Second trip just as good as the first

Had my second visit to Tapeo this week - first time was dinner, this time set lunch. Soup, 2 tapas and desert for $118+ - you can't go wrong.

Hi HKDave, hola from Tapeo! Wow, thank you so much for paying us a visit twice in a short span of time. We do get good reviews on our lunch deal, which is great value for this part of town. Glad you liked our gambas, gazpacho, chorizo and lamb! Those churros... we still drool whenever we see them every day.... More

This was my second visit to Tapeo and it was as good as the first. Despite being on my own this time I felt perfectly at ease in the buzzy atmosphere. The tapas are perfectly prepared and cooked and the sherry is served chilled, as it should be. The Sangria is excellent and the Spanish beer and wine selection complements... More

Ola mrsejf! Thanks for coming to Tapeo (twice!) and writing about your experience. Our bar seating is great for small groups or solitary diners, as it lets you observe the chef and interact with our wait staff perfectly. We're very happy that you thought the tapas was "perfectly prepared" and that the sherry was served chilled. We look forward to... More

A favourite when we come to Hong Kong. The service is always very friendly, the menu has plenty of variety & it is always of great quality. Hard to choose what my favourite dish is on the menu, but tonight I had to go back again for the lamb & the stuffed peppers.

Went here for an early dinner on a Saturday night. Tapeo is a tapas bar rather than a restaurant - ie there are no tables - everyone sits at the bar, in front of the open kitchen. The great thing about this is the chef can see when you are ready for your next dish and cook it for you... More

Hi mc852, hola from Tapeo! Thank you for visiting Hong Kong's favourite tapas bar and for taking the time to write about your experience. We made sure that all our diners would sit around the bar rather than at tables to allow for maximum interaction with the chef. It's great to hear that he was on top of the ball... More

We've been to a few different branches of Tapeo around Hong Kong and the meals have always been consistently good. A mixture of traditional Spanish dishes and some other traditional with a modern twist never fails to please. Excellent quality ingredients and beautiful execution, great fast friendly service. Well recommended.

Great little find! Intimate bar setting (think sushi bar) with a delicious range of tapas. Brought me right back to Barcelona. Will visit again!

This is my favorite place to eat in HK, and I always try to come here when I'm in town. The atmosphere is very authentic -- a cozy tapas bar. The menu is great, with a wide range of classic tapas and some very imaginative new ones. The pan con tomate is particularly good! Nice wine list, friendly service and... More

We were impressed with the imaginative range which could not be faulted. The service was superb - not in one's face - just there when required. The only drawback for us, and this is probably an age thing, was that one is sitting cheek by jowl. This is personal. I'm sure that 'younger things' would give Tapeo 5 stars. Just... More

My favorite go to pace for comfort tapas in Hong Kong. Food never disappoints. Fair selection of wine. Great staff and fun ambience. Highly recommend all dishes.

Loved it - good menu and well executed food. A bit close to the person next to you but actually that makes it quite authentic to Madrid style. No complaints

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
