We don’t have any Barcelona-style restaurants in San Francisco, so BCN Taste & Tradition was at the top of our dining list for Houston. It lived up to our high expectations. We both had the bacalao (salt cured Spanish cod) for our mains, mainly because we’d never had it before. It was delicious

The restaurant is in a Spanish-style house in Montrose, a residential neighborhood. The attractive interior is filled with major works of Spanish art and a buzz of excitement. It’s a dressy restaurant; most of the diners looked spiffy.

I really enjoyed this beautiful little restaurant, I love how it’s tucked away but when you walk in it has this wonderful ambiance.
The food was amazing, I love the Vegan menu options (for my husband) and the staff were really attentive.

Tough to get a reservation so with 1 week lead time had to eat at 5pm for a table in the dining room...which was fine by us. Alternatively, there is a very nice outdoor patio; could also eat at the bar which didn't look very comfortable.

Very nice ambience and service was excellent; good date/romantic place; noise level - quiet. Food was very good but a bit "fussy"; any time I see "foam" as part of description of dishes my eyes roll - pretty but adds nothing in my opinion.

They tout their extensive selection of gins. We had gin & tonics which were good but not extraordinary. Wine by the glass was good and a generous pour - red wine temperature was perfect.

Despite the excellent service, when we made reservation on line we were asked if it was a special occasion - we answered yes - a birthday. When we checked in, we confirmed with hostess that we had a birthday guest. When our waiter told us that the next day was 8th anniversary of their opening we said it was also my wife's birthday. The birthday "status" made no difference - a couple of tables near ours seemed to get some special dessert with a little candle.......not us. Why did they bother to ask? We didn't let this minor annoyance spoil an otherwise lovely dining experience.

Good food but I was a little disappointed. We had octopus and potato as appetizers. Both were good and the potatoes were covered for aioli. For main dishes we had Menorca lobster, a vegetarian medley and salmon. No one complained but none of us raved either. We have eaten in many restaurants in Spain that were better and certainly cheaper. The staff is very attentive. The gin and tonics were judged as excellent with very nice presentation.

Everything in this place is amazing. Since the service to the main dishes and cocktails.
It was full when we went there even during the week, so you need to do a reservation.
It is an expensive place but it deserves it.
All the ingredients and dishes are completely from Spain.
Really good option if you are visiting Houston.
