Friends went out for a couple of drinks to celebrate and were so impressed with Barcelona's food and atmosphere we stayed all night. Kudos to the bartender for making it a great evening.

Good food and great service. Nice selection of tapas and wines. Fun to go in warm weather when they have the patio open. Always buzzing with action. Highly recommended.

Tapas were on point. Hanger steak and the sauce it comes with were perfect. Make sure to get it medium rare!

Met a few friends for lunch at Barcelona. We split four tapas plates all of which were very good. Our server was very friendly and attentive.

Those who grew up on Tapas in European countries, say that the Tapas, Sangria, Parrillada and Paella are absolutely as they would expect in Spain. Often they... More

Have enjoyed their amazing tapas on numerous occasions and would highly recommend for a date night or dinner with close family and friends. On a recent visit my wife and I ordered their paella for 2 and it was horrendous. It clearly had been left in the oven too long because it was completely dried out and the seafood was... More

Located in the 1940's Hi Ho Motel, Barcelona Fairfield is a funky throwback in the hills of Easton, just off the Merritt Parkway. The dining room has the feel of Fairfield County circa 1970, with private booths, vibrant wallpaper, and photographs of family and friends. The interior's main focus is the welcoming bar and the beautiful 85-seat patio overlooking the trees and the parkway is the focus in warm weather. Fairfield features an intimate private dining room and a family-friendly vibe during the week.
