Go if you want to see the Flamenco dancer, not to eat the food

We made the decision to try this restaurant after seeing it reviewed on the PBS show "Check Please Arizona!" I had tried paella a few times previously and didn't particularly like it, but I thought my husband and kids would because they love seafood. We made reservations at the time to see the... read more

We were seated immediately for our reservation and sat outside to enjoy the weather. Waiter helped with suggestions for our order. Once I tasted the bacon wrapped dates I knew I had to come back. They were so good our table had at least 5 orders. The lamb tenderloins and the potatoes with the prosciutto (can't remember the name) were... More

What I love about Tapas is you get to try so many different plates. My favorite was the Pimiento Piquillo con centollo which was a stuffed pepper with crab. It was something I had not had the privilege of eating before but If I ever see it on a menu again you bet I will be enjoying me some Pimiento... More

Ate here during a recent business trip and was very impressed with their menu and service. The Paella is some of the best I've ever had and the tapas were outstanding. The beer selection was pretty good and the waiter brought us glass of port wine on the house, as a way to thanking our group for coming by. Overall,... More

We scouted restaurants before we arrived and decided that we would try Tapas Papa Frita even before we arrived. Well parking was a bit tough but that was the only thing off. Chef Joseph greeted us at the door and was friendly and outgoing. He made us feel welcome right from the start. The waiter made some recommendations but we... More

The food varied from good to great. The sangria- while wonderful- came in very small glasses. The server was excellent- although the food times varied quite a bit. The music and dancing was entertaining but extremely loud.

This feels like a corporate tapas restaurant. It started with a really odd greeting where we were basically scolded for trying to open the door ourselves, and then an awkward table that we should have asked to change. The food was decent, not great. The prices are pretty reasonable. The items we had tasted like they had been pre-made and... More

Been a long time since having good tapas and this place is amazing. Only place in Arizona we have found that stays open. Little pricey but the food was amazing. Ordered the seafood paella and was not overly impressed with the portion of ingredients, but the flavor was awesome.

Come on and join a great place to unwind after a long day at work. This Tapas restaurant is very relaxing and quaint. The Tapas are delicious and the drinks are just what you want to top off an enjoyable evening after work. Dinner is great too. Inside and outside dinning is available and I suggest outside since this is... More

Every bite was delicious. Both of us were amazed by everything, even the aioli with the bread I wish I had more space to eat more! Some tapas might be a little expensive but they were sooo good, I will go back for sure if I go back to Phoenix! Only thing was the door going outside just behind me... More
