Some interesting food with overpriced wines

I should have realized that this restaurant is really a tapas bar, that is, one that primarily serves food as an accompaniment to drinks. In the same vein, food service was a bit sow, perhaps in order to induce customers to drink more. They do have some full-size entrees but I decided to make... read more

My husband and I stopped in for dinner and while the service was on par, unfortunately the food was not. We ordered various tappas and frankly, with the exception of only one, the rest were not edible--over salted and just plain nasty. We mentioned something to the server who said the owner would come out to talk to us but... More

We have eaten here many times. The hospitality is always wonderful with "Bunny" greeting you as old friends. The tapas selections are somewhat limited in number but all are delicious, although portions are a bit skimpy compared to Barcelona and other Tapas restaurants.

Have had both dinner and attended their garden food and wine pairings and it's the best New London gig for fine dining out there. We just moved to area and love this place !

Dev's has an interesting selection of tapas - small portions by definition, which give you the opportunity to try lots of things. We can't go without getting the Miss Saigon bun. Also, their burgers are the best in town, hands down.

We have been coming to Dev's almost since the first day they opened 6 or 7 years ago. It is one of the places that many locals go to. Those who don't are really missing out for some completely unkonwn reason. Owner Candace is a wonderful hostess and a great person to know and will always take good care of... More

This is definitely the best restaurant in New London and maybe even the surrounding area. I love the small, friendly family atmosphere while still maintaining a perfect intimate date night atmosphere. The food is consistently delicious and perfectly proportioned. This place is a definite must if you're in the area.

I never had been to a tapas place before this one. The lady who owns it is lovely and the place is right next door to the computer shop. I went in and sat at the bar and had a cock tale. I asked the other people who were at the bar what the best things on the the tapas... More

Stopped in here for tapas and drinks during their happy hour. I'm giving this a middle of the road review, because one half of the servers were nice, one half seemed agitated to have to wait on us. One half of the food was great, one half was bland. The drinks made by the grumpy server tasted like they had... More
