We had not eaten in Medicine Hat, but found ourselves there recently and wanted to support a local, non-chain, restaurant. We chose this tapas place because we like tapas and wanted a glass of wine after a few stressful days. It was 1/2 price Wednesday so that was a nice surprise and the... read more

love going there for live music, nice mellow guitar or a bit of bluesy singing...great place to relax, good food, nice wine selection. Great tapas selection, I personally love the stuffed dates. Owners are always there and pleasant to talk to. Classy all around.

Went there today with a group of friends, 17, each ordering something a little different and we all were happy with our choices. The food was ordered table by table and came out quickly there after. The owner chefs were very friendly and appreciative of the clientèle. Will return again for something different next time.

We were caught in a rainstorm and took shelter in the restaurant. We were greeted in a very friendly way and were immediately taken with the small restaurants ambiance and decided to order some wine and a desert/snack. Wine list was small but good and the two deserts were made in house and both were exceptionally good. Sorry we could... More

The service is always awful. It took 15 minutes to even be acknowledged, another 10 minutes after that to get a drink..and there were only 4 other people in the restaurant. I find the girl who serves us to be condensing and borderline rude. I don't recommend this place at all.

The food was very good but not great we had the chicken which was reasonably tasty but in reality was a chicken breast covered in canned tomatoes and some pan fried peppers with feta on top fairly straight forward for 24 dollars (Thai orchid does high quality...

We visited on a Thursday, and the restaurant had a live musician playing soft music. The setting was very cozy and felt private. The food was excellent and we were served by one of the co-owners which made the experience even more intimate. Together with the live music, the great wine and food, and the prompt service it was an... More

Went with a group of adults, really enjoyed the intimate nature and staff was very pleasant. One couple had tapas, which was good but not wow, and on price point did seem a bit expensive when portions appeared. $14 on average but the portions were quite tiny.( I know it is Tapas, but all the same they were small on...

I met a friend for lunch at Twist as I'd heard so many good things about this restaurant. The decor is comfortable and modern. The tables are spaced well enough that you feel like you can easily have a conversation without intrusion. I found the wait staff to be very prompt, attentive and pleasant. My friend had the soup special... More
