The owner is a sweetheart but the brunch menu on Open Table is not valid.

My boyfriend and I love tapas so we decided to try it here. This place has been around for a long time but it seems to be a little off the path and therefore doesn’t get the kind of traffic they deserve. We were greeted at the door by an older gentleman that didn’t speak much English but thankfully my boyfriend is fluent in Spanish. I didn’t feel left out because the waiter made a genuine effort to include me too. He explained the menu thoroughly and brought out glasses of wine. We wrote our order down on the paper placed on the table. We ordered the Ibiza Combo and traded out the chorizo with baby calamari. The waiter took our order and then said “Ok. I go to cook now”. Since we were one of the first in the restaurant for the evening, 8pm dinner reservations, I thought it was great that he still wanted to greet his patrons and be personable. Everything was done great and we even ordered an extra of the lobster cannelloni because it was that amazing. Don’t pass this place by. Prices are good for the quality and quantity of food you get.

Me and my boyfriend had a pretty good time eating tapas on Valentines Day. The variety of food was good and quality was decent. However, I’m not sure it was worth 150 dollars that we paid for the meal.

Excellent experience overall, with great food & service.
A great place to experience Spanish cuisine, & if you want to experience Tapas, this is the place you want to go in Toronto & the western part of the GTA.

Casa Barcelona has become one of our favourite dining experiences in the Toronto area, & we always enjoy coming back & introducing family & friends to this dining gem in the Bloor West & Royal York area of Etobicoke.

The food was excellent! As vegetarians, we had a very good variety of options to choose from. Every dish was delicious - from the pastas to the stuffed vegetables (and the yummy home made bread with whipped home made butter). We will definitely return.

This place is fantastic. Went there again recently for a celebratory date night. The food is authentic and you can taste the passion in every dish made with fresh and quality ingredients. Staff are super friendly and knowledgeable. Owner approaches tables and makes sure customers are satisfied and everything is up to par. Live dancers as well on certain weekends make it a fun night out!

Great food and great service. To be honest when the first plate came out , I though I was going to have to stop at McDonald's on the way home cuz it was a small plate. However, I was pleasently surprised when the plates kept coming all of which were amazing in taste . I have driven by this place many times always wondering how the food was , now I know and I have to say I can't wait to go again .

We didn't like most of our Tapas. The presentation was the same for many of our mains. The chorizo which should be good, tasted like hotdogs. Maybe it was just our experience but the only thing we liked was the Sangria and the service.

Enjoyable experience. Didn't realize at first that you have to write down your food order. Combos are a good way to sample a bit of everything. Garlic shrimp and lamb were very tasty.

I have had tapas before. this was nothing like what I had before. I expected everything fresh, flavourful. I found everything I ate boring. and the prices were exorbitant! $36 for two small pieces of beef which were not tender, and drenched in sauce, so you cannot enjoy the flavour. it came with some strange potato salad and french fries. oh, one thing was good. I had chocolate mousse for dessert. it was lovely.

What happened to Casa Barcelona? Service is not what it used to be, very in experienced service help for a restaurant of that caliber. We were served then rushed out to pay our bill. We were two of eight people in the entire restaurant. Very, very disappointing compared to my first experience. I will not be going back.

Have been to Casa Barcelona on numerous occasions and have always been extremely happy. The owner takes time to come out and meet his customers. The food is excellent. We've only gone in Saturday's and they have a live show as well. They have 2 dancers who come out and entertain.

There are so many dishes to choose from, good to ask for advice which we did and were steered to the best and freshes dishes. We wanted true tapas and all we tried were excellent.
Difficult not to order too much but we finished everything just because of the beautiful variety of flavours which were so tempting.

The owner is genuine and enthusiastic about the way he runs the place but the food is quite expensive and the paellas aren't all that great. The tapas menu consisted of 7 items with the chorizo sausage tasting the best followed by the grilled chicken and saffron sauce. Everything else tasted mediocre. The beef was rubbery and the grilled garlic shrimp was bland and tasteless.
I was happy with quantity they served and would have written a more favourable review if the food were priced more reasonably OR tasted better than what was served to us.
