Great after work Tapas!

One of the only Spanish places that's got it right! Unpretentious cheap and it delivers what you'd expect from a tapas place. Small bites that you can easily wash down with some delicious beer! Don't miss it next time you don't feel like going back home after a long day at the office!

This is a nice casual tapas bar that is great to go to with a couple of friends. Food is good and the staff is nice and friendly. It's a small place so it's not overwhelming and it could be great if you want some private time while on a date as well.

This small, spanish restaurant in the heart of Soho Hong Kong was a true delight. The staff was extremely friendly, the food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect. We ordered the fried pork belly which was cooked well and really tasty. I have to say, after a long day walking around the busy city, this was just what we... More

Was really impressed with the food here. Only heads-up I would provide is the location is quite small and only has bar seating.

Hola Kyle, thanks for your review! Glad you liked our authentic Spanish tapas. We like to make sure all of our customers can watch their food being prepared, hence the bar seating.

Nice place with DELICIOUS tapas. I mean seriously tasty. Portions could have been slightly bigger (for the price). Service was good and the place had a nice feel. Wines by the glass (well the two we had) were just ok, and I'd like to see better serviettes than just cheap and cheerful Chinese takeaway style/quality. But overall, I can recommend

Came here on a thursday night and booked in advance as its a busy little place. You sit up at the bar to eat and can see all the food being cooked, lovely atmosphere and very good friendly staff. Food was really nice and full of flavour. Good choice in an expensive city to eat in.

I love this little tapas bar in Hong Kong, the food is first class and the service also great. There is lots to choose from and there are specials every day plus they have a very reasonable lunch time menu that gives you a soup and 2 tapas and a desert. Highly recommend you try this.

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.

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

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.

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.
