just had dinner there...still have the horrible taste in my mouth. we had to send 1 dish back (which we never do). service was poor and very slow. the only good dish was the cheese and charcuterie. . I suspect it was good because all they had to do was slice it. we have eaten tapas all over the country... More

My husband & I were walking by and noticed this quaint little restaurant offering Tapas (and everything 100% Gluten Free) so decided to go in and grab some lunch. We sat outside on their patio and enjoyed all of the tapas we ordered. We loved this place so much that we came back another 2 times during our vacation in... More

Small plates is such a fun way to eat. This is a great place. Both food & service were great. Can't wait to go back.

I enjoy eating there whenever I go. Sometimes the service is slow but the tapas are great and the outside seating is just perfect for an afternoon enjoying good food and drink.

Had a wonderful dinner while on vacation. Our kids had never done tapas before but loved every single thing we ordered. Meats&cheeses? Loved 'em. Dolmas? Loved 'em. Grilled oysters? Loved 'em. Staff was knowledgeable and fun. Highly recommended.

Wonderful place - all 100% gluten free so I didn't have to worry about the menu! The food was excellent - definitely try the chorizo and figs, the sauce is divine! And the cheese and meat platter to start is delicious. Really tasty food which quickly fills you up!

the portions and price are appropriate for the calamari, chorizo stuffed mushrooms (my fav!) and the jamon dates; the spanish Estrella beer and the salted caramel gelato were great! the atmosphere was nice and cozy (we sat inside) and there was attentive but not overbearing service; for higher rating: the restrooms deserve a cleanup/makeover, the oysters were too garlicy and...

Great little tapas bar in Colorado Springs. The food is good, the patio in the back offers a decent experience. Two things lacking. 1. No music on patio. How about spending a little money on running a few speakers out there to improve the mood. 2. The espresso is horrible. Upon complaining the manager came over and agreed that their... More

TAPAteria is delicious. Here in Colorado Springs, over the past few years, tapas joints have been popping up here and there. Nestled in Old Colorado City is a refreshing concept with a pleasant staff and prompt service. Having been here several times, I have had the opportunity to try pretty much everything on the menu. I highly recommend the jamon... More

TAPAteria is very unique to someone from rural Kansas, and we thoroughly like the concept. We were there during the dinner hour, and chose to eat outside in their covered patio area. Our waitress, Tavia, was friendly, efficient, and informative. We enjoyed a bottle of Raimat Albarino, and shared the following tapas: Grilled Garlic Shrimp; Caprese Salad; Carne Adobada (Pork...
