A word from BARcelona Tapas - Indianapolis
BARcelona Tapas prides itself on creating a traditional authentic Tapas Bar atmosphere. This includes a warm decor and the traditional hanging of Serrano hams and dried bacalaos. The service reflects a traditional tapas experience as you might find in Madrid, Barcelona or Sevilla. Small plates of food are prepared to order and delivered one or two at a time, as to encourage sharing of the plates and conversation together with great Sangria.

Barcelona Tapas Indianapolis is an open air restaurant when the weather is nice! Come and enjoy one of our two large patios or sit at the bar and enjoy a breeze through the restaurant on warm summer days.

Diner Reviews
  • "We had been looking forward to experiencing this restaurant. Made a pre- concert reservation and found the restaurant to be fairly grungy - sticky, grimy menus, noisy and not what expected. The tapas were extremely disappointing! We ordered crispy artichokes that were deep fried morsels accompanied by what tasted like plain mayo. The ahi tuna on greens portion was extremely tiny for $11.95. Worst was the beef tenderloin that was grisly and tough. Both my husband and I had to spit out pieces that were inedible. Check that one off the list."

  • "Sunday brunch buffet and menu items are the best. Chef Matt and staff were excellent. I would recommend Barcelona to anyone."

  • "This was my first visit to a "small plate" restaurant. Each dish was different from the others making it a taste bud adventure."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Food quality is consistently good, service is friendly and quick, while not feeling rushed. We like going here with groups - it is great to share many dishes, linger over a few sangrias and have a nice relaxed but fun dinner. Prices are very reasonable, and the atmosphere is great for a fun evening with friends. The spicy tomato dip with goat cheese is my favorite dish by far!"

  • "This was a creative tapas restaurant with a wide-ranging menu of unusual ingredient mixes. I would return next time I'm in Indy."

  • "Unfortunately for BARcelona, we have had too many great experiences at Chicago area tapas restaurants. Food was just ok. They do have a decent wine list. Service (John) was very good."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The menu sounded good, the dishes lacked flavor. Best recommendations are the garlic shrimp, the tenderloin with spinach, and the goat cheese in tomato sauce - while none were 4-star worthy, they were passable. everything else we ordered lacked "tapas" spice profile and even salt and pepper? summary: a little more fun than going to the freezer for pre-made empanadas."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Stopped for a pre Pacer's game light meal and lucked into bar menu specials. $3 small plates. Really liked the goat cheese, calamari and artichoke hearts - would try something different next time just for the variety."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Paella presented as excellent however two of us who ordered it found it bland, virtually tasteless. Some other dishes, e.g., broccolini, fared better. Ambiance: lively, crowded, too noisy for our table of 8 to hear everyone in our group, but not unpleasant - people were haveing a good time."

  • "My husband and I had been to Barcelona Tapas before, but we had never taken our picky 9 year old. We were worried that he would turn his nose up at the unusual food. My husband wanted to go there for his birthday, so we decided to give it a try. We were surprised that once we got him to taste the offerings, he liked nearly all of the 7 different selections we made, and he loved the creme brule for dessert!"

  • "We stopped at this restaurant on a whim. Our intended destination had been closed for a private event. We secured an OpenTable reservation and gave it a chance. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was vibrant and cozy. The range of dishes offered was perfect. They had a good selection without being completely overwhelming. I would return and recommend it to anyone who enjoys Tapas or is looking to try it for the first time."

  • "This really does give you a feel for a spanish tapas bar. Although the tapas are larger than you would expect in Spain, the flavors are excellent. Huge mixed olive bowl. Great spanish tortilla, empanadas, and interesting fried avocado. My wife and I really liked to option for a carafe of wine rather than simply by the glass or whole bottle. A really fun introduction to Indianapolis. Easy walk from downtown hotels."

  • "OK for students and people who have never traveled. This is BAR food with a twist, nothing more."

  • "Although packed at 815pm, server Christine and her team worked hard to keep the food coming, water glasses filled and empty plates off the table. It was impressive"

  • "We decided to try Barcelona because we were dining with friends and wanted the opportunity to share many dishes. We lived the food and were pleasantly surprised at the final bill. Four people stuffed with wonderful food and the bill was under $75 total. A great place to visit with friends or get reacquainted with your spouse!"

  • "Really enjoyed our first experience at BARcelona Tapas. We ate here during Devour Downtown and the place was packed. Our server was fun and energetic. Food was served very timely. There were 4 of us in our party which allowed for us to try the majority of the available dishes for each course of the meal. We enjoyed everything we tried...lots of flavor! Although we are not vegetarians, we did try one vegetarian dish and were surprised to find it was actually our favorite of the night! We will definitely be back!"

  • "I loved the feel of this place. If you are looking for a nice Spanish cuisine this is the place for you! If you are in to artichokes the Alcachofas fritas are delicious, the Queso De Carba Al Horno (baked goat cheese in tomato sauce) is a special treat!! This place is a must try, the service was excellent, the food was delivered fast! Great environment for a group or party. I will definitely go back."

  • "I'm not a fan of buffets, but this is an easy choice for lunch. They have a lot of salad choices, so you don't have to eat all the caloric options. You can also order from the menu, but since my business guest chose the buffet, I played along. Overall, good food. Our waitress was excellent---kept on top of things without hovering."

  • "The Valentine menu was a pleasant surprise and a good value. The restaurant accommodated our request for an out-of-the-traffic table (for a service dog) which I very much appreciated. Food was excellent!"

  • "The idea of sharing your dinner with someone, literally, made BARcelona Tapas a great Valentine's Day dinner destination. For someone who's never had tapas before, the options were plentiful and nearly overwhelming, so we opted for the special, which was geared for a couple. The atmosphere was wonderful. The restaurant came alive around 630. The sound of other diners was joyous. The service was very fast, with each course coming quickly, yet giving you enough time to enjoy them. The hostess and wait staff were all quite pleasant, and willing to explain anything you might have a question about. All in all, our experience was fantastic, we will definitely be returning once the snow has cleared and we can dine outside!"

  • "We tried this as a Devour Downtown choice and were very happy with the food and the price. Our waiter was great, very helpful, knowledgable and fun to talk to. We enjoyed choosing and eating the 6 courses to share. We thought we might still be hungry but the portions were a" generous small" and we ended up being pretty stuffed. Of course we liked some of our choices better thanothers but enjoyed them all. Our favorite was actually the marinara and goat cheese skillet served with bread. Nice selection of beer. Over all, lots of fun."

  • "We got in earlier than anticipated and the food was excellent. I took my girlfriend do dinner on Valentines Day here which was the first time either of us had been there and we were both impressed with the food, good vegetarian options."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We shared the Valentine's menu, for $35 we got six plates of fantastic flavors. And we were quite full after just 3. The goat cheese & sirloin plates were amazing. For dessert we had strawberry cheros but were told by regulars seated right next to us that the tres leche cake is their best sweet finish. The atmosphere is not quiet, romantic, since you're seated very close to other tables. But we'll be back. The $35 menu is currently available every Tuesday as well."

  • "We were in Indy for the PACERS game and headed over to BARcelona after the event. It just happened to be Indy's version of "restaurant week" so we were able to try several dishes for a set price. All were very good...we particularilhy liked the mushroom and the flan!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Gazpacho is pleasant with seasoning for the masses (very few spices); paella very nice -- go for seafood, not sausage based option; very nice flan. Excellent service and definitely customer friendly. To survive in a highly competitive market, the seasoning is quite mild, but tasty."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was so wonderful! It is pricey, depending on how much you order. I ordered a drink, not realizing my cocktail would be $10, bringing my bill up to almost $40 just for me. They had a great, affordable valentine's couple special ($35), but my husband was too picky for us to share lol. Great selection of great food. Something different. Very fast, friendly service, great atmosphere. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "Me and my boyfriend and two other couples went to Barcelona Tapas for the first time during Devour Downtown. The service was good and our server was really friendly. I was semi-disappointed with the food though. We had about six courses so I was stuffed by the end. The prices were great, but in my opinion some of the dishes on the Devour menu were quite odd and not too tasty. For example, we received a course that was literally just mushrooms in a skillet..not the most exciting. I was looking forward to the paella course the most, however, that fell flat for me too. However, the Sangria was pretty good and our flan was delicious, by far the best course of the night! I would recommend this place for a group looking for something lower cost."

  • "Went to BARcelona during Devour Downtown at the advice of some friends. Great cocktails, and a good variety of food. It is fun to go with a group so that you get to sample more things. Service was great, small plates were timed well. Restaurant is noisy, but that is part of the fun. DEFINITELY try the shrimp in garlic aioli....outstanding!"

  • "My friend and I took advantage of Devour Indy and stopped in at BARcelona Taps. I had never been before and was greeted with a warm atmosphere. My friend and I wanted to drink some wine and the waitress suggested sharing a picture of the house-made Sangria. We tried the white and it was delicious. There was so much food to be had, we ended up taking boxes home. The house bread is delicious. I loved the tomato sauce with goat cheese and herbs. I will definitely be returning!"
