I ate here as a party of 4. We ordered some bread and oil to start then went on to order a further 8 assorted tapas dishes all of which were lovely. We also ordered a bottle of wine and beers and the bill was slightly more than average however I believe you're paying for the location of being within... More

Being situated in Princes Square, Barca is in the centre of the city. It has an impressive range of cocktails and an equally impressive variety of tapas. Quality is excellent as is the service. An first class venue to spend some time with friends in an ambient setting. Well worth a visit.

We haven't had lunch at Barca for some time and we decided that some Spanish tapas would be a change. I have to admit that the quality of the food was excellent, in particular, the mussels cooked with saffron cream was the best mussels I have tasted in years. Can't wait to return. The staff were very friendly and helpful,... More

We went for Barca's favourite as we were too tired to think!! There was an assortment in the favourites which suited us. It was lovely. The service was friendly and helpful. Worth a visit!

My girlfriend and I came back to Barca as we saw that they brought back the original Barca Favourites! Up until a year or so ago, we came fairly regularly until they changed the menu and took out our favourite dishes. Anyway... We went on the weekend before Valentine's Day to give Barca a go again. The food was amazing,... More

First visit to Barca Tapas with my husband for lunch on Sunday afternoon. We had a voucher (cost £12)which entitled us to 5 tapas from the main menu. On arrival we chose to sit inside the restaurant and were given water and menus when seated. We ordered the patatas bravas,beef stew,chicken strips in red pepper and almond sauce,mussels in saffron... More
