“Great variety and fun time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

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.

“Great Tapas in Evanston”

Great restaurant. They actually honor reservations! You must try the "figs with bacon", it is fantastic. They have an outdoor are that is nice. Many different dishes and make sure to try some of the specials.

“Tapas to write home about”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Many, many choices and I enjoyed every one I tried - good wine choices too. Outdoor area is very pleasant but usually busy with the Northwestern crowd. A bit noisy inside but worth the decibels. Try the real coffee shop next door and support a struggling student serving tables.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

We go here every 3weeks or so. My 9 year Los has been in love with the mussels and snails for most of her life. I have NEVER had a bad dish here. Sit outside if you can
