We sat outside and sampled 5 different tapas between two of us. The beets and feta were so fresh and the pistachio vinegarette was perfect. The chorizo with sweet and sour figs was to die for. The wait staff was very attentive and recommended two...More

We visited this excellent tapas restaurant at the end of a long day of moving. The atmosphere is sophisticated, and it's popular enough that you should plan on making a reservation (a very long line developed shortly after we lucked into a table). There were...More

Barcelona meets Brookline, and a sophisticated Boston neighborhood has a wine bar to call its own. A historic town located minutes from downtown Boston, Brookline is the perfect mixture of urban and country living. From large estates and recreational parks to boutiques and pedestrian-filled streets, Brookline offers a city atmosphere in a suburban setting. Located in Washington Square at 1700 Beacon Street, Barcelona is the newest addition to this lively neighborhood dining destination. A mix of antique wire glass, steel and reclaimed wood gives our newly built space a vintage appeal. The rustic, polished environment is the next best thing to eating tapas and drinking wine in our restaurant's namesake city. With hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious patio, the space has a European charm which fills the menu as well.
