Truly great, little place. They may have only about 25 seats at their bar. Each of which is first row to watch the kitchen staff and chefs prepare the quite wonderful food. They serve a nice range of hot tapas and matching wines. It's a busy place, it's a loud place but the atmosphere is wonderful, passionate and very enjoyable.... More

First trial of this Spanish Tapas bar gives me a very impressive memory of its Tapas. We book the seat and is filling up while we are having the meal. It is situated in Soho area. The whole menu is divided into 6 categories: Para Picar, Cold meats, Seafood, Meat, Tortilla, Vegetables and Salads. There is an early set menu... More

Food is bad except the classic tortilla which is quite good. It is super expensive And the service is not even nice. I would not recommend it.

Small and cosy with loads of atmosphere, this bistro is a must for Spanish tapas. A great variety that is served efficiently by attentive staff and in portions that are ample but more-ish. Sitting around the counter, one can indulge in the international vibe, buzzing culinary preparations or discuss global destinations with the well travelled staff. A lovely and ample... More

First of all - it is a bar. There are perhaps 15-20 bar stools and that's it. You can see how you food gets prepared, have a chat with a person next to you and a staff and enjoy a glass or two of wine. Tapeo team has managed to recreate the atmosphere of European tapas bar with its easiness... More

On our last visit to Hong Kong last October, we were disappointed with our Tapeo experience. But they are back on track and today's food was fantastic- morcilla (black pudding) and prawns was rich and ver tasty and the scallops with sticky pork was just as good. If you like grazing, drop by and enjoy a Spanish wine with your... More

When my husband and I first came here, we were blown away by the quality ingredients, buzzy-atmosphere and knowledgeable staff... we have been back a few times too... so last week when we popped in, we were left incredibly disappointed! The produce was significantly lower quality to begin with: over-ripe veggies, fatty end-cuts of meat... and overcooked to lose the... More

In the heart of Hong Kong (near to Lang Kwai Fong) lies a restaurant with high bar type seats around the kitchen. You watch the chefs as they cook. We got to chat to the South African born, Australian Chef who recommended the delicious food and the wine and even the dessert. I am not a fan of seafood so... More
