Tapas - good presentation and dining view

We enjoyed early evening tapas and the presentation was beautiful with curled veggies gracing the plate. The taste was yummy and hit the bill for an early evening treat. We enjoyed a waterfront table but there was not much activity at that time in the bay.

We booked a table for 8.00pm. While it didn't seem necessary, it did mean that we had a great table on the waterfront, well away from a quite noisy bar. As another reviewer has noted, there's very little activity on the water at night. The two of us shared four tapas dishes and it was enough. If you have a... More

We initially went into the steak house next door, which looked great but was freezing cold due to the air con - they kindly moved us to Tapas on the bay, which is owned by the same people as I understand, and we sat outside in a very nice patio area at the back. The food was really fantastic, service... More

Coming through the courtyard we immediately knew we were in for a treat. Walking into the restaurant we were immediately greeted by the warm and friendly staff and struck by the relaxing and picturesque view. We dashed for a table at the water's edge. we were engaged by a waiter who presented us menus, and assisted us in making some... More

We went twice to tapas on the bay, once for a stop off on an excursion to the friday street party, and then the next day for lunch, it's a great location to eat on the marina and I found the staff to be very friendly and good fun to chat to

Nice stop for lunch. The best tapas were the flatbread with salt fish and the pan with tempanade. We each had a sangria-- that will kick off your vacation! Wow! It was fun. Service was excellent.

My wife and I just happened upon Tapas (which seems to be the norm for many reviewers) while searching for another restaurant. We were "very" timid prior to entering telling ourselves, "Let's check out the menu prices first before we commit to sitting down". Upon entering the restaurant and seeing the AWESOME view off of the deck that showed off... More

Hoping for a nice happy hour on water. The water is awesome- I think we just ordered wrong. The drink were from college. Strong aND sugary. I would order different but menu didn't lead to much.
