“It was highly recommended but beware the stairs!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We asked several people for recommendations of restaurants with a view and they recommended Barcelona Tapas. It's only a few short blocks up from the McDonald's on the Malecon so its very convenient. It is a little of the beaten path and the sign is not easily visible until you are close by. The path is uphill and gets a little steep but that's nothing compared to the several flights of stairs you need to climb afterwards to reach the main dining room floor. The couple next to us had to stop part way up and sit for a while before climbing the rest of the stairs. The bathrooms are 1 level below the main (top) level.

The food was good and service was excellent. For tapas portions they were good size so you only order 2-3 per person instead of the 5 I'm used to when you are hungry. Everything was good. The view was nice but not as high as I expected. You just clear some of the rooftops. Part of the view is obstructed by a building right in the middle that is taller than the others.

“A great view and delicious tapas”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I highly recommend this place. I don't know if they have one bad tapa on the menu. We tried six different ones (beef, chicken, shrimp, beets, portabello and goat cheese) and they were all amazing! Try to go at sunset where you will see the sky in an array of beautiful colors! Parking is a bit tricky as the restaurant is on a steep hill and there are a ton of stairs to climb but it's well worth the extra effort in getting there!

“Excellent Tapas Restaurant”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

A bit of a stair climb to reach the dining area with a fantastic view...worth the climb. Food and service is some of the best in PV. A must for locals and tourists alike.

“Best sunset dining in PV”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Wow! The sangria, the small plate of beats and goat cheese or steak brochettes. The view! I can't rave enough about Tapas Barcelona. And my son and wife got out full and delighted for $60! Hard to beat.
