Great Tapas and snacks

I really enjoy their pulled pork tacos. Chewy and tangy. The black bean dip is also good, and both are reasonably priced. Good salads too. It is a nice high-ceiling space in an old building. Can be quiet for lunch but busy at night when they have music.

Nice change from the seafood bars...good tapas, a good selection and well prepared. It's a bar feel more than a restaurant but overall nice. Not too expensive..mix of locals and tourists.

Went here earlier this month to celebrate my birthday. Food was good, place was cute, but our waitress really took away from the experience. I can't remember her name (did she even introduce herself?), but she actually argued with me about bringing us a dessert menu. My little sister wanted to read the descriptions. She kept saying 'well, I'm telling... More

Great breakfast our first morning on St. George Island. We walked around Apalachicola and found this tiny gem for breakfast. Very reasonably priced as well! The blueberry pancakes were awesome as was the breakfast wrap.

Went in on Saturday night for tapas and music. Enjoyed the music and the tapas. The only week point was the southwestern hummus. Not bad, but certainly not southwestern-more Asian. Has a great taste of sesame to it, but not spicy or prepared as I would have expected Southwestern hummus to be (I live in he Southwest). The potatoes brava... More

This seemed to be the only place we could find with any kind of night life that stayed open late (12AM). They had trivia one night, an acoustic guy another night and a DJ the 3rd night. Food was good and the bartender was friendly.

Tamara's Tapas Bar is a must visit if you are in Apalachicola and anywhere near downtown main street. The are right next door to Tamara's and the same kitchen and wait staff work both sides. The food is outstanding as is the atmosphere and many of the locals hang out there so you can learn a lot about the area.

It was a nice lunch. Nothing fancy, but a very warm atmosphere. The food was great and not too expensive also not too touristy either. Enjoy

We eat at Tamara's every time we go to Apalachicola. The pecan encrusted fish is amazing and consistently good. We really appreciated them being open 4th of July weekend, as most of the restaurants in town were closed. If you go on a big holiday it is best to make reservations.
