Tapas, paella & more Spanish fare served with a broad wine list in a lively industrial-chic space.- Google
"Try: Beet Salad was definitely my favorite dish followed by Gambas Ajillo."
"Make sure you are seated in the bar area though."

My girlfriends and I went here for happy hour this last week. The food is always great and love the vibe. What really took this experience to the 5 star rating, was our server Malia. She was so friendly and absolutely accommodating. Her above and beyond customer service will definitely keep us coming back for more. Thanks for a very enjoyable evening.

Purty tasty, and altho a bit pricey, Monday nights they've an all night HH special that allows one to enjoy true tapa-style cuisine, meaning, bring 4-5 friends, everyone order 2 dishes each to share, that y'all will have 1 bite, and maybe 2 sangria's, and you're good for $20/pp...We'd a group of 16 and some we're excited to have tried the place, and if it weren't for the way we did it, stated they'd prolly not have ever ventured out becuz they couldn't decide on the different options, so Monday nights are my suggestion ALL THE WAY, altho I've been a few other nights to just enjoy the ambiance and delectable wine selection on the patio...

Barlata has really good deals for happy hour! Make sure you are seated in the bar area though. The drinks are cheap and the sangria changes regularly. There are around 12 tapas on the happy hour menu, so you get to try a lot of snacks and such. Insider's tip: Get the Oxtail it's not on the happy hour but it's totally worth it!!!

In general, I love Tapas bars. It's nice to step outside of your day to day likes and dislikes and try something new without having to order a big dish. Barlata is a bright, noisy place on a Saturday night but not so loud that you can't hear your dinner companions. Our waiter was wonderful. He looked a bit like Anthony Bourdain and was very conscientious of our friends who have allergies and made sure every dish was safe without being overly dramatic about it. We probably ordered one of everything on the menu and we were not disappointed. From olives to mussels to short ribs, everything was prepared and served beautifully. Our out of town dinner guests were delighted. The cocktails were also delicious and my friend from Scotland was crazy about the Bee's Knee's.

The first real Spanish tapas bar in Austin. Our first time here, we went after returning from Spain and loved it, but were shocked by the bill. Order wisely! We have returned 2-3 times and are a bit more reserved in our ordering. Everything that we have had is EXCELLENT.

Just experienced Barlata for the first time this weekend and we enjoyed this Austin gem. The atmosphere is very relaxing after a busy week. We enjoyed the cheese plate and kale salad. Great way to experience tapas here in Austin.

This place was so great. We came in because our first choice was too crowded for a quick Thursday dinner and we lacked our usual preparation. A little loud, but the food was so amazing! Shrimp Ajillo, Paella Negre, and the Patats Bravas were all so amazing. We asked for more bread so we could dip them in the Shrimp and garlic oil. The only thing better than the food was the service. I didn't catch our waitresses name, but she was so personable and made perfect recommendations. The wine was delicious, and we finished off with the Barlata Tarta. Again, our waitress came through with a recommendation to change the ice cream to the olorosso sherry and she was right. 100% loved it! Will be back, but not frequently due to the cost.

Catalan-born Olivella has created a unique menu that features a variety of tapas, including latas, classic Spanish appetizers served in small tin cans, as well as larger plates and an impressive array of paella. Each item is a subtle elaboration on a traditional dish.
