Could be so much better

El Tapeo is located in one of the small streets near Kultorvet. The place has all the ingredients to become a cosy Spanish haven. The interior is quite cosy and Spanish food can be a dream and yet they let you a little bit down. We were there a late afternoon and having walked by many times we... read more

This place has some good and some bad points. The good ones; nice atmosphere, nice wine and some delicious tapas. But the service is very slow and it's expensive for what it offers. Also the tapas were very salty.

Mind you, we ordered a pretty standard combination platter so I can't say anything about the menu besides that, but what we got was very good. The chorizo was especially excellent, and a great atmosphere all around. A little on the expensive side, but not the worst by far.

This little restaurant is tucked away in a small street close to Norreport train/metro station and the Round Tower. We went because it was just down the road from our apartment. What a little find! We had the chef's selection because it seemed to be the best value (food and meals in Copenhagen are generally very expensive and this was... More

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.

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!
