We went here with a voucher. The staff were fabulous & helped us with the menu when we decided to have some starters while we were waiting on our paella. It has a lovely ambience & we were able to relax and really enjoy the experience. The food was delicious & the staff were great. We can't wait to return.

We booked this as a surprise for our friend's birthday and we weren't disappointed. We got to choose 3 cocktails to learn to make. It was great because we all got to make them together. Other cocktail making classes I have went to have involved everyone watching as one person makes it. Johnny taught us. He was very friendly, chatty... More

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted. Several tables were reserved, but we got to choose which one we wanted. Staff were really friendly and efficient. My friend and I visited with the voucher deal which entitled us to any paella to share along with wine. We had the Valencia paella which was beautiful. They do not hold back on portions.... More

Went for paella meal on Saturday evening. Ordered paella valencia... it was nice however chicken was dry and chorizo not the best. I would return however perhaps not order the Valencia paella again.

Princes Square looks nothing from main Buchanan Street but worth a visit. Very good eating and shopping (mostly for the ladies). We chose Barca for tapas and weren't disappointed. Great dishes and very friendly and attentive waitress

So when ordering soup on lunch menu it comes with two very small pieces of bread. I asked for more but the waitress said I would have to order the bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil (extra £.3.95), She would not budge to bring more bread for my soup. The first I have ever experienced this in any restaurant... More

Disappointed in visiting Barca for drinks. Comfortable seats which had been there previously have gone. Staff took an age to acknowledge our arrival and had to go myself to bar for service. Area in which we reluctantly had to stand was compromised several times with staff having to squeeze by! All in all dissapointed and wished we had chosen a... More
