A Very nice place to try out tapas

Our family of three came here despite of just an average review on Yelp. A good thing that we came here. The selection of tapas was good as with the wine, all pretty reasonable in prices. We ordered the meat empanadas, mushrooms, mac & cheese, meatballs, truffle fries, and paella (tapa size). All... read more

Tapas were good. We tried the garlic mushrooms, and the shrimp and fish tacos. All good.There is always busy with customers. They have different chairs, sofas, indoor, outdoor patio. It was cozy last night. My husband and I had a nice date. A little pricey, but it's still worth trying.

This place is next to the parking structure at the San Juan Capistrano Train Station. They built an outdoor patio to enjoy the afternoon and evening breeze. Very atmospheric. I'd say romantic for the younger set. They have propane heaters to balance out the temps. It's a great people watching place as the walkway to the garage is adjacent to... More

I love going to Guapas. It's a great date night place to have some delicious tapas and amazing drinks. The atmosphere there during summer is one of my favorite places to go and hang out. The food is great, small plates that are fun to share - everything is really good. Love the owners, they are always around and talking... More

The owner came around and spoke to us about his previous restaurants and how he opened this in retirement. There is a lovely wine selection, seating from tables to couches, and the tapas are fun to share.

Great place for a night dinner with an extensive wine list. I ordered the small paella and a flan for dessert. The paella was full of flavor and spice. The seafood pieces were huge and plentiful. The sausage was great. It was a taste is Spain in a little pan. The flan was nice and creamy like it should be.... More

This is a great spot with comfortable lounging and seating inside and tables outside. Great atmosphere, friendly service, and the fig, cheese, bacon empanadas are incredible!

Love the many items on the small plates (tapas) menu. We have tried over 50% of the items and they are all wonderful! Add a salad to it, and you have a great meal! Been here over and over and love it!

Wonderful food, drinks and service. The owner and servers were very attentive and because we had a good size group, we had a lot of fun sharing all their delicious plates.
