BARcelona Tapas - Indianapolis Ratings and Reviews
Our second visit to this downtown Indy restaurant was as good as the first! We live 3 hours away, but coming here is a highlight of our annual trip to Indianapolis. Colorful Spanish-themed decor is so warm and authentic, and so are the tapas. We love the baked goat cheese, grilled sausages, and cod. This year we split the Tres Leches cake, and it was phenomenal! We wished we lived closer to this neighborhood gem.
Our table was a two seater - small and cramped at the wall. The Tapas we choose were mediocre and I am being kind. (1) The Bread and Olive oil - skip. (2) Meat and Cheese platter was very good (waiter could have told us the history of the Jamon Ham); (3)Skip the Calamari - greasy, zero taste and the sauce did not compliment the dish. (4) Sausage Platter, again, history on the sausage would have been nice. The Spanish Chorizo saved the plate. Never of us finished the second sausage. It had literally no flavor.(5)( I loved the Cauliflower and Saffron and (6) high marks for the Shrimp in garlic sauce. The(7) Dessert Churros were not good at all - saturated in fat and over sugared...really tasteless except for what was mentioned. (8) The flan was excellent - less like traditional flan but the taste and creamy texture rounded out the dinner.
Excellent atmosphere, great food, and speedy service! We recently booked reservations for a group of 8 and were able to order an assortment of tapas and try almost everything on the menu! If you are a foodie, this place is for you. Also accommodating for picky eaters, although they will not have as much to choose from. Donte was our server and made sure to create an enjoyable, once in a lifetime experience for our party. Highly recommend!
Found on Open Table Night of, looked good so I booked for 5 @ 6:30. Was just enough off the main drag but close enough to walk if warmer.
3 of the guest were unfamiliar with Tapas style and left Loving it and the place.
Recommend it highly if in downtown Indy!
The food was good, especially the dates with goat cheese. Our server was cordial, though absent for periods at a time. The room was kind of loud for regular conversation. Details were missing like a paper towel holder in the men's room. Overall, we were very pleased and will return.
This was our first visit to BARcelona. We had a great waiter in this busy restaurant. We wanted to try tapas before we go to Barcelona at the end of the month. Our favorite tapas were the Setas Salteadas Con Amontillado ( sautéed mushrooms) and the Alcachofas Fritas (crispy Artichokes). Also enjoyed the Croquetas De Pollo Jamon (chicken and Serrano ham croquettes) although there were only 3 to an order when we had 4 people. We also shared the Paella Valencia and the Paella de Pollo Y Salchicha. These were good but not outstanding.
We really had a good experience at BARcelona and would recommend this tapas restaurant to anyone.
They were out of the Bacalao, but when the waitress let the chef know that it was my favorite, and I was really disappointed; the chef made up some more by hand on the fly. Since we live an hour away, I was especially grateful and appreciative that they did that for me.
I picked BARcelona because it was late, I didn't want to drive, and it was only a block from my hotel. I am familiar with tapas restaurants and often dine at one in my home town.
The selection was more than adequate. I was surprised at the size of each order - the three tapas I ordered could easily have fed two where I am used to needing three tapas per person, so a big plus on value.
The three I ordered were tasty, but not extraordinary.
The spinach salad was everything it said in the menu, not over-dressed, and very filling, almost a meal in itself.
The sausages were nicely browned but not outstanding in flavor, more like a selection of high-end hotdogs.
The mussels were juicy with a really good, spicy broth that I soaked up with the giant croutons from my salad, but two of them were unopened. Even so there were more than enough that I could have shared.
The dark chocolate brownie suffered from dryness, possibly because by the time I ordered it the brownie was several hours old.
The beer I had was tasty, a seasonal from the Bell brewery. It was not what I ordered, though, as I had ordered the seasonal from Biers, a local brewery. It also did not arrive until well into my meal.
If I was back in Indianapolis I would like to give BARcelona a second try, earlier in the evening, to see if the service was better and the deserts gooier.
I have eaten tapas all over the world and I was very disappointed by this restaurant. It was overpriced for what it was. The food was not bad but it wasn't great. The croquettes order only came with three small balls. The cauliflower dish was good but it was in a weird broth that spoiled the dish. The crispy artichokes were very good and I would recommend that. The patatas bravas were not eventually cooked. If you know your tapas food, I wouldn't recommend this spot.
Service was nice and there is lot of seating available. Nice location.
