BARcelona Tapas - Indianapolis
Very GoodAuthentic tapas restaurant, delicious food and sangria. reasonably priced.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!!!This is a great restaurant with a lively decor. On a nice day, multiple doors to their patio are kept open and diners get nice breezes and fresh air. Occasionally, the street traffic can be a little loud. Our favorite dishes are the cod cakes, fried artichokes, garlic bread and chicken skewers. This last visit we had the lamb which was perfectly cooked and served with two delicious sauces. The wine is well priced and they have a large number served by the glass. The only disappointment here was the mixed drinks. We tried a Mojoto which was much too sour even after they added extra sugar to it. I would highly recommend this place. Sampling many different dishes is so much fun. They are all so tasty!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTapas in the MidwestTapas restaurants in the Midwest, barring Chicago, are few and far between.this little neighborhood gem turns out a host of dishes with flair and aplomb, provides terrific service and is reasonably priced.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a good offering foralways a good offering for brunch. they do not over book so there is a nice sense of space. keep up the good work.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Very Happy Mother's DayI have been to this restaurant several times before, and have enjoyed it every time. I was excited to take my mom to the brunch buffet as a Mother's Day gift (we try a different buffet every year). I was blown away by the quality and selection of food at Barcelona Tapas. There were breakfast options like eggs Benedict and tres leche french toast, but also lunch options. The prime rib was a highlight. It was so tender. There was a fantastic array of charcuterie, and I barely had any dessert because I filled up so much on fresh mussels, shrimp, and calamari. The bloody Mary bar was also a really nice touch. It was a packed house and I am glad that I made reservations. My mom said it was her favorite holiday buffet thus far.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was all fantastic! TheIt was all fantastic! The service was good, and the food was amazing! I'll definitely come back, and I would recommend it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!Great service and great food! One of my favorite places! I tell people about it all the time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery GoodI have been wanting to come for a long time and I'm glad I did! The only complaint I have is that I was unaware that on Sundays the only thing served was brunch and it was a bit more than I had anticipated price range wise. But the food was delicious and the service was wonderful. I will definitely come back.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly food and atmosphereWas at dinner with friends to celebrate a new job. The waitress had not opened a bottle of cava before, and while that can be awkward, it became an opportunity to interact with the waitress and aded some fun. The tapas menu is ideal for a group to interact and share. The only "disappointment" was the very large desserts- seemed out of scale to the small plates- but was happy to take leftovers home. :)5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls Night Out!I tried Barcelona Tapas for the first time last week. It was AMAZING! It was so much fun picking out a few tapas for all of us to share. Two of us got the Malbec which was perfect, and one of us ordered a yummy Margarita. The service was outstanding. The food was delicious, flavorful, and the serving amounts were just like you would expect with tapas. We will definitely be back!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious small plates andDelicious small plates and amazing service as always! Make sure you ask to sit in Christina's section.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated a friend's birthdayCelebrated a friend's birthday and had a great time....great sangria and martinis. Started with the goat cheese & tomato sauce dip w/garlic bread and split the beef tenderloin in red wine w/blue cheese, spicy meatballs & the veggie paella. Also try their churros or tres leche cake(soooo moist) My fav veggie dish is the chick peas & spinach w/garlic, olive oil & lemon....never thought I would ever say that but they're great4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, unique food. WonderfulGreat, unique food. Wonderful place for dinner with friends.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTops for Tapas!If you like tapas, this is the place in Indy. They have a large assortment & our group tried about 7 or 8 different kinds. They were just the right size for everyone to try a bite. All of them were delicious! The chilled garlic potato salad was surprisingly like regular potato salad, just with more garlic & was a perfect side dish to all the meat dishes we ordered-the sausages, filet, tuna, beef kabob, serrano ham, & empanadas. We also had an order of the garlic bread that was very tasty.
I was hoping to try a caipirinha from the drink menu but they were out of simple syrup. It's easy to make so I think they could have tried a bit harder to make some up-we were there for 2 hours.
We had to try the Tres Leches cake too but the portio4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Spanish food!Always on the lookout for great Spanish restos whenever we go out of town and this one did not disappoint. Had the crispy artichokes (first that I've tried), albondigas, and calamari which were fantastic. Also had the beef brochette and paella valencia which were ok. Did not like the bread pudding much but tres leches were yummy. Our server was also charming and attentive. Would probably be here often if I didn't live 2 hours away!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had Easter Brunch and theWe had Easter Brunch and the buffet was incredible, with authentic chorizo sausages and cheeses, dozens of dishes of all kinds that were fabulous, and wonderful desserts. The wait staff were attentive, warm and professional too.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMthis was the most fantasticthis was the most fantastic Eostre brunch i have ever had! they went all out...it had to have been 3x what brunch normally is here. more expensive, but well worth every penny.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster BrunchWe went for Easter Brunch. At $25 per adult and $12 per child, my young son and I didn't get out for under $50 with tax and tip. The food was great as always, and selection was better than that of their regular brunch. But it was pricey for two light eaters like us. Some items weren't restocked, and the carving station was unmanned much of the time. Also, the servers should let people know where all the food is located as it was scattered around the place including in the bar, which we missed until much later. All in all, it was a nice Easter brunch but I think we'll keep it to a regular Sunday outing (for which they charge less) instead of holiday.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting but good foodInteresting but good food choices. Great for sharing with small groups. Most items had 3-6 peices, but the pasta dishes were huge.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMust-Try!Every time I have eaten here, I leave more impressed (and stuffed!). The food is delicious, and service is quick and courteous. There are plenty of options for meat-eaters and vegetarians, even the pickiest of eaters. I also love the small-plates style; that means I get to try even more delicious food! BARcelona Tapas is a must-try!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDelish!Smaller delicious plates were just what we needed when we were dining at Barcelona last night. Food was great; garlic shrimp, broccolini, sautéed mushrooms, pan seared tuna with Rioja, chicken and chorizo sausage paella and my personal favorite baked Mac and Cheese! The Mac and Cheese is a bigger portion and perfect to share. I was with a group and we all had margaritas which was the drink special, but we will definitely come back for their pitchers of Sangria special on Wednesday. I love this fun place and our server was super nice...which is always a bonus!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our 4 kids to tryWe took our 4 kids to try tapas as we are headed to the real Barcelona, Spain, later this spring. The waitress was very helpful with kid-friendly classic dish recommendations. Now our kids have boosted confidence that they will enjoy Spain even more by knowing foods they already like! Food was very good. We enjoyed the whole experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA great leasurely meal.We have been here several times and this time we tried a large assortment of dishes. The kitchen was very willing to adjust a couple of the items to fit our dietary restrictions. Some of our favorite dishes were the garlic bread, artichoke hearts, cod and potato cakes, chicken skewers. The only dish I was slightly disappointed in was the vegetarian paella. It had a slightly sour taste that I didn't care for. On past visits we have enjoyed the baked goats cheese in tomato sauce and the empanadas. I had a lovely glass of wine with my meal and for the amount of wine they served it was a great value.
This is a wonderful place with such an extensive menu there is something for everyone!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMStopped by after symphonyStopped by after symphony on a cold night; busy and energetic but great service, good food in reasonable portion sizes and reasonable price. We will be back again and again.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPatronized many times. WePatronized many times. We find it great either before or after events where we don't necessarily want a large meal. The food is really quite good.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food!Just great place for great food and service. We were at the Pumper show and we will be back again next year!2/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBarcelona Tapas ReviewThe food couldn't have been any better. With each tapa came a different taste, and as more and more came out, it was unbelievable to know that every single thing out of that kitchen was going satisfy. Great for groups and family occations, spacious, and I can wait to come back when it gets a little warmer outside, so my friends/family/etc. can enjoy all of our tapas in the warm weather.2/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and food! :)Great service and food! :) They also have very good martinis2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a pleasant surprise!We went on a Saturday for a lunch as part of the Devour Downtown promotion. Ranging in age from 21 to 84 and being a party of 4, with no experience of tapas previously we basically ordered all the items on the offered 6 course promotional menus. My mother was concerned about how much food was "small bites" but still adventurous. We were so pleasantly surprised. From the black bean soup to the curry chicken salad, the flavors popped in our mouths. We never cared for chick peas before but the chick peas with the spinach and cheese were to die for - the chick peas were not "grainy" at all. All 4 of us were full and could not finish the chocolate cake and churros. The service was flawless and very accommodating to our questions.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
