Hands down Barraca has one of the best corners in the West Village. The atmosphere was great on a recent Friday night. The meal blew us away. Piquillo peppers, croquettas, the duck confit coca and the Brussels sprouts were spot-on amazing. We shared three paellas for the table and they were packed with flavor and huge -- we couldn't finish everything and took the rest to go. Totally recommended.

I love this place, I work a few blocks and has become one of my favorite restaurants. Some days I'll have a glass of wine and tapas after work. Others go to dinner, I like the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, the service is nearby and the food delicious, I dream of the croquettes and broken eggs. The sangrias and cocktails are another strong point. Barraca have 6 different sangrias and I think 6 cocktails. I went to eat brunch once and it seemed very good. Definitely a good site always meets my needs.

We ate so many things on the menu. I loved the food and atmosphere. Make are to try the stuffed peppers with oxtail and the mushrooms with sausage was great too. I can't wait to go back.

The mushrooms were so salty they were inedible. The brussel sprouts were tasty to start, but after eating 1/2 of the plate the level of saltiness started to mount and soon turned into overkill. The oxtain peppers were dredged in salt and oil. The space is impressive, but the restaurant was on the cold side. I would not return because the restaurant is not a value (its appropriately priced) and the food is not good (though not bad either). I ordered 4 tapas (3 of which were veggie) and no alcohol and spent $38 sum total including tax and tip. A meal at this restaurant is not worth $40 of your money. Trust me.

Just amazing. great tapas in a beautiful setting. I live not too far from Barraca and i have visited 4 times in the last 2 weeks! Relaxed and laid back with a serious sangria list (and delicious cocktails!). I am sure Barraca wont be a hidden gem too much longer. Great job you guys!

For a recently open restaurant, that has been pretty busy and talked about from the get go. This place is terrific. Awesome decor, sort of feels a little western chic, the designer did a great job creating an elegant feeling space while using lots of wood/ raw elements. The cocktail list is very interesting and unique, there is a a huge list of sangrias (who knew sangria was so complex - not me) the one I had was delicious. The menu was great. Tried a few of the tapas dishes which were good, and then paella. Its amazing that even though each person in the party has to get a paella they let you pick more than one, which are served in beautiful cast iron pans. Great presentation all around. Overall, I did not feel like I was eating at a restaurant that had only been open for a few weeks, but one that had been there for years. Owners and management are amazing, which makes all the difference. Can't wait to see what they have in store for the space next door..Best of luck!!

Anxiously awaited opening of this place where Arte Pasta was for years. The space is gorgeous and welcoming despite the chilly hostess. The food however leaves much to be desired. Bland and sometimes just plain disappointing. We had eight different dishes. I've traveled to Spain and have never had cold mushy pan con tomate. Their version of patatas bravas was bland and like diner home fries; again like nothing I ever had in Spain. Enjoyed the tortilla Espanola but it was more like a shredded potato cake. I could go on but I'm afraid we won't be back.
