Spanish tapas with a southern drawl. We are open 7 days a week, and serve brunch every Sunday from 11:00 - 3:00! We source our ingredients as close to home and we are vegetarian, gluten-free, and vegan friendly. We offer live music with The Kings of Jazz every Thursday from 7 until 10. We have two seatings for the show - one at 6:00 and another at 8:00. We kindly request the 6:00 seatings return their tables no later than 7:45 in order to accommodate the following seating.

We had six people right at 4, I was worried they would be overwhelmed but they were all on top of our every need. Kudos to the fabulous staff. Y’ALL ROCK!

I made a grou reservation for 10 people for a bachelorette party and the service was terrible. The restaurant was no where near full so I would not have excepted the service to be as slow as it was. Our waiter was not attentive and forgot to bring drinks multiple times. A friend had called the restaurant prior to send a bottle of a wine as a gift and our waiter never took note of the name to tell us who it came from.

As always Barsa does not disappoint. Consistently some of the best, non-pretentious Tapas in Charleston. This place is always fun, always great food, always consistently wonderful.

They have a new chef. Beware don’t eat the pickles, so salty they can make you cry. Service was great and the cocktails were fine. From there it went down hill. Plus please Dim the lights. They were like searchlights!

We had a great night, because we went on date night on a weekday we were able to take advantage of the Happy Hour prices for our drinks and the paella! We also got a cheese board and two other tapas. It was all fantastic and we were very full by the end, but not too full for desert!

I was there celebrating birthday, which I put in the reservation and told person who sat us, and nothing was done by server nor did the server really seem to care that we were there. Cute restaurant, average tapas but no real personality from staff.

We have been eating here for years and always loved the food but this time we were very disappointed in all the food. We had to turn away the octopus as it was not cooked enough. It used to be our favorite dish. We found out they lost their top chef and all the food showed it. Unfortunately we will not be back. Time to try some new places in town.

Barsa is always wonderful ... great food, fun and interesting, with a lively ambiance (not too lively) and great happy hour prices. Barsa is one of our go to places, so I know I'll be inviting many more people to try it with this review! We live on the peninsula, so its a great walk (we reward ourselves with an array of marvelous small plates).

Barsa had excellent tapas. The portions were great for the price and the wine selection was immense. The decor is lacking greatly and the service was very slow to begin with, even when the place was near empty. I will be back though for the food was tasty.

They do not take into account your request for a specific table, even if you show up and the table you want is available. Super annoying. The food usually makes up for having to sit next to the bathroom in an empty restaurant.
