Croque monsieur paninis, Barca Club sandwiches, and the Barca’s signature Italian burgers keep hunger at bay from 11am until the late afternoon, all washed down with an enviable list of international wine, beer, and cider with, naturally, a good number of Mediterranean vintages and brews on hand. Come the evening, this Mediterranean restaurant in Ilkley’s centre, along Brook Street, amplifies its relaxed trattoria vibe: chilli and garlic king prawns with chorizo and fresh bread for dipping, indulgent platters of antipasto misto, and Spanish pork and chorizo meatballs in a tomato sauce are just some of the tapas-style starters one can sample. There are delicious mains aplenty here, but its perhaps Barca’s paella that has foodies across West Yorkshire talking. Combining chicken, chorizo and seafood, it’s a surefire winner next time you reserve a table.
