welcome to baresca tapas family

we are a family of tapas restaurants inspired by our love for the beautiful flavours and free form spirit of Spanish cuisine


this amazing cuisine, discovered whilst we ran for shelter from heavy rain in Barcelona, has been our speciality for nearly a decade 


we took cover in a small, unassuming tapas bar on the edge of the Boqueria market that, little did we know, would change our lives forever 


with ingredients fresh from the market and a vibrancy that burst with energy; family bonds were strengthened and seeds of an idea started to be sewn


our eyes were opened to an incredible form of dining that bucked the predictable order or courses, removed the barriers of large plates and stuffy restaurants and shifted the focus to a more complete experience: one where great food, great company and great atmosphere were equals


every tapas feast is a one-of-a-kind experience; and we started to think how we could bring this back home 


to do so, we obsessed over every tiny detail from individual menu items and our handmade sangria, to the calendar of live music and award-winning restaurant design 


our hard work started paying off in 2010 with the opening of escabeche - and five years later, baresca brought Barcelona to Byard Lane in Nottingham city centre


our heart and soul has been put into every restaurant, and we hope you get to experience what we fell in love with on that one stormy day in Spain
