Oted most Romantic Restaurant in the Rockies, we are tucked off Main Street Canmore in a charming character house. Tapas offers the lively fusion of Spanish and Old World flavours created by our kitchen team. We have designed a menu of specialty dishes that are prepared to order from the freshest ingredients available. All stocks, sauces and desserts are made by our Chef Dan Purvis in house. Our menu offers gluten free and vegetarian options. Share several plates amongst friends in the intimate dining room with Spanish style murals and high back leather chairs. We also have an eclectic attic with slanted ceilings and low windows which is great for small parties. Don't forget to visit us in the summer where you can enjoy tapas on our Mediterranean- style deck with lovely al fresco ambiance. And most importantly, be sure to try our house made Sangria (white or red) or choose a lovely Spanish Cava or wine from our Wine Menu. Want to bring your own wine, we offer a $20 corkage fee as well.

Huge surprise!

This little restaurant in Camore is a gastronomical delight. Everything we chose was a taste buds dream. Lovely venue and outstanding service. This was not our first visit and one often wonders if the food will live up to your expectations. It did. FYI, the Sangria is delicious.

when you are european you should not go there, because tapas are normally much cheaper in europe, but the food comes pretty close to spanish tapas.

Thank you for dining at Tapas and for giving us your feedback. It should be noted that our Tapas are generally two to three times the size of a European Tapas or Spanish Tapas and the majority of hot tapas meat and seafood items have approximately six ounces of protein. Kindest regards, James Kendal GM More

We had a quick dinner at this restaurant. The variety of dishes was excellent and every one was delicious. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Only complaint was that we were too full to have dessert!

Nice little tapas bistro. The food we had was well presented, tasted well and was served by a pleasant lady . We had the sharing platter which would have been enough for us but we also ordered 2 more Tapas and bottle of wine.

A real hidden Spanish gem in Canmore. Authentic Spanish cuisine with elegant service. Just like you were in Barcelona.

This place took me back to Spain and eating tapas and drinking a glass of wine. The food was excellent and the wait staff were attentive without making us feel rushed. Several times we were encouraged to sit and take our time and enjoy the evening which is itself a rare treat. I would recommend making a reservation since this... More

We have visited Tapas a number of times in groups and just couples. We have always had a fantastic meal, with great service. Last night we had the seranno ham, beet ravioli, portobello mushroom, and chill gambas, followed by the creme brulee. Outstanding! The red wine special on Wednesday nights was excellent. We will be back.

Exceptional Spanish fare designed to share. Exactly the flavours I remember from travelling through Spain, delivered by knowledgeable and friendly staff. A "must eat" in Canmore.

The first time we went to Tapas last year, we sat in their patio on a beautiful summer day. We had a great time although the night was a bit pricey. We went again this year, but the patio was not yet open (understandable) so we sat inside. It's cute with old fashion style decor which created a nice and... More

Thank you for your response and review of Tapas. We are sad to hear that you did not enjoy your experience and hopefully we will see you back in the future. Typically Tapas are "small portions" or appetizer size items and we try to pace items at approximately ten to fifteen minutes per dish so that you are not rushed.... More
