barcelona: wine bar & restaurant

Lately I have been drawn towards restaurants that serve their food tapas style! By doing this you get to try a little of everything without being stuffed at the end of your meal. Since every portion is small, the chef has to try to pack as much flavor into a few bite sized pieces as possible! This means that every dish is rich in flavor, visually appealing, and prepared to perfection! Barcelona Wine Bar & Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia does just that with a Spanish style.

Once seated, my family and I ordered some drinks and enjoyed some fresh bread and olive oil. I admired the atmosphere and the romantic ambience. They had awesome black and white photographs all over the restaurant that added to the rustic, wooden style of the restaurant.

For our first round we ordered a charcuterie board… my absolute favorite! It was amazing because they had the best choices to meat available. These prime cuts of meat were displayed in the bar area and were even hanging from parts of the railing in their open kitchen.

We ordered so many dishes but one of the best was the crispy calamari. I even had a few pieces that were still in their full-bodied form! They were so fresh I swear they were probably swimming in a tank that morning.

The crispy potatoes were amazing as well, so good that we had two orders of those. We also enjoyed the house cured olives, manchego + jamon croquettes, patatas bravas, melon + pea salad, broccoli + feta, and the dry aged rib eye. We were fully satisfied with everything we had!
