My father has been serving for over 25 years in AC. Very good waiter, polite, professional and the ability to withstand most strenuous work environments. After losing his job in Atlantic City recently, he got hired by Marco before the reopen. He trained himself to understand the dishes, and how they are prepared/served. Shortly after opening, the new owner began drinking heavily every night after close. My father would often be waiting outside for lengths of of time for him to open the door. Upon entering, my father would have to clean the bathrooms of garbage, bile, and utter human waste. Then be chastised when reservations came in and he wasn't prepared to serve. I guess the man never realized that my father picked up some Spanish over the years, and would continually degrade my father to the BoH staff as well as to customers. He is an avid racist and a misogynistic pig. In all of the years I have seen my father come home from bad days at work, never did I see him like he was after coming home from Barcelona. After a month of not getting paid and shrugged off, my father was forced to quit to find other work. The man has still not paid my father for the hours serving, nor the hours of manual labor he did to prepare the shop for reopen.

Had the fried calamari app and paella valencia entree. It was all awesome! Service was spot on. Prices were fair. The bread they served before the meal could have been warm/fresher but thats no biggie. Would eat there again. They also do coupon deals on groupon and livingsocial so look them up on there. It was easy to use the groupon one for 10 bucks off.

Great atomasphere and service. I've been there a couple times, once with my husband and once with a group of friends and both times I had a great experience. I'm not a big seafood person but the gnocchi were awesome and my husband and friends loved their meals. The waitstaff took care of our every need. It is BYOB so I brought my own Rum and they continued to bring me Diet Coke to go along with it. If you get the chance you need to try this place out!

Wonderful food, exquisitely prepared. A wide variety of Iberian dishes. Excellent service and wonderful atmosphere. Prices are extremely reasonable and the prefix menu is an absolute bargain. Highly reccomended to anyone interested in fine food. Worth driving 30 minutes for! A great restaurant.

Went here Sunday night after PITMAN theatre show.. HOPING TO GET the PRICE FIX menu.. Wasnt available as it was mothers day.. Figured we would eat here anyway. servers tried to sell water and we asked for TAP. OK.. then they told us specials.. My wife had to ask prices.. The specials were MORE EXPENSIVE then what was on the menu. She left and 10 minutes later a different waitress came to take our order. We Ordered an appetizer, which I had to show her which one it was on the menu, as it appeared she didnt know what I was asking for .. I showed her BUT they still brought the wrong one. Luckily, the cook was walking through and I stopped him and he corrected it for us. We did order a second appetizer, empanadas, which was great! main course was very good too! My wife had Clams and Mussles and pasta and it was one of the best from a restaurant we have had. I had PAELLA and when it came, the waitress plated it which was a nich touch (however she brought the wrong dinner plate and had to get a new one so she could serve). After dinner one waitress came back asking if we wanted coffee and desert. I said YES we want coffee and to let us know what the desert selections are. She left and 10 minutes later another waitress came asking if we wanted coffee.. I told them that we already said we did and she said no one took the order yet.. so, she left and then brought coffee.. another 10 minutes went by and the other waitress came back asking if we want desert. by then we were DONE the coffee so we declined. I asked for check. 10 minutes later she brought it. I put my credit card in with the check and waited another 15 minutes until someone come to process it. All in all, the food is good but the service needs work. I will go back to try the price fix menu. I dont think I would be able to go on a regular basis and eat from the non price fix menu as the regular prices are TOO EXPENSIVE for what you get. Im giving the value a FROWN... WHY, because, as I stated the regular menu is expensive but for $15 the price fix looks to be a good value.

Horrible experience, cold bread, raw stuffed calamari, raw stuffed tilapia and cold stuffed layer potatoes. This is our second time in this place, one about a year ago and today another try. We are never going back to this place. Sorry better places around. The owner should get a grip and fixed the problems. Maybe he or she don't care. Adios !!!

My husband and I dined at Barcelona for the first and last time on October 16. The bread was cold and stale when it came out--our first indication that we might not be in for a great dinner! My chicken entree was tasteless and tough, and my husband's fish was also disappointing. Both entrees came with a side of decent mashed potatoes and a pile of julienned vegetables swimming in butter. For the price, there were many better options in the area where we could have dined.
