    We have been here many times including our rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal dinner was great and food was good. Only thing that really bothered me was how the server suggested WAY TOO MUCH food. We had way too much food left over four other group of 40. The service was great. Just keep in mind to order less paella. One of the small paella easily feeds 4 people. The little tapas are delicious. Service is great overall. View and ambiance are great. One other thing… the paella is way too expensive at $70 US dollars to be honest. We live in San Diego and are used to very expensive dishes but I don’t think it’s worth the $70. I also wouldn’t order it unless you have at least 4 people to eat it or are prepared to eat leftovers. In my opinion they should really lower the price to $50. I would come back but just wouldn’t order the paella again. It was a good dish but the fish was dry. Also a little salty. The squid and other fish and veggies inside were good. Stick to the little tapas and you will be very happy, they are the best!

    We were a big group and our waiter did an awesome keeping track of everything. The rooftop was great with live music. Ambiance was just what we wanted. Drinks and food were delicious. We were able to order lot of small tapas and try many items. Nothing ordered disappointed. Paella (seafood and veggie) were tasty though missed the crusty rice. Spanish omelet, pulpo and gambas were outstanding. Flan and the chocolate molten cake were a hit.

    Excellent food and service, amazing views—enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The live music was not really appropriate for a Spanish tapas restaurant… the music videos played before the keyboard player started were much better. The ultimate would be Flamenco guitarists and dancers?

    What an awful meal. From the mediocre chef’s offering — more of a warning of what was to come — potato salad (?) to the bland beef, mushrooms and spinach — everything tasted the same. Too much butter and sauce. The staff was annoyingly too attentive and the music was too loud musak from YouTube. Kenny G would have been an improvement. If you can’t even get the music right there is a problem. This place is overpriced and underwhelming. Never again.

    Second visit to this resto — didn‘t disappoint in March and again, more recently, in May. With its being shoulder season, the restaurant wasn‘t jammed packed as it was in March. We were on the 5th floor in May and 4th floor in March. Great views of the setting sun on both floors. Food was excellent; service was excellent. Shout-out to our main server, Oscar, and his crew. Well done, and see you all next year!

    Barcelona has been nicely renovated since we were last there a few years ago. Great views of the sunset and the bay. We had the mushroom with chorizo as an appetizer then went with the paella. Both delish. Also had the red sangria... very good. Every time we come to Barcelona the food and service is consistently great!

    What a wonderful evening at Barcelona Tapas! The ambience is so nice, lovely views of the bay. We started with a nice serving of special potato salad and bread served on the house. My Extracto Pepino (Gin & Tonic) was perfect - presentation and taste were excellent. Both of our salad starters were delicious, who thought a roasted beet salad with goat cheese could be so yummy??? The fish of the day, red snapper, was cooked perfectly - served on a fresh bed of sauteed spinach and lovely presentation. The Pinchos de Angus were tasty and tender served with perfect vegetable mix. Barely had room for dessert.....Flan de naranja was perfectly prepared and the platano caramelo topped with pine nuts was to die for!!! A digestivo of the house was complimentary and a nice end to a wonderful dinner and evening. Oscar & Federico provided us excellent service and know how to make you feel welcome.

    We had a great dinner here for our last night in PV. The location was easily walkable from our hotel and not far from the Malecon. The service was attentive but not overly bothersome and the food was coursed out at a comfortable pace. We thought they could have done with a few less tables as the ambiance got quite loud and less relaxing than we had hoped for. Overall a good experience and we'd definitely go back again!
