This summer has been more Baltic than Balearic.
Happily, today’s Big Deal with Barca Tapas and Cava Bar is the perfect way to enjoy some authentic Spanish paella and genuine Spanish hospitality – even if the sunshine remains stubbornly Scottish.
Now celebrating ten successful years, Barca Tapas and Cava Bar has long welcomed guests to its sophisticated dining room in the vibrant Princes Square on Buchanan Street.
Dine on the terrace
As well as a modernist, Spanish-inspired interior, Barca Tapas has terrace seating on the second floor of Princes Square.
This means that you can do as the Spanish do and eat on the terrace without fear of the Scottish weather causing frostbite.
Delivering some Catalan sunshine to Glasgow city centre, this Big Deal is for two people to share an authentic paella.
To accompany the food at Barca Tapas, guests have the choice of a bottle of house red or white wine or a litre of sangria, made with licor 43, Spanish brandy, orange and cranberry juices and red wine.
Choice of paella
Barca Tapas uses the freshest ingredients and authentic Spanish rice from the Delta del Ebro to make its range of paellas.
Diners can choose from the following:
Paella de pescado – king prawns, tiger prawns, calamari and mussels
Paella de carne – chicken, beef, pork and chorizo
Paella de Valencia – king prawns, calamari, mussels, chicken, chorizo and beef
Paella de verduras – padron peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, squash and spinach
Arros negre – the house special translates as black rice. A traditional Valencian and Catalan paella-style dish with baby squid, squid ink and mussels
All the paellas are made to order and take around 45 minutes to prepare. They are worth the wait.
For ten years, Barca has been winning fans of Spanish food and, at the time of writing, more than 700 customers have rated Barca a tasty 4.1/5 on the 5pm website.
These recent reviews were typical:
‘Excellent. Superb food, service and atmosphere – one of my favourite places!’ Rating 5/5

Authentic paella to share accompanied by sangria or a bottle of house wine – today’s Big Deal with Barca Tapas and Cava Bar offers a taste of Spain without having to remember where you put your passport.
