Description: 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.

“A Family Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

This is a family favorite...though I should add that generally speaking all family members are adults...and we go on a fairly regular basis. We love the food, the staff and sharing plates! During the spring and summer months you'll often find yourself eating foods that were picked that day from their own garden out in front of the restaurant! You can't get much fresher or more local than that. And the preparations are excellent! I often go with my mother when we want to share a meal but don't want to cook for ourselves. It's a real treat!

“Happening Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Always bustling with happy diners. Tapas are terrific here! Decor is very funky with a Spanish 1970"s pop art feeling.

“Terrific for after The Garden Cinema”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

There are many restaurants within a short distance of The Garden Cinema, but Barcelona is a perfect place for a meal before or after a movie. Tapas don't overfill before the movie and are perfect for after the movie. An endless wine list. Knowledgeable servers. And, if you want to talk, ask for a table beyond the bar. It's near to the kitchen but still pleasant.

“Virabrant atmosphere with good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Went on a Saturday night and was able to get several seats at the bar. A lot of energy in the main room with somewhat more reserved atmosphere at the tables in the adjoining U shaped space. Menu consisted of some starters and Salads, a large selection of Tapas and several main courses including Paella. Food was well prepared in the Spanish style. Wines and Sherry list was decent mostly Spanish as well
