Great ambiance once the Flamingo
and Belly Dancer get going! Food and wine are very good, but not cheap. Portions are reasonable. Paella is ewxcellent"

The food was incredible. A
fabulous array of tastes. Will definitely return. Service was a little slow and somewhat unorganized but it was Valentines and very busy. The quality of the food more than made up for it."

Service was slow and food was not
authentic. Small place; means sitting too close to other diners."

My wife and me went to Casa
Barcelona last night for Valentines dinner. Wow what a dissapointment! The food was ok but i reccommend the chef cutdown on the salt. The salt in all my tapas dishes were so salty I could not appreciate the food. Mind you the actual food was cooked perfectly but way too heavy handed with the salt. The service was atrocious! It took 2 hours for all our food to be served. The waitress totally ignored us the whole night. The noise level was absolutely horrible! They had a violin player who mind you was very talented but the volume of was so loud I couldnt even have a conversation with my wife. I suggest people go to the restaurant down the street called " La Veranda Osteria". Food and service are much better."

This is probably 5th time we are
visiting this restaurant. We travel a lot and this restaurant has the tapas that we like and tried in Spain. Their food is excellent. I am not crazy about a service as I feel rushed, and they are not as pleasant as you would expect. But we just order, eat and leave. Nobody says good bye, or shows any kind of appreciation. That bothers me, yet we keep coming because of the food, and it is near our house."

Good food but left hungry. Very
small portions for the price."

A lovely neighbourhood spot for
any occasion. Tapas combos offer a wide ranging variety of food -- beef, pork, chicken croquettes (to die for), seafood, fish, homemade chorizo and vegetables -- all bought to the table, piping hot and perfectly cooked, in stages by pleasant servers. The entertainment isn't all that important to us, but for those who like Spanish dancing and belly dancing, you'll get it here. The owner is very nice and comes by to have a word. We'll be going back soon for more. Ole!"

Although the entertainment was
great..belly dancer and flamenco dancer, the price of the food and what you received was quite disappointing. Expensive and not enough to go around, not to mention how hurried it all was. It is a shame because the menu was packed with many options and combos and the whole concept inviting, one the plates came, we were left wanting more. We ordered a combo and this was not enough to feed the four of us. Now I do understand that this is tapas, but these portions were very small, and very expensive, and like said before, left us wanting more."

We had a most pleasant evening at
Casa Barcelona. Our party of 4 was warmly greeted and promptly seated. The menu was a bit intimidating as it was quite long and contained many categories. We gladly agreed to have the owner select small dishes for us. These kept coming until we were quite full. They included hot and cold dishes as well as seafood, vegetables and meat. Highlights were the mixed vegetables (like French ratatouille), the beef and the churros for dessert. We shared all the dishes Spanish style. This was possible as serving size was larger than traditional tapas."

It was a good venue for a dinner
for our anniversary. The owners are friendly and provide good service. The portions are more than ample. More vegetables in the combo tapas would be nice."

THIS WAS OUR SECOND TIME DINING IN
A LIL NEIGHBOURHOOD GEM AND WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK AGAIN! WOULD LOVE TO GO WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS ON A SATURDAY EVENING AS THEY HAVE GREAT DANCERS AND ITS ENERGETIC AND FUN. FOOD AS ALWAYS WAS EXCELLENT AND SO WAS THE SERVICE WE GIVE THE PLACE A BIG THUMBS UP! KEEP UP THE QUALITY OF GREAT FOOD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IF YOU ARE IN THE MOOD FOR SOME GOOD TAPAS"

I haven't been here in awhile but
the food is still very good. The menu was too long for me to read, so I asked the owner to make us a combo of Tapas with seafood and meats. Started off with a big glass of Estrella beer. Then Spanish Red Wine. The tapas consisted of Chorizo, Shrimps, veggies, a potato dish, roasted pork, calamari, fish - which was so good, dates with pork, beef and a Paella as the last dish. We topped it off with Churros with a dulce de leche dip and chocolate dip, a creme brulee and a Spanish coffee. They still had belly dancing and a Flamenco show for entertainment later on in the evening. Both dancers were awesome, talented and pretty. All four of us totally enjoyed the evening. Great $$$ Value for 4 people."

On net, this is an excellent
restaurant with outstanding, attentive, and friendly service. The food has some standouts: The paella, the bread, and the chorizo are traditional and wonderful. My main suggestion would be to lighten the rest of the menu: there is too much cream and fat. I expect there are ways to update the recipes that would do justice to the traditional spirit of tapas, while maintaining the best of the traditional."

The owners are lovely and very
friendly, the food came out quickly and the venison stew we ordered was very nice, but that is about all I can say I really enjoyed about our night out at this restaurant. Most of the food was so oily that my stomach was off for the rest of the night. The chorizo sausage sat in a pool of oil and did not have a lot of flavour. The olives were extremely salty. The risotto was oily and the mussels in the risotto were cooked to the point of being rubbery. The shrimp dish we ordered had the same rubbery texture. The fruit in the red sangria was very bitter. I love tapas and I really wanted to love this little place in my neighborhood but the food was really disappointing."

House salad was excellent. Shrimp
and scallop tapas were great but a little bit over-priced. Grilled fish tapa was just perfect. The best thing was the churros dessert with chocolate. crepe was disappointing. the menu was extremely hard to read. The place seemed pretty authentic but the interior and menu seemed pretty old."

My husband took me this gem of a
restaurant as he know i love Tapas. Having been to Barcelona and indulging in the amazing food there, I have a tough palate to please. This restaurant did not disappoint. The food was abundant and flavourful (the best crab cakes i have ever had), the wine was phenomenal, but the server and ambiance were sensational. I look forward to returning and trying out more of their delicious cuisine!"

It is really a neighborhood gem.
It was an early evening outing with the family 2 adults and 3 kids. We had the entire place to ourselves and full attention from the owner which was great because the menu here is dizzying with food items. The food selection is great and should satisfy everybody: from vegetarians to meat lovers. One of our kids has certain foods intolerance so one of our top criteria for a good restaurant is its ability to create dishes outside of the standard menu items. The owner at Casa Barcelona certainly passed this test. Soon enough people started to trickle in and you could see from the interactions with the owner that it was not their first time which is always a reassuring sign for first time visitors."

Tapas are an excellent way to
sample various foods on the menu. The servers are helpful with recommending what to select. The ambience is great for a romantic evening out. You do want to keep track of your tapas if you order the combination platter as the server may forget one. Overall it is a nice place to go for a special occasion. Not an everyday casual dining restaurant as the prices are high. In addition the food is rich and tasty, not for the diet conscious for sure."

The food is an excellent sample of
real Spanish food, probably the best in Toronto."
