We were visiting our daughter at Northwestern and went to Tapas Barcelona with her (on her recommendation) along with our 13 year old son. From start to finish, we had a great time. Very friendly service and a fantastic menu with a lot of variety. We ordered about 8 small dishes to share among us and each one was top notch. From figs wrapped in bacon to eggplant rollups to skewered beef with horseradish sauce to snails - all were excellent. Prices were very reasonable, too, ranging from about $5.50 to $8.00 per dish. I had an after dinner drink of baileys and coffee for $3.95. The restaurant has an energy and buzz to it, but not so loud that you couldn't easily talk. I would highly recommend this place and we will definitely be back.
