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

Tapas are an excellent way
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.

Great place to come back to
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.

My husband took me this gem
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!

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.

Choice for Anniversary
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.

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.

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!
