On Saturday night, we went out to dinner with my mom before she headed back home to Fort Wayne.  Because she was the guest of honor, we decided to let her pick our place to dine.

She did a great job by selecting Barcelona Tapas.

barcelona tapas 1Barcelona Tapas is a laid back restaurant that features Spanish-style small plate dishes that are absolutely delicious.  The restaurant was just buzzing with people when we arrived, which put us all in fun spirits to begin with!

barcelona tapas 3When eating at this restaurant, it is best to coordinate what you are going to order with the other people that you are with so that you can share and sample a little bit of everything.  That’s what the small plates are for!  If you are an indecisive person, this would be the perfect restaurant for you because they recommend ordering around 2 small plate dishes per person.

To make sure that we were able to sample the most dishes, our group decided to each pick two small plates to order with no double ordering.

Another item we recommend ordering off the menu is the sangria.  We ordered a pitcher to share and thoroughly enjoyed every last drop!

I always forget how filling the tapas are and often wonder if we will need to order more.  Trust me, the tapas are filling and you will not need to worry about not feeling full by the end of the meal!

Great dinner choice, Mom!
