Service was awful and our server forgot to order our appetizers and even our main. There was a staff change, but that is no excuse. We also waited for more than 10 minutes after being seated before our server showed up. I think this is our last visit to Barcelona!

The acoustics aren’t very good. Can’t carry on conversations with out almost yelling. It would be more enjoyable if it weren’t so noisy during a meal. Otherwise the staff were good and so was the food.

The tavern was full and buzzing with Stampede patrons. It was a little loud to chat but hey, it was Stampede week. Food and drinks were delicious. Despite the big crowd, service was attentive and friendly.

We had a great time, was a bit challenging to communicate as it was so raucous for the World Cup, but that is to be expected. Food was better than expected, and service was good.

The only negative comment I have is that it is "so LOUD" in your restaurant. Other than that, great service and food!

For the price of the Caesar salad I ordered, it was the smallest salad in the world. Other than the portion size and price of the meal, it was pleasant. Mark

Was way busier than we expected but was excellent service and atmosphere. We were really excited to try something local and it exceeded our expectations. The menu had a little bit of everything but I wish there was more of an elaborate explanation. I had the short rib sandwhich and it was DEVINE. The rest of the table enjoyed a between breads and the paella. We mutually didn't like the Cesar salad though. The egg was a bizarre flavour/ texture and I was really excited for some bacon! It definetly fell short. Overall though I would definetly return again. Thanks again!

Where to sample sangria in Calgary

Where to sample sangria in Calgary

A Spanish restaurant should do a decent sangria and the Barcelona Tavern doesn’t disappoint. In fact, it offers three solid sangria choices: a rioja (red) with grapefruit, blood orange vodka and wild berries; a blanco (white) with elderflower liqueur, strawberries and kiwi; and a cava (sparkling) with pear vodka, strawberry and mint, all available by the glass or the litre.
