2 for 1 at Barcelona Tapas Bar and Restaurant - Middlesex Street

Barcelona Tapas Bar and Restaurant is located within a large prestigious office complex with the official address of 15 St Botolph Street, although the restaurant frontage and customer entrance is located at ground level on Middlesex Street.

Barcelona II consists of a ground level comprising a combination of bar area and traditional table and chair seating and a mezzanine level providing only traditional tables and chairs. Private parties of up to 120 people can be catered for.

The interior design is of high quality. Comprising brightly coloured walls and a significant amount of specially commissioned mosaic tile work from a renowned designer. The tile work includes a large three dimensional lizard suspended over the mezzanine level balcony.

Both the ground and mezzanine level include glass display cases containing traditional original matador and flamenco costumes. The interior of the restaurant has been commented on in many restaurant reviews.

Tuck into habas catalanas - a rich Catalan stew of black pudding & broad beans - or perhaps a plate of mountain-cured jamon serrano. Free nibbles during happy hour & the friendly staff & background music 'make you almost believe you were in Spain'

Important Information

Please Note: As the menu consists entirely of Tapas (no courses distinction) the 2 4 1 offer means for every 2 tapas dishes ordered the cheapest will be free. Set menus excluded. This restaurant is open Saturday nights from 7pm, and is closed Sundays and Bank Holidays.

    Called and placed a reservation - made a point of mentioning I had a tastecard, which was confirmed by the person taking the booking - both as instructed on the app. Arrived to an empty restaurant, but the staff were friendly and welcoming and the food delicious. Once we asked for the bill, our waitress seemed a bit nervous when I brought out my tastecard. The manager then came over and rudely tossed the tastecard back at me saying it didn't apply as we ordered a set menu. I argued saying nowhere did it say that on the app, after which he pointed it out on the card. Fair enough I said, and suggested including it on the app, considering they're the first options when you open their menu and our waiter didn't mention a thing, even though I called and made the booking and mentioned I had a tastecard. He refused point blank that I did not mention I had the tastecard. We bought a pretty expensive bottle of wine thinking we would have the 2-4-1 offer, so they would've still made around £40 off us - but I honestly believe because it was dead he was trying to make a buck instead of being civil and letting it slide. Completly ruined our date night! Will never go back there! "

    " It's a shame that this restaurant is down a slightly out of the way street with little footfall because eating here was a nice experience. The decor is pleasant and the service was very courteous, with Taste card use being made very easy indeed. The service was very quick and efficient with the only pity being that our tapas dishes didn't come all at once, which would have been nice - instead our eight dishes came in four waves. The food iteself was tasty and of a similar standard to La Tasca, though more choice and some unusual dishes were on offer too. Particular standouts were the patatas bravas with garlic mayonnaise and it was nice to see white asparagus making an appearance on the menu, too. It's definitely worth giving Barcelona a go if you want an alternative to La Tasca - there are too few places to get tapas in London and this place deserves to be busier than it was on the Friday night I visited.

We had lots of tapa's, 4 portions of Paella, 3 litres of Sangria plus beer and vodka and it came to less than £10 per person - and that was including a tip! Rebecca Wood "
