Please note: the correct address is 902 N Market St Wilmington, DE 19801. I brought my mom here for her birthday. They made special accommodations for her celebration, which was sweet. We really enjoyed the various tapas that were offered (our favorite was the eggplant). I would come back again - it's a nice, charming restaurant (something you do not... More

The Iberica Bread is a religous experience. No one in Delaware does flat bread correctly other than them. Scallop items are fabulous, the empanadas are yummy. Really nice bar staff and goo Cava.

Small plates, very delicious. Great for sharing. Very good service. Located in a part of town that is up and coming and trying to become very nice.

We went pre-theatre on a weeknight. They were busy, because two theaters had shows that evening, but, still--it took 15 minutes to get wine and 25 minutes to get the first course (which didn't need to be cooked- just slice and plate.). The food WAS good, but I certainly won't go again when I have a deadline.

I arrived about 4:40 PM and the waiter informed me that they did not open till five, but that I could have a drink at the bar and wait. I told him I was very hungry, and didn't want to drink on an empty stomach. He checked with the chef, and allowed me to come in and order food immediately.... More

I visited yesterday for the first time since Orillas moved into their "new" space. The atmosphere is terrific-white linen table cloths, recorded spanish music playing with dark woods and many tables for 2. Although the tapas menu wasn't huge, it had more than enough choices in meats, seafoods, vegetables and traditional Spanish dishes. They also have a sandwich and salad... More

I love Tapas, and have been fortunate to eat them all over the U.S., and all over the world (including extensively in Spain). Orillas has very good food, decent sangria, at fair enough prices. Service was nice, and the atmosphere is pleasant. I don't agree with some of the reviews that rate it 5*'s (Tripadvisor says this is "Excellent", folks... More

Recently went to orillas for dinner on Friday night without a reservation. Hostess was very accommodating enough to find us a table within 5 minutes even though they were quite busy. The layout was superb with exposed beams. Also had a great musician singing live. The tapas were so delicious and huge. Of course we had the famous honey drizzled... More

We ate at Orillas Tapas Restaurant before a show midweek at the Delaware Theater Company. Classy atmosphere and it was clear that much attention is paid to food quality, preparation and menu variety. Our server was well versed in the menu and made several helpful recommendations. Our only complaint was that due to "being very busy earlier in the week"... More
