Visited La Tapa Guapa one Friday evening with my wife. We were greeted by what looked like the manager, friendly and immediately shown to a table. The dining section is alongside the bar of the pub/hotel and drinks are purchased at the bar. We asked for a joint bar and food tab, which was accepted without any problem, leaving the... More

I had dinner at La Tapa Guapa in the Sir John Young Hotel on 26 March 2013. I had not been there since the late 1980s when it was always busy with authentic Spanish food and I had memories of a great Spanish restaurant. Different owners now and very different food.

I dropped into La Tapa Guapa at the Sir John Young Hotel at the recommendation of a friend. First impressions, apart from one Spanish waiter the atmosphere was hardly that of a Spanish canteen as you'd think; it's tucked away at one end of an Aussie pub. Food was a little bland for my liking, come to think of it... More

If you want a cosy and popular pub with great tapas try this place. I hadn't been here for ages, like 10+ years and my memory didn't let me down. The service was attentive and the drinks at pub prices. Sardines were a delight and the food came very quickly. Obviously a popular after work and people feeding before a... More

Love the tapas here. It's cheap and friendly. We always get a table without having to book as food turnaround is quick. It's not a delux restaurant but is excellent value for money and great for a quick meal.
