The lady who was responsible for our table, was not friendly at all . After finishing our meal, she just gave us a bill without checking if we want to have any deserts!!!

our first time in restaurant. We saw lot of varieties in menu on website and we decided to go to restaurant, but in restaurant there was very limited choice . They didn’t give the seat of our choice, our request was neglected very rudely , When we asked to help to order drinks with non alcoholic coketail , a waitress rejected our request again excusing that she is busy and told us whatever you want to order is in menu . Want to write more but limited characters I can enter here. Horrifying exp.

We had a great time on our first night out in months! The service was great and we felt safe in these covid 19 times. My only suggestion is wiping down of high traffic areas. I watched numerous people walking in and out of the establishment and the door handles were never wiped down by staff.

two of us for lunch. 3 x 14 oz beer and 2 x glass of house wine. 4 x tapas. Total bill after tip was $147. The atmosphere of the place is terrific, the service is really good and the food is very good as well. I just think the total price is a bit high

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.
