Tapas is easy to get wrong and there's nothing wrong with the quality of the food at Barcelona in Middlesex St. I was pleasantly surprised in fact. Service was patchy – the place was virtually empty but the one (quite charming) Spanish waiter struggled to keep up. The atmosphere was a bit soulless but it's probably a bit more lively in the evening.
If anything the menu was a bit too long. I think they could do with providing a few sample menus (like Chinese restaurants) which would help move things along.
Anyway, the food arrived quickly once ordered and was very tasty. Particularly good were the deep fried prawns, the meatballs and patatas bravas. The cured hams were lovely and the cheese selection was excellent and very tasty. As usual with Tapas we ended up ordering a bit too much (could have done without the Paella, which was a bit tasteless) but it wasn't bad value for the quality and quantity of the food. The Rioja was good too.
