I have been going to Barceloneta since it first opened more than 20 years ago and have never had anything other than a great time. Staff always great, we love tapas so this is perfect for us. The dishes are always fresh, tasty and great value. We have our favourites (4 cheese & truffle pasta included) but this weekend tried... More

I have been going here for over 20 years. It was one of the reasons I moved to this side of town. Love the garlic chips and spicy prawns. The dark rose is also a favourite.

Having visited this restaurant twice in the past year - on both visits I thought the food was OK, but in my opinion it is overrated, especially for the price. The staff were friendly. Perhaps this review might read a bit hard, but - I last visited with family on a busy Friday night - we were sat at possibly... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I am afraid to say your review does read a little hard. It would be helpful if you could have left a little more constructive feedback. For example you mention nothing about what was wrong with the dishes you had or even which dishes you had and why you felt... More

Nice atmosphere and chilled. I was expecting tapas menu at lunch but the main restaurant was closed and only the brunch menu was available. However, the choices on offer were extensive. I decided on the Bangers and Mash (not sure if that's a brunch or lunch dish)....really good dish with a choice of bangers....go for the pork and leak.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I believe your review is supposed to be the brunch service, served in our sister bar Dos Hermanos, which has its own tripadvisor page. Thank you for the kind review and I will personally pass your thoughts and kind words to the Bar manager. Kind Regards Barceloneta More

Visited with my daughter and son in law.Taking advantage of their Sunday and Monday night offers will have your table heaving, especially if you go in a group. We had 3 dishes each plus a drink included and it certainly didn't break the bank! I will definitely visit again! The food was well cooked and the staff polite and courteous.

Good place to hang out with friends. Staff was very friendly and the food was great. We tried many different tapas and we choosed 3 tapas, 1 drink combination, available on the menu. From chips, croquettes and paella, to chourizo, calamares and pollo (chicken), all tasty!

Thoroughly enjoyable meal with friends, after drinks down stairs in Bar Dos. The food was delicious, as always. There wasn't a bad dish out of our selection of 10. Despite not being a huge fan of ribs, I really enjoyed them. Service was fast and the staff were wonderfully friendly and attentive. If you've not been before then I'd definitely... More
