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.

  • "The service was terrible. Appears they were under staffed. I have dined here many times and have always had a good experience. I will chalk this time up as a fluke. But it was bad bad bad."

  • "One of our favorite dining experiences of GenCon 2014. Our party liked the paella, meatballs, mac and cheese, chorizo, and tenderloin with blue cheese and spinach best."

  • "Post Indy MotoGP was looking for something good. Opentable reviewers recommended as fit for foodies. I enjoyed the food. I probably would not rate as fit for foodies. Tapas menu is typical. Their gazpacho was "rustic" style with a good amount of spice to make it interesting. Fried Tres Leches dessert was different and the serving huge. I could not finish but enjoyed the texture. The frying dried the cake out a bit."

  • "Our party of fourwas seated promptly, and received great servce. We ordered a number of Tapas, and the flow of food was good, not too fast, not too slow. The flavors were full and well balanced. Portions were perfect for sharing. This was my second visit here, but will not be my last!"

  • "This is a noisy fun place, but not so loud that you have to yell or anything. We were seared in a room with two bachelorette parties everyone seem to be having a great time. I love the tapas concept! It is so fun to have small plates of so many different delicious things! Surf and turf, empanadas, mussles, ham and cheese, calamari! All delicious. The bartender was excellent- Bloody Mary perfection to start, mohito-for dessert!"

  • "It's definitely a good place to eat but some things were unexpected. The amount of time for food to arrive was longer than expected. My husband was getting the dinner portion of toros "skewers" and was warned it would take about 30-35mins for his dinner to arrive. So we changed it to the smaller version because we were hungry. It STILL took over 30 mins to arrive, without the warning. The bread pudding is LITERALLY slices of bread cut into triangles, dipped in their pudding mixture, and covered with caramel and powered sugar. It was disappointing. However, the other food items were yummy."

  • "The food and the service were outstanding, the plates are small so you can try different types of tapas, but believe me, after the third one you will be food.. The drinks are also really good and you can't leave the place without trying the sangria"

  • "My spouse and I went here for a romantic dinner and, while not disappointed, we left a bit underwhelmed. The red sangria was great on the hot summer night we dined here, but the food was a bit heavy. They seem to rely a lot on frying foods in thick batters and adding cheeses and mayo-based, super heavy sauces that left us feeling too full and groggy after a couple of courses. We would have liked to have a couple of more courses, but just could not do it because of the first couple heavy courses."

  • "My wife and I have been to Spain many times and the Tapas at BARcelona could match any we have had in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba, Granada, and many other cities we have visited. We were surprised to learn that the chef was not a Spanish native and that the entire kitchen staff is American, but trained by a Spanish Chef. Well they learned well! The service was also excellent! We will definitely return on our next trip to Indianapolis."

  • "This was our first time to Barcelona. It was a birthday celebration for a party of six. First of all, the items on the menu were varied in type and taste. Every tapas dish was delicious and appeared to have been prepared individually. Nothing sitting under a heat light. Also, the wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Overall a great experience! We'll go again."

  • "The price for the brunch was jacked up to $27.95 instead of the normal $16.95 (It was Mother's Day so I guess they wanted to stick it to the kids?) and that was the only option so it was way overpriced! The server was about as unfriendly as they get. Food was tasty as usual, however, I was very disappointed in the overall experience. We weren't actually even there celebrating Mother's Day, but rather my daughter's graduation from college."

  • "Took a friend out for a late birthday dinner on a Friday evening. It was a little too chilly to sit outside but that area seems enticing. Nice ambiance, very well decorated. Felt the Spanish decorum was authentic. Our food was great. Loved the goat cheese tapas. Pork and Beef dishes were SLIGHTLY overcooked past our medium request. Very loud but it was that "happy hour" time so it was expected. Server may have gotten busy as it took awhile for our sausage plate to arrive. Either way a great experience to try new and exciting foods! "

  • "My friend and I went to Barcelona Tapas after a play downtown. We sat inside, but with the doors open, it was lovely. The food was fantastic. We were huge fans of the fried artichokes and the meatballs. Plus, they have the best tres leches cake I've ever had. It is simply sinful! "

  • "While in town for a convention this weekend, found this place on open table, saw good reviews, and decided I would take my folks to their first tapas restaurant. We tried 7-8 small plates between the 3 of us, off the top of my head I remember the mussels, the meatballs, the sausage platter, the calamari, the asparagus, and the beef (brisket?) on a skewer. Service was excellent, our waitress was very attentive and explained everything to my folks. Would definitely eat here again!"

  • "I was so excited to find BARcelona Tapas after living in Spain for 4 months! From what I tried, the tapas are great and love the drink menu, but I have to say that the paella was a bit disappointing. It was good, but nothing like real paella. I will definitely be back for more tapas and sangria though! Love the atmosphere!! "

His service was friendly and efficient! I always recommend this hot spot to friends and family and will continue to do so!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"
