Worth the wait

Usually there is a queue to get a table but it is worth the wait (doesn't take too long though). The tuna fish is amazing and the sweet potato surprising. Staff is incredibly friendly and provide great orientation on the menu, which can be a bit tricky at first sight. Service is really fast... read more

We were recommended Tapas by a few people including the hotel! There is a no reservations policy so it is advisable to get there early to secure a table. We waited about 30 mins but it was certainly worth the wait! The staff were very attentive & service was pretty quick, it needed to be considering the queue of people... More

Great place for a casual and trendy eating. Nicely served by friendly attendants and very diverted menu. Very popular and some wait could be expected.

We had a wonderful dinner in Pipa last week. While we only had two dishes, both were excellent. We tried the salmon with the Thai red curry sauce and the grilled, marinated vegetables. The marinated vegetables were particularly good. We shared a half bottle of wine that was also very good. A great place to have a few tapas, enjoy... More

Tapas is without a doubt the best place to stay for good food in Pipa. The staff in unbelievably kind and helpful and the chefs do a fabolous job. We eat vegan and have some problems finding good places to eat in Brasil, but Tapas was the best. They have several vegan dishes and the chefs offered some possibilities they... More

Been there in 2008 and last week. This is the absolutely best restaurant in Pipa. Go for the Tuna in sesame. They will recommend it to you anyway. The plates are tapas so ideal for sharing. I can't remember if they recommend you have two or three plates per person. I would say 2 is enough. The brownie (which is... More

We had probably our best meal in Pipa here. The English-speaking waitress was extremely helpful and friendly. The food, wine and cocktails were all exquisite! Especially the tuna! If I had more time in Pipa, I would definitely visit again. Great atmosphere and wonderful dining experience.

Tapas is a lovely place, where you feel welcome and at home straight away. The waitresses are nice and helpfull. We had the sesame crusted tuna and the meat in red wine sauce and chorizo. Both were cooked to perfection, and the sauces were incredible. After dinner we stayed for some great caiprinhas (try the passion fruit version) All in... More
