I've been visiting Tapas since 2012 and my fiance and I keep going back for more because of the amazing food. I love the idea of having lots of little dishes to share and eat from.

All I can say is average. So so average. The service, average... the food, average... the decor, average. No complaints, but no compliments either.

i have now been the second time and i must say the best sangria in town, the food is good but not very spanish, the gambas need to be of better quality, charge a little extra, but i will go back, the atmosphere need to improve and tv is not needed to be on all the time

Very amateurish and the food was poor. Limited range of wine by the glass. Not much atmosphere. A great idea with bad execution!
