Small Plates

We ordered only small plates and enjoyed it very much. The best calamari in the valley, at least from what we have tried.

The food was somewhat unique and quite good and the service excellent. We like small plates so this worked well and was reasonably priced.

Great restaurant - when we have company, this is a requested spot. Their appetizers and happy hour items are some of the best in town. Sitting on the patio in warmer weather makes for an enjoyable evening. Otherwise, grab a seat in the bar area for a GNO or a quick bite.

A short drive from Aspen finds you in the quite lovely village of Basal. Galleries are noteworthy and worth a visit. Now let's eat! Tempranillo is a Spanish tapas restaurant with a touch of Italian. The menu has a nice selection of seafood, meat and fowl and pasta. Our group of five enjoy all. My chicken picatta with lemon and... More

We had no idea going into this restaurant that it would be one of the best meals ever. For those staying in Aspen, it is worth the drive! Also, Brad, the bartender, was impressive as well as the other waitstaff.

We dined here with friends (2 couples). Love the tapas style and the menu was really fun to sample. Wine list is all Spanish and has great variety. Server was very helpful in navigating and helped us select great wines to try. I would return. Seemed like a great locals date spot.

First - hats off to the bartender who makes terrific signature cocktails and is always personable. However, I have to say the food went downhill on the last 'Ladies Nite' I attended. Maybe the regular chef was out sick? Lots of people with the flu in the RFV these days...... My Caesar's salad was limp (and there was no fresh... More

Had a wonderful Apre Ski at Tempranillo with Bradley as our bartender. Do you know he has never owned a pair of pants in his life. Love that he wears a Kilt to bartend.
