Great place, excellent modern and open atmosphere with a large sense of space. Because of the high ceilings and large space , the energy in this establishment is upbeat and vibrant. Server was super friendly and made us laugh. I ordered the grilled cheese short rib and it is one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches I've ever had. Can't comment on price as I didn't pay but bgg it was all good! Would definitely go again More...
Really like the food here. The burgers are excellent. The staff is very nice and helpful
Great atmosphere for a quick lunch meetingTook my team here and enjoyed excellent service, drinks and mealsDefinitely would leave a recommendation
Stopped in at lunch during Stampede. Place was packed, atmosphere excellent. Even though extremely busy, the service was excellent. We had a great lunch with very good food and lots of drinks. A few of us stayed and they allowed us to move to an open spot on the patio. Was a great visit. More...
Excellent food and drink
Good open atmosphere
The grilled cheese is to die for! Good atmosphere and service!
Great food. But the prices were horrific for the same quality and quantity you'd actually get in Spain.
Excellent food even late
Good but noisy!
Service is a hit and miss and its crazy expensive. But food is delish. I'd return... Just not too often.
great place with awesome huge burgers! enjoyed atmosphere and seats
Martin The Orange
Pretty good food, kind staff, not the greatest mules, and rather pricy
The food is really great, but the dining room is so loud it's hard to have a conversation with the people next to you.
We come here on Fridays for their $6 Estrella beer special. One of my favorite beers forsure. Super tasty calamari too!
Boa comida, bom atendimento mas não é um lugar para conversar baixo.
It's not bad, I sit inside, a bit nosier than I thought but overall is good. Will go back.
Nice place, nice people, good food
Good place with a variety of dishes both to share or for yourself. Prices are a bit on the high end but par for the area. Needs more beer selection. The tomato soup is amazing.
Camilla Fernandes de Oliveira
The food is very tasty
Great food, great staff, is a little noisy so if you need an in depth conversation this isn't the place for your meal.
This is a fantastic place to go for some delicious food! The service we had was great and the atmosphere is really laid back. I will definitely be going back again and highly recommend recommend it! More...
Good value for money. Menu is just the right size with good options. Great food and service.Update June 21 Food is still great, best risotto I have probably ever had. Definitely try the fried manchego. Good drink selections, but our appy was out faster than our cocktails (by alot). More...
Had corporate breakfast here. Nice buffet spread. Candied bacon was delicious
Wonderful service by suzie.she went above and beyond , thank you so much for making my best friends birthday weekend start off so well.. Food was Fantastic. No complaints at all! More...
Kamyar Shams Pour
Very nice vibe, excellent variety in the menu. Tomato soup was to die for (I'm a big fan of soup) and the burger hit the right spot so well we went back a few weeks later just to enjoy it again.
One of my favorite places to watch a Barça game. A very good menu, along with great cocktails. Nice atmosphere to enjoy while downtown.
Food was great, service great, its a big space with lots of tv's but unless im going downtown for a reason... too expensive to just go there for drinks and food.
Their breakfast is awesome!
They are very busy during the week. However the food comes fast.
Soooo amazing!!! Forgot to take a photo of the amazingness because it was too good!!! Great food, great service, great venue!!! If you haven't checked it out you need too!!! More...
Good place, good food, and solid people
Waitress was really friendly. Food was very good, paella was almost perfect. Rice could have been better.
Food was great, atmosphere was relaxed and fun. Service was awesome! We had the Sangria special on Saturday. The sangria was delicious, there was a bit too much ice in it, got watered down. But, that would be my only complaint m More...
Really great spot with delicious food, a great drink menu and an amazing atmosphere
Great food, service and room!
Barcelona tavern is a favorite spot for food. Everything on the menu tastes great and make sure you leave room for the churros!!
Excellent tapas and 1/2 wine on Mondays is a great way to spend a few hours with friends. A very pleasant atmosphere so you can hear your company speak etc.
Great place on a Friday , $5 beers and the tapas are lovely. Make sure you get the pork ribs , they are gorgeous!!
Great tasty food and service but quite loud for an afternoon meal. Would be great to watch sports, as many TVs in different locations for viewing
Big pan of Paella is cool to share with a group. Decent place.
Perfect service and attention to details by the waiter. The food could be improved to be somewhere close the actual food you get to eat in Barcelona. But fair enough in overall!
Decent pub food. A bit pricey but ambiance was great! Our server was a bit cold but maybe she was having an off day. We ordered buttermilk fried chicken, the Wagyu burger, grilled cheese with slow-cooked ribs, seafood paella, and calamari. We were satisfied and full. Great beer selection too! More...
Reasonable prices and friendly service. Always a busy place during the afternoon work rush.
Fantastic food, wonderful atmosphere!!
My husband learned about Barcelona Tavern while working on a construction project and we had to stop by with some friends. It’s a unique place with fun decor, helpful staff, and excellent food. Everything we tried was good (charcuterie, kale salad, mushroom pizza) however the filet mignon was UNBELIEVABLE! My husband ( a real beefatrian, who’s incredible on the bbq) said the beef tenderloin was the best he’s ever had. The brussel sprouts complimented it nicely. I’m new to the gluten free pizza crust world so don’t have lots of things to compare against, but I really enjoyed it. My husband tried the GF pizza and thought it was excellent substitute. More...
Food is always great here, the truffle fries are a must try.
Clean. Excellent food great atmosphere
The food was great! Also, beer! We used the private room for a LGBT Chamber of Commerce meeting.
great service !
Our server Justin at the bar was amazing
Menu is one of my favorites. Lots of choices.
If you are up for a paella this is a place to be in Calgary. Delicious food, great atmosphere, and friendly staff what more can you ask?
Most of the dishes were delicious if not all of what I tried. The paella did not disappoint and the risotta surprised me (in a good way). Would definitely recommend this place a try. More...
Excellent food, great service!
Good food good portions, could use larger variety of cocktails
Victor Alexis Diaz Murillo
The food, beer and service was excellent and the atmosphere is awesomeI ordered chicken and pasta and was perfect
Great atmosphere and food. Chicken parmesan sandwich is amazing there. We had Chelsea serve us that night and she was amazing. Always checked in on us and was fast with our drink orders. More...
My go-to downtown
Delicious food. Service is a bit slow and you leave smelling like a mix of all the food they serve
A great way to bring in the new year! Great service great food clean and very professional.
Are you guys hiring?
Great atmosphere and pizzas
This was so good. Especially the calamari and the ribs.
We were at a Christmas Party here... Great food and drinks!!!
Simply put, this place is amazing!!!The food was super delicious and well plated. A modern to a simple classic!!! I had the steak sandwich for lunch, cooked to perfection. Topped with crispy kale and a kale caesar salad with slices of italian sauage, like I said earlier - delicious. The service was amazing. I can't remember the last time I ate somewhere with such great service, just wow. Atmosphere is relaxed and professional at lunch, lots of business professioanls. Great place for lunch meetings or gatherings. More...
Great decor & great service
Great service. Good selection of taps. Good food.
Pimms and Tater tots, mmmm!!!!
Add a great lunch.
Good beverage selection. Attentive serving staff.
Nice Place to be. Good Food, cold Beer
Always a fun.
Great place for events. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Good place for a business lunch. It was busy and a popular place. Mostly business men and not a lot of ladies which surprised me.
Good food and drink. Very noisy spot if you want to chat.
Very hip, drinks were made with a lot of effort put in. Venue is nice.
Good place for a party. I have been here for several corporate functions all well done and good food.
Great spot for drinks with friends
I really like this place! Different than what you get in most of downtown Calgary in terms of the style of food. I felt like I was back in Europe. We arrived during the lunch rush and the hostess, Haley I think was very friendly and accommodating and got us a spot at the bar. The bartender provided us with fast and efficient service and was friendly too.I only had a few of the tapas, fried manchego, the potatoes, and a couple cold Peroni on tap, and the tomatoes Barcelona we're to die for. Good espresso too! Will definitely be back. More...
Nice place for a casual drink with other professionals, but noisy.
Good selection of spanish Tapas.
Great place for some Spanish food. Try the paella
Sangria was amazing. The server we had was amazing but it was clear that there were too many people for one person.
Silvia Paulina Gonzàlez Anguiano
Muy buen lugar para disfrutar unas tapas, cerveza y vino
Food is phenomenal. The wait staff and bartenders are friendly and attentive, even with large parties.
Very nice breakfast spot
a little expensive but the food is good.
Good food great service
Good servers but need new music
Quite liked this little bar, we attended a wedding reception there for a friend. The decor was well done, the bar tenders and staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was top knotch. We will be returning soon for more! More...
Food was pretty good. Nice place and good location.
Nice atmosphere great food
Fun place. Service was quick and friendly. Food was pretty darn tasty but we only had a couple of the Tapas. My wife thought the sangria blanco was a bit too sweet and tasted more like a mimosa. I would certainly go back.
Best parmesan chicken in the world. Seriously delicious. Sauced but slightly crisped slabs of delicious moist chicken on top of savoury and mildly sweet pasta with prosciutto that is so crisp and flavourful it melts on your tongue. Excellent service and staff with a very nice house wine as well as a nice variety of other wines to choose from including varieties from the Okanagan and New Zealand.Great wide open dining room and bar.Will definitely be returning. More...
Amazing place, great service, cool staff
GreAt service always
Prato saboroso e música boa comandada por um DJ.
It’s a good vibe Great staff and a healthy plethora of seating and beverage. Always felt like the food was overpriced but then again I’m a bit cheap.
Good Tapas. Decent service. Very loud inside.
Very tasty for breakfast, plus they take reservations.
The best ever, my #1 place in Calgary. Love spain food, friendly service, great location. Price little over average but it worth it. Good that is far from my home. Lol. More...
Wonderful food and staff! It's a bit pricey but they are generous with their servings which makes up for the additional price. The venue is beautiful.
Great food, great service, great location
Great spot JD and Jeff have a gold mine here.
Good food, Alberta steak sandwich was outstanding. The venue is nice. It's fairly noise and you have to talk louder to be heard. Wonderful staff.
Couldn't have asked for a better place to stop in and have a couple of drinks.
Rib appetizer was delicious
Fantastic food, great selection of beer / wine / highballs, great location and lovely atmosphere. Would come here again.
Alonso E. Rodriguez
Great location to watch sports and enjoy healthy Mediterranean inspired food and beverages.
The food is good, but prices are a little high for what is essentially pub grub. Should be 3-4$ less across the menu.
Beautiful restaurant, great atmosphere.
Jack H Cai
Great ribs, taste very delicious
Ok tapas, a few nice dishes on the main course menu
Great service and food although a bit too loud at times.
Great spot, great food
Had appies after work. Good snacks. Pretty busy which seems well deserved.
Had an after work event there. Service was friendly and drinks tasty. Food? So so. The biggest strike was the golf machine and the repeated sound of a slamming door. Needless to say, not the most welcoming sound to contend with. More...
P. Glenn Todd
Food and service were good
My girlfriend and I ate at Barcelona Tavern and enjoyed our dinners. We both got squid ink paella, with an included appetizer and dessert as part of a $28, 3-course meal. For our drinks, I got a smoked-Old Fashioned and my lady got a blood orange and grapefruit sangria. The food was good, the drinks were great and the atmosphere was nice. The only downside was the wait for our food. Aside from that I would recommend Barcelona Tavern. More...
Great food... I am African, we ain't really impressed with white people food but they did a great job with the flavour of the rice and the ribs is to die for.
yep not my name M
Love this place! It's trendy and bustling with some very good food and beverages. Tapas menu is what brings us back as well as their buck a shuck night.I'd suggest you try the Chorizo Poppers and STK & Frites. It is a bit pricy here however so won't be for everyone.The staff are friendly and interactive and present themselves well. Just a friendly tip here. As with any establishment they work very hard and will have their off times, so if you notice your wait staff is having a long day just make them laugh an smile when they do come to your table and you will typically see them perk up if you brighten their day. Then there is the management. They are on point! Without me asking fixed a minor issue on one occasion and a not so minor one on another and went above and beyond. Seriously top notch service! More...
Tapas and drinks downtown in an inviting atmosphere. 10/10 will be back
Great food and service
It's a casual dining, restaurant, and bar. Day time is filled with corporate parties and evening is filled with all others. Casual atmosphere, lots of choices for drinks, a nice upper level for tv games. I haven't had much food so i don't know what the choices are. If you want to have casual good times, this is a good place. More...
A bit pricey but the food is worth it
We tried the paella with squid ink and chorizo and the chicken parmesan with pasta in brown butter. Both were yummy! We can't wait for a chance to try this place for breakfast!
Staff was very accommodating as we moved from the patio to inside. Best steak sandwich I've ever had. Loved the churros for dessert. Can't wait to go back.
It was okay
Amazing service. The sangria is authentic and delicious. Great place to start a night out!
Really good service and tasty food. Plenty of big screens to watch sport.
Great menu, a place where even the pickiest eater will find something they like. Moderately priced drinks, great service.
Great place, great food, great staff and amazing atmosphere
Awesome burger and salad. Happening crowd and good staff
Great location right in the heart of 8th avenue. Good food, great service and venue.
Awsome place for a beer. Hot servers good food
Great service. Awesome environment. Best sous chef in the city
Dheana Felicity Ramsay
Had an after work networking event there. Good service, tasty drinks and apps. Only complaint is the noise from the golf machine upstairs. It sounded like someone was angrily slamming a door. More...
The food was good along with a good environment to.hang out with friends.
It's hard to find a Kale and beet salad This good. The girls were lovely as well. Thanks
Great service and atmosphere for a drink. Not crazy about the menu after work.
What an awesome establishment. The staff treat you like royalty and the food is delicious. Would highly recommend this place for everything from business lunches to winding down on a friday afternoon with the crew. Keep up the good work over there.
Quality food. Delivered on time. Great customer experience.
The food is great! Service was pretty good too.
Unreal food and unbelievable cocktails
Had an amazing meal here! Everyone's orders came out looking and tasting extremely delicious. I had the beef dip and it was easily the best I've ever tasted. The garlic fries are also to die for. I can't wait to go back and try the brunch menu! More...
The food is very flavorful had 5 appetizers amongst friends and everything was delicious
Good food ! the chef's recommended pizza (or pie as they call it here ) is outstanding !, excellent location ... but the service could be better
Amazing tapas and fantastic service.
Nice decor. Good staff.
Tapas food was great. Staff was awesome
We were going to have a business breakfast next door to the Barcelona Tavern (and even had reservations), but when we arrived we were told they'd closed the kitchen - 10am. Luckily Barcelona Tavern told us they'd keep their kitchen open for us. Fantastic staff, and absolutely amazing food. I had the cowboy omelette, and would make a trip back just to have it again. The only negative comment is that due to the ceiling having an industrial look to it, it's fairly noisy so you have to talk louder to be heard. More...
Great place for gathering
Pretty tasty food. Enjoyed it, nice looking wait staff too!!
Best place for good food and to catch world cup games!
One of my favorite restaurants in Calgary. Great selection of food and beverages. Love their Gin & Tonic menu.
Nice supper our server was really nice the food was excellent!!! Great evening on the terrace!!
I was half outside and half inside
Trendy fun and fair priced. Nice people. We really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely return.
Pretty nice. friendly staff
Very good place to have a pint of beer on the patio on bright summer day
One if the best business lunch spots in downtown Calgary. Even if you are a tourist, swing in for a great lunch with friendly service.
Excellent food, ambience, & great staff - definitely recommended
Bonne ambiance avec de bons plats. Très bien pour regarder divers événements sportifs.
Was here for a Christmas party. Great atmosphere.
A little pricy but nice
Very good food. Pretty busy place but there's usually space available.
Great service, was in and out in 25 minutes during a pub crawl.
Pretty nice snacks to go with very good sangria
Great tasting food, great service
Great girls.great food.id eat there again
Good food and nice atmosphere. The service was a bit slow....
Great atmosphere, good food, awesome staff! Would recommend for sure
Pretty chill spot. Be 5 stars if they knocked 50 cents off their drink prices
Great breakfast meeting spot
Good place for catching up and for meetings...
Red Deer Roughneck
Good food and great waitresses
Went to Barcelona with a friend last night for her birthday. Courntey was serving us and made my girlfriend feel so special for her birthday. Great atmosphere & great drinks. The Greek ribs are amazing! You have to check this place out! More...
First time visiting today and the service was fantastic! Will definitely be back again soon!
Bartender Christine is great
Decent tapas, lively and fun atmosphere, good sangria. Great location right on Stephen Ave.
Loud. Crowded in the front but the back was empty.
Elaine Katie Whalen
Awesome atmosphere, its a pretty cool spot and the food is good! The staff are friendly as well.
Great sample of a European lunch spot. Tapas are great to share, with good wines from several regions, including Spanish. Friendly service, and nice open atmosphere.
Delicious red sangria!
Great server, great food, apps are amazing
Good vibe.. good food.. good drinks
Pleasantly surprised it's open for breakfast. Food quite good but service only so so
Nice food and service. Just a bit too loud to talk, but on the other hand, nobody can hear your conversation:) Also, I dropped my bracelet there one night. I called there and was told that they found it and it was ready to pick up. Thank you! More...
Wonderful food and service
I really enjoy the ambience here. I can't put my finger on it though. It's nothing like anything in Barcelona, so don't expect that kind of vibe. They have good food (I really like a pizza they have with a white sauce and arugula ... like pizza Bianca in Italy) and the service is certainly good enough. Your mileage may vary, but I give it two thumbs up. More...
Incredible food and ambiance. Very good service!
Bellissimo Pub con ottima birra
Great food, but lunchtime service can be slow
Busy during lunch hour with lots of people who work in nearby offices. Quite spacious so doesn't feel cramped. Spanish take on alot of common dishes. Really good food overall. Would come back. More...
I've been here a few times abd always enjoy myself. The most recent was for a company function, they'd rented out the whole place. Not the most veggie friendly place for sure. They did have amazing lobster spoons though and delicious hummus for appetizers. For the company event they opened up the dance floor, had a dj and constant appies going around. The dance floor itself was pretty small but as this isn't usually a dance place it made sense. During the summer they have a wonderful patio open on Stephen ave which is a great location for late night strolls in down town Calgary. Pricier than most the restaurants on Stephen avenue but not by much and it's definitly good eats. More...
Amazing food and service
Squeezed us in on a busy night, fast service and tasty food.
The Veal Bomba was delicious. The bartender made great tapas recommendation. A little pricey but overall good experience.
Generally great food. Love the cocktails!
Very helpful Staff!
Shane the Kidd
Weak, static beer list. The hot waitresses, barely clothed make me feel like I am at a strip club. But not by choice.
Been here a couple times, the staff is awesome! Megs remembered me and was outstanding at recommending lunch. Highly recommend this place and the staff!
Awesome service, great sangrias. Looking forward to coming back!
Love it for cocktails, upper scale atmosphere, friendly staff
Good for groups. A nice selection of beers. Sometimes packed with college groups which can be annoying..
Larger than it looks with good food and an okay beer selection.
Good food and great drink selection
Great sports bar with excellent food with a Spanish theme.
Great venue for hosting lots of friends.
Safia Mustafa Ali
pretty great selection something for everyone, great atmosphere; lobster ravioli was super delicious
Food was good, portioning a bit odd, staff were enjoyable.
We hosted a work event here, and I was so pleased with the service. Kaitlyn was great as responding quickly, with information, and making the booking easy for us. We were delayed slightly in getting there, but it was no problem for them to shift our food a little later. Food and drink selection was great. Service was friendly and prompt. We had a wonderful evening and will be back again. More...
Great servers and the food is good too!
A little pricey but the food is so delicious. The tapas portions are more on the western size than European. So are better for larger groups or only a few for dishes for a couple. All three styles of sangria are good but prefer the cava. More...
Pretty large restaurant that appears to have multiple floors.
Been here twice, once for a special Halloween and once for dinner and drinks both were great and the staff was very friendly.
Food is super , portions are not huge but the food is so good I would soon have quality over quantity any day. Good selection of drinks and our server we as very help . Will definitely be going back
Late lunch on a Thursday. Place was friendly, clean, and the food was great. Would love to come back for the evening scene.
Love the Company... The Food is good but generally isn't hot enough... always enjoy the drinks and the atmosphere
This place has a great selection of European beer in bottle and tap. Service and food is really great and is like that each time I go.
Sooooo good love the drinks and food
John G. Addy
Excellent food and service!
Great spot! Great atmosphere! Highly recommended!
Great food and service but no Sunday brunch!
Had an awesome experience v
We ate the Bison steak meals and they were superb. Great service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Food was good, beer selection was decent, but it was kind of expensive.
Had the seafood paella that Maria recommended which was amazing! Her service was great and great value I will definitely come back and I would love to be served by her she made my husband and I feel comfortable and made us laugh with her bubbly personality... also the music and atmosphere was great definitely will come back More...
This place was pretty awesome, it has a great atmosphere, good and friendly service but something is up with the spiced RUM, did not taste of a quality brand. On the other hand my co-worker had sever smoked whiskey drinks and let me tell you, it smelled amazing, to bad I am not a whiskey drinker ;-) More...
Good food, good beer. Would go again.
perfect place and design perfect food
We went for Buck a Shuck and the 4 of us enjoyed our visit. Service was very attentive contrary to some reviews on here so give it a shot for yourself!
Great grub, atmosphere, staff.
The food is delicious!! It can be a little bit loud, but the food is worth it for sure. Good deal on wine :)
Great place for a working breakfast or to watch the world go by
Decent food at a decent price. The restaurant offers something different from your typical restaurant here in Calgary. Its worth a try.
Barcelona is a very mixed bag. We ordered a trio of items including the parmesan fries (which are absolutely massive) and were pretty satisfied for the two of us. We also very much enjoyed our desert, the 'Leche Frida,' which was a scoop of Fiasco Gelato atop Fried Milk. Very tasty. That said, the prices are high, which is likely a consequence of low traffic and high costs. We did have a pretty different experience from many reviewers however, as the wait staff we got were great. Fantastic, attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Value for dollar is really the only major hit against Barcelona, though I suppose is a pretty big one. More...
Great staff. Fantastic service.
Nice place and good food, but quite pricy
Went there with a couple of my business clients in the evening. Amazed at the level of service we got even though we weren't all dressed up in suits :D. Really liked the food and will most certainly be back. More...
Really liked everything about Barcelona tavern
Five stars for the Tarragon Cream Mussels...
Very nice ambiance for party.
Great menu. The tapas selection is pretty good, but they also have pretty good sandwich/burger and salad options for the lunch crowd. Try the Messi Burger with one of their gin and tonics. More...
Nice place with lots of room. Good beer selection and interesting food
We used the team from Barcelona Taven for a catered event. Everything from the fast communication, professional service, and most importantly the FOOD was all 5 stars. Thanks to Andrew and the team!Highly Recommended! More...
Food and service were great. Great for a quick lunch downtown or a few bevys after work.
Would not say this is a tavern...the restaurant concept is more like cactus club or milestone and thus the food and service are alike as well.The Good: Wide variety of gin. Lots of seating space. Bad: Bar tenders don't know a lot of drinks off by heart. Only street pay parking. More...
Great selection of beers and appies, especially their truffle fries! Half price off bottles of wine promos also makes it appealing for an after-work get together spot.
Some of the best food I've ever had with a great selection of drinks too! Desserts are absolutely a must try (each!)
Chris van Kampen
Excellent food and service. The Mesi Burger was delicious and the beer was nice and cold! When I forgot to ask for a receipt I called and they emailed it to me within minutes. Well done, will go back for sure!
Good quality food.
