Located in the heart of Southampton’s Cultural Quarter – opposite the O2 Guildhall, not far from the newly opened Nuffield Theatre and a short walk from Mayflower Theatre – Tapas Barcelona is the perfect venue for day-trippers and theatre-goers alike. This sociable venue provides an authentic tapas experience with influences from Spanish kitchens. Split across two levels, this uniquely decorated eatery features an open kitchen and hosts regular events, music and a full programme of live sport.
The menus are bursting with flavour and choice – you’ll find all your tapas favourites and a vast array of vegan and gluten-free options too. The restaurant offers small plates, including chorizo, potato and caramelised onion tortilla, crispy squid, sherry-fried chorizo, patatas bravas and stuffed mini peppers; these are perfect for sharing. Diners can also enjoy a fantastic lunchtime offer of two-for-one tapas from Monday to Friday. Big plates are also available, so diners can choose from the likes of burgers, steaks, chilli and prawn dishes, along with a choice of sides. Those with a soft spot for dessert can round off their meal with Spanish favourites of churros and chocolate or crème Catalan, among others. Tapas Barcelona also boasts an impressive drinks selection and offers two-for-one cocktails on weekdays from 3pm until close.
