from their robust list of wines. We reviewed the menu which offered some great tappas... More

Great atmosphere, especially on the patio. For New Year's Eve we sat inside where the atmosphere was great for the cold months. Consistently good food.

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.
