Tapas Time as Southampton's Latest Dining Experience Opens.
Delicious Dining has opened the doors to its latest restaurant, Tapas Barcelona in the heart of Southampton this week.
Located in the newly developed Cultural Quarter the uniquely styled restaurant offers customers an authentic Spanish dining experience in the heart of the city.
Set over two levels, the restaurant comprises a large downstairs bar, dining area with an open kitchen and paella kitchen along with an upstairs Mezzanine lounge bar.
With influences from Spanish-speaking kitchens from around the world, the menu features many favourites including Iberico ham croquetas, patatas bravas and mouthwatering paella along with a wide range of vegetarian and gluten free options.
Overlooking Guildhall Square and flanked by larger national chains Tapas Barcelona is part of the independently owned Delicious Dining group, based in Southampton.
The 5,000sqft venue features a traditional design with a twist. Four large back lit wall hangings and lanterns create a welcoming space in the main area with a sweeping wrought-iron staircase to the first floor lounge bar. Downstairs the open kitchen allows diners to experience the energy of a busy restaurant while the back bar provides a more intimate area as diners are transported to the streets of Barcelona as they dine at the foot of Gaudi's famous Casa Batllo with its skull and bones balconies.
CEO Steve Hughes who has headed up the £1million investment said, “We wanted to create more than just a tapas bar, we want our diners to have a Spanish dining experience on all levels from the authentic menu to the surroundings. It has been a big project and we have made sure there is something for everyone no matter what time of day.”
