“Great tapas at great price in gorgeous restaurant”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We stopped over in Coburg on our way from Bavaria to Hamburg. We stayed in the centre of the city that had a weird Mexican restaurant so we strolled around for a restaurant.

We went out to eat about 8:30. We found Bar Celona. It was very busy and we had our baby in her pram sleeping. They let us sit in the quietest corner and we ordered from the tapas happy hour menu. The food was excellent!!

The owner greeted us and made sure we had a waiter who conversed in English with us. They had a lovely wine selection as well.

The meal was also excellent value as it was 9 euros for three tapas dishes. There were so many to choose from but we were full off of three each.

The restaurant had tons of people and it looked like one of the best spots to be on a Wednesday night.

“Good food, lousiest service in quite a while!”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

We arrived as a big thunderstorm was threatening but thought we'd sit outside in case it held off for a while. We sat there for ages and then finally a waitress came. The first thing she said very bluntly was "If it rains, there`s no room inside". Okay, fine. (In the end, a really big storm arrived and they did find us a table inside).

Drinks? When we asked for a wine, the waiter, friendly but rushed off his feet, said that he'd bring something. We really had to push to see a wine list.

After being there for ages, we still hadn't been given a menu, so my partner went and got one himself. Finally, we got to order (I have a feeling they were understaffed for a busy Saturday night), going for the Angus beef. What did we get? A steak, nicely presented but chewy, but not Angus.

Coffee: we spotted our coffees sitting on the bench getting cold, so again my partner went and picked them up.

So all in all, a good place, but in dire need of more staff and more professional staff.

“Good food but terrible service”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

I have been here lots of times, generally because someone else wanted to go there with me. The food is lovely, a mixture of tapas and other dishes. The atmosphere is good, especially the beer garden on summer evenings ( during the day the traffic on the main road is too noisy). Unfortunately the service is very erratic - every single time I was there at least one of the people in the group either didn't get what they ordered or didn't get anything at all in spite of repeated reminders for the service staff - interestingly they do remember everything on the bill. Pity really, but that is why I personally rarely choose to go there.
