2 for 1 at Barcelona Tapas Bar Y Restaurante

This Barcelona Tapas is the latest addition to the fantastic Barcelona Tapas Group and is situated in Lime Street just a stones throw from Leadenhall Market and the world famous Lloyds of London building.

The restaurant consists of a ground level, which is a combination of bar area and traditional table and chair seating.

The interior design comprises of brightly coloured walls and a significant amount of specially commissioned mosaic tile work from the designer Donna Reeves, and a collection of paintings from the renowned painter, Manuel Quintanilla. The tile work, as always, includes Barcelona Tapas trademark three dimensional lizard.

The authentic tapas is the raison dêtre of the place, from a cold plate of jamon serrano to gambas al ajillo (prawns in garlic & chilli with white wine), piquant padron peppers fried with olive oil & served with sea salt, or a full-on paella. The wine list draws similarly on the chain's Spanish roots.

Important Information

Please Note: As the menu consists entirely of Tapas (no course distinction) the 2 4 1 offer means for every 2 tapas dishes ordered the cheapest will be free. The tastecard discount is not available on Saturdays and Sundays due to the venue being closed. Set menus are not included in the offer.

    Went with a friend on an early Thursday evening. It was fairly quiet and we had the restaurant to ourselves until later in the evening. I can't comment on the meat dishes but there was a fairly good selection of vegetation dishes, and cooked well. "

    The first time I came here was in summer 2013 and I loved it so much I wanted to come back as soon as possible. I think management must've changed or they recently changed the staff because this visit i was greeted in a disgusting manner. The waiter didn't bother even saying hello and just pointed at a table for me and my partner to go to. Once we sat down and he noticed we spoke spanish, he began telling us in spanish how the kitchen was due to close at 3.30 ( our reservation was made for 3.30 and we were not told this before arriving). He rushed us to order and once we decided we'd like Fidegua he rudely replied how that wouldn't be possible because of the time it takes to cook and the kitchen etc. Instead of apologising and offering us drinks or aperitifs while we wait for the kitchen to reopen (only an hour away, and we both would've waited) he just raised his voice and kept reiterating how we basically wont be able to eat anything and how long Paellas take to cook, completely ignoring the fact that perhaps this wasn't the first time we have ever eaten one. He was extremely rude, his raised voice got the whole restaurants attention, I felt so embarrassed; especially as I wanted to treat my girlfriend to her favourite dish for her birthday. we felt so unwelcome my girlfriend and I just asked to leave, we felt like we were doing them a favour by doing so. If I was the manager of that place and I saw my staff talking like that i would fire them on the spot. How disgusting and embarrassing, I wont be returning. "

    " This was a randon choice from restaurants in the area and pretty pleased overall. Food was tasty. Was given free small sample of 'reserve' version of wine we ordered just to see the difference - and yes - worth ordering the better quality wine as it was delicious!
    From the range of dishes we selected nothing disappointed although the patatas bravas were just on the edge of being slightly too spiced up for me.
    It was a Monday and probably quieter than usual therefore not sure what service would be like on a Friday evening but hopefully there would be more staff working.
    I liked this place and would definitely go back. Far better than La Tasca - sorry! "

  • Robert said: "Good for catching up
    We needed somewhere convenient to meet up and this fitted the bill. We were a little nervous given the latest reviews were so mixed.

    Food: The Paella was great, the chorizo al vino was a little over cooked for my liking but I still ate it, and the rest was standard tapas

    Customer Service: Excellent, they looked after us well.
    Ease of tastecard use: Very easy
    Atmosphere: Not really one. It was very quiet other than the TV on in the corner, which got turned up for them to watch the football (we left!) but not a buzzing feeling.

    Would I go back? I wouldn’t go out of my way to however if I were meeting up around there then yes. "

    The service at this restaurant was terrible. Despite phoning twice about booking there was no record when we arrived. We were sat at a table and then left for ages until we went and found someone to serve us. Some beer was out of stock. One starter we asked for was out of stock. Service was just awful. Would not go back again.

    Can't use tastecard on set menus.

    Also lots of people just in for a drink after work, quite rowdy atmosphere. "
