Can't even describe what they served us. The Paella (the smallest portion I have ever seen) had a weird color, weird taste, watery... First time in my life I sent a dish back saying I can't eat this ! The tapas were also difficult to eat, burnt and weird combinations. Nothing spanish in these dishes and nothing good !

My husband and I had dinner at El Tapeo last night. We had never been there before but we were pleasantly surprised. The room (downstairs) was small and cozy and the food was very good, especially the paella and the pimientos de padron. It was a bit expesive though - but so are most restaurants in Copenhagen.

The Tapas Menu was delightful. Atmosphere cosy and relaxed. Waiters very attentive. And good value for money.

I'm a Spanish person visiting Copenhagen and I decided to try Spanish tapas in Denmark for the fun of it. Never again! We order croquetas - only 5 small ones for 65kr. They had a really strange, strong and cheesy flavour (nothing to do with actual Spanish croquetas) but the worst is -- they were so obviously NOT handmade! From... More

Unfortunately I can't rate their food, because after we ordered, we waited over one hour, and when the food hasn't arrived yet, we desided to leave!

My family went to this restaurant because it was convenient to our apartment downtown. It was a nice find. The staff was attentive and helpful and the food was high quality and tasty. Prices were reasonable, or at least as reasonable as can be expected in Copenhagen. But the best feature of this restaurant is the atmosphere. It was decorated... More

I've been to this place three times in the last couple of years. First time it was very good, but the two next visits were disappointing. The hot food is lukewarm, the wine selection is poor and the service is bad.

Here in Copenhagen for the first time and following an early business meeting had a lot of time to kill before my flight home. Found this place by accident walking around and although at first glance it looked closed the staff have been most welcoming and very friendly. The wine (house) is good house fair and the tapas (wine food)... More
