Barrica is clearly a labour of love, born out of many trips to Spain. When you walk through the door you leave the congested streets of the West End behind you for a taste of Spain. They have managed to create an environment that people can feel relaxed enough to enjoy a comfortable business lunch, a sherry based cocktail with a pinxo straight after work or somewhere to feast yourself on inventive tapas all evening. The wines, sherries and other drinks have been carefully selected to offer a full reflection of Spain’s fantastic diversity. The same can be said for the food menu as the dishes clearly take ingredients and influences from all over the country. Fully deserving of their Michelin Bib Gourmand.
Barrica Tapas Bar is more than just a place to eat – it’s a trip to the south in oh so many ways. The
concept was to create a place that would not feel out of place if it were situated on a busy street in
Barcelona. And that’s why Barrica on Goodge Street feels and looks like the perfect place in the West
End to take a short break and leave the hectic City behind, be it only a short hour or so. Relax and
have a great taste of Spain, great espresso, olives, almonds and jamon with a glass of sherry.
Barrica Tapas Bar is a place where great Mediterranean taste comes alive. The restaurant on Goodge Street spoils you with a host of foods sourced directly from Spain. Kick back and dive in, have a glass of wine by itself with a friend or crossword, as well as somewhere to feast yourself on really good, authentic tapas or enjoy a gin and tonic made with an enthusiasm that all food and drink should be celebrated with. The wines and sherries have been carefully selected to offer a full reflection of Spain’s fantastic diversity. The same goes for the food as Barrica serve tapas dishes with influences from all over the country.
Warm welcome, friendly staff and generally good service. Good choice of both drinks and food. We liked all our choices, particularly the veal cheeks. Quite noisy but a good atmosphere. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the experience.
I visited Barrica on a Friday night and absolutely loved it. The tapas was delicious and well priced, the atmosphere was vibrant and buzzing and the staff were really friendly and attentive. The wine list was also very good and our waiter was only too happy to help to recommend a wine which would suit our tastes. I will be coming here again and would recommend it to anyone.
Great food, drinks and service. I would definitely go back and recommend Barrica The hake (I think it was Hake or another white fish), was particularly nice
