“Great Food and Nice Views”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Went for dinner with a large group. Sat on the roof and enjoyed hearing the entertainment below. Tapas were delicious! Especially enjoyed the potatoes, beautifully presented beets, and shrimp. I cook paella and am quite picky about it. Having been disappointed by the paella in Spain, I enjoyed this dish, although I could have used more pieces of the sausage. Fried bananas were my favorite dessert. It really is a lovely venue! The place was hopping...and the action was recorded by a drone which flies around PV at night, taking video to post all the great things happening in this lovely town. Check it out!

“Amazing Tapas!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Great Tapas and nothing but amazing views! The white sangria was electric green which I found weird. My favorite tapas was the Goat cheese cooked in marinara sauce. It was different and exceptionally good! Three girls ordered five tapas which was plentiful! I didn't try the red sangria but after seeing the electric green white sangria, i was a bit put off.
The view and the breeze coming in from the water was breathtaking! The restaurant is tucked away in the residential area and a couple of blocks away from the boardwalk. It's worth going to and not the typical touristy food places on the boardwalk. Highly Recommend the place!

“Great dining”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Went for an evening of dining a little before sunset. The view of the bay is fantastic. Made reservations and were seated immediately on arrival. Very good selection of wines available. The food is Spanish tapas with many to choose from. Start with an appetizer and select another 2-3 dishes to split with each other. You can always order more if you would like to do so. Leave room for one of their fantastic deserts! The desert goes well with their delicious coffee. There is never any rush to hurry you out so you can relax and enjoy the food, drinks, view, and we even saw mariachi's while we were there. The wait staff and chef are first rate and know their crafts. They even served a complimentary after dinner drink to end the dining experience. The young men at the street open your doors on arrival and hail a cab if you need one on your departure.

“Flamenco Night Delight”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Nine of us went to Barcelona Tapas for dinner and the flamenco night show and you couldn't have asked for a more delightful evening. Everyone picked one or two tapas to share along w/ the larger portions of paella. Several bottles of wine and a couple of margaritas topped off a very nice evening. Every dish we ate was excellently prepared and very tasty. We had fish dishes, mushroom dishes, beef and pork…you name it, we ate it. This place is a bit crowded so reservations are a good idea. The staff is excellent and very helpful in assisting you selecting the dishes you're sure to enjoy. If you're going out to dinner in Puerto Vallarta, Barcelona Tapas should be on your short list of not to be missed restaurants!

“Best in Puerto Vallarta”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Pasta is highly recommended and the atmosphere and view is excellent. Just a little off the road which makes you feel like you have found a diamond in the rough. Will be back. Our server Basenta whom was born in PV made dinner a pleasure.
