Beautiful, jaw dropping location, but after the initial reaction, becomes dinner with 60 other people on a very crowded, very noisy, balcony. Servers were friendly, but seemed the table of ten next to us garnered more attention than we. The paella was much smaller than expected, just barely enough for we two. I can see how it's a popular tourist... More

Awesome view and atmosphere, I really liked the place and where its located. The food was just OK compared to other spanish food I've tasted in Spain. The service was excellent, it seems their customer training is top notch, should be an example for other restaurants for sure.

We always make a trip to Barcelona Tapas on our visits to Puerto Vallarta. The Tapas are always excellent, the wait staff is attentive and the atmosphere is perfect. The view for sunset can't be beat.

We came as a group of 14 for drinks, sunset and appetizers. The food was amazing. The manager is super attentive. The bacon wrapped dates, grilled calamari, shrimp in oil, and red Sangria were delicious. The whole menu was amazing and I wished we could have stayed for dinner. I would definitely return and also take a Paella class from... More

This wonderful tapas restaurant, tucked away up a hilly side street in Puerto Vallarta served up a very memorable evening. Judging by the full tables many others would agree. Ample servings of a variety of breads and a complimentary potato salad (how often do you see that?) to start were followed by piping hot, very flavour able dishes which were... More

We were visiting PV for the first time since 1972 and has it changed. We went with two other couples who are old friends who live in PV. They had eaten there before and wanted to try it again. After the climb that is long and steep up several flights of stairs we arrived at the top dining room that... More

Six of us came for sunset, wine and dinner. The restaurant is 4 blocks up from the Malecon ( very convenient after shopping) and on the top floor of a converted house. It was just remodeled, gorgeous decor, modern, clean, view of the City and the Bay. The waiters and service were wonderful, and food was delicious. We were fortunate... More

Best fun we had all week. Jain Pablo, chef, teaches up 12 people how to make ceviche, paella, salad, etc. and then serves every course as the wines flow. Main dish served in spectacular dining room over lookin city and bay. About 45USD. Terrific people, great place...would return.

This restaurant was recommended by a local and we're glad we dined here. If you like "city" views this place sits above the Malecon area. Every tapas dish we tried was good in presentation and a complimentary fusions of spanish & mexican flavorings. The tapas servings were generous and service was excellent. It was a very pleasant walk from the... More

We enjoy the Tapas style of eating so we went to Barcelona Tapas with friends and family. On this visit we were seated at the very top level. This was excellent both for the View and it was a little quieter. Enrico provided excellent service. We enjoyed the potato salad and the Mediterranean salad to start. We then tried garlic... More
