SquareMeal Review of
Barcelona Tapas Bar y Restaurante
Located on the southern stretch of Lordship Lane, this large, colourful restaurant has to work hard to pull in customers. Decorwise, you’ll find a huge, Gaudí-inspired mosaic lizard & bright
walls in the vast conservatory dining room. The menu covers everything from charcuterie & cheese platters to classic tapas such as meatballs, chorizo & croquetas. For something more
unusual, try the fideuà: a Catalan speciality similar to paella, but made with short noodles instead of rice. Staff at this branch of the popular chain (there are three more) could do with some
polish, if it is to fall into line with the rest of its City counterparts.
WINE LIST: Despite its name, the range here encompasses wines from all over Spain. Detailed descriptions try to ensure customers know what they are getting, although few vintages are listed.
If you fancy an aperitif, there is an excellent range of sherries and cavas. Finish with a Moscatel from Malaga. BEST BUY WHITE 2008 Adega Castrocelta, Rías Baixas, Spain, £28.95. BEST
BUY RED Ultreia, Bierzo, Spain, £29.95.
