2 for 1 at Barcelona Tapas Bar & Restaurant

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.

    Not impressed by this place. Many wines unavailable also vegetarian options not varied and nothing with a sauce except the patatas bravos which was unlike any I have ever had in a Tapas bar as it was a plate of fried potatoes with a mean portion of some kind of spicy sauce on top. On the plus side the meatballs and prawns were very nice. Unlikely to go back "

    On arrival we were greeted by the manager or the owner. He didn't show any initiative and just seated us by the table. Some explanation of the menu would be rather helpful.
    We were lucky to be served by a very nice waitress and even though she didn't speak good English she was very kind and helpful.
    The place itself lacked in atmosphere as we were the only people dining at the time.
    Food was great! My absolutely favourite one was cheese selection and fresh bread!
    Even though we enjoyed the food , I would not suggest this place to my friends.
    Offer includes tapas 241 and at the arrival the manager asked us if we would like some bread with oil and vinegar. We were very surprised that he counted separately bread (£2) , oil and vinegar (£0.75 each ) as free items and at the end , we were almost charged the full bill. This should have been explained to us on the arrival But it feels like this was his plan to begin with. "

    The place is quite nice and food is really good. Though portions are not big. Staff is really poorly trained, and forget orders. So we were really not happy with service and then got a service charge that was 25% of the whole bill. I am never eating there and do personally not recommend it to others. Unless you have no problem with really bad service, forgotten orders and getting extra charges. "

    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. "
