After spending a few years in Spain I enjoy the tapa culture, this is a decent example of that. We tested a few things and I would say the taste was quite authentic. It was a fun lunch for us

It's very rare I give an excellent review, but this place truly deserves it. It's quaint, charming, rustic and more. They have an outback patio which were able to enjoy in the most beautiful weather. I started with a sweet red wine flight, which was divine and my husband and I ordered an assortment of tapas which were all delicious.... More

Wonderful tapas menu and delicious , authentic Spanish cuisine with an original twist. This is the real deal! The staff is warm, knowledgable and attentive without being overbearing. This is our first visit but we will definitely be back. April is a superb waitress and very friendly. The rest of the staff is great, too. We've been to tapas restaurants... More

Great appetizers and their Sangria is to die for. Small cozy atmosphere and great service with the OCC mentality...the west side is the best side!

Loved the food and the super polite staff. Just a short lunch visit but well worth a second visit with friends for more food and the nice drink options.

I eat out once per week and TAPAteria is where I chose most times. Small portions, locally sourced ingredients and gluten free. Plus, they have amazing sangrias and gelato!

Our group of four went for a late lunch. We had lots of plates, including many vegetarian. Everyone was full and happy. Excellent Bloody Marys as well. Will definitely return.

This is where we go for "real" tapas. This is a lovely small eatery with great wine, sangrias, and tapas. They have lots of options for vegetarians and those needing gluten free meals. Their charcuterie makes a great snack when shopping this historic district of Old Colorado City, on the edge of Colorado Springs. The space has lots of character... More

The vegetarian tapas are terrific. Get the Tortilla Espanola. Gelato for dessert also very good. Nice atmosphere.

Went to celebrate a friends' day, and we had a lot of fun, and all the food was a culinary adventure, but wow, the service was ridiculously awful. To start with, she seemed completely unprepared, had no idea what the specials were, didn't know what drinks were offered. (It was 6:30 in the evening, not exactly opening.) Group got both... More
