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.

Five-stars all the way, I'm so glad to have taken my friends to Casa Barcelona; it was their first time to Casa Barcelona, and they were wowed! And they were thankful for introducing them to Casa Barcelona, and tapas, and the best-ever Paella in the GTA. We were a party of 4, so we had two different tapas combos which were perfectly designed for variety and flavours; it saved us the mind-boggling task of having to select tapas dishes individually, from the long long list of tapas dishes in the menu. The pink sangria, and the white sangria were a delightful beverage pairing with the tapas dishes. Each combo includes a paella tapa already, so we didn't have to order a regular size paella as originally planned, which we wouldn't have been able to manage anyway as we were happily full and satisfied by the end of the second tapas combo. My friends are going back with their family and friends. And my family of course! Casa Barcelona has always been my family go-to restaurant for birthdays, anniversaries, special family moments. The food is always fresh and perfectly seasoned, and consistently excellent; take your friends there, and your clients, and the special people in your lives, and you can be assured of a lovely evening.

First time at this restaurant. Wife and I are huge Spanish food fans. Tapas and Paella was perfectly balanced with flavour. Ambience was cozy and decor made us feel like we were eating in Spain again. Best paella to date even better than what we had in Spain itself. Excellent job everyone and our compliments to the chefs!! Definitely will be back to enjoy more! magnífico!!!

Somewhat disappointed with this restaurant. Some of the food was interesting but it was not served hot and dishes such as the veal scaloppine tasted like they had been reheated. I would not recommend this restaurant to friends.

The food was alright but too expensive. Best part of the night was the paella. The menu is 5 pages long and confusing and had to be explained. Would come back for the paella not the tapas.

Would not go back. Disappointing experience with the service, and the food and drink. Sangria was overly sweet fruit juice poured over chopped apples (didn't taste any alcohol--told three different servers, and when we were finally brought two new glasses--we were underwhelmed). More than half of the mussels were inedible because they were unopened. Had stomach cramps for most of the night! I typically don't complain, but the prices were way too high for the experience.

It was okay but they served the food too fast. Out for 'date night', we were finished within 45 minutes. Felt rushed and disappointed that they cancelled/no longer have their entertainment. Took us longer to get there. You had to write down your order and I didn't get what I requested. I asked for the chicken and potato croquettes, they were only potato and on the salty side. I only had a single glass of wine, Overall overpriced for the experience.

Very expensive for the amount of food. We ordered the tapas for two. The dishes were small, almost single serve and they came out so fast we had to eat quickly so it wouldn't get cold. The server just kept bringing out small plates and to make room we felt we had to keep scraping food off the dishes onto our plates. Our reservation was for 6:30 and we had finished our meal by 7pm. Dinner at $140.00 should not be over in 30 minutes. We could have had fast food if that's what we were looking for. I really wanted to take our time and enjoy something different. Not impressed. And definitely will not go back.
