We've been to both Norwalk and fairfield multiple times, like the food. Last night was the cold eggplant, bacon wrapped figs, bibb salad, and a tasty dish ordered as blackfish with blistered tomatoes that was not likely blackfish and was in a pesto type accompaniment....More

This place has a great vibe, especially during the warmer months when you can eat outside under a tented table. Unfortunately, the portions are small and the oroces are high. I could eat 10 times the amount they serve in one dish. It's a problem....More

I was at a wine dinner and the staff, especially the manager, Rob, did an amazing job at ensuring that everyone was taken care of and any special needs were addressed. The food, as always, was amazing and I would definitely eat there again.

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.
