Relaxing, friendly atmosphere. was here with family.great service. Absolutely recommend reservation, otherwise difficult to get table, crowded. extensive choice of vine. Tapas were great; scallops, pulpo, Champignons al Ajillo (foraged mushrooms with garlic) (I love mushrooms!) etc. Great service.

Barcelona has amazing tapas and an awesome vibe! Typically a long wait but its worth it. The bar area is really cool and pretty big. In the summer there is nice outdoor seating as well as an outdoor waiting area where you can have drinks until your table is ready. Definitely recommend if you are in the area!

I have been here twice and both times was satisfied. Last weekend I arrived on a Saturday night after making a reservation. The rez was not on their list but, no problem, they managed to seat my party immediately. The waiter had great wine recommendations and really knew his stuff. Everything was delicious - honestly I had no idea that... More

Great find in Brookline for authentic tapas. This place seems to be always busy so it is best to get a reservation or go on an off hour. There are plenty of tapas options and the red wine sangria is great. You can order it by the pitcher. The atmosphere is nice and the restaurant looks modern. It can get... More

The food was out of this world. We had a bunch of appetizers delivered and everything was excellent. That would have been enough for the meal but they brought out more, vegetable paella, seafood paella and a meat platter. Everything was great. Good selection of drinks. I think the service could have been better, a little slow on the drink... More

When I come to Brookline to visit my family, I always request to dine here. While the seafood paella is my favorite, I've never been disappointed with anything on their menu. I'm even obsessed with the bread, since they serve Iggy's. And do yourself a favor, indulge in the white margarita with the lavender syrup, it's amazing!!!!

Enjoyed (another) delicious meal of wide variety of tapas. Bartender was fantastic assisting us with taps ideas and accompanying wine. Hip vibe. Just wish I could hear the tunes.

Terrific place for an informal dining experience. Lots of great small dishes and unusual brews at a reasonable price. Great place to come with friends for a fun evening. The tapas selections are varied and tasty from octopus to Spanish hams and cheeses. The atmosphere is always up beat but can be noisy (it's a pretty large place). The place... More

Description
Barcelona meets Brookline, and a sophisticated Boston neighborhood has a wine bar to call its own. A historic town located minutes from downtown Boston, Brookline is the perfect mixture of urban and country living. From large estates and recreational parks to boutiques and pedestrian-filled streets, Brookline offers a city atmosphere in a suburban setting. Located in Washington Square at 1700 Beacon Street, Barcelona is the newest addition to this lively neighborhood dining destination. A mix of antique wire glass, steel and reclaimed wood gives our newly built space a vintage appeal. The rustic, polished environment is the next best thing to eating tapas and drinking wine in our restaurant's namesake city. With hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious patio, the space has a European charm which fills the menu as well.
