Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: Opened in 1996, the original Barcelona, South Norwalk, has grown from a tiny tapas bar seating 30 to a 140-seat restaurant with two sophisticated, beautiful dining rooms and an outdoor patio. The original 40-foot-long, hand-carved walnut bar is still there, as are the young and young-at-heart who populate South Norwalk in the evenings. SoNo Barcelona showcases the old brick and raw steel of the former factory building it inhabits. It's a touch of SoHo in SoNo, with the food and flavors of the Ramblas.

“Excellent food, loud as heck.”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

I've gone to Barcelona a bunch of times. The tapas are really tasty. Beware that going there at night at the end of the week is loud!!! But that's what happens when you have great food, the people will come.

“Have the octopus!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We stopped in during an overnight in Norwalk on the recommendation of a bartender elsewhere. The food was delicious - and reasonably priced. The octopus was a highlight - which surprised us! Service was attentive and went the extra mile to allow us to taste some things before committing. It turns into more of a dance party in the late evening, with a DJ - so go earlier if you're not into that.

“True Tapas”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

If you are in search of a true tapas restaurant, this is your place. I was recently in Spain where I had amazing tapas, so my expectations were heightened. i am so glad to say that they lived up to my expectations! If you are looking for something fun and laid back this is your place. You must have the chorizo, papas bravos, and the mushrooms and goat cheese. Start there!
