It was a cool Sunday night when we ate here, so we sat inside and it was nearly empty. But it's a very nice atmosphere, the menu is extensive and has a wide range of authentic Spanish items (even noting which region they come from), and the food was very tasty. We had croquetas (good, not exceptional), stuffed bacon-wrapped dates... More

This is the best tapas restaurant that I've frequented. It is worth a return visit during our stay in Phoenix/Scottsdale. We had trouble finding the restaurant as it does not front Stetson Dr. We had to call the restaurant for directions. It is behind the fountain on Stetson Dr. and you have to climb the stairs behind the fountain to... More

Our driver suggested we try this place even though we never had tapas before. Reservations are recommended but they were able to fit us in (party of 5). The kids were able to choose from a kids tapas menu but we're able to try our items too. We had ham and cheese croquettes, flattened chicken with roasted tomato and garlic,... More

When in Scottsdale Arizona, most people have SouthWestern fare top of mind. Well it's time to break that mindset as Tapas Papa Frita just happens to be an awesome experience. The food quality, the ambiance of the restaurant, and the amazing service resulted in an outstanding evening. Our party of three shared an array of Tapas that were prepared extraordinarily.... More

I arrived in Phoenix with a friend picking me up to head straight to Scottsdale's old town where we found Tapas Papa Frita, sat on the lovely patio, listened to live music and we were served by a delightful man who kept us satisfied with delicious specialty drinks and what seemed to be endless tapas tasting menu items! We probabaly... More

Came into tapas papa frita for lunch and it was fantastic!! Aaron was a great server and the food was fantastic! We had the chefs special which are the top 6 tapas and their classic paella as an entree which were all to die for. That plus the excellent service and great drinks from the bar makes this a must...

Went to this facility during AZ restaurant week. The restaurant was maybe half full. And we waited 50 minutes for our appetizers! This is after I asked for our waiter who forgot to put in the order. We ended talking home the dessert 2 hours later. I blame management, read you customers experiences and reviews. Do they care?

The food is ok but what i really loved is that they have live flamenco show on friday nights. There are also some tables outdoor with candles and a gentle mist ( which is great for the hot Arizona nights) which can be very romantic
