“Coming back again...”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

4 years has been since I went to Tapas Barcelona and I was amazed to all the changes (for good) the kitchen has been redone new floor plan and it is completely renovated the atmosphere is very pleasant and also the service was as good as always. However the best part is the owner that is a simple humble man very friendly. The food was very good however I believe the portions can be a bit bigger. The place was not packed but I advise to make reservation if you want to get a sunset table. Also you have to climb some stairs to get to the top but the views are worth it...
Hope in another 4 years the place continues to thrive...

“Ok but not great cause staff were quite grumpy with us a large family group!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

As stated we were a large family group looking for a great tapas experience - some elements of the meal were excellent others mediocre! Setting the scene - torrential tropical rain storm. Restaurant is up very steep slippery steps and 2 of our group fell before reaching the top terrace where the wet floor warning sign was positioned! The maitre'd grumpily warned us the floor was wet but too late we've got the bruises!
The view of the town and hotel zone was great.
Potato salad and bread to start delicious as was the Sangria. But the salad wasn't replaced when asked even though there was a large group of us. Large portions of all selections allowed us to share the tapas but too much ordered meant doggy bags were required.
Would recommend but beware of the staff's moodiness!
Also expensive for what we had.

“Stunning”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

A little taste of Spain in the middle of Puerto Vallarta. We had an amazing dinner which included the seafood paella. The view was special and we were fortunate to have an amazing sunset.

“Great sunset views...average food”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The only thing this place really has going for it are the views... PVR is a foodie haven and there are better places to eat minus the views. Come here for drink and appetizer but eat somewhere else as the food is average at best
