Had the Seafood Paella, it was amazing and ate the whole dish! Service was excellent, friendly, courteous and professional. I look forward to coming back and trying all the other dishes with family and friends.

Relax and try it!

If you have been to Spain, I think you need to get that out of your head to enable you to enjoy your experience here. The food is Spanish however it is unique to the chef. Fresh food is used and according to our host, who chatted with us extensively, all home made on the premises. Our server was not Spanish which was a bit disappointing but the owner was very welcoming. We had a variety of dishes which well and truly filled us for $90. This included extra bread, 1 glass of wine and 2 non-alcholic drinks. Quite reasonable I believe. There is probably too much on the menu so you need a lot of time to read it. Our potato dish, rich dish and shrimp dish were great. The soup was also very tasty. Eggplant dish turned out to be a bit too greasy for us. We had to leave before the entertainment so I cannot comment on that but will stay for it next time!

Awesome

On my initial visit to casa barcelona, my wife, dragged me t. Isaid "I'm not going to like this stuff and I won't pay for it". Wow! It knocked my socks off. Even before we left, I was planning to come back within a week.
Since that day 2 years ago, my wife & I have eaten at casa barcelona numerous times. I admit that this place may not be for everybody. If you look for pastas and tiramisu, in your restaurants, stay in woodbridge or highPark
area.
However, if you like great tasting food, this is the place for you. The bonus is the incredibly reasonable prices. 9 and 10 dollars tapas We have never had a bad meal there. We are hard pressed to pick our favorite dishes because there just are too many. 
If you like meat or [ SUCKLING PIG ]pork, they have it. If you like seafood, they have some of the best. If you like vegetarian they have it too. 
 Now you can't beat that. Great food, Great Host and Chef.

Whole Lotta Tapas!

My family of 4 dined at Casa Barcelona on a Saturday night, reservations for 7:30. The whole idea of the restaurant is to serve you tapas, i.e. Spanish appetizers, as your entire meal. Think of a saucer or a dessert plate- that's about the size of each one. We chose 12 different ones (each of us chose 3, which was fun). All tapas are $10 each. There are literally hundreds of tapas to choose from, some being lovely, tasty and definitely not something you could easily make in your kitchen. However, some were quite ordinary and not at all "fancy" or special. That's the source of some of the bad reviews I've read - it's a roll of the dice unless you know the menu well. The wait staff was satisfactorily attentive, the food came quickly, although not all at once, which made some in my party feel rushed, as people kept appearing at our elbows removing plates and setting others down. All the drinks were generous. The restaurant could REALLY do with a makeover, as the decor is totally tacky and dated. However, the 2 live flamenco dancers at 8:30 made up for it. Overall it was an interesting evening and everyone left feeling full and pleased.

I went to Casa Barcelona on Valentine's Day with my wife. The food was very good and the staff was very courteous with us. We had an extremely good red house wine which was 3/4 litres for $26. What a bargain! We tried one of the combinations that was offered that night which gave us the chance to try the beef, fish, poultry, vegetables and the most famous of Spanish dishes - the Paella. I must admit that the dessert took a little longer than I expected, but when I tried it, it was definitely worth the wait. It was a busy night at Casa Barcelona and well worth the visit. My sister-in-law was right that this place was worth it.

What a nightmare. Don't make the mistake of getting caught up in the Kingsway crowd that patronize this way over hyped and over marketed establishment. Area residents come here because there is a lack of ethnic food in the immediate area and the supply of places to go are low. Very lazy(oily) and uninspired dishes match the extremely passionless staff who have gotten used to customers paying HUGE bills without demanding quality and value.

Utterly disappointing experience. Does not have wait staffs to look after the customers. Food wasn't well prepared. The restaurant was expensive for no reason. We would be better off with our own food preparation.

Poor service, and very, very overpriced (and I have lived in Barcelona) They do not seem to care as the good and wealthy people of Etobicoke have much money but maybe a bit naive in dining experience....

The experience was extremely negative. While the service wasn't too bad, the preparation of food was highly questionable. The sardines had not only scales on them, but 2 out of 4 also had the intestines. When asked the server, he indicated that that was how they served them, and that it was up to me to carve them out before eating.

Cute place, with a nice relaxed environment. Food was very tasty and tapas are always fun. However, the price is a quite high, considering the plates are tiny and you need a few of them for a meal. Also, the wine is expensive. We ordered a bottle of Malbec, but it came in a pitcher, so we did not see the bottle. Just saying....

Tapas are great, live music was good, wine was fantastic. I am really impressed with the wine at this place, it is an experience in itself. We had a variety of contradicting dietary restrictions at our table (low carb / lent / seafood allergy), the beauty of their tapas is that everyone can still be happy. Pricing is Ok - we were a party of 4, ate all we could hold, plus desert, and drank 2 liters of their excellent wine and the bill was under $400 including tip, which is pretty good for a restaurant of this type. I hope to be back soon.

I was dissapointed on my arrival, when I was told there was no live entertainment. The advert for this Restau mentioned "live entertainment as a Flamenco show". This is not good and false advertisement, which is unlawful. Please refrain from continuing this behavour and correct your ad. This is too bad, because I liked the entire experience. So please, put my faith back into Casa Barcelona.

We did not care for the food. It had a very oily taste and the paella hardly had any saffron.Did not care for the fish and meat dish. Too oily and too fishy. The waitress was fine .I felt very disappointed about the whole meal. It wasn't cheap and we felt the bread and wine tasted the best. I have had paella before and the rice was yellow from the saffron. This rice was white. I would not recommend this place to anyone and can't understand the reviews I read. Maybe you changed the chef? I made reservations because I came from out of town but we were about the only people there. That alone tells a story on a Friday night.

Te owner was very intrusive talking during 20 minutes about him self and his condo garden showing pictures on his cell phone. Then we ordered tapas, cod croquet and octopus a la gallega. It took 5 minutes to be delivered to our table something unusual in a Spanish restaurant where nornmaly have to wait 20 or 30 minutes. The croquet was make just with potatoes but almost nothing of cod. Te octopus was over cook. We realize that the food was previous cooked ( fast food). We don't recomend this restaurant at all. .

A warm and hospitable environment, friendly service and "genuine" hospitality, delicious Spanish cuisine. We had a wonderful time dining at Casa Barcelona. My third time, it was a pleasure to introduce my guest to this unique and authentic dining experience. The food and wine were exceptional, and our host went out of his way to be charming and focused ensuring we had a great time. In a city where there are way too many corporate chains and pretentious restaurants, this place takes is unique and authentic. Memories of Spain for sure.
