“Much improved”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

t's been several years since we've returned to Barcelona. The last time we were here, the food was quite disappointing, especially the paella. However, we've been hearing good things about it for a while & decided to give it another chance.

Besides a slight mixup on the reservation, everything went very smoothly. The service was professional and helpful. There were four of us and we started out with an assortment of five cheeses, and three different dried meats (chorizos). The cheeses were excellent, as were two of the three meats. For the dinner we had an assortment of tapas. Everything was very good, but the shrimps in wine sauce and the avocado with goat cheese especially stood out. The mussels were also very good. My wife ordered a glass of red (excellent) while I got the Caipirinha (was just okay). For dessert we shared the chocolate brownie a la mode, which was every good as well.

Overall a much better experience and we are likely to try it again soon.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Ate here during 614 Columbus dining week. Food was really good. Service was good too but SLOW. Value for price paid not so good. $14 for a cocktail? Portions were small. Will need to go back on a less busy night.

“Incredible Meal”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This was a truly great meal. First off the wait staff were on the spot and watching our every move and anticipating our needs. The Tapas were wonderful everything from marcona almonds in sea salt with light oil, to meats, cheese and the like. Had the pork shank, meat fell off the bone and the portions were generous. Can't wait to go back!

“Tasty Hints of Spain in German Village”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Barcelona is located in a lovely area. Lovely, warm decor inside and terrific outdoor patio. I loved the atmosphere. The food was well prepared and freshly made. We had sangria which was good.
I like local places and would recommend Barcelona. So nice to find this unique place.

“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

We have visited Barcelona every year for the past 3-4 years while visiting for a trade show in Columbus and it is by far our favourite restaurant mainly due to the lush tropical outdoor patio, extremely knowledgable staff and excellent food and wine. There is no comparison in Columbus.
