The menu consists primarily of 'tapas', meaning small portions of typical Spanish dishes, some of them modified and made a bit more 'refined'. We advise to order different dishes to share, two per person will be enough. High quality, good tasting wine (not so easy...More

We love this restaurant - it's a standing favorite. The food is fresh, flavorful, and fairly priced (not cheap, but also not crazy expensive). The service is cheerful and prompt. And the atmosphere is upbeat and fun.

On positive side; Food is delicious and service is great. Good location and despite it is Brookline you still can find parking. Great service, waitstaff is really friendly and professional. Negative: Very crowded place. Tapas are really small for the price.

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.
