Went to Spain, had a great time and have been missing it ever since. Once I heard about La Barraca Tapas Bar & Café, I suspected a visit would be great opportunity to hopefully experience what I have been missing. From the outside of the restaurant to the inside decor, you know their goal is to make you feel as if you're in Spain. You are even greeted in Spanish. As soon as you're seated you are offered wine or sangria. I choose sangria and although it was good, I have had better. Be careful when ordering water, because they will bring you a bottle of mineral water and charge you $5. Their complimentary bread was delicious, but only because their garlic butter amazing. The tapas we ate were great, my favorite being the Fillet Mignon Kabob with Potatoes. The meat was tender, sauce mouthwatering and potatoes an added bonus. We also ordered Jamón Serrano (Spanish cured ham imported from Spain) because that was a favorite when we were in Spain and the Churrasco De Carne Con Mojo Picon (skirt steak with "mojo" from the canary islands). Both were also really good. My only disappointment was that I didn't try more, but I have the next visit for that. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8 & 10pm they put on a Flamenco Show. The flamenco show was entertaining, but having experience an authentic show in Spain, it just was not the same, but it was still a great show. Note that if you dine at the restaurant during those times, they will tack on $5 per person to your bill for the show. Other than the unexpected charged for the show and the water, everything was reasonable prices. La Barraca Tapas Bar & Café is a fun place that makes you feel like you're in Spain. They offer a wide variety of Spanish tapas, great wines, and an excellent live Flamenco show. And since I am unable to visit Spain all the time, La Barraca will be my alternative when I am missing it.

We got there Saturday night, the lady in the front is everywhere but in the front, she sees me and said, "you guys don't have a reservation" I said no, she turned around and started her tour for the whole restaurant, the people behind us have a reservation for 4 and are 5 just like us, they couldn't get in because they were 5 and the reservation was for 4. They sat us at a table from which we supposedly could see the flamenco show, by the way they charge extra $5 per person on show time, we sat at the table for almost 30 minutes with out any attention at all, when finally a waitress came and gave us the menus and ran away, she came 15 mins later and took the order, I asked her for bread and butter since we had a hungry child, and all of us were hungry too, 15 mins later no bread and butter, I asked every waiter and waitress for it, until 2 of them brought it at the same time, the child's soda was disappointing, and took 20 minutes to replace it, 20 minutes later they serve 2 of the dishes, non of them were the child's, 15 minutes later I call the waiter and made a claim for the lack of attention, he said he will personally take care of us, the sodas at the table were empty and took another 10 minutes to get them refilled, finally the other 2 dishes came within 20 minutes difference each, they dimmed the lights and was hard to see what you were eating, by the time they brought my dish, my friends were already done and bored, another 20 minutes after they brought the check and to pick up the payment another 15. We are clear in this. We won't be back! shame on you, this is totally unacceptable.

La Barraca is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is authentic, great quality and taste, love the flamenco performances and my friends and family always have a blast. I lived in Spain for many years and this is as close as it could get. the price is just right and there is NO cover charge for the amazing show!

This place has gone downhill. Food is bland. The servers need to be trained. Where have the 2 owners Robert and Manuel gone?
