Description: Barcelona Tapas Restaurant & Bar has recently come under new ownership (effective 10 February 2016). Barcelona is situated in the South Marina Village at the award winning Abell Point Marina with stunning water views. The recently revamped menu showcases a range of Mediterranean inspired tapas dishes as well as a full range of main courses, showcasing local produce and great seafood. Barcelona is currently open for lunch and dinner. We serve great coffee and food and in incredible waterfront setting, so come on down try for yourself and enjoy the views.

We chose this place after recommendation and walking past it every day. The menu is up there price-wise for the 'quantity' on the tapas dishes but the quality and variety is excellent. One of the best we enjoyed in Airlie. Wine and beer list is great with many well priced Spanish choices - gives it a uniqueness in the area. Definitely recommend.

Barcelona tapas bar is situated at Abell Point Marina with a lovely view over the boats and marina. Whilst the quality of the food is good the portion sizes for tapas dishes and main meals are ridiculously inadequate. Having worked in Spain I feel this restaurant does not do justice to the tapas trade. The tapas servings for 2 people are barely enough for 1serving. Very disappointing.

Came across this bar/restaurant while we were strolling along boardwalk. Brand new establishment in a great location overlooking the marina. Decided to have a cool drink but succumbed to the menu. The gin infusions were very nice and very refreshing. We had a variety of Tapas, the crumbed aubergine, mushroom and garlic, and the goats cheese cigars. All high quality food. Service was good, surroundings excellent. Will definitely go back, maybe for an evening meal.

There are so many places in Airlie Beach with great views, but this is up there with the best, on the waterfront at Abel Point Marina near the ferry terminal. We just called in to have a drink and a snack having walked to the marina from Airlie. We enjoyed a couple of their special infusion gin and tonics, kiwi fruit and lime, and orange and cinnamon, served in pickle jars. There are many things to choose from the tapas menu. The chorizo stuffed mushrooms were a stand out. Definitely worth a look.

Fab location and fantastic food and service. We had a awesome lunch for a family of 4. Meals were a little light on quantity but quality of the offerings were some of the best we have experienced in two months of travel around Aus. Poached Pear and rocket salad was a hit along with the Chefs selection platter, the scallops were great but a little over cooked. Spanish beers were tasty and matched the food offerings. Overall highly recommended. Well done !!
