Excellent place for tapas. The food is 5 out of 5 and view is off the charts! Make sure you book your reservation to avoid disappointment. I go every time I visit PV.

Although the menu has changed slightly, the best dishes are still there. Dates and bacon, potato salad, garlic shrimp with a pitcher of Sangria make this meal perfect with a combination of flavors and textures. We have gone to Puerto Vallarta many times and have never had a bad meal at Barcelona. The restaurant has also added a fish menu... More

Yes, it was New Year's Eve, BUT. $500 for dinner for two people? I have no trouble paying for a great meal but we felt a little taken advantage of. The pre set menu for New Year's Eve was not extravagant by any means. The appetizer was some salmon on a cracker, mediocre soup, horrible salad that we saw 90%... More

Thanks for coming to the restaurant. I am very sorry that the folks seated prevously in the restaurant stayed longer than normal and we were unable to seat you at your reservation time. We tried to do our best and we did offer you free drinks. You were very rude to me and no body deserves to be treated like... More

We went for Sunday brunch. The view at Barcelonas Tapas is all over the city with wide and long "open aired" window openings. They have only started serving Sunday brunch (order off the menu) for over a year now. The view is very pretty with Hildago church in the background. We listened to the bells ring on the hour and...

Visited Barcelona Tapas for Christmas Eve dinner. This was our 7th time eating here in our 6 years coming to PV. We will be back again next week with a group of 22. Last night they had a set menu which we were not expecting. However, our waiter, Alberto, did give us another option of the chef's choice of tapas... More

Barcelona Tapas was a great experience. I went there with 13 people for dinner. They were very accommodating for a large group. We basically ordered everything on the menu. No complaints about anything. The service was good, the food was great, the drinks were great and of course the view is amazing. Definitely check this place out if you're in... More
