la barra's cava is great! highly recommended their tapas is also very good - the combo platter are a better option than one by one selections the dishes are small portions so the 7 plate selection is easily shared by 2 ppl i'm a repeat customer!

If this is your first time going to a tapas bar, tell the manager to give you his best selection... You won't be disappointed!

La barra is always worth a visit. Just for drinks or even to enjoy a dinner. Right next to the students party and nightlife quarter it is a good start in the evening. The tapas are great and the Cava (Spanish sparkling wine) is supreme. Bottle prices for the Cava are a fantastic deal.

We held our son's birthday 18th birthday party here and it was fantastic. The room downstairs was ideal for 24 18 year olds to party in. Tapas were great, Service very, very good. A Group of us ate in the restaurant (not wanting to crash an 18 year old's Party!) All of the Tapas we ate were tasty, authentic and... More

We had the mix of 5 tapas (+ surprise) for two and enjoyed every one especially the calamari, seafood salad and the surprise manchego, we were not stuffed to the top but pleasantly full. Managed to squeeze us in fairly quickly at a busy time, quick service until all the food was delivered and then very chill, which was fine... More

We were in the mood for tapas and were looking for someting nearby. We ended up at La Barra and we didn't regret going there. The atmosphere was nice, eventhough we didn't like the chairs much. But I guess that's a matter of personal preference. The service was good and helpful. We chose the Tapas Menu II (for two people).... More

Visited with two friends. We had 14 tapas dishes and a bottle of the specially imported Spanish rosé, which was recommended by the ever helpful waiter. The food was great and arrived in super quick time. The service was also brilliant and we were given 3 free shots of sambuca as we left! Would definitely recommend.

This restaurant had great wine and food, unfortunately stopped serving food mid week around 10 ish without telling us. Alos only took cash, so running off the the bank office was needed!

Awesome place. Seems to specialise in Rioja which is cool.. We tried a few bottles of that 😂😂 Ridiculously good value, we had a bottle of wine and 7 tapas dishes + breads and water for 50 euro on the nose. The quality was great too, especially with the Datiles and the Albondingas. I could literally eat that again right... More
